Washington DC Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening in Washington DC


Today, teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures requested, and with various options such as in-office or take-home trays, it is now easier than ever to brighten your smile.

We use two primary services for whitening:

  • Zoom! In-Office Power Whitening

  • Professional Zoom! Home Whitening Trays

Whitening/Bleaching Take-Home Trays

After the first initial visit to our office, your custom whitening trays will be ready for you to take home. We provide you with a special whitening agent that is placed into the clear trays as an effective whitening treatment from the convenience of your home.

With usually less than an hour of wear per day, the take-home whitening product can lift stubborn stains without altering tooth structure or existing dental work. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.

Using the latest whitening technology, we can offer a safe and effective method for creating a beautiful, brilliant smile.

Key Benefits

  • Corrects brown, yellow, and spotted tooth staining
  • Works on people of any age
  • An excellent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness

For confidence in appearance, whitening technology allows us to offer improvements in yellowing, aging, or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.


Why Professional Tooth Whitening?

Professional whitening products are robust solutions that allow the teeth to be whitened in a shorter period of time and with more effectiveness than over-the-counter options.

Certain products available through retailers have the potential to harm the teeth and gums when not used properly. Care must be taken to ensure no harm is done that can permanently damage the appearance of the smile, and this is why professional whitening options remain the best choice.

When To Avoid Tooth Whitening

Certain stains resist whitening treatments; thus, other options may need to be considered. These include crowns, bonding, and porcelain veneers. Transparent teeth, especially those in the front of the mouth, won’t benefit from tooth whitening procedures. The dentist works with each patient to determine what results they can expect and what options are available to them.

Individuals with extensive dental work may find they aren’t good candidates, as the veneers, crowns, or bridges won’t respond to the whitening treatment. Those undergoing orthodontic treatments need to wait until the treatment plan is complete before having their teeth whitened. A dentist determines who is the right candidate for this type of procedure and when it should be completed.

If you feel your teeth are holding you back either personally or professionally, now is the time to consider professional whitening. With this quick and easy procedure, you can improve the appearance of your smile in only one visit. Learn more about our cosmetic dentistry services including our dental veneers.
