Some of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer near Falls Church, VA you may already be familiar with, especially those at the top of the list, which are fairly self-explanatory. The ones at the bottom of the list though, bear further discussion because not everyone has heard about those.

Teeth Whitening

Let’s start with those teeth whitening options. Our Zoom! In office treatment is one of the most widely used of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer near Falls Church, VA, and with good reason. It’s fast, effective and super convenient. In just a single office visit, we can whiten your smile by up to eight shades.

That’s impressive, but to give you a sense of just how impressive, let’s compare it to over the counter whitening products you have access to. If you use them, you can get similar results, but to do so, you would have to use those over the counter products every day for up to two months.

Who wants to go through all that trouble when there’s a vastly more convenient option readily available. It’s no wonder that so many people gravitate to Zoom!

Our Whitening For Life program is almost as popular as our in-office treatment, and do it yourselfers seem to gravitate to it more than any other group. It’s not hard to see why since this program puts all the power and control in the hands of our patients.

When you initially sign up for the program, we’ll ask you to come into our office so that we can make an impression of your teeth. We’ll need that in order to construct a set of custom-fitting bleaching trays for you. That process takes about a week, and as soon as we get your trays back from our manufacturer, we’ll ask you to come back into the office so we can give them to you, along with a tube of our powerful bleaching gel and an instruction booklet that tells you exactly how to use it.

The bleaching gel we use is much more powerful than anything you can buy over the counter, which gives you better and faster results. Even better, once you have those tools in hand, you’re free to whiten your teeth any time you like, right from the comfort of home, with no appointments to make or schedules to remember. It’s your smile, whiten it your way!

Best of all though, is the fact that as long as you keep current with your preventive care visits, we’ll give you a new tube of bleaching gel for free, every six months, for life or for as long as you choose to remain in the program. That puts unlimited whitening potential at your fingertips.

Finally, there’s the Kor Whitening System. This is a little-known program, but it’s the most powerful whitening option we have available. It works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen, and unlike the other two programs we’ve mentioned so far, its effects are entirely permanent. If you have deep, persistent stains on your teeth that just aren’t responding to other types of treatment, this is the ultimate solution.

Adult Braces Alternatives

If you’re like most people, you’re not a fan of conventional braces. We can’t say we blame you either. They’re uncomfortable and highly visible. Even worse, they take a really long time to straighten your teeth. In fact, sometimes it can take up to two years for conventional braces to straighten your teeth.

It’s no wonder then that our two adult braces alternatives are among the most popular cosmetic dentistry services we offer near Falls Church, VA for people who need braces.

Let’s start by talking about the Six Month Smiles program. As the name indicates, the braces used here can do the work of straightening your teeth in as little as six months. The reason they’re so much faster than conventional braces is that conventional braces seek to straighten all your teeth, while the braces used in the Six Month Smiles program focus only on your relatively fast moving front facing teeth; that is, the ones people actually see when you smile.

Even better is the fact that these braces closely mirror the natural color of your teeth, so not only do they work much more quickly, but they’re also less visible, which means you’ll be less self-conscious while you’re wearing them.

Then there’s Invisalign. These aren’t braces at all, but rather, a series of custom-fitting caps designed to be worn over your teeth. When worn in sequence, they work to progressively move your teeth into alignment, just like braces do, but they have some powerful advantages that braces can’t touch.

When you first sign up for the program, we’ll ask you to come into our office so we can take a series of detailed 3D scans of your teeth. We’ll use these to create the caps for you in a process that takes about a week. Once we get them back, we’ll ask you back in for your initial fitting. Then, about every two weeks, we’ll ask you to come in so we can check your progress and when you’re ready for the next set of caps in the sequence, we’ll give them to you.

As to the advantages we hinted at earlier, the first is that Invisalign caps are virtually invisible. People might not notice you’re wearing anything unless they take a second, or sometimes a third look. As great as that is though, there’s another, even more compelling advantage to consider.

You can take Invisalign caps out and put them back in yourself, something that no braces on the planet will allow.

Think about the freedom and flexibility that gives you for just a moment. If you have an important dinner or function to attend and you’d rather not be saddled by your caps, just take them out before you leave and put them back in when you get home later that evening.

Just like we mentioned with the Whitening For Life program, that puts the power and control firmly in your hands. You can get the straighter teeth you’ve always wanted, but on your terms, and according to your schedule. Nothing beats Invisalign in terms of sheer convenience.

Other Advantages

While having a broad range of services on offer is important, that by itself isn’t enough to have turned us into the region’s top-rated dental practice.

In addition to that, we have state of the art treatment rooms, sedation dentistry on offer for any patient who needs a little something extra to help get them through the procedures they need, and plenty of creature comforts to make your time with us more pleasant, including TVs in all our treatment rooms, headphones, and even warm fuzzy blankets!

One thing we do better than just about anyone though is the fact that we accept lots of different dental insurance plans, which means we probably take yours. As of now, we accept the following:

  • Aetna
  • Anthem
  • Assurant
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield
  • Carefirst
  • Cigna
  • Delta Dental
  • GEHA
  • Guardian
  • Lincoln Financial Group
  • Metlife
  • Principal
  • Sun Life
  • And United Concordia

If you don’t see your insurance carrier on the list, not to worry, we’ve got lots of other great options, and we’d be happy to discuss them with you. When you’re ready to start building the smile you’ve always wanted, just give our office a call.
