Your smile says a lot about you. In fact, it’s the most unique feature you have. Smiling is very important. It can help boost our moods, improve our self-image, and increase our confidence. Smile is vital in both the personal and professional world, affecting how we are perceived by others. A beautiful set of pearly whites can give us confidence, but unfortunately, many people are left with embarrassment over the color of their teeth. Luckily, there is a fast, effective, and affordable solution. If you are unhappy with the brightness and color of your teeth, teeth whitening is the answer.
Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental treatments because of its dramatic results in little time. With the help of your Charlottesville, VA area team, a vibrant smile is within reach.
Dulling and discoloration of teeth is a natural occurrence. So many things we consume can stain the teeth such as carbonated drinks, wine, coffee, and acidic fruits. In addition, habits such as smoking or tobacco use can lead to staining of the teeth. While we’re not saying you have to give up your morning cup of coffee, we do recommend professional teeth whitening to remove years of stain accumulation.
There are numerous ways for whitening teeth available to patients. While many people begin by trying an over-the-counter method, most are unsatisfied with the results and end up in our office for a professional solution. At Glen Allen Family Dental, we offer both in-office and at-home whitening procedures.
One of the best ways to achieve amazing results in the convenience of your home is with our professional at-home whitening. To begin treatment, impressions of the teeth are taken and used to create custom whitening trays. You will be sent home with instructions for applying the gel and how long to keep the trays on each day. While some patients notice results right away, most see a gradual improvement in whitening over the course of two weeks. The best part is that the trays can be saved and used for periodic whitening as needed, which is perfect for those important events that just seem to pop up unexpectedly.
