What do you think when you see a person who has a bright, white, sparkling smile? Probably that they take good care of themselves and their teeth. If you want your smile to sparkle, talk to a dentist at Williamsburg Family Dentistry in Williamsburg, VA about teeth whitening, cleaning, and polishing. It can give your smile a major boost in just an hour’s time.

Why Patients Want Whiter Teeth
A survey conducted by Kelton Research found that having white teeth can have significant social benefits. It can lead to more successful results in a person’s career and love life. Besides the obvious aesthetic improvement, a teeth whitening treatment can give a person a renewed perspective and motivation when navigating daily life. Knowing your smile is white and more attractive will give you more confidence to interact with others and participate in social activities.

Teeth Whitening: What to Expect
At Williamsburg Family Dentistry in Williamsburg, VA, your teeth can be whitened professionally by a dentist with a procedure that takes about 60-90 minutes. Many people decide to schedule this visit on a lunch break. Your gums and lips are protected with a retracting device, and then a dental whitening bleach is applied to each of your front teeth. The dentist may apply a light to the teeth to achieve the desired level of whitening.

A Sparkling Smile
In addition to whitening your smile, your dentist will also make it shine and sparkle by polishing it to perfection. You are also responsible for extending the improved appearance of your teeth. The more regularly you brush your teeth (preferably with an enamel strengthening and whitening paste) the better. Using a straw to drink beverages that could stain your teeth could also help. Seeing your dentist regularly for cleanings and checkups is also key.

A Better Smile Within 24 Hours
Because of the dental technology behind teeth whitening treatments, you don’t have to wait weeks to have a better-looking smile. Your teeth can sparkle after just an hour spent at the dentist’s office.
