Have your teeth accumulated unattractive stains over the years? Have you become self-conscious about displaying your teeth in front of people due to their discoloration? If this is the case, you may have tried over-the-counter teeth whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, and kits. However, the unfortunate truth is that most of these products simply aren’t capable of providing the dramatic, long-lasting results you want. Luckily, at Goodman Dental Care, we can help with that by providing professional teeth whitening in Annapolis. Drs. Jeremy and Gary Goodman can use either in-office or take-home whitening to help you achieve stunning results you just can’t wait to show off!
With our in-office whitening treatment, your smile can be brightened by several shades in an hour or less. First, we isolate your teeth to protect the soft tissues in your mouth from becoming irritated by the bleaching gel. Then, we apply the gel, which is several times more potent than any whitening product you can find in stores or online. When the gel is activated with a special light, it breaks up the stain molecules in your enamel. Once we wipe away the gel, the stains come off with it. We can repeat this process a few times until you’re 100 percent satisfied with the new shade of your smile.
Maybe you want to achieve more gradual results, or be able to whiten from the comfort of your own home. Your cosmetic dentist in Annapolis can make that happen with take-home whitening. When you come into our office, we take impressions of your teeth in order to create trays designed to fit your unique bite. Because the trays are custom-made, it ensures that your gums, tongue, and lips won’t experience irritation from the whitening gel. You’ll simply wear the trays, along with the gel, for a prescribed amount of time each day, typically around 30 minutes. Most patients begin to see a difference after just a day or two, but you should achieve optimal results after about two weeks of daily use.
Along with the vastly superior aesthetic results you’ll see in the mirror, getting your teeth professionally whitened by a dentist comes with a host of benefits, such as:
