Just about every drug, grocery, and discount store has an aisle full of products that promise to whiten teeth. You'll find gum, mouth rinse, toothpaste, gels, swabs, and strips each claiming to do the job better than the others. It can feel overwhelming with so many choices. In truth though, no two mouths or lifestyles are the same, and your personal physiology has a lot to do with the success of a teeth whitening program. You need products that work safely for your body. You need professional advice and oversight. You need options. Dr. Charles Martin and his aesthetic team deliver, with customized teeth whitening programs for patients in and around Richmond.
Shedding light on fast whitening
In office teeth whitening is a popular choice, especially for the patient who needs a "wow" smile, right now. It takes a bit over an hour for the technician to protect your soft tissues and apply a prescription strength whitening agent. You relax while it goes to work, and your progress is monitored throughout treatment. You walk out the door ready for a job interview, class reunion, vacation, big date, or dazzling selfie.
We offer methods that use light activation (Zoom!) or chemical activation (Opalescence Boost) for dramatic results.
Waking up whiter
Maybe you are the patient who prefers to whiten gradually, with full control of ultimate results. Or maybe you are prone to sensitivity from whitening. With NiteWhite you fill custom-fit trays with whitening gel, fortified with a desensitizing ingredient, and wear them overnight until you reach the desired level of brightness. This method takes longer than in office treatments. The trays make it easy to keep your smile sparkling with occasional touch-ups.
A one-two punch to knock out stains
The KöR deep bleaching system is truly the best of both worlds. It is a combination approach with in office and at home treatments. Even deep-set stains like those from tetracycline or tobacco are no match for KöR's powerful chemicals, yet there is very little risk of sensitivity.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to give your smile and your confidence a well deserved boost. Talk with the dental team who knows that one size does not fit all patients. Call Richmond Smile Center at 804-417-7203 for teeth whitening options.
