If you live in Falls Church or the surrounding communities, you can benefit from our Falls Church teeth whitening services. At Dougherty DDS, we are known for improving the appearance of our patients’ smiles. Our natural teeth are meant to be white, bright, and attractive. But over the years, the color of our teeth become dull and discolored. The reason? Wear and tear, and because certain foods and beverages have stained our teeth. The truth is, over-the-counter whitening pastes, rinses, strips and other home remedies can only do so much. To get a truly brighter, whiter smile, you’ll need teeth whitening in Falls Church at Dougherty DDS We often recommend teeth bleaching treatments because it is by far the easiest way to transform your smile. Cosmetic dentistry patients who have come to us with the same problem, walk out later feeling like a million bucks because their smiles have been restored!
TYPES OF WHITENING
There are several types of teeth bleaching that you can try. People typically start by using whitening toothpaste at home. This can help to brighten your teeth but is typically not enough to actually whiten them. We recommend toothpaste as part of an overall teeth whitening treatment but not by itself. After professional whitening, the toothpaste can help your teeth stay bright.
Many people may try over the counter solutions like whitening trays or strips. These treatments work but not as well as professional solutions. As with most things, what you buy in the store is simply not as strong as what you can get from a medical professional. Additionally, store bought whitening trays are designed to fit everyone’s teeth, not your teeth specifically. This means that they can become loose, and the solution can leak, leading to gum irritation.
We recommend that people in Falls Church schedule an appointment with our experienced dental team instead. Our professional tooth whitening solutions can transform the appearance of your teeth in a dynamic way. This is partially due to the strength of the solution that we use. Professional grade whitening gel can whiten teeth by eight shades or more vs. around two shades with store bought solutions. If you are looking for immediate and dramatic results, in-office whitening is a far better option.
OUR Falls Church TEETH WHITENING OPTIONS
Our office provides top-tier whitening using a professional-strength whitening gel. The gel penetrates the enamel to lift years of stains beneath the surface, revealing your natural color within.
There are two types of professional whitening: in-office whitening and take-home whitening kits. Both options have advantages, so it’s up to you to decide which one seems right for you.
Chairside teeth whitening uses the highest-strength whitening solution available, offering powerful results. Your treatment is carefully applied and monitored by a dental professional, who ensures that your treatment is uniform across your smile and works to minimize tooth sensitivity.
A single visit can be done in as little as an hour. You’ll be able to see on a color chart where your teeth rank before or after treatment so that you can be sure of your results. Depending on the staining level, your enamel may be brightened by up to eight shades.
Take-home Whitening Kits
For those whose hectic schedules make dental visits tricky, take-home whitening kits provide a convenient alternative. These simple kits include a customized whitening tray crafted to fit your unique smile to provide more effective and even results on every tooth.
You can use whitening kits to brighten your smile when and where it’s most convenient for you. Simply follow the dentist’s instructions carefully, and your teeth will be noticeably brighter within hours. These kits are also great for touchups before a big event.
Opalescence offers a wide range of tooth whitening products designed to brighten your smile. With custom designed take home, on-the-go, and in-office options, Opalescence Tooth Whitening Systems accommodate all lifestyles and budgets.
Prescription-strength Opalescence Tooth Whitening Systems are stronger and more effective than over-the-counter teeth whitening products and provide several distinct advantages over other teeth whitening options in the industry:
Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are only available through your dentist. While using the Opalescence Tooth Whitening System, your dentist will supervise your treatment from initial consultation through completion. The special whitening gel will not affect your gums, and in many cases can help improve your oral health by strengthening tooth enamel, decreasing sensitivity, and offering increased cavity prevention.
Powerful, prescription-strength Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are available in varying strengths depending on your dental needs. Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels can provide results after just one night, although results may vary and can take up to a week before you experience noticeable changes.
Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are delivered through customized bleaching trays designed to fit your unique smile. Your dentist will create your personal trays from an alginate impression of your mouth; this customization is part of what makes Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels so effective.
