Dentist South Solomons
Professional teeth whitening is one of the easiest, most effective, and affordable ways to spruce up your smile. Teeth whitening works by using custom whitening trays that we create in our Lexington Park dental office. Custom trays are best because they hold the professional gel in place more effectively. They fit well and stay put, making them easier to use than generic whitening trays.
You place a small dot of whitening gel in each tooth area of your custom whitening trays. You only need to whiten the teeth that are visible when you smile. Wear your whitening trays for the amount of time that your dentist has recommended – this may vary person to person depending on your level of stains and if you have tooth recession. Tooth recession may make your teeth more sensitive to whitening products.
We make teeth whitening in Lexington Park easy! We create your trays and provide you with enough whitening gel to achieve your desired results. If you should require touch up whitening, you can use your same trays and purchase refill whitening gel in our office.
How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?
How long your teeth stay bright and white depends upon your lifestyle habits. Using tobacco, drinking red wine, soda, or eating colorful foods will stain your teeth more quickly. It is not a problem to touch up your teeth, but avoiding these staining behaviors will preserve your smile in the long run.
What If I Experience Side Effects?
Most people can whiten their teeth without a problem. If you experience sensitivity, be sure to call and let us know! We have solutions to make teeth whitening more comfortable and still remain effective. Fluoride treatments and desensitizing gels can help!
