As you get older, years of consuming certain foods and beverages can cause discoloration on the tooth enamel. If stained teeth are causing you to smile less often, you may be a good candidate for teeth whitening in Virginia Beach. Professional teeth bleaching treatments are administered by a dentist, who ensures lasting, consistent results.
Why Should I Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?
Visiting an experienced teeth bleaching dentist is the best way to whiten your teeth quickly and safely. Dentists use a highly concentrated bleaching gel, which produces results that are visible that same day. Plus, the procedure is carefully monitored, eliminating the risk of gum irritation or other complications. If you’ve experienced discoloration due to food or beverage use, give us a call to learn more about our teeth whitening services.
Professional Results with Teeth Whitening at Home
Achieving a gleaming smile in the comfort of your home is possible with an at-home teeth whitening treatment. One of our dentists will create a customized teeth whitening kit using impressions of your teeth and a professional-grade bleaching gel. When you wear the trays for one hour per day for two weeks, your teeth may become up to six shades brighter.
How Much Will it Cost to Visit a Teeth Bleaching Dentist?
The teeth bleaching cost typically depends on multiple factors, including the condition of your teeth, the type of teeth whitening treatment selected, and the number of follow-ups needed. At your consultation, we’ll provide an accurate estimate of the anticipated charges.
In-Office Teeth Whitening vs. Drugstore Products
If your goal is to achieve a brighter smile, you’ve probably noticed the array of teeth whitening products available at many drugstores. While these products can produce slight results, their formulas are not as powerful as those administered by a dentist. Plus, using drugstore products improperly can damage the gum line. Avoid the risk of gum irritation and receive even, lasting results by visiting an experienced teeth whitening dentist.
What Happens During the Teeth Whitening Procedure?
While the teeth bleaching procedure steps vary depending on the type of treatment chosen, some steps take place during most appointments. Here’s what to expect when seeing a dentist for teeth whitening:
- The dentist will begin by cleaning and examining the teeth, ensuring they are ready for the bleaching treatment. A few photos may be taken of your teeth, which help monitor the teeth whitening progress.
- To allow easy access to the visible teeth, a cheek retractor will be placed inside the mouth. Then, a thin layer of protective coating is applied to the gums.
- The bleaching gel is then applied to the teeth. Several layers may be required to achieve the desired results, and a light may be used to enhance the gel’s ingredients.
- Once the teeth whitening treatment is finished, the dentist will evaluate your teeth to decide whether the desired color was reached.
