Welcome to South Fork Dentistry, your local cosmetic dentist in Purcellville! If you want to improve the appearance of your smile, we offer multiple options to achieve it. One of the easiest and most effective ways is through teeth whitening, and we have a range of professional solutions that can transform your smile.
How It Works
When a whitening solution is applied to the teeth, the hydrogen peroxide inside of the solution penetrates through the enamel. It then starts the oxidation process where molecules are transformed to reflect less or no light. This makes them appear colorless, and teeth appear white. This process is typically extremely effective for eliminating stains and can be repeated frequently.
If your stains are too strong for a teeth bleaching procedure, we offer alternative treatments like dental veneers. However, we recommend trying teeth whitening first as it is non-invasive and can often provide excellent results.
It's also important to have your teeth whitened before getting any dental restorations like crowns, veneers, bridges, or implants. These materials are stain and bleach resistant and are created to match the shade of your surrounding teeth. If your surrounding teeth are yellow, the restorations will be too.
Our teeth whitening procedure is painless and easy to complete, and we recommend scheduling a dental exam first to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening. To learn more or to get started, call (703) 621-0992 and schedule an appointment today!
