If getting your teeth whitened is on your dental care list, you should schedule a visit with the Cosmetic dentistry team in Cockeysville, MD at Padonia Dental Associates. Dr. Rodrigo Vallar, Dr. Richa Dutta, and Dr. Youngsook Chae are ready to help brighten your smile.

A Closer Look at Teeth Whitening

When you have your teeth professionally whitened, one of our qualified dentists will use a whitening agent to restore the natural whiteness of your teeth. When the procedure is done properly, the whitening agent will break the stains on your teeth down into smaller particles, which makes the color of the stains less concentrated. The end result is brighter teeth.

Today, there are an array of teeth whitening products available on the market. Although these products offer some whitening benefits, many of them contain abrasives that can do more harm than good to your teeth.

If you want your teeth professionally whitened, you shouldn't replace cosmetic dentistry procedures in Cockeysville, MD with over-the-counter dental products. Consult with Dr. Villar, Dr. Dutta, or Dr. Chae before using these products.

Can You Whiten All your Teeth?

In many cases, veneers, caps, and crowns don't respond to teeth whitening. Additionally, injured teeth that are brown or black don't respond well to professional whitening. Many times black teeth are a sign of a serious problem that one of our doctors should check immediately.

As tooth enamel becomes thinner over time, the inner part of your teeth (known as Dentin) starts to darken, which causes your teeth to slowly turn yellow. Fortunately, this part of your teeth responds well to teeth whitening.

Why Choose a Professional Teeth Whitening

Whiter teeth mean a brighter smile, and most people with stained or discolored teeth want a complete, natural-looking smile. A professional teeth whitening gives you a brighter smile and much more.

  • More Self-Esteem- Stained or discolored teeth suppress your instinct to smile. Whiter, cleaner teeth restore that instinct and give you a natural boost of self-esteem.
  • Improved Oral Health- A professional teeth whitening kills germs and bacteria that cause your teeth to decay. You'll also pay closer attention to your oral hygiene after a whitening.
  • Affordable- Under the scope of dental procedures available today, teeth whitening is among the most affordable. Since your natural teeth remain intact during the process, there's no need to pay for added procedures.
