Opalescence™ Boost™ teeth whitening

Whether you just had your braces taken off or never needed them, teeth whitening treatment is perfect for you if you want a brighter smile! TBraces Orthodontics offers Opalescence Boost professional teeth whitening near you in Arlington and Herndon, Virginia.


What is Opalescence teeth whitening?

Over time, natural staining and discoloration can occur regardless of your dental hygiene practices. No need to worry – our team is here to help restore your smile! At our Northern Virginia orthodontist offices, we offer Opalescence Boost, a teeth-whitening gel that swiftly, safely, and effectively enhances the brightness of your smile. Unlike uncomfortable LED teeth whitening lights, Opalescence Boost is chemically activated, eliminating the need for heat or discomfort. As soon as the gel is applied to your teeth, Opalescence Boost begins working. With just two or three consecutive 20-minute treatments, you can achieve a noticeably brighter smile in about an hour.

How to whiten teeth

There are many other common methods people choose to go about whitening teeth. These options are not the most effective or safe teeth whitening methods, but may include:

  • DIY teeth whitening
  • Natural teeth whitening methods
  • Teeth whitening kits
  • Teeth whitening strips

However, the best teeth whitening method is to go with a dental professional who knows what they are doing. The team at TBraces Orthodontics is highly trained and can provide you with a much safer and more effective tooth whitening treatment than you could give yourself at home.

What to expect from professional teeth whitening

Before seeking whitening treatment from our office, we recommend scheduling a regular checkup with your primary dentist. They can assess your teeth and gum health, determine the suitability of whitening treatment for you and address any concerns you may have. A routine dental checkup will also involve the removal of plaque and surface stains, resulting in a smoother tooth surface that enhances the effectiveness of the whitening treatment. Once you have seen your dentist, you can easily book an appointment at TBraces Orthodontics. During your visit, we will gather important medical history, including details about existing health conditions or tooth implants, to ensure a tailored treatment plan.

Step-by-step treatment process

  1. 1

    Your orthodontist will assess your initial tooth shade and a lip and cheek retractor will be placed to ensure your tongue and lips stay clear of the whitening gel and a protective barrier will be carefully applied around your gumline to safeguard against any irritation from the gel.

  2. 2

    With your gums, lips, and tongue protected, we will use a soft brushed tip to apply the gel onto your teeth. The gel will remain in place for 20 minutes before being suctioned off.

  3. 3

    After suctioning off the gel, we will evaluate the change in shade and determine if an additional application is necessary. Up to three applications can be performed within a single treatment session.

  4. 4

    Following the final application, the protective barrier and retractor will be swiftly removed, revealing a noticeably brighter smile!

How much does teeth whitening cost?

The average cost of professional teeth whitening is approximately $600. However, at TBraces Orthodontics, we proudly provide this treatment to NoVA patients at a reduced rate of just $500! This price encompasses the complete treatment process as well as the aftercare supplies. While dental insurance generally does not cover this procedure, we offer flexible payment options to ensure the treatment remains affordable. TBraces believes everyone should be able to achieve a beautiful and healthy smile.
