Teeth Whitening

Would you like to revive a dull or worn smile? Do you hide your smile because you’re embarrassed about stained, discolored teeth?

At Blue Bird Dentistry, we focus on helping you achieve optimal oral health, but it’s also crucial for your self-confidence to have beautiful, bright teeth that make you proud to smile.

Dr. Mohamed Elnahass provides convenient teeth whitening options that can be performed in our office or used in the privacy of your home. Which we choose depends on your expectations and how quickly you would like to see results.

There are several reasons why teeth discolor and become dull over time. Factors like age, consumption of stain-producing foods and drinks, and tobacco use can all cause teeth to lose their bright, youthful appearance. It’s no wonder that teeth whitening is the single most requested cosmetic treatment in dental offices today!

Quick and Easy In-Office Treatment

If you have a tight timeline for a wedding or other big event, professional teeth whitening at our Fredericksburg, VA dental practice is the answer for you. The process is fast, effective, and gets you in and out of our office in about an hour.

For the most consistent results, we always recommend a professional dental cleaning before any whitening treatment. The cleaning ensures that your teeth and gums are healthy, and also eliminates any plaque and tartar buildup that can minimize the whitening effects.

How Does In-Office Whitening Work?

First, we protect your lips and gums so that only your teeth are exposed; then the prescription-strength whitening gel is applied to the surface of the teeth. A curing light with an infrared filter reduces the heat to which your teeth are exposed. The entire process takes about 45 minutes.

Our in-office whitening will lighten your teeth by about six to eight shades in one session. You should know, however, that teeth whitening treatments will not whiten dental restorations like crowns or fillings.

Convenient Take-Home Whitening Kits

Many of our patients choose to whiten their teeth at home at and at their own pace. If that's your preference, our customized take-home whitening kit will do the job for you. We start by taking impressions of your teeth so we can fabricate a whitening tray that fits snugly over your teeth.

We provide everything you need including the tray, the whitener, and complete instructions on how to use the kit. Just place the whitening gel in the tray and wear it for about 15 to 30 minutes – your hygienist will tell you the length of time that will provide the desired results.

When used every day for two weeks, you will see similar results to those of a professional whitening treatment done at our office.
