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 Burlington dentist 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.
Many teeth whitening measures that you can do at home are not overly effective. Teeth whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes take weeks or months to work effectively. Whitening strips can be placed on the teeth inconsistently and cause the whitening to also be inconsistent. Store bought dental trays are not custom made for your mouth and can cause the whitening formula to irritate the gums.
At Richmond Dental, we only use the latest and most advanced whitening treatments in Burlington, VT. To start, an impression is made of your mouth to allow us to create custom trays that will hold the bleaching solution. Once the trays are created, we start the whitening process. At the end of the first treatment, you can expect teeth that are up to 4 shades whiter than they were at before the treatment.
Along with in-office treatments, we can prepare take home whitening kits using the custom trays created from your impression. The advances in teeth whitening allow us to improve the look of stained, discolored or aged teeth. For severely stained teeth, the dentist may additionally recommend cosmetic crowns or porcelain veneers which could work to improve the smile in a more permanent way.
In addition to practicing proper oral hygiene, teeth whitening is a smart way to improve the smile. Our team is dedicated to helping you achieve the smile of your dreams! Book an appointment for a teeth whitening treatment from our Burlington, VT office today.
