Affordable

Teeth whitening is one of the least expensive treatments in dentistry, making it accessible for patients on any budget. If you don't want to pay for the entire treatment upfront, we are happy to accept flexible financing through CareCredit®, LendingClub®, and more.

Safe

Teeth whitening is a non-invasive procedure that carries virtually no risk of serious side effects. Even patients with tooth and gum sensitivity can undergo teeth whitening without damaging their enamel or experiencing any pain.

Some people spend hundreds of dollars on store-bought whitening treatments that simply do not work. Make the most of your time and money by investing in a professional treatment that is proven to deliver noticeable and long-lasting results.

How Does Professional Whitening Work?

Illustration of teeth whitening process. A barrier protects the gums and a powerful LED Lamp activates the whitening gel.
During a professional whitening treatment, your dentist applies a special gel to the front surface of the teeth. An LED light activates the bleaching agent in the gel which penetrates the enamel and targets deep surface stains. The Smile Perfected system takes about 20 minutes to break down discoloration and whiten your teeth by several shades.

The Smile Perfected System

Smiles for Life Dental Care offers the easy and effective Smile Perfected whitening system to patients around Harrisonburg, VA. Treatment consists of two parts: in-office and take-home whitening.

In-Office Whitening

You begin your treatment with a powerful in-office bleaching procedure. Your dentist will clean your teeth and apply protective vitamin E oil to the lips and gums to prevent sensitivity. Next, we place dental trays pre-filled with whitening gel on the upper and lower arches, and then position your teeth under a special LED lamp. The light triggers the active ingredients in the whitening agent, causing stains to break down and dissolve. In about 20 minutes, your dentist removes the trays and washes off the residual gel to complete the procedure. Depending on your goals, we can repeat the in-office whitening treatment several times until your teeth reach an optimal shade of white.

Take-Home Whitening

Once you are satisfied with the results, you can maintain your tooth color with the Smile Perfected take-home pen. The pen contains a whitening gel that is easy to apply even in hard-to-reach parts of your teeth. Simply twist the bottom of the pen to release the gel into the applicator tip and brush evenly over the surface enamel. Next, place the protective trays over your upper and lower dental arch to hold the gel in position. In about 20 minutes, you can remove the trays and rinse off your teeth. While the take-home whitening gel has a lower concentration of bleaching gel than the in-office alternative, make sure to use the pen as directed to avoid causing dental sensitivity.

Looking for More Dramatic Enhancement? Consider a Smile Makeover

Many of our Harrisonburg patients choose to combine teeth whitening with additional forms of dentistry in a comprehensive smile makeover. Our dental offices in Staunton and Bridgewater offer a wide selection of cosmetic procedures to achieve your unique goals. After you meet with one of our dentists for a personalized consultation, we will design a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

These customized procedures often use whitening to further enhance the results of porcelain veneers, orthodontics, gum contouring, and more. Ask about a smile makeover during your next visit and find out what we can do for you.
