Teeth Whitening An Overview
Professional teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to transform your smile, providing the makeover many patients desire for a wedding, special event- or just to restore their youthful smile.
Teeth whitening provided by the dentist delivers more dramatic and comfortable results compared to over-the-counter products like whitening strips or toothpaste. In a recent survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), when respondents were asked what they would like to improve about their smile, almost all said that they would like “whiter and brighter teeth.”
I've been in DC for 8 years and I've finally found a dentist I can trust here! Always on time and I get calls from my dentist personally checking on me after getting a difficult filling done. Great place to go!Laura R.
I like going to this dentist and recommend Dr. Arroyo to people whenever I hear someone is looking for a referral. Beyond the easy scheduling and convenient appointments, the staff is just really cool. Rachel (the dental hygienist) is fun to talk to, even at 7:30 in the AM, and…Nora G.
When I first moved to DC from the suburbs, I'd just received an evaluation from an Arlington dentist suggesting I needed thousands of dollars of dental work. To my great surprise, Dr. Arroyo the younger looked it over, did new x-rays, and declared almost all of it to be unnecessary,…Lydia B.
Teeth Whitening What to Expect
Washington DC cosmetic dentists Dr. John and Dr. Jeremi Arroyo offer both in office and take home teeth whitening treatments depending on your personal needs or goals.
In Office Teeth Whitening with KoR
Arroyo Center for Aesthetic Dentistry offers the KoR Whitening Deep Bleaching System, a customized teeth whitening kit that has proven highly successful, even on teeth stained by medications such as tetracycline. The KoR Teeth Whitening System offers exceptional results with little to no sensitivity and can whiten teeth up to 16 shades lighter. This product combines take home kit with an in office visit for maximum whitening results.
Dr. John or Dr. Jeremi Arroyo will take a professional mold of a patient’s teeth to create custom fit bleaching molds that are worn nightly over a period of two weeks, during which your teeth will slowly become whiter, brighter and more youthful in appearance. After this process is complete, patients come in for a final visit to complete the process. With periodic touch ups, the KoR whitening system offers permanent results.
Take Home Teeth Whitening
For patients who would prefer to gradually whiten their teeth at home, we offer the Opalescence take home teeth whitening kit.
Dr. John or Dr. Jeremi will take impressions of your teeth to create custom fit professional bleaching trays to be used at home. These trays will ensure an even distribution of the bleaching agent and minimize irritation of the gums and cheeks. Your dentist will provide instructions on when and how long to wear the bleaching trays each day, depending on the severity of stains and desired results.
