If you are looking to get a visibly whiter smile then it’s time to talk to us.teeth whitening

If you’ve been using whitening toothpastes and at-home whitening kits every day for weeks then you may be a bit frustrated to not see the results you were hoping for. When you put in so much time and effort you want to see all the hard work pay off. Unfortunately, these over the counter treatments often leave something to be desired, which is why it’s a good time to visit our Silver Spring, MD, cosmetic dentists, Dr. Gregory Hysong and Dr. Lynda LePore if you truly want to brighten your smile for the long-term.

Before getting teeth whitening in Silver Spring, you may want to ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you looking to brighten your smile quickly?
  • Are you trying to get your smile whiter before a special occasion or important event?
  • Are you looking to treat ugly yellow stains?
  • Are you an avid coffee drinker or someone who indulges in a lot of stain-producing foods and drinks?

If you said “yes” to these questions, teeth whitening might be a great option for you. Our system contains a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide to ensure that you get results quickly.

How does teeth whitening work?

When the whitening gel comes in contact with the teeth the active ingredient (typically hydrogen peroxide) destroys stain molecules within the enamel and dentin layers of the teeth to break up stains and to leave your smile looking whiter and more radiant.

It’s important to note that while teeth whitening is a great option for many people looking to give their smile a vibrant makeover, it isn’t always the best option for everyone. Teeth whitening will not work on internal stains (stains caused by trauma or certain medications) and it will not brighten restorations such as fillings or crowns.

If you are interested in getting professional teeth whitening in Silver Spring, MD, then it’s time you scheduled a consultation with Colesville Dentistry to find out if you are the ideal candidate for treatment.
