What methods of teeth whitening are available for Charlottesville area patients?
A whiter, brighter smile is the ultimate in health and wellness. It boosts self-confidence and heightens attractiveness. It makes a favorable first impressions, advances careers, and personal relationships. Patients are more likely to share beautiful smiles with others, and to laugh, smile, and talk unabashedly. Patients in and around the Charlottesville area often turn to Richmond Family Dentistry to learn more about smile-enhancing teeth whitening methods.
Dr. Olivia Hart’s patients learn about two common methods to improve the appearance of their teeth: take-home whitening kits and in-office power bleaching. Both methods are extremely effective at helping patients achieve a “Hollywood smile” quickly and affordably with better results than over-the-counter alternatives.
In-office power bleaching is done during one appointment and it can provide same-day results. Patients rest in the dental chair while Dr. Hart applies the whitening gel onto the teeth and uses a special light to activate whiteners. This takes approximately one to two hours.
Patients who choose take-home whitening kits will have impressions created of their teeth, which are used to make custom trays. These trays are used in conjunction with whitening gel and worn for a specific period each day for gradual whitening. Many patients achieve full results within a few weeks. This method is often less expensive than in-office power bleaching and gives patients more control over their results.
