If your teeth are affected by stains or discoloration, teeth whitening treatment with our team can brighten your smile by several shades. While there are many over-the-counter bleaching options available, dentist-approved whitening treatments use higher concentrations of peroxide to address deep stains for more impressive results. At our Williamsburg, VA, practice, Drs. James A. Burden and Marc Barrett offer at-home whitening kits with customized trays for only $199.
Whitening treatments are very low risk procedures and are suitable for a wide variety of patients. However, because the procedure often leaves teeth feeling hypersensitive, it is typically not recommended to patients with marked tooth sensitivity or worn enamel.
Our whitening special includes customized trays and the at-home whitening kit for only $199.
Additionally, our bleaching kits are best suited to treating mild to moderate discoloration on the surface of a tooth. For severe intrinsic staining that affect the underlying layers, Drs. Burden and Barrett can recommend an alternative cosmetic treatment.
If you already have restorations on your front teeth, such as porcelain veneers, dental crowns, or dental bonding, whitening may not be right for you. Restorative materials such as porcelain and composite resin do not respond to bleaching agents. However, if you do want to brighten your smile, we can fabricate a new restoration to match the enhanced color of your teeth.
At our practice, we offer complimentary cosmetic consultations. During the appointment, Dr. Burden or Barrett will examine your smile to determine your candidacy for whitening. You can discuss your aesthetic goal, as well as any concerns you have, and learn more about the cosmetic options available to you. We can also provide a preview of your expected results using our SNAP® Instant Dental Imaging software.
If you decide to proceed with at-home whitening, we will take digital impressions of your teeth using advanced CEREC® technology and use them to design your customized whitening trays. Patients can then bring these trays home with them.
Whitening your smile can make you feel more confident about your appearance and improve your quality of life.
When you are ready to begin treatment, simply fill the trays with the bleaching agent, fit them over your teeth, and wait the predetermined amount of time each day. Depending on the extent of your discoloration, you may need to continue treatment for a few days or for several weeks. Many patients see the beginnings of their results after only a few treatments, though your final effects can take longer to appear.
A consistent oral health routine is one of the best ways to maintain the results of your treatment. During your biannual cleanings at our office, we can also enhance the effects by removing stains before they settle into your enamel. Periodic touch-up whitening treatments can also extend the lifecycle of your results.
Whitening your smile can make you feel more confident about your appearance and improve your quality of life. We offer convenient at-home whitening treatments, as well as in-office services, so all our patient can achieve their smile goals.
