Teeth Whitening

Patients depend on having a white, healthy smile. However, not everyone has naturally white teeth. Due to genetics and stains that develop over time, patients may struggle with discolored teeth. One way to address this concern is with teeth whitening procedures and treatments. Dr. Olivia Hart of Richmond offers a number of teeth whitening methods. The most commonly used treatment is at-home gel solutions. This is effective in removing superficial stains on the teeth and enhancing patient smiles quickly and easily with FDA-approved products.

At-Home Gel Solutions

Dr. Hart offers an at-home whitening method that is safe and effective for patients to utilize. At the dental office, Dr. Hart will fabricate a tray that fits precisely over the arches of the patient's teeth. Then, the patient is given whitening gel that is used with the trays and worn at home. Depending on the severity of the stain and the dentist's recommendations, patients may be advised to wear the trays anywhere from a half hour a day to overnight for the best results. Many patients report a marked improvement in the color of their enamel after several applications of the gel.

The at-home whitening method is safe, effective, and affordable for most patients.


With three treatment choices, virtually anyone can have a Nu Radiance smile:
  • Forté is a fast-acting whitener with an extra advantage. The calcium-rich formulation helps to remineralize enamel, increasing strength and hardness. Treatment also reduces white spots (such as from wearing braces) and reduces sensitivity. Each application takes only 30 minutes, with noticeable results in about a week.
  • The Duet gentle compound is designed for patients prone to sensitivity. The formulation has a pleasant mint flavor and delivers a powerful yet comfortable whitening experience in just half an hour per session, with results in five to eight days.
  • Classic – The original Nu Radiance system is effective on even tough dental discoloration such as tetracycline staining. Dr. Hart determines your appropriate treatment schedule (up to eight hours per day) for outstanding whitening.

With a whiter, brighter smile, patients feel more confident and beautiful than ever before.
