Teeth whitening that works: The power of professional, personalized care in Chevy Chase, MD

At Hosaka Dental in Chevy Chase, MD, we appreciate that products marketed to lift stains and whiten teeth are hugely popular. After all, a smile full of bright, stain-free teeth is associated with a healthy, young, vibrant, and overall attractive appearance. Yet, as you may have experienced firsthand, many products and treatments that claim to whiten and brighten teeth fail to live up to their promises. 

Professional teeth whitening services offered by dentists like Drs Erick Hosaka and Valerie Cassis are safe, really work, and are personalized to each patient. So, you can trust that your teeth will be noticeably whitened, without the risks of damage or sensitivity, and the results will look natural to enhance your appearance.

Custom options for every smile 

There is no patient quite like you. We account for each patient’s unique differences and goals by offering both in-office whitening and home whitening. 

  • Office whitening – A powerful, light-activated, and peroxide-based whitening gel is applied evenly to your teeth by one of our dentists. When the gel comes in contact with light from a specialized device, the whitening process is accelerated. You can get several shades of whiter teeth in a single, 90-minute visit to our office. Your safety and comfort are assured because the teeth are isolated from the rest of your mouth. We protect surrounding tissues from the bleaching agent. 
  • Home whitening – Some patients get gradually whiter teeth from the comfort and ease of home. If this option is preferred, we take impressions of your teeth. Whitening trays (dental appliances) are fabricated from these impressions. So, they are made to your unique specifications. We will show you how to fill the trays with prescription-strength whitening gel. Your dentist will also instruct on how often to wear the tray each day. When worn as directed, the trays deliver potent gel evenly and comfortably to the teeth to whiten teeth over around four to six weeks.
