Teeth Whitening – Reston, VA

Enhancing Smiles in Less Time

Types of Tooth Stains

There are two different types of stains that can develop on teeth: intrinsic and extrinsic.

The first is much more severe and is often caused by serious trauma, overuse of antibiotics/medications, aging or thinning of the enamel, or too much fluoride ingested as a child. Although viewed as harder to remove, professional teeth whitening can effectively blast away these stubborn, deep-down stains.

The latter is considered more “on the surface” stains. These develop as a result of eating/drinking dark-colored foods and beverages, smoking or tobacco use, or general erosion of the tooth enamel. These stains can often be removed with regular brushing or using teeth whitening toothpaste; however, if they are more significant, it will require the help of professional whitening.

In-Office Whitening

The before and after results of teeth whitening treatment

At Smile by Myles, we use Zoom! Teeth Whitening to give patients whiter, brighter smiles. Our in-office treatment takes about an hour to achieve long-lasting results. Should you opt to allow our team to perform this method of treatment, we will apply the high-grade, professional whitening gel to your teeth and use a special light to permeate through your tooth enamel and rid your teeth of unsightly stains and discoloration, even those that are buried deep within the cracks and small crevices. What you will see when finished with in-house whitening is a smile that is radiant and bright.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

To supplement Zoom! teeth whitening or use independently, our Reston dental professionals will create a set of custom-molded take-home trays and give you professional teeth whitening gel to use at home. The powerful bleaching gel provided as well as your detailed instructions will ensure you are using the system properly and avoid any leaking or irritation to your soft oral tissues (i.e. lips, gums).

If you exclusively use the take-home teeth whitening system, you can expect results similar to the in-office system after about two weeks of daily use.
