Benefits of Whitening Your Teeth

The hassles of daily living can occasionally result in the loss of a physical aspect we desire to keep, such as getting proper sleep, keeping a healthy diet, and having bright, white teeth. While some of these require changes in your personal habits, the shade of your teeth can be improved with the help of a dentist. 


At Hillcrest Dental, we perform a number of different treatments to help improve the health and appearance of your smile. With our years of experience and a staff devoted to providing friendly and comfortable patient care, we continue to be the best dental practice in Charlottesville, Virginia. From regular checkups and root canals, to veneer placement and teeth whitening services, we have provided numerous expert dental services for our patients over the many decades since our practice was founded. Here are some of the benefits you can receive when you get a teeth whitening: 

Modest Alternative

Teeth whitening is the least invasive and complicated among the numerous cosmetic dental treatments that we provide. Whiter teeth can be gained by getting a set of veneers, yet this involves grinding a portion of each tooth down in order for them to be placed. On the other hand, a tooth whitening simply involves your dentist creating a set of custom trays. Then, whenever you are able to, you fill the trays with a whitening gel and leave them one for a minimum of 30 minutes at a time.

Improved Oral Care

Patients who receive a teeth whitening treatment have also shown great improvements in caring for their dental health. As mentioned before, the pressures of daily living causes some of us to lose sight of certain traits we may want to maintain. That includes keeping a bright smile.  Once we lose it, we tend to fall short in taking steps to get it back. However, once we perform a teeth whitening treatment, we have found our patients brushing, flossing, and scheduling regular cleanings, taking care of their teeth with a renewed vigor. 

Convey Greater Confidence

Another benefit in getting a teeth whitening is that it induces those who receive one with a refreshed sense of confidence in themselves. It is known that smiling more often results in gaining more and more confidence than before, and that only increases the amount you receive upon improving your smile. You’ll no longer experience the self-consciousness or worry over the color of your teeth. After a teeth whitening, you’ll feel free to let the whole world see you smile.

I highly recommend them for any dental work. Thank you."

  • "I was having toothache pain in my lower jaw. I called the next day to make an appointment and was given an appointment time for the very next day. I saw Dr. Ryan, who is knowledgeable, caring and has great people skills with his patients. I made another appointment to come back and have the work done."

  • “Dr. Buckwalter and his assistant did a wonderful job with our 8 year old today. While they were busy talking teeth, my 3 year old was enjoying his new lip balm and balloon! Finished up with a treat from Starbucks with our gift card. So glad our kiddos don’t fear the dentist. More like they want to keep stopping in."
