Teeth Whitening

Have you noticed that your teeth aren't as white and bright as they used to be?

Do stains or yellowed teeth make you reluctant to talk, eat, or smile around other people?

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your teeth?

We can help! 

Our Herndon, VA dental office offers a teeth whitening system that is a safe, simple treatment option. Teeth whitening can brighten up teeth that have become yellowed over time or stained by food, drinks, or smoking, among other causes. Patients who maintain good dental health can even receive the whitening kit for free! Restrictions do apply, so please call the clinic for more details.

What Causes Yellowed or Stained Teeth?

There are many factors that can reduce the whiteness of your teeth. Eating and drinking staining foods such as berries, coffee, tea, and red wine can leave stains on your teeth. Keep this in mind – if it stains your shirt, it can stain your teeth! Smoking also leads to yellow-to-brown nicotine stains over time, which can look unhealthy and make you embarrassed to smile.

Even if you brush and floss properly, are a non-smoker, and avoid staining foods and beverages, you may notice some discoloration of your teeth as you get older. This is a natural part of aging, but the effect can be reversed through teeth whitening.

Some medications can cause teeth to become discolored, and teeth with large amalgam fillings can take on a gray-to-blue hue as the dark amalgam shows through the translucent enamel. These types of discoloration are difficult to treat with bleaching; Dr. Ahmad will discuss the results you can expect with our whitening system as well as other treatment options that may be available to you.

How Can I Whiten My Teeth?

Herndon dentist Dr. Ahmad will perform a full examination and discuss your expectations with you. We want to make sure you get the results you want from your treatment! If you determine that our teeth whitening system is right for you, we will create a set of trays specifically fitted to your teeth. These custom-fitted trays ensure optimal results and help prevent leakage of the whitening gel.

Our take-home whitening kit is easy and convenient to use. Simply add the whitening gel to your trays as instructed and place them over your teeth. We will discuss how long to leave the trays on for best results. You should see improvement in the color of your teeth within a week, and in most cases, a four-to-six week treatment will give you the results of your dreams!

Keep Your Smile Bright and Beautiful

We know the value of a beautiful, healthy smile, which is why we created a way to reward our patients who take their dental care seriously. With our Free Teeth Whitening for Life plan, you can receive your custom-fitted whitening trays and bleaching gel free –for life! New patients can take advantage of this offer by making and keeping your appointment for a new patient exam, x-ray, and cleaning. Existing patients who are following the treatment plan recommended by Dr. Ahmad already qualify.

To maintain eligibility for this treatment plan, simply continue to make (and keep) your recommended appointments for an exam and cleaning every six months and keep your dental treatment and payment account current. As long as you are meeting the eligibility requirements, you qualify for free touch-up whitening gel for life!

The best part of our free take-home whitening system is that it's a life-long tool you can use to keep your teeth beautifully white. Most of our patients find that wearing the trays for a few days when they feel their teeth are losing some of their brightness can bring them right back up to the desired appearance. The time between treatments varies: some patients do touch-up whitening every six months while for others, once every two years is enough to keep their smile pearly white!
