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. 

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!
