Revive the Brilliant Shine in Your Smile
Teeth Whitening Rockville, Maryland
The natural luster of our teeth is something that usually diminishes over time. For most of us, however, this decline is so gradual that we don’t notice it until one day we peer into the mirror or glance at an old picture, and the difference suddenly becomes clear. Smoking, coffee, tea, red wine, and certain medications can all slowly cause even the whitest, most beautiful smiles to become worn and dull. The teeth whitening treatment at Smiles by Design in Rockville, Maryland uses advanced techniques to help you revive your smile and restore your self-confidence.

The Professional Difference
Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments, the professional process we employ penetrates the enamel and allows for a deep bleaching. This quickly brightens teeth by up to ten shades while allowing patients with sensitive teeth to avoid weeks’ worth of at-home treatments. Our dentists can hone in on the patient’s desired level of brightness, too, creating a light touch-up or a dramatic overhaul. This level of fine tuning will give you the assurance of knowing that you have precisely the smile you envisioned.
The Steps to a Brighter Smile
Before the treatment begins, our team cleans the patient’s teeth to clear any plaque or other obstructions. After this thorough cleaning, a hydrogen-peroxide-based gel is placed on the teeth while the mouth is propped open. A special light is then used to activate the gel, triggering a chemical process that penetrates the enamel to lighten or altogether remove even the most stubborn stains. The whitening session lasts around an hour, giving you a smile up to ten shades brighter within a time span as long as a lunch-break.
Some Potential Disadvantages
Teeth whitening treatments do have some minor risks attached. Sometimes the gel can create gum sensitivity or irritate already sensitive gums. The quality of results may not always be what is desired, depending on how severely the teeth are discolored and the patient’s personal habits, such as smoking or coffee-drinking. Teeth whitening also does not guard against further staining, so teeth that are whitened once may return to a pre-whitened level of discoloration over time time.
