Whiten Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers near Chantilly, VA

Are you considering getting porcelain veneers near Chantilly, VA? They’re a good, cost-effective option if you have chipped or misshapen teeth, or if you have a tooth that’s deeply stained and the stain proves to be unresponsive to various whitening technologies available.

It’s one of the many services our dental practice offers, but it’s certainly not the only option. If you’ve got your heart set on porcelain veneers near Chantilly, VA, we’re happy to install them for you, but if you’d like to explore some of the other alternatives, we’d also be thrilled to sit down with you and map out your other options. If you’re dealing with stained teeth, you may want to consider one of our three teeth whitening options as a first course of treatment. Below, we’ll give you more information about them:

Zoom! In-Office Whitening

This is our most commonly used whitening technology. It’s popular because it’s fast and convenient, and it delivers impressive results quickly. In fact, in just a single office visit, this treatment can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades, which is beyond impressive!

To give you a sense of scale, you can see similar whitening results using over the counter bleaching products, but you’d have to use those products every day for up to eight weeks. That’s a very long time, especially considering that there’s a much faster and more convenient option available.

Note, however, that this treatment may not be sufficient to solve for especially deep stains and may not be the right choice if you’re weighing it against porcelain veneers near Chantilly, VA.

The Whitening For Life Program

Over time, this program can generate even more impressive results than our in-office treatment. When you enroll in the program, the first thing we’ll do is ask you to stop by the office so we can take an impression of your teeth.

We’ll use that impression to create a set of custom bleaching trays for you that matches the contours of your teeth precisely. That process takes about a week, and once we have the trays back from our manufacturer, we’ll ask you to come back in so we can give them to you, along with a tube of our powerful bleaching gel and an instruction booklet that details its use.

From there, you have all the power and control. You can whiten your teeth any time you like, from the comfort of home. Since the bleaching gel is much more powerful than anything you can buy over the counter, in the long run, you’ll see better results than our single-treatment in-office whitening can deliver.

Even better, as long as you stay current with your six-month preventive care visits, we’ll give you another tube of the bleaching gel for free, for life, or for as long as you choose to remain in the program.

With better whitening results in the longer term, this approach may be a good option to consider against the possibility of getting porcelain veneers near Chantilly, VA, if deep, persistent staining is what’s leading you to consider veneers as an option.

The Kor Whitening System

This is our most powerful whitening option and is an excellent option to consider if you’re thinking about getting porcelain veneers near Chantilly, VA because of deep, persistent stains on your teeth since that’s exactly what this whitening treatment was designed to handle. It works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen, and unlike our other two whitening treatments, its effects are entirely permanent.

Of course, we do a lot more than install veneers and whiten teeth. Ours is a full-service practice, and we offer a broad range of both dental and cosmetic services. In addition to the things outlined above, here is a quick overview of what else we can do for you and your family:

  • Tooth-colored fillings

  • Two alternatives to conventional braces, including:
    • Invisalign
    • And the Six Month Smiles Program
  • Dentures
  • Partials
  • Implants
  • Crowns (including metal-free crowns)
  • Sedation Dentistry

  • And more!

Of the services listed above, let’s spend a moment talking about our teeth straightening options because before you address any discolorations or have any work done to correct imperfections if you’re not 100% happy with how straight your teeth are, you may want to address that issue first.

We know and understand that conventional braces aren’t anyone’s first choice where teeth straightening is concerned, which is why we offer two great alternatives on that front. Here’s a bit more about both:

The Six Month Smiles Program

While conventional braces can take up to two years to do the work of straightening your teeth, the braces used here can accomplish their work in as little as a quarter of the time. They’re able to do this by taking your slow-moving back teeth out of the equation and focusing solely on the teeth people can see when you smile.

In addition to that, these braces are colored such that they blend in seamlessly with the natural coloration of your teeth, which makes them virtually invisible for the time you’ll spend wearing them. That’s a win for you on two fronts!

The Invisalign Program

These aren’t actually braces at all, but rather, a series of form-fitting caps worn in sequence over your teeth that serve to progressively straighten them.

The great thing about Invisalign caps is the fact that it’s a trivial matter to take them out and put them back in again. In fact, it’s something you can do yourself.

Think about that for just a moment. If you have a date, a family get together, or a speaking engagement you want to attend and you don’t want to be bothered by your caps, you don’t have to be. You can simply pop them out and put them back in again when you get back home. You can’t get that kind of flexibility and control from braces of any kind, which is why the program is becoming so popular with our patients.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how many great services we offer if we don’t accept the dental insurance you’ve got. That’s why we’ve worked hard to expand the list of carriers we work with. As of right now, that list includes:

  • Aetna
  • Anthem
  • Assurant
  • Blue Cross and Blue Shield
  • Carefirst
  • Cigna’s Total DPPO plan
  • Delta Dental
  • GEHA
  • Guardian
  • Lincoln Financial Group
  • Metlife
  • Principal
  • Sun Life
  • And all United Concordia dental plans, save for those offered exclusively to active military members.

If you didn’t see your insurance company on the list above, not to worry. In addition to that, we also accept both the Citi Health Card and Care Credit, and to make things easier and more convenient for our tech-savvy patients, we even accept payments via Paypal.

If you don’t have either of the cards mentioned above, we’ve also created our own Platinum Membership Club, which offers generous discounts on most of the services we provide.

We also understand that no one likes having to miss work or use up one of their valuable vacation days in order to get the treatments they need, which is why we keep our office open late several nights a week. With a bit of planning, you won’t need to miss any work at all. As of now, our office hours are as follows:

Monday: 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM

Tuesday: 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM

Wednesday: 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Thursday: 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Friday: 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Saturday: 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Sunday: Our office is closed on Sunday

The bottom line is simply this: Whatever your needs are where your teeth are concerned, from preventive care, to general dentistry, to cosmetic services like whitening or veneers, we’ve got you covered.

We want to do much more than solve whatever issue you’re having in the here and now. We want to become your one-stop-shop for all your dental needs, for as long as you live in the area. Give us a call or stop by our office the next time you’re in the area. We can hardly wait to meet you and answer any questions you might have.
