Whether you’re looking for convenience, dramatic results, or something simple to use, our Dental Associates professionals in Northern Virginia offer all the latest whitening products to keep your smile absolutely glowing.

Which whitening method is right for me?

Whiter teeth have become the top aesthetic objective of most dental patients. This quest for whiter teeth has led to many new, effective, and convenient ways to get noticeably brighter results. The whitening experts at Dental Associates will help you choose just the right product to ensure the results you’re hoping for. If you’re looking for fast, reliable, safe, and effective in-office bleaching, we’ll help you get a noticeably brighter smile in as little as one visit.

How do whitening treatments work?

Most teeth whitening and bleaching products are fairly straightforward methods that change the shade of your tooth enamel in a noninvasive, in-office dental procedure. They are an ideal way to improve the look of your smile without excessive costs or spending excessive amounts of time in the dentist’s chair.
Even better, some whitening treatments available from your Dental Associates dentist can be used at home. Whatever the choice, you may see teeth up to six shades whiter after only two weeks of treatment. In-office bleaching is another popular option that produces fast results.

Will whitening harm my dental work?

While whitening is generally safe–even for those with fillings, crowns, and other restorations–it only works on your teeth’s natural enamel. Therefore, if you’re planning to have any type of replacement work done, you should do so after, rather than before bleaching. This way, your Dental Associates dentist can more closely match your restorations to the current shade of your brightened teeth.

How long do whitening treatments last?

Although teeth whitening treatments last for a reasonably long period of time, none are permanent. Most will require touch-ups after several years. The need for touch-ups may be even greater if you smoke or drink coffee, tea, or wine.

Why do my teeth need whitening?

The reasons for whitening vary by patient. Some of the most popular reasons for whitening include fluorosis, the spotting of teeth caused by excess fluoridation during their development. For other patients, teeth simply loose their natural glow from normal wear and tear on the outer tooth surface. Some patients complain of staining from medications like tetracycline. While others simply have naturally yellowed or stained teeth.

How can I be sure I’m getting the best whitening method for my teeth?

Your Dental Associates of Northern Virginia dentist will advise you based on your objectives for whitening, discussion of any medications you take regularly, and your daily habits such as smoking or drinking coffee. Your answers will help your Dental Associates professionals determine the most effective whitening solution for your needs. Regardless of which regimen your dentist recommends, you can count on a noticeably whiter, brighter smile after only a few treatments.

Which whitening treatment is best for my needs?

Your Dental Associates of Northern Virginia office offers a number of whitening alternatives. We will help you find the right one based on your individual goals and needs. Much will depend on how deeply stained your current enamel is and how fast you hope to see results. Let us help you get the brighter smile you’ve always dreamed of.
