Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that removes stains and discoloration from the surface of the teeth, revealing a brighter and more youthful smile. This cosmetic treatment uses dental-grade bleaching agents to quickly and efficiently whiten the teeth, improve your appearance, and boost your self-confidence.

Types of Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional whitening is a type of cosmetic dental treatment that involves bleaching a patient's teeth in order to remove discoloration and stains that have accumulated from long-term exposure to pigmented foods and drinks, tobacco, and other environmental factors. 

This treatment can be administered by a dentist or dental hygienist in a dental office. Some dentists also offer at-home teeth whitening trays to be used in the comfort of the patient's home.

In-office Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening is an effective way to improve your smile and get brighter and whiter teeth. In-office teeth whitening uses a higher concentration of bleaching gel than at-home kits, which is why the in-office procedure is more effective and produces more noticeable results. 

Our dentist in Greenbelt, MD, will begin by cleaning your teeth and removing plaque and tartar from their surface. The bleaching material is applied to each tooth individually and then activated with a UV light or laser to speed up the chemical reaction that takes place when the gel comes into contact with the teeth. 

After the procedure is complete, our dentist will clean your teeth again and examine your mouth to ensure that there is no irritation of the gum tissues caused by treatment. You may also be given take-home whitening trays that should be used daily at home to further improve the shade of your smile.

After the treatment is completed, patients should talk to our dentist in Greenbelt, MD, about caring for their teeth to maintain results and prevent new staining. They should also avoid using tobacco products, drinking dark liquids like coffee, tea, and soda, and eating foods that can stain the teeth. 

At-home Whitening Kits

At-home whitening kits are also available at our dental office in Greenbelt, MD. They are recommended for patients who prefer to undergo the treatment in the comfort of their own homes or as a follow-up to an in-office whitening treatment. 

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

The results of a professional teeth whitening procedure will typically last for several months before additional touch-up treatments are required to maintain results. Patients who choose to undergo professional teeth whitening often find that this cosmetic enhancement gives them the boost of confidence they need to make positive changes to their overall appearance. Other benefits include improved oral health and a more youthful smile.
