Teeth Whitening in McLean, VA

The Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening improves the appearance of your teeth by brightening, lifting years of stains and changing the color of your overall smile. The result will create a more youthful appearance and glow. Dr. Van and her team can customize the level of whitening as it may commonly be used in combination with planning for many cosmetic procedures.

Our entire team at VanSmileDesign is committed to helping you get the smile of your dreams. Schedule your teeth whitening consultation in McLean or Vienna today!

Take-home versus In-office Teeth Whitening

An in-office professional teeth whitening treatment involves using a concentration of high-grade, prescription ingredients that is safe and more effective than at-home and over-the-counter whitening kits.

While the at-home whitening kits may be good for patients who want subtle results, an in-office professional treatment is the ideal option for patients desiring a rapid and long-term impact. We offer a professional whitening treatment that gives patients the opportunity to experience the most optimum results.

Applying the solution

A protectant gel will be applied to the gumline and a prescription-based whitening agent will be applied to the teeth. We will use an LED light to activate the product and boost its effectiveness.

Am I a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

If you have healthy teeth and gums, you are likely a good candidate for teeth whitening. We recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Van to go over all your treatment options.

How Long Does Whitening Last?

The longevity of your whitening results depends on your whitening method and enamel density as well as your daily routine and lifestyle habits. Some food and beverages may cause the teeth to become discolored and stained again. Ask Dr. Van and our team on tips to help reverse it!

What Are The Side Effects?

After any whitening procedure, tooth sensitivity and gum irritation can occur, but they are likely to subside quickly. Our McLean team recommends using an anti-sensitivity toothpaste to help minimize any discomfort.
