People have been striving to achieve white teeth for the past century, with an increasing number of fads rising to the challenge. However, the best way to get a gleaming smile is to receive professional teeth whitening from a dentist. At the Julian Center for Comprehensive Dentistry, we now offer teeth whitening near you using professionally tested and approved methods.
At the Julian Center for Comprehensive Dentistry, we strive to accommodate our patient’s lifestyles and schedules. We, therefore, offer several different types of teeth whitening: In-office and at-home.
Both types of whitening utilize the same mechanisms. A gel containing peroxide is applied to the teeth and then effected using a special light. The light causes the peroxide to break down, releasing the oxygen that removes surface and internal stains from the teeth.
During an in-office treatment, our dentist will apply gum guards, the gel, and the light over a period of 45 minutes to create immediately whiter teeth. With an at-home kit, you can whiten your teeth yourself over a longer period of time from the comfort of your own home.
Whichever procedure you choose; you get the benefit of having a treatment approved by dental professionals.
The primary benefit of having teeth whitened is cosmetic. Patients receive noticeably whiter teeth, which improves self-confidence and esteem by eliminating unsightly surface stains. It can also be a way to remove the markers of bad habits, such as discoloration from smoking or drinking coffee every day.
When you visit us at our office in Ellicott City, you are receiving a safe dental whitening. All of our products and equipment are thoroughly tested to ensure they do not damage your teeth. While some patients experience minor sensitivity to hot or cold after the procedure, it fades after 24 to 72 hours and is not a sign of lasting damage.
If you would like teeth whitening in Ellicott City, schedule an appointment at the Julian Center for Comprehensive Dentistry for a consultation. Our dentist will be able to let you know if your teeth will be affected by the treatment and explain the procedure.
