How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?
If you’re an ideal candidate for teeth whitening and want the convenience of whitening your teeth at home, our cosmetic dentists will create customized teeth whitening trays for you to use.
If you'd rather have your teeth whitened by our team, you can have a whiter smile in a little over an hour while you relax in our comfortable Lorton dental office. This type of teeth whitening is ideal if you'd like immediate whitening results. After your in-office whitening treatment is finished, your smile will continue to get even whiter over the next 12-24 hours.
In addition, we offer laser teeth whitening with our EPIC™ Diode Laser. Laser teeth whitening is a safe, gentle and effective option. There are no trays and you don't need to apply gels at home or wear whitening trays overnight. We will apply a special paste to your teeth in our office, then the laser is used for approximately 40 seconds per tooth.
Everyone’s smile is different, but most patients find that their teeth are lightened by 4-8 shades with laser teeth whitening.
Is Teeth Whitening Right For Me?
Teeth whitening is generally safe and most people tolerate it well. If you have intact teeth and good overall oral health, we can help you brighten and whiten your smile either at home or here in the dentist chair.
Take-home whitening is convenient, allowing you to whiten your teeth at home at your leisure. With your custom trays, you can maintain your results for years to come. We are happy to order refills of whitening gel for you at any time. In-office and laser teeth whitening is the best option if you want immediate results and don't want to deal with gels and whitening trays at home.
No matter which application you choose, Lorton Town Dental can help you easily enjoy a brighter, whiter smile!
