Teeth Whitening

in Alexandria, VA

Teeth whitening is a remarkably simple treatment. Teeth whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches, hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These bleaches break down stains, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.

Our teeth are one of our most noticeable and attractive attributes. They are crucial when it comes to eating, but they are just as important when it comes to us communicating. Your healthy smile can be an appealing asset when it comes to establishing your personal, social, and professional relationships.

The entire team at INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA shares an office goal. With over three decades of experience, we pride ourselves in being old school when it comes to respecting you and your family and giving you the treatment that we would wish to receive ourselves.

You may suffer from stained, discolored, damaged, or missing teeth and feel embarrassed by their appearance, even becoming less social to avoid any unwanted criticism. Consulting with INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA about teeth whitening could be one a life-changing moment for you in restoring the beauty to your teeth and the confidence in your smile.

Teeth Whitening is Typically Fast and Easy

What is excellent about teeth whitening is that it is a totally non-invasive treatment that can be done quickly and efficiently at INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA always delivering rewarding results.

Teeth whitening is not only completed just for cosmetic reasons. You may want to have teeth whitening to reduce the look of discoloration related to a medication. Some prescriptions will discolor teeth if it was prescribed at a young age. Another reason you may consider teeth whitening is it reduces the look of fluorosis, which is when you had too much fluoride treatment as your teeth were developing.

The Life Expectancy of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening will not be a permanent solution. You might need to undergo consistent tooth whitening sessions to sustain the look and results of your treatments. If you continue to enjoy specific activities after having your teeth whitened, you are likely to need additional whitening treatments, more often. Activities that will increase the need for further teeth whitening treatments include smoking, drinking coffee or tea, colas, and red wine. If you eat highly concentrated citrus or heavily colored foods, you may also see the need to whiten your teeth more often.


Even with the best of diligence to maintain your oral health things don’t go as planned. Once in a while, and you might find that your teeth need to be restored or replaced. Missing, cracked, damaged, or even decayed teeth will dull your smile. Did you know it can also affect your oral health? At Inspire Dental of Alexandria we offer restorative dentistry to ensure that your teeth and oral health are back to their former state.


It is important to feel confident in your smile, because being confident in your smile means being confident in yourself. Despite this, many people walk around every day, resigned to the fact that their smile is what it is and there is really nothing they can do to change it. But what if that was not the case? What if improving the aesthetic appearance and/or functionality of your smile was easier than you thought?


Almost 50 million Americans experience tooth-loss every year. Dental bridges have traditionally been the best option if you are in this situation. However, there have been continual technological advancements regarding different types of dental implants. Dental implants are becoming both a common and popular procedure to restore a missing tooth or teeth.

The Teeth Whitening Treatment

Working with INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA to whiten your teeth is the best approach. While retail teeth whitening solutions will provide improvements, having us perform your teeth whitening treatment is the quickest and most efficient way to achieve the results you want. If having teeth whitened at home is important to you, we can offer an at-home component or kit that can be purchased and then used under our supervision.

Professional teeth whitening treatments incorporate gels that are mixed in the office to help accelerate the whitening treatment and more efficiently provide the results possible if you have significant levels of discoloration. This level of treatment is not available with the retail products. The products on the market are not comparable to what we can provide concerning tooth whitening treatment and the levels of concentrations.

When working with INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA to have your teeth whitened, dental impressions will be taken first. These molds will be used to create personalized trays that will be used during your teeth whitening process. Using custom-fitted trays allows for the best possible results. The over-the-counter teeth whitening systems have generic, one-size-fits-all whitening trays, which leaves room for error and far less impressive results.

If you have a porcelain crown, it might be best to replace it if the newly whitened teeth do not match the crown. Everything and anything like this will be considered and discussed before any treatment begins. It is necessary that you have all the information we need to make informed decisions about your oral health. Do not make the mistake of thinking teeth whitening is just a cosmetic procedure; it will improve oral health just like other dental procedures.


5 star

My family has been seeing Dr. White through more than a decade of teeth cleanings, tooth injuries, teeth grinding, cavities, caps, root canal... you name it. The office is 30 minutes away but we wouldn't consider another dentist office. It's not just that Dr. White is a great professional, it's that he and his family run a great office. Scheduling, insurance, hygienists, hours -- everything about interacting with them is first rate.Everybody is knowledgeable, thorough, and kind. They take major insurance, and have even given me advice on which options to select. ...and Dr. White is a big Nats fan, which is a bonus in my book any day.

Aftercare Following Teeth Whitening

Following your teeth whitening treatment at INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA, you could experience some tooth sensitivity. We will suggest that you reduce your intake of coffee, tea, red wine, and citrus, tomatoes, and berries for several days while the teeth whitening sets in. We would like to see you reduce the consumption of these beverages and foods anyway because they also wear away the enamel, which reduces the effectiveness of the teeth whitening treatment and increases the need for other treatments as well.

The sensitivity you might experience will also depend on how the extent of treatment is needed to achieve the desired shade of whiteness. This should not happen if we have you prepare ahead of time. If the problem persists, please be sure to tell us, but using over-the-counter tooth-sensitivity toothpaste, Fluoride varnish, or a calcium-phosphate gel can also help to alleviate the discomfort.

It is imperative to maintain proper brushing and flossing, and regular dental visits every six months are essential to maintain the success of your teeth whitening treatment. If you have any questions about whether teeth whitening is beneficial for you, contact INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA for a consultation. Teeth whitening is quick and easy and provides you with an immediate boost in your self-esteem and self-esteem.
