Are you looking for comprehensive dental care and teeth whitening in Virginia Beach, VA? You may want to consider a professional teeth-whitening appointment at our dental practice instead of unreliable over-the-counter teeth bleaching kits. Let Dr. Jennifer Waterman and the Waterman Family Dentistry team give you a white smile with our gentle but effective office treatment.

What Causes Stained Teeth?

Extrinsic stains may arise from foods and beverages to settle on the surface of your teeth. However, intrinsic stains occur beneath the tooth enamel. Myriad causes result in stains or discoloration of teeth, including:

  • Smoking or other tobacco use
  • Soda, tea, and coffee
  • Medications, such as antihistamines, antipsychotics, and antihypertensives
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Physical trauma
  • Nerve degeneration
  • Fluoride overabundance

Aside from the risk of increased tooth sensitivity, a generic home teeth-whitening procedure often misses the mark. It is far better to rely upon effective and personalized teeth whitening in Virginia Beach, VA. Our dental office will be happy to set up a teeth whitening treatment for you with Dr. Jennifer Waterman and her team.

Personalized Teeth-Whitening Options

In-office teeth whitening takes only one appointment, which starts with the dentist protecting the soft tissue around your teeth. They then apply a whitening gel directly onto the tooth’s surface and use a laser to activate the whitening agent. Depending on your stains’ severity, the dentist may reapply whitening gel for the desired shade.

While there are often immediate effects, the full results may take a few hours to develop after the teeth-whitening treatment.

Waterman’s Take-Home Kits

Our office also offers Opalescence home-whitening systems customized for personal use. These kits are much more effective than over-the-counter alternatives, providing you with custom application trays and instructions on how long to wear them during the day. Home treatments usually generate results within three applications.

Why Choose Professional Whitening?

At the office, our dentist can control the whitening agent application precisely. The application procedure is more accurate, and our professional team can monitor the results and reapply the whitening gel as needed. The adaptability also enables them to use a much more powerful bleaching gel than generic products you might find in commercial settings.

Even our at-home Opalescence kits are customized specifically to your needs, so you will see much more effective bleaching results. Professional whitening at our dental practice produces even faster, more noticeable results. Your new smile will be ready for any special occasion much faster than any retail home teeth whitening options.
