Get White Teeth With Tooth Whitening In Arlington VA
While our teeth are naturally lustrous and white, over time they will become discolored due to habits, foods, and beverages such as:
Poor oral hygiene
- Smoking or chewing tobacco
- Red wine
- Fruits and fruit juices
Good oral hygiene goes a long way toward keeping your smile bright, but sometimes we need a little help.
Teeth whitening is a safe, effective, and fast way to add noticeable vitality to your smile.
At Columbia Pike Family Dentistry in Arlington VA, we recommend Zoom! in-office tooth whitening. You relax comfortably in the dental chair while a trained technician applies the Zoom! deep-bleaching gel. As you listen to music or watch a movie, a special light, focused directly on your teeth, activates the gel. It penetrates deeply, breaking up even tough stains and discoloration. The hygienist reapplies the gel every 15 minutes for three cycles, so a full treatment takes only about an hour.
“My hygienist was extremely professional and walked me through the entire process of cleaning my teeth. Even though I have not been to a dentist in two years (I know, I know, don’t tell my mom) she was still very respectful and had a great bedside manner.
I already made my six month follow up appointment and am all amped up about flossing now.”
– Kimberly S.
Do you prefer to whiten gradually, in the privacy of your home?
Dr. Kohli will take exact molds (impressions) of your mouth to create comfortable, custom-fit trays. These clear plastic trays hold prescription-grade whitening gel on your teeth, protecting your cheeks, gums, and tongue. You wear them for two-to-three hours each day to see full results in about two weeks. We’ll be happy to provide additional gel so that you may continue to use the trays periodically to maintain that brilliant white smile.
It’s important to have an experienced dentist help you determine the best whitening method for you. For example, Dr. Kohli evaluates the color and condition of your natural teeth. She will counsel you about whether any existing, older dental work should be replaced prior to whitening, since restorations like crowns and fillings do not respond to the bleaching agent. She takes time to understand your whitening goals, selecting the desired shade, and monitoring your progress to get your smile to that point, safely and effectively.
For an instant boost to your smile and your self-confidence, consider teeth whitening. Then call Columbia Pike Family Dentistry for an appointment if you are in the Rosslyn – Arlington VA area!
