Take-home Whitening Kits in Alexandria, VA

Convenient Take-Home Whitening Kits

There’s nothing like a whiter smile to brighten your day. Whiter teeth are not only more pleasing to the eye, they can also boost self-confidence and make you appear more professional. Your Dental Associates of Northern Virginia dentist will help you choose an effective and affordable solution that delivers the greatest impact with the least amount of time spent in the dentist’s chair.

Take-home whitening kits are ideal for patients who wish to achieve professional results in the comfort of their own homes, but under the guidance of a licensed dental expert.

The benefits of take-home whitening.

At Dental Associates of Northern Virginia, we’ve found that many patients can’t afford to spend time at our dental offices for professional in-office whitening treatments. Take-home whitening products offer a convenient, but effective alternative. Used as directed, these take home kits help patients achieve dramatic results under the professional guidance of our Dental Associates dentists—and with far fewer trips to our offices.

Get a noticeably brighter smile at home.

Your Dental Associates dentist knows your oral health and thoroughly understands the whitening process. She or he will also be aware of any possible sensitivities that may occur. Under our expert guidance, you can achieve the results you desire in far less time than with most over-the-counter whitening products, such as toothpastes or strips. Your dentist will closely monitor your progress to ensure you get the greatest results in the fastest and safest way possible.

There are two types of stains that whitening products address. Surface stains, called extrinsic stains, appear only on the outer layer of your teeth. Deeper stains, known as intrinsic stains, are buried deep within the dentin underneath your tooth’s surface. These deeper stains live within your teeth’s tiny cracks, making them more difficult to reach. Your Dental Associates dentist will recommend the whitening product that best addresses the specific type of stain affecting your teeth.

How take-home teeth whitening kits work.

You can trust your Dental Associates of Northern Virginia dentist to recommend the best whitening product for you needs, whether it’s an in-office treatment, over-the-counter one, or take-home whitening kit. To be effective, all whitening products must contain some form of active ingredient. In most cases, this means hydrogen peroxide. When oxygen causes the whitening agent to react with the discolored molecules that cause staining, the stain molecules break apart, leaving behind whiter, brighter teeth.

Over-the-counter whitening vs. take-home whitening.

Although there are many products available at a retail level, the whitening experts at Dental Associates of Northern Virginia know your teeth. They will take into consideration your current stain level, any known sensitivities that might occur, as well as the whitening level you hope to achieve. You’ll get improved whitening results in less time with guidance from a professional dentist who understands your needs.

Feel good about your smile again.

When you’re confident about your smile, people notice. The teeth whitening experts at Dental Associates of Northern Virginia understand how to help you regain your whiter smile and the greater self-confidence that follows. Ask us to recommend the most suitable whitening method for you and your teeth.
