Professional Teeth Whitening
Warrenton, VA Dentist
At the office of Dr. John W. Harre, DDS, we provide professional teeth whitening solutions to brighten your smile. Teeth whitening may be a great option if you have stained, dull or discolored teeth. The main causes of stained teeth are genetics, antibiotics, tobacco and certain foods. As we age, our teeth darken as well.
Dr. Harre will explore different whitening options to achieve your desired results. We will evaluate your smile and ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening.
There are a variety of options when looking to brighten your teeth:
Take Home Teeth Whitening Treatment
We offer two options for custom-fitted whitening trays at our dental office. With at-home whitening, results can be noticed right away, but it may take up to two weeks to see full results. We recommend using custom fitted trays for precise application of the whitening agent. This helps to prevent irritation to the soft tissue (gums).
In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment
We will cover your gums and soft tissues with a protective barrier for your safety. Then a professional-strength whitening gel is applied. When the gel is removed in about an hour, your smile will be 3-8 shades whiter.
Our dental team is devoted to helping you achieve and maintain a beautiful and healthy smile. If you are considering teeth whitening, contact us for a consultation. We will recommend a method that is best for your individual needs.
