Teeth Whitening Options
Northern Virginia, including Arlington, Tysons Corner, Alexandria, Fairfax, and McLean, Virginia
The cosmetic dentists in Tysons Corner, Virginia have whitened and brightened the smiles of numerous Northern Virginia residents. In some cases, teeth whitening alone can make a drastic difference in a patient’s smile. Other patients require whitening in conjunction with more complex procedures to achieve the smile they desire. Whatever your situation, Dr. Lee, Dr. Oh and Dr. Mortazie can assess your smile and provide you with the best teeth whitening options for your smile.
In-office Teeth Whitening
Professionally-applied, in-office teeth whitening is the most effective way to achieve a white smile in approximately 45 minutes. Our office uses ZOOM! tooth whitening, one of the most state-of-the-art whitening systems available today, to help you whiten your teeth up to eight shades lighter. The special gel and light activation can take your smile up to ten shades brighter in just one visit.
At-home Whitening Trays
If immediate results are not important to you, professional at-home whitening trays are also available from Galleria Dental Aesthetics. As opposed to over-the-counter whitening systems, our at-home systems incorporate a custom-made whitening tray that is designed to precisely fit the shape and curves of your smile.
Over-the-Counter Whitening Strips
At Galleria Dental Aesthetics we do not recommend over-the-counter whitening strips. Inconsistent whitening over the tooth surface is probable because the strips are not molded to fit the nooks and crannies of your smile. Saliva can also interfere with the process, which can take up to 30 days.
Porcelain Veneers and Tooth Bonding
In some cases, teeth whitening is not sufficient to help our patients achieve their goal. We may recommend porcelain veneers or tooth bonding to fix problem teeth. In either procedure, the materials used can be matched to the patient’s existing teeth or created in the patient’s desired shade of white. Porcelain veneers have an added bonus: they will not succumb to future discoloration or stains.
