What Is Teeth Whitening?

In a world where your appearance matters, the state of your smile can be a major cosmetic concern. Fortunately, Contemporary Dentistry is able to help you address this dilemma with professional-strength teeth whitening. While there are tons of grocery store whitening choices, the product we use has shown to be superior to most over-the-counter remedies currently offered. Our whitening treatments, highly recommended by our leading dentists, can whiten your teeth by quite a few shades, helping you keep your amazing results for much longer than alternative products. We use professional-strength solutions that actually work, reaching below the surface of the teeth to treat deep stains, rather than consumer-level options that just scrape the surface (quite literally) and provide a brighter hue of yellow at the very best.

What Are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

At Contemporary Dentistry, teeth whitening offers a variety of privileges for Fairfax, VA individuals who desire to attain a lighter, happier smile. A few of the benefits of whitening include:

  • Boosts appearance by clearing stains and discoloration caused by aging, drinks, and food
  • Amplifies self-assurance
  • Gives you a fresh and more gorgeous smile
  • May make you look more approachable and friendly
  • Creates a more self-confident initial impression in professional and social settings
  • May be personalized to achieve the level of whitening you desire
  • Usually delivers noticeable results following just a single session

What to Expect During Teeth Whitening

What you should expect for teeth whitening appointments depends on the process recommended by our dental professionals. Since our practice provides several treatments for effective and high-quality teeth whitening, the procedure selected for you will be determined after an appointment where your aesthetic goals and lifestyle will be discussed and taken into consideration. In the majority of situations, your professional teeth whitening treatments will be completed in less than an hour through the use of a prescription-strength whitening gel, combined with the help of a light system that immediately whitens teeth several shades. Our at-home systems are equally efficient but may provide a more subtle result over a period of months.

Am I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Almost anyone can benefit from professional teeth whitening to restore a brighter, more beautiful smile. Patients with surface stains, dull teeth, yellowing of the teeth, and even deeper-set stains from smoking, certain medications, and underlying conditions may be considered suitable candidates for teeth whitening. In general, patients considering teeth whitening should have good overall dental and oral health with no active infections or other oral conditions. It's also important to note that dental restorations - like crowns or bridges - cannot be whitened using professional teeth whitening, which works best on natural teeth.

UPDATE: January 2024. My 6th year with Dr. Morales. Had another cleaning. As usual, great experience. I don't have insurance, so I am happy they still honor Aetna's discount membership for real savings. Started to learn Spanish and I can practice it in real life...and for free! Hasta la proxima vez ! UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer. This is my second review for this excellent office. After neglecting my teeth for quite some time a broken toothed forced me to visit a dentist. After a research on the web and subsequent phone calls I settled for the Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas. One of the reason was that not having insurance the office accepts Aetna Savings Plans, basically a discount for the services. The discounts are real as I found out calling some other offices. My first visit was in January 2018. I have had numerous procedures done since then (altogether 30 - thirty - visits) ranging from deep cleaning, numerous cavities and including one implant and two crowns. All work was done in the office, the quality of work has been 100%+, I have never experienced nay 'post-procedure' pains or complications. The staff is very friendly and I am very happy I picked Contemporary dentistry for my dental needs. UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Morales and his practice for 18 years. The time period, alone, should be an indication of my family’s satisfaction.  Dr. Morales is wonderful...he invariably demonstrates serving his patients’ best interests and well-being in recommending and carrying out treatment. We have never had lingering issues in any treatment given.  We have successfully recommended him and his practice and will continue to do so. We never have a problem with scheduling appointments and the office staff is always welcoming and pleasant. The office, itself, is modern and comfortable.  If I could give 10 Stars, I would! P.S. Love our hygienist, Amy.

I’ve had a very positive experience with Contemporary Dentistry of Fairfax starting with my initial phone call to make my appointment, to the welcoming and professional office staff, and the talent and skill of the dentists. I currently see Dr Noumy but I trust that I would get the same care from the other dentists as well.

I travel from Florida for Dentist Diego Morales.  He is super careful and I don’t have any pain.  Excellent work in my mouth.  Dentist Diego Morales treats you like part of his family.  No waiting times when you have an appointment.  The receptionist and the staff very attentive.  I recommended 100%.

I have been a patient of Contemporary Dentistry (Dr. Morales) for many years and my experience with his practice has been very positive (especially considering I do not enjoy dental work). He has always made me aware of options for treatment. Over the years, he has always reassured me during instances where I may need a filling, root canal, crown and most recently a dental implant. The staff at Contemporary Dentistry, including hygienist Amy and office personnel are very professional and considerate. Dr. Abril did the implant procedure and his expertise and followup care was especially appreciated. My experience with this practice is such that I have not explored other options for my dental care and consistently see them for my regular checkups. If there are any concerns between regular visits, all I have to do is phone the office and an appointment is available very quickly. I am very happy with the service I have receive from Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas and recommend them without reservation.

About Us
Will teeth whitening make my teeth more sensitive?

It is normal to experience some increased sensitivity following teeth whitening treatments, but this should resolve on its own within a few days or weeks. During this time, patients may benefit by avoiding hot, cold, or sugary foods and drinks. Patients who already have noticeable tooth sensitivity may not be considered good candidates for teeth whitening, as the sensitivity can be exacerbated by treatment in some cases.

How many shades whiter can my teeth get with a whitening treatment?

Teeth whitening results will vary from person to person based on the nature, age, and severity of the tooth discoloration and other factors. In many cases, it is possible to achieve results up to eight shades whiter with professional teeth whitening!

Can my veneers be whitened?

Porcelain veneers and other dental restorations typically do not respond to teeth whitening treatments the way that natural teeth do. Fortunately, these restorations are remarkably stain-resistant, but it is still important to avoid staining foods and beverages to keep your veneers, crowns, and other restorations looking their best.
