Often, when people think of cosmetic dentistry, they see dollar signs. However, there are plenty of low cost options available that can effectively improve the look of almost any smile. One of the simplest and least costly ways to enhance the appearance of your teeth is to whiten them. In fact, for many people, whitening can have a dramatic aesthetic effect and improve one’s self confidence. There are a number of whitening products available which range in price. The following are offered here at Aesthetic Dentistry of Charlottesville:

  • Zoom! In-Office Whitening
    • The most dramatic method available today to whiten your teeth is in-office treatment with Philips Zoom! Zoom! is the premiere light-accelerated, in-office system that uses a high intensity light in combination with powerful whitening agents to deliver maximum results.
  • Boost In-Office Whitening
    • For a brighter, whiter smile without the light, opt for Opalescence Boost, an in-office, chemically activated whitening treatment that offers results in about an hour. Opalescence Boost features a unique, chemically activated formula that allows us to whiten your teeth without the heat or ultraviolet rays of a light which can cause sensitivity for some patients.
  • Custom Home Whitening Trays
    • For patients who prefer to whiten their teeth at home, the best results are achieved using custom made whitening trays and high potency whitening gel available only in a professional dental office. If you elect this option, we start by taking impressions of your upper and lower teeth. We then create models of your teeth using the impressions. From these models, we can fabricate custom trays for you to use at home.
  • Tres White Home Whitening Kit
    • Opalescence Trèswhite Supreme is a simple, fast, and great-tasting way to start whitening or brighten between in-office treatments. It’s also perfect for busy patients who don’t have time for appointments and those who have whitened in the past and only require mild/moderate results or touch ups.
