Teeth Whitening in Woodbridge, VA

Do you want to look younger and more attractive? Make an appointment at our dental clinic for teeth whitening. Your teeth can be four-to-eight shades whiter in just a couple of days.

There are many products on the market that claim to whiten your teeth and might even do so - a little bit. However, in order to whiten teeth without damaging your tooth enamel or your gums, it is wise to consult with a professional, such as our dentist in Woodbridge, Virginia. Whiter Teeth give you many reasons to smile. You'll feel more appealing and more confident. Most importantly, you can turn back the clock on your teeth and look younger.

Brighten Your Smile with Polar White

Our dentist uses the Polar White teeth-whitening system to give you a brighter, whiter smile. The chemists at Polar White have created a safe and effective bleaching gel that produces results. We combine this proprietary gel with LED blue light technology to whiten teeth faster. After examining the many professional products available, we find that Polar White gives our patients exactly what they want—whiter teeth. The entire process is quick, easy, painless, and affordable. Let us whiten your teeth at our dental clinic. We can send a kit home with you that have the instructions needed to get started. Count on us for giving you something to smile about no matter which option you choose.

In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment

Our dentist begins your teeth-whitening treatment by first cleaning your teeth. Once your teeth are freshly brushed and flossed, we provide you with two trays filled with bleaching gel. We place one tray on your upper teeth and another on your lower teeth and then activate the gel with a special light. The light causes the gel to quickly and effectively remove stains. The treatment takes between 30–60 minutes.

When we take the trays out of your mouth, be prepared for dazzling results. Your teeth will be much, much whiter after just one session with us. To whiten your teeth even more, come back for additional sessions. You might want to return to our dental clinic once or twice a year or when you notice that coffee and soda are dulling your smile.

In-office teeth whitening is the fastest, safest, and most successful method. Studies have shown that this type of teeth whitening is powerful, but gentle, working on stains and not harming your tooth enamel or gums.

At Home Teeth Whitening

Many of our patients prefer the convenience and privacy of their own homes to whiten their teeth. Whether it is your first time or you are touching up your pearly whites, our dentist provides you with custom teeth-whitening trays that you can take home.

The process starts with a visit to our dentist’s office where our professionals will walk you through the procedure. Again, we use the Polar White system that comes with trays filled with bleaching gel and a tiny blue light. This blue-light device is attached to the front of the trays and beams waves of light at your teeth to activate the whitening gel. The light and the proprietary gel are what make the Polar White’s process superior to kits that you can pick up at the store. This teeth-whitening system makes this method far more successful at brightening your smile.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

On the surface of your teeth is a strong but porous layer of enamel that acts as protection. Stains from food and tobacco not only stain the outer layer of your teeth, but penetrate to the dentin inside. Thus, your teeth appear darker or discolored on the outer, as well as the inner, layer.

We use teeth-bleaching gel that contains carbamide peroxide. This substance breaks down into ions that get into the pores of your teeth to fight stains while whitening and lightening both layers for a brilliant smile. Over the course of your life, what you eat and drink can stain your teeth. In addition to smoking cigarettes or cigars and chewing tobacco, teeth become stained from food and beverages that include:

  • Coffee
  • Carbonated Beverages
  • Wine
  • Sports Drinks
  • Tea
  • Fruit Juices

Health Benefits from Teeth Whitening

Did you know that whitening your teeth offers health benefits? This treatment is more than just aesthetic. People who whiten their teeth take care to practice good oral hygiene and protect their investment with regular flossing, brushing, and dental checkups. Studies also show that the gel used to whiten your teeth destroys bacteria in your mouth. It is the uncontrolled growth and build-up of bacteria that leads to tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.
