ANNANDALE DENTIST

Our general dentistry in Annandale VA provides professional yet affordable dental care for people of all ages and offer routine dental checkups. It is important to see an Annandale Dentist regularly so they can monitor the overall health of your teeth and gums. While there are plenty of dentists that have specialized practices, there is still a need for the dentist that practices general dentistry. Fortunately, CDA Virginia is here to help anyone looking to achieve a healthier smile.

Maintaining optimal oral health is more than just brushing your teeth every night. It is important to regularly visit a dentist for dental checkups. Getting routine dental checkups prevents your teeth from developing problems such as cavities and plaque build-up. Not only will our professional dental hygienists provide teeth cleanings but they will also exam your teeth and gums for any serious diseases. Regular dentist visits allow you to find issues early on and get treatment right away before it becomes more severe. Our team at CDA Virginia wants to help all of our patients maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Regular Dental Checkups

  • Your dental checkups will consist of an examination of your teeth and gums. Our dental hygienists will perform a teeth cleaning by gently removing plaque and polishing your teeth. We will also give you useful information on how to maintain optimal oral health.
  • Using digital X-rays our team will look at any issues that can’t be seen without the digital images.
  • Our Annandale Dentist will examine your teeth and gums for disease and other oral issues that can become severe if left untreated. He will be checking for issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, oral cancer, and malocclusions.

TEETH WHITENING

Our teeth naturally darken over time. When we eat certain foods, consume beverages like coffee, tea, and soda or use tobacco, our teeth can get stained. Discoloration can also be the result of childhood medications or illnesses. To restore your naturally looking teeth color and brighten your smile, we provide bleaching and tooth whitening.

Intrinsic tooth color is a result of large natural pigment and stain molecules trapped within the microstructure of teeth. The larger these molecules are, the more chromophores they contain, and the darker the teeth appear.

All peroxide gels work by forming hydrogen peroxide as their end product. Hydrogen peroxide breaks down to water, oxygen, and numerous radicals and byproducts known as “bleaching factors” that lighten teeth.

Optimum whitening results are achieved only when these whitening gels are: fully potent; chemically influenced to produce a high percentage of free radicals (instead of simply oxygen and water); and are allowed extended time for these factors to diffuse thoroughly into the microstructure of teeth.

We use only the most effective whitening products science has to offer.
