Candidates for Teeth Whitening
Type of Stain
Though we can usually lift surface-level stains, deep stains or damaged enamel may not respond to teeth whitening. Your dentist will help you determine if an alternative treatment may be a better option for you.
Patients who have UV sensitivity, are taking drugs that make them sensitive to light, or are undergoing photo-chemotherapy should discuss teeth whitening with their dentist and primary care doctor before undergoing whitening treatments.

Financing and Insurance
Because teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic procedure, dental insurance won't cover it; however, we accept CareCredit® financing which helps patients pay for treatment in affordable monthly installments.
How Does In-Office Treatment Work?
While the professional bleaching solution is powerful, your dentist will adjust the concentration to meet your unique needs and safely whiten your smile.
At-Home Whitening Kits
Some patients prefer to undergo whitening in the comfort of their own homes. Our Fairfax, VA, dental practice also offers professional whitening kits you can take home with you and use on your own schedule. These kits work much better than store-bought whitening products as the solution and the bleaching trays are customized to your teeth for maximum whitening benefits. Simply wear your trays for 30 minutes each day for two weeks and achieve a brighter smile from home.
Alternatives to Teeth Whitening
Porcelain veneers conceal deep stains and other dental flaws to give your smile a whiter, more symmetrical appearance.
Dental bonding can quickly cover stained teeth and address minor chips, cracks, and gaps for a brighter, healthier-looking smile.
Teeth Whitening Questions and Answers
