Teeth Whitening – Goode, VA

Results You Can Be Proud Of

Even if you manage to brush and floss every day, your teeth might get stained over time by the foods and drinks you consume.

With KoR in-office whitening and Opalescence® GO, you can achieve results you can be proud of. These state-of-the-art systems for professional teeth whitening in Goode, VA are designed to make your teeth up to ten shades brighter. If you feel like your smile is leaving something to be desired,  contact us today  to see if the Opalescence® or KoR whitening systems are right for you.

Why Choose White Cosmetic & Family Dentistry for Teeth Whitening?

Who’s a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

If you’re unhappy with your smile or you’ve been struggling with stained or discolored teeth, then professional teeth whitening might be the ideal solution for you. While your dentist can provide much more effective results compared to store-bought products, you’ll need to have good oral health before moving forward with your treatment. During your initial consultation, our team will assess your mouth and address any underlying/developing issues we might detect, that way your smile is safe and healthy first.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Here are the two types of teeth whitening procedures you can expect to choose from:

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Some patients understandably would rather achieve gradual results in the comfort of their own homes. Fortunately, KoR and Opalescence® Go can offer just that. These systems involve wearing a tray over your teeth for a prescribed amount of time each day. The tray contains a whitening agent that is significantly more potent than anything you can find in stores. You should see breathtaking results in just a few days!

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you choose to get quick results in-office, you’ll be using KoR teeth whitening to do it. First, Dr. Brandon or Julia White will use a shade guide to find the desired color of your teeth. Then, they will apply the whitening treatment with a gentle, brushed tip. Simply wait for about an hour, and you will see results you can be proud of!

What Are the Benefits of KoR & Opalescence® Teeth Whitening?

The main reason to get professional teeth whitening from your cosmetic dentist is that it’s much stronger than anything you can get over the counter. Moreover, you’ll achieve better results in a much faster time frame. The KoR and Opalescence® systems have several advantages over store-bought whitening solutions, such as:


How Can You Maintain Your Results?

Regardless of what method of teeth whitening you use, how long the results last depends on you and your lifestyle. Remember that it takes just as long to stain your teeth again as it did in the first place. The best way to maintain your dazzling smile is to practice excellent oral hygiene habits like flossing, brushing with whitening toothpaste, and seeing  Dr. Julia White or Dr. Brandon White  every six months for a checkup. It also helps to limit the following habits, or at least brush your teeth afterward:

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Do you still have questions about in-office or take-home teeth whitening? Don’t worry! We’ve answered some of the most common questions that we get from our patients below for your convenience. If you don’t see yours, be sure to  reach out to us  so we can provide you with the details you need to make a sound decision!

Is professional teeth whitening safe?

Have you heard that whitening treatments can damage your enamel and cause sensitive teeth? While this is often the case with store-bought products that haven’t been approved by the ADA, this doesn’t happen when you get professional treatment from us! We utilize KoR and Opalescence® teeth whitening systems that have been clinically tested and proven to be safe for your oral health and effective. They even contain ingredients such as potassium nitrate and fluoride to minimize sensitivity and protect your teeth from cavities!

How long do teeth whitening results last?

If you’re mindful of what foods and beverages you consume and cut down on habits that can stain your teeth, like smoking or using tobacco products, then your results can last for a year or more. If you notice your results beginning to fade, just stop by for a quick touch-up!

Can I get teeth whitening if I have restorations, like a dental crown?

Unfortunately, we don’t recommend professional teeth whitening for patients who have visible restorations, such as dental crowns, cosmetic bonding, or dental bridges. This is because they’re likely made from materials such as ceramic or porcelain that have been custom-shaded to match your surrounding teeth. If you were to receive treatment, all of your surrounding teeth would be brighter, but your restorations would stay the same shade, causing you to have different colored teeth.

Can I use my dental insurance for teeth whitening?

It’s rarely the case that a dental insurance company would ever cover the cost of professional teeth whitening. However, our team at White Cosmetic & Family Dentistry is still more than happy to help maximize your benefits wherever possible.

How much does teeth whitening cost?

There’s no set fee for teeth whitening treatment because it’s customized to meet your unique needs based on several different factors. During your consultation, we’ll examine your teeth and discuss pricing and payment options with you. We’re proud to offer additional financing options and are currently running a  teeth whitening special  for $398 treatment!
