"Have been a patient for a short time, but have had wonderful care. The office has a very friendly front desk staff along with the Drs and hygienists I have seen. Highly recommend."- F.G. / Google / Feb 20, 2020
"I'm really happy with this dentists office. The front desk staff were friendly and I appreciated their warmth via telephone and in-person. The dental hygienist, Rebecca, was so sweet and very accommodating of my personal requests with my treatment and never once made me feel unwelcome or uncomfortable. I am satisfied with the cleaning and review of my oral health and I found Dr Alhabashi's bedside manner lovely - he was very thorough in his explanations and kind in his approach. It was refreshing not feeling rushed through discussions and not having procedures or products pushed on me! I will be happy to go back in 6 months and anticipate a similar pleasant experience!"- H.D. / Yelp / Feb 15, 2020

In-office teeth whitening may be a great choice for adults and teens looking to erase teeth stains and discoloration to reveal a brighter, whiter smile. To determine if teeth whitening is ideal for your goals, Dr. Adi or a member of the Atlas Walk team will examine your mouth to ensure that your teeth are healthy enough for a whitening treatment and to learn more about your preferences. Laser whitening is a fast, simple way to dramatically improve the look of your smile, but it may not be recommended if you have fillings, crowns, veneers, or bridges that appear in the smile zone. In some cases, laser teeth whitening may be part of a smile makeover plan and will be performed before placing any restorations so that they can be matched to the shade of your teeth following a whitening treatment. In-office whitening will be customized to meet your specific needs to achieve an attractive, even result for your smile.
What to Expect
Laser teeth whitening is performed from the comfort of our modern Gainesville, VA office and does not require anesthesia. However, mild sedation may be available if you experience anxiety or have a strong gag reflex. Before beginning your whitening procedure, we will clean and dry your teeth to allow for an even distribution of the whitening gel. A protective barrier will be placed over your gums and special glasses will be worn to protect your eyes. Our clinical team will place professional-grade whitening gel on your teeth and position our special whitening laser light in front of your mouth. The light activates the gel on your teeth to breakdown and dissipate teeth stains. This process will be repeated in increments of 15 minutes for 2 – 3 times, depending on the degree of your discoloration and your desired outcome. When your whitening treatment is complete, we will remove the gel and protective gum barrier and rinse your mouth thoroughly.
When your in-office whitening procedure is complete, you should be able to resume your normal daily activities. We do recommend avoiding anything dark in color that could stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, soda, or tobacco products, for at least 48 hours following your procedure. Your teeth may be sensitive to hot and cold for a few days, but our team will give you tips to minimize any discomfort. To help maintain your whitening results, it is a good idea to brush your teeth as soon as you can following tobacco use and the consumption of foods and beverages that stain the teeth. At your bi-annual cleanings with our team at Atlas Walk Dental & Orthodontics, our team will polish off any surface stains that have accumulated. Keeping up with your daily hygiene routine at home can help to minimize staining in between cleanings. If you wish to touch up your teeth with a home whitening kit, let Dr. Adi or a member of the Atlas Walk team know so that we can discuss further whitening options to keep your smile bright.
Laser teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure and is typically not covered by dental insurance. During your consultation, we will review your treatment cost and let you know of our convenient payment options. We can also give you information on low-interest financing to help teeth whitening fit comfortably within your budget.
