The teeth whitening treatment our dental team offers in Burke, Virginia, can help you have the white and brilliant smile you need to have a successful social life. It’s a simple, easy, and painless process that can provide the results you’re looking for. To help understand a little more about the process, Dr. Michael King is happy to share the details of the treatment so you can know what to expect.

First, your dentist will protect your gums from the whitening solution with a shield or rubber dam. This is necessary because the gel can irritate and even harm your gums. Next, Dr.King will carefully paint the whitening solution onto your teeth.

When your teeth are covered, he will activate that solution with a special dental light, which will make the chemicals in the solution soak deep into your tooth enamel and kill the stains that discolor your smile. Your dentist will repaint the solution onto your teeth and will activate the solution a total of three times to give you the smile you desire. This should make your appointment a little less than an hour in length.
