Is Professional Teeth Whitening Worth It?

cosmetic dentist baltimoreAt Valley Dental Health, we love helping patients create smiles that they are proud to show off. As we age, dental discoloration often occurs due to common foods and beverages containing powerful staining agents that attach to your dental surfaces. Over time, as these staining agents collect, they can make your teeth appear yellow and dull. To combat dental discoloration, Valley Dental Health offers professional teeth whitening services. Learn why professional teeth whitening services are worth it when compared to over-the-counter whitening products below.

Over-The-Counter Options

With over-the-counter teeth whitening options, patients should be aware that these products take a one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry. If your smile has any unique features such as gaps, missing teeth, or if you have smaller or larger teeth than the average person, these products may lead to blotchy, inconsistent results. Additionally, if you struggle with increased dental sensitivity, these products may be too strong for your teeth and cause discomfort. Some patients will come to visit us after using these products because they did not get the results they were looking to achieve, and need our help. With professional teeth whitening services, we can guarantee your desired results while over-the-counter products simply cannot.

Professional Teeth Whitening

At our Baltimore dentist office, we provide two options for our professional teeth whitening services. The first option is an in-office whitening appointment that takes about an hour to complete. The second option is a custom-made take-home whitening option designed specifically for your smile. Dr. Izadi or Dr. Rafat will custom make a whitening tray that you will wear to ensure that the whitening gel is applied to the teeth evenly without causing damage to the gums or tooth enamel. Whether you choose the in-office or take-home whitening option, we will make sure that you get the results you want. With proper care of teeth, your teeth whitening results can be very long-lasting as well.

Teeth whitening is a fast, effective way to achieve a dramatic difference in your smile’s appearance.
