Teeth Whitening in Bethesda MD

Dental whitening in Bethesda

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “whitening” procedure.

We have all seen the ads on television for whitening strips, gels, and toothpaste. You may have tried some of them and been disappointed with the results. The trays used in these kits do not fit well, and the concentration of the bleaching agent is not intense enough for a visible difference in the shade of your teeth. Over-the-counter home whitening kits are not successful and can cause damage to the delicate gum tissue if not used properly.

If you want brighter, whiter teeth, our office offers safe, effective options that provide impressive, lasting results.

Teeth Whitening Bleach

Our teeth bleaching gel has the highest concentration of bleaching agents possible for almost immediate results. We create custom bleaching splints or trays based on impressions of your teeth to ensure a precise fit that protects your gums while ensuring the whitening gel comes into full contact with every tooth.

Wear our teeth whitening splints just a few hours a day to see quick results. Our special bleaching agent bubbles away the stains in your tooth enamel without damaging the underlying dentin. It does not damage existing dental work or cause any discomfort. After just a few days, you will see a brighter, cleaner-looking smile. You can continue to use the trays and bleaching agent until you get the desired effect, usually a few weeks of wearing the splints 3-4 hours a day. Once you have reached the level of whiteness you want, you stop using the splints except for occasional touch-ups.

Teeth whitening gels and trays are appropriate for most kinds of discoloration, including food and beverage stains, smoking, aging, and chemical damage to teeth. If your discoloration is severe, you may want to consider crowns or veneers. Still, teeth whitening provides stellar results for most patients at a very reasonable cost.

If you want immediate results, we also offer Zoom! teeth whitening. This is done in our office and requires an hour in the dentist’s chair. The results are immediate results because special lights activate and intensify the effect of the hydrogen peroxide in the whitening gel.

Who Can Get Teeth Whitening?

Anyone with healthy teeth and gums can have their teeth whitened using our system, but we recommend using it only on adults. The results tend to be more effective the younger you are. Many of our patients whiten their teeth in their twenties and thirties, but we also have patients in their eighties who use our teeth whitening trays. Whitening now will give you better results than waiting until the stains are more difficult to remove.

Where to Get Teeth Whitening

Our office can create your custom teeth splints right here in our office. When you pick them up, you also receive the whitening gel and detailed instructions for safe and effective results. Once we take impressions of your teeth, making the trays takes just a few days.

How is teeth whitening done?

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow, and spotted tooth staining
  • Works on people of any age
  • Near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouth guard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or dental veneers may be more appropriate.

Considerations for Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
