Professional Teeth Whitening in Fairfax, VA
If your smile is not as bright and white as you would like it to be, or if you feel self-conscious about the dark color of your teeth, we can help. Professional teeth whitening in Fairfax is an easy, noninvasive way to give your smile a lift and a great way to boost your confidence.
Some patients decide on professional teeth whitening before significant events like weddings or reunions, but there is never a wrong time to whiten your smile!
How Teeth Whitening Works
The journey to a whiter smile begins with an exam and chat with Dr. Caitlin Hulver. Considerations for professional teeth whitening include the health of your teeth and gums and any restorations or wellness issues that you may have.
However, restorations or specific oral health issues do not necessarily rule out professional teeth whitening. Still, it’s important to remember that restorations like tooth-colored fillings and dental crowns will not whiten with this therapy.
If Dr. Hulver determines that you are a good candidate for professional teeth whitening, we then decide which option best fits your needs and smile goals.
Metropolitan Dental Centre is a KoR Whitening provider - which gives phenomenal results, without lights or lasers. And with much less (usually no) sensitivity! KoR Whitening allows us to whiten cases once thought to be impossible - dark, grey teeth, and Tetracycline stained teeth. The KoR system utilizes a combination of custom trays to be worn overnight, and in-office whitening treatments to get patients to their desired shade. The whitening results are powerful, and our patients are consistently amazed that they don't have any sensitivity. If you have attempted to whiten your teeth in the past without success, call our office to discuss the KoR difference!
Our take-home custom trays start with an impression of your smile. We use this impression to create custom take-home trays for you. Each tooth fits into a receptacle on your custom tray along with a drop of our prescription-strength whitening gel. A member of our team will provide specific instructions to help you safely lift away brown and yellow tooth stains while you sleep.
If you already have a set of custom whitening trays, you can also purchase whitening gel in our office for periodic touch-ups, or as part of ongoing treatment.
Why Professional Teeth Whitening Is Your Best Option
If you’ve used over-the-counter kits and gels, you may have been disappointed with the results. Over-the-counter trays, for example, can mean uneven whitening or even striped teeth. The products are not prescription-strength, which means they may not get rid of stubborn stains. Additionally, when you use store-bought systems, the product itself can be abrasive and contribute to tooth sensitivity.
When whitening your smile, we recommend doing so under the discretion of a dental professional for optimal results and to make sure your teeth and gums are in good shape for bleaching.
