"I've been seeing Dr. Ross for thirty years. He is extremely talented and professional. He takes his time to makes every procedure as comfortable and pain-free as is possible. Very friendly staff give out free M&Ms. What's not to love?"- J.S. / Yelp / Oct 01, 2017
"Not a big fan of going to the dentist, but even cleanings are a treat at City Smiles. Dr. Ross is up on all the latest tech and makes the experience pretty darn comfortable. I recently had to have a crown replaced and while this has been an ordeal at other dentists, the afternoon I spent was really great. Cozy blankets, eye protectors, a place for your stuff while you're waiting for the crown to cook, any kind of music you want, and just an overall very relaxing experience, all things considered. I've been going to Dr. Ross since I moved to DC about 4 years ago and he and his team are the best."- D.H. / Yelp / Sep 24, 2017
"Dr. Ross is a dental artist! He beautifully repaired our teenage son’s broken front tooth, eased fears, and explained the longer term plan and how the tooth will change with maturity. It is such a relief to have the excellent team at City Smiles caring for our family. I have been a happy client for more than 25 years."- J.B. / Google / Sep 18, 2017

What to Expect
Before starting any teeth whitening treatment, a thorough examination is conducted by the dentist to assess the patient’s mouth, including the condition of the enamel. Based on the exam, the appropriate method is discussed with the patient and chosen. It’s important for patients to understand that if enamel is in overall poor condition, the teeth will be too sensitive for teeth whitening to work. The dentist may recommend porcelain veneers, which achieves teeth whitening by bonding a custom-made veneer over the natural tooth. For patients whose mouths are in good condition, there are several teeth whitening options available.
While no teeth whitening option is permanent, results can last several years. The results of laser treatments last the longest at 3 – 4 years. In some cases, results can last more than 5 years. With in-home treatments, patients can expect results to last a couple of years. Whitening is extended through proper care such as regular brushing with recommended toothpastes, flossing, and appropriate mouthwashes. Regular check-ups should be part of this routine, since regular professional cleanings can remove plaque and tartar. In addition, patients should limit foods and drinks like berries, tea, coffee, and soda that stain teeth.
Several factors determine the cost of teeth whitening such as the whitening method used, number of treatments needed, and the patient’s desired whiteness of the teeth. The dentist can provide further details on all costs involved during the consultation.
