Options for Professional Teeth Whitening

Find out the many ways in which you can achieve a whiter smile.

Whether you want to admit it or not, a smile is typically the first feature we notice about a person. If you are dealing with a stained, yellowing, or dull smile, your dentist, Dr. Michael Tisdelle, can help you feel more confident thanks to teeth whitening in Charlottesville, VA. Whether you want to turn to your dental team for a brighter smile or you want to whiten on your terms, here are the different whitening options available to you:

  • Whitening toothpaste
  • Over-the-counter whitening kits
  • Professional at-home whitening
  • Professional in-office whitening

Over-the-Counter Whitening

At this point, most people know about the different kinds of bleaching options that they can get from their local drugstore. These kits can seem like a quick, convenient and inexpensive way to get a whiter smile. While you can achieve a whiter smile with these options, it can take several weeks to see results and results are typically subtle. So while this might be ideal for someone who just wants to give a little boost to their smile’s appearance, this option won’t be ideal for someone dealing with more extensive stains and yellowing. These options can also be dangerous and easy to misuse.

Professional Whitening Systems

There are many reasons people turn to professional teeth whitening in Charlottesville, VA. Some patients simply want to get amazing results fast. Others want to get a whiter smile while avoiding the tooth sensitivity they may have experienced with over-the-counter options. Some patients simply want our professional team to do the work for them while they relax. There is no wrong reason to seek out your dental professionals for whitening.

Chairside or in-office whitening is quite popular because we can get smiles several shades whiter in just a single bleaching session. If your goal is to get visible results quickly, chairside whitening is going to provide you with exactly what you’re looking for. However, if you’d like to get professional results from the comfort of home, we can also provide professional at-home whitening with custom bleaching trays that will deliver radiant results in a fraction of the time compared to over-the-counter bleaching options.

Are you ready to turn to your Charlottesville, VA, dentist, Dr. Tisdelle, for professional teeth whitening? If you want to get a whiter smile fast, in-office whitening can give you the results you’re looking for. To schedule a consultation, call us at (434) 977-4101.
