Teeth Whitening – Millersville, MD

Whiter Smile. Brighter Future.

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental solutions available. While many patients turn to over-the-counter kits that promise brighter smiles in less time, the reality is countless dollars are spent on lackluster results. Fortunately, our team at McCarl Dental Group at Shipley’s Choice is here to deliver effective take-home whitening kits that boost smiles by several shades, allowing patients to embrace a whiter, brighter smile for the future. Call us today to find out how you can get started.

Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Patients who struggle with intrinsic (internal) and extrinsic (external) stains and discoloration are considered good candidates for teeth whitening. However, there are considerations our team must factor in when completing a thorough consultation.

If we discover that you have signs of tooth decay, cavities, or gum disease, it will be necessary to address those with proper treatment options before moving forward with teeth whitening. Neglecting these problems can result in worsening oral health issues and costlier care.

Once you are cleared to receive teeth whitening, we will discuss brightening your smile with whitening options.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

When meeting with your cosmetic dentist to discuss your candidacy for treatment, we will go over how teeth whitening works. While we only offer take-home whitening kits at our Millersville office, you can expect outstanding results that will help to boost your confidence.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Our team will equip you with Whitening kits that make it easy to brighten your smile on your own time. From the comfort of your home, you can improve the shade of your smile in just a few short days.

By wearing customized trays filled with high-grade bleaching gel for 30 minutes each day, the whitening mixture penetrates the enamel to eliminate surface and deep-down stains over the course of about two weeks. When finished, you will see noticeably dramatic results that allow for a beautiful, healthy-looking smile.

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

While teeth whitening is not a permanent cosmetic solution, you can extend the lifespan of your results by committing to these helpful tips:

  • Maintaining good oral hygiene at home by brushing, flossing, and rinsing
  • Avoiding dark-colored staining beverages and foods or limiting them as much as possible
  • Keeping your regular dental checkups and cleanings with our dental team
  • Giving up unhealthy habits like smoking and using tobacco products as well as biting your fingernails or using your teeth as tools
  • Asking about follow-up treatments that can be used at home to better maintain results
