Benefits of Professional Whitening


Our Harrisonburg-area offices use the Smile Perfected™ whitening system to break down surface stains with unprecedented speed. In-office treatment takes just 20 minutes and can whiten your teeth by multiple shades.


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.


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.

How Does Professional Whitening Work?

Diagram explaining how professional teeth whitening whitens teeth.

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.

Maintaining Your New Smile

While teeth whitening is not permanent, there are several ways you can help extend the lifespan of your results. Our dentists recommend the following:

Practice Good Dental Hygiene

The best way to maintain an attractive smile is to practice thorough and consistent dental hygiene. Brushing can prevent stains as well as oral health problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Brush your teeth twice daily with whitening toothpaste, and floss carefully at least once a day.

Avoid Darkly Colored Foods and Drinks

Avoid certain foods and drinks that are responsible for tooth stains. In general, dark-colored and highly pigmented substances are more likely to taint the enamel. If you choose to indulge in coffee, red wine, or black tea, try drinking through a straw and brushing afterward to lower the potential stain absorption.

Attend Regular Dental Check-ups

Professional teeth cleanings are important for a white smile. Schedule a routine visit with your dentist at least twice a year. Feel free to whiten your teeth at home with your take-home pen after these appointments. A thorough cleaning can make your teeth even more receptive to the effects of whitening gel.
