Almost every person on the planet wants blindly bright, white teeth. However, even with regular dental hygiene and a good diet, a person’s teeth could still not reach their brightest, whitest potential. Teeth whitening procedures are now common and are one of the best ways to achieve that luminous brightness that you’ve always wanted. After the procedure, you’ll be able to show off your new bright smile to people and relish in their reactions. A whiter smile really does turn heads – and it can give you more confidence in all of your day-to-day activities.
Discoloration of the the teeth can be the result of genetics, medication, poor oral hygiene, aging, smoking, certain foods and beverages, or a combination of these factors. At Affinity Dental Associates in Catonsville, MD, we use the Venus Chairside Whitening Gel. Venus Chairside Whitening Gel is a chemically activated 38% hydrogen peroxide formula. It is an amazing system eliminates the need for an Ultraviolet light used in other systems, which may be irritating to those with sensitive skin, or patients who prefer to avoid unecessary UV rays.
The procedure is always performed by an experienced dental professional, so you can be assured that the procedure is safe. We place a bite guard in your mouth so you can rest comfortably while your teeth are isolated and the gel is applied directly to your teeth. You can eat or drink again as soon as the procedure is complete!
Speaking with your local Catonsville dentist can determine what kind of treatment is right for you. Whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. For example, yellow-ish hued teeth will probably bleach well, brownish-colored teeth may bleach less well, and grayish-hued teeth may not bleach well at all. Whitening also may not enhance your smile if you have had bonding or tooth-colored fillings placed in your front teeth. The whitener usually won’t affect the color of these materials, and they might stand out in your newly whitened smile. In these cases, you may want to investigate other options, like porcelain veneers, LUMINEERS® or dental bonding. For the best advice, ask your local Catonsville, Marlyand dentist.
Teeth whitening doesn’t damage a tooth’s enamel and won’t damage a tooth’s nerves or any existing dental restoration work. However, depending on the restoration work, new work might need to be done to match the color of the whitening. And although teeth whitening is not permanent, you can prolong its effects by practicing good dental hygiene and by maintaining a good diet. Keeping good dental habits will help your new, luminous smile last a lot longer.
