For decades, there have been many methods created for achieving a brighter smile, from the classic baking soda solution to more modern whitening toothpaste. However, nothing works better than a professional teeth whitening treatment from the dentist. Just ask our very own Dr. Novak, who has been practicing novel dental methods for 20+ years, with record-breaking success.
Teeth whitening has become a popular treatment for eradicating discoloration and stains from the outer layer of your teeth; this results in a sparkling, beautiful set of pearly whites.
There are several types of professional teeth whitening treatments available today, but at Richmond Dental, we strive to offer only the latest and most advanced in teeth whitening solutions for a safer, quicker, and more effective treatment. We provide in-office treatments in addition to take home whitening kits.
Before starting your treatment, we will take an impression of your teeth so that we can create a set of custom trays for you. These trays (also referred to as stents) are used to hold the bleaching solution we use on your teeth.
Once we finish creating your custom whitening trays, we will begin the whitening treatment. By the end of your treatment, you can expect a brand new smile that is up to 4 shades lighter than before. However, keep in mind that your results may differ depending on your case.
Advances in teeth whitening solutions have allowed us to improve the look of aging or stained teeth. However, for more severely stained teeth, we may recommend cosmetic crowns or porcelain veneers for optimal brightness. Book an appointment with Dr. Novak at Richmond Dental in Richmond, VT today to discuss the best cosmetic option for you.
