Teeth whitening services provided by your Towson, MD, dentist, Dr. Brittany Bergeron of Town Center Cosmetic Dentistry can revitalize your dull smile. Wondering what whitening can do for you? Whitening offers these four benefits.
No more stains
Stains from foods, beverages, and tobacco products are a common cause of dull teeth. Teeth whitening eliminates stains by breaking apart pigments that make your smile look yellow or faded. These dark pigments settle into microscopic pores in your tooth enamel any time you eat or drink dark or brightly colored foods and drinks.
It's hard to feel confident when your teeth are dull and stained. If frowning has become your go-to facial expression due to tooth stains, whitening can help you turn your smile upside down. In fact, after a whitening session, you may find that it's difficult to stop smiling.
A noticeable improvement in your smile
If you've tried over-the-counter whitening kits or whitening toothpaste, you may not have been impressed with the results. These whiteners don't always provide the results you expect or may take weeks or months just to lighten your teeth by one shade.
Professional whitening offers much better results. Over-the-counter whitening products contain a weaker formulation of hydrogen peroxide, the natural stain remover your dentist uses to eliminate stains.
Whitening at the Towson dental office only takes about an hour. While the whitening gel works its magic, you can catch up on your reading, find out what's new on social media, or just relax. Once your dentist removes the whitening gel at the end of your treatment, your teeth may be as much as eight shades whiter.
The safest whitening experience
Poorly fitting whitening kit trays can spread whiteners over your sensitive roots and gums, causing sensitivity and pain. Some whitening powders and pastes can also cause problems. If they erode your tooth enamel, the darker dentin layer of your teeth will be exposed, making your teeth look permanently yellow.
Your dentist protects your gums and roots before your whitening session begins and carefully monitors the entire whitening process. If sensitivity has been an issue for you in the past, she can even adjust the concentration of the hydrogen peroxide.
