Professional Teeth Whitening

One of the easiest and most effective ways to get a great smile is to whiten your teeth. North River Dental Care offers several professional teeth whitening options to help you show off your pearly whites to their best advantage.

Teeth can become discolored for a variety of reasons. Smoking, drinking beverages that contain tannins (such as coffee, tea, and wine), certain medications, dental hygiene issues, and simple aging can all stain your teeth. But even the most discolored teeth don’t have to stay that way! Dr. Bailey and our friendly staff can help you reach your goal of a bright smile with professional teeth whitening. We offer in-office treatment as well as safe, effective options you can use at home!

Teeth Whitening FAQs

How long does teeth whitening last?

Results will vary based on the individual. However, it is typical for teeth whitening to last from six months to several years. Practicing good oral hygiene and healthy dental habits will extend your results. If you frequently drink beverages such as coffee, wine, and soda, your results will not last as long and you may require more frequent “touch-ups” to maintain your results. Regular visits for cleanings and checkups at our Fredericksburg office will also help.

Is teeth whitening safe for me?

Yes! Teeth whitening has been shown by multiple studies to be safe for patients ages 14 and older. What’s more, our team will give you detailed instructions and answer any questions that you might have along the way. Keep in mind that restorations (crowns, veneers, etc.) will not respond to tooth whitening, but that there are other options available that can improve these areas. Contact North River Dental Care to schedule a teeth whitening consultation to find out if whitening is an option for your smile.

Will whitening make my teeth sensitive permanently?

Sensitivity caused by tooth whitening is temporary. Your teeth will generally return to their pre-whitening sensitivity level a few days of the whitening process is complete. Our team can also help you take steps before you whiten to minimize any sensitivity that may occur during the process.

Dr. Bailey and our team are committed to providing patients with effective and safe teeth whitening options. Whether in the comfort of your own home or in our Fredericksburg, VA dental office, we will maximize your teeth whitening results and give you the dazzling smile you’ve always wanted.
