Professional Teeth Whitening Options for a safe and predictable smile makeover
When we ask patients what they don’t like about their smiles, tooth darkening or staining is a popular, quick response. The stains that accumulate over time can make you look older, less healthy, and less vibrant than you are. Professional teeth whitening at Asuncion Dental Group in Frederick, Maryland, can restore your teeth’ vibrant, healthy appearance – predictably, safely, and comfortably.
As with all treatments, Dr. Frederick Asuncion will evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. Whitening procedures can only be performed on healthy teeth. So, existing decay or disease must be resolved first. Likewise, not all teeth (and types of discoloration) are responsive to professional whitening services. We are happy to discuss alternative treatments, such as indirect (porcelain) veneers or direct veneers (bonding), with you.
Each of our patients is one of a kind. So, it only makes sense that we provide options for whitening. Depending on your requirements and goals, you may want to whiten your teeth with strips. These are not your OTC strips that fail to live up to their lofty promises. These strips use clinically proven ingredients. These ingredients are also sufficiently concentrated. Due to these characteristics, our professional whitening services get noticeable results.
Patients appreciate this method because it gets results fast. Wear the strips as directed by your dentist for 30 minutes to reveal a brighter smile.
Patients who want to sustain the results from treatment or looking for a longer-term solution may choose whitening trays instead. These trays are customized to your mouth. They are designed from impressions or molds of your teeth. We’ll show you how to fill the trays with potent carbamide gel. When worn as instructed, the trays deliver the gel evenly to your teeth. This system whitens your teeth over time with successive uses. Patients with a history of tooth sensitivity or concerned about the discomfort associated with whitening products may prefer to use trays.
Over time, “touch-ups” may be necessary to sustain results. Of course, one of the best things you can do for the health and beauty of your smile is to maintain professional cleanings and check-ups at our office. Cleanings remove surface stains, along with built-up plaque, for an instantly more beautiful smile and fresher breath! To schedule your appointment today, call us at (301) 690-8482.
