Have you been looking at your smile in the mirror and thinking that it is not as bright or as white as you would like it to be? We believe it is very important that our patients have a smile that they can be proud of. Having a whiter smile makes many patients feel more confident when they are meeting new people. Other patients just enjoy knowing that their smile is attractive. If you would like to get teeth whitening in Richmond, we hope you will come and visit us in our dental practice, Fred Ballou.
At our dental practice, our expert and highly trained dentist is Dr. Fred L. Ballou. When patients come to our practice requesting teeth whitening, we are very happy that we can provide them with two different teeth whitening options. At our practice, patients are able to receive in-office teeth whitening, or purchase an at-home teeth whitening system. Our dentist will first want to meet with you to discuss your individual situation, and help you to determine which treatment option will work best for you. He will also want to examine your teeth to make sure there are no potential problems which will arise from teeth whitening. For example, if you have tooth-colored fillings in your front teeth, or have porcelain veneers or crowns on front teeth, additional arrangements may need to be made. This is because teeth whitening solutions and gels only work on natural tooth enamel; they will not have any effect on composite or porcelain restorations. We do not want a situation to occur where after tooth whitening you are unhappy with the look of your smile because the color is uneven. However, these problems can be easily overcome, and you too will be able to enjoy all of the benefits of getting teeth whitening in Richmond.
Some patients prefer to have their teeth whitened at our office. This generally occurs in one, one-hour treatment during which time you will sit relaxing in our dentist chair. This type of treatment is preferred when you are looking for an immediate change to the look of your smile. Other patients prefer our take-home kit which they can use at their own convenience in the privacy of their own home. An additional benefit of the take-home kit is that patients have total control over the tooth whitening, and are able to stop providing themselves with the treatment as soon as they see that they have reached their desired level of tooth whitening. To get teeth whitening in Richmond simply contact our office for an appointment. Your beautiful, bright smile is now well within your reach.
