Teeth Whitening Ellicott City, MD

Do you have one or more discolored teeth? Are you looking for an effective teeth whitening treatment? Dr. Denise Halliburton offers teeth whitening to patients in Ellicott City, MD. Tooth stains can be intrinsic or extrinsic. Intrinsic stains are stains caused by injury or infection. They can occur beneath the enamel. Extrinsic stains are cosmetic stains on the tooth surface, often caused by foods and beverages, tobacco, or poor oral hygiene. Our take-home whitening treatment is a cosmetic dentistry service that can address yellowed, stained, and discolored teeth.

Teeth Whitening Treatments

Our take-home whitening treatments are made up of a kit that includes custom whitening trays, whitening gel, and a curing light. We customize whitening treatment by taking dental impressions of their teeth. These impressions are used to create a take-home whitening tray. After the tray is created, it is used to hold the whitening gel against the teeth. In our office, we inform patients of the time of day and length of treatment required each day.

If you have severe tooth staining that does not react well to whitening, we offer dental veneers, tooth bonding, and dental crowns. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain ceramic that cover the front of the teeth. Tooth bonding uses a biocompatible material that is molded and sculpted onto teeth. Dental crowns fully cover teeth and are also a good option for worn teeth.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

What are the benefits of tooth whitening?

Teeth whitening treatments not only improve patients’ confidence but also keep them motivated about maintaining their oral health. Take-home whitening treatments also provide a safe and customizable way for patients to brighten their smiles by multiple shades.

How do store-bought whitening products compare to professional teeth whitening?

Whitening strips, toothpaste, and gels found in stores are often not as effective as professional whitening treatments. They can also irritate the gums and cause tooth sensitivity. Our high-quality, professional teeth whitening treatment uses an active whitening concentrate that is formulated to address tooth sensitivity while brightening the smile.

Does teeth whitening treatment cause tooth sensitivity?

Tooth sensitivity is a common side effect of teeth whitening treatment. Our professional whitening gel is formulated with tooth sensitivity in mind. Patients can also control the amount of whitening gel they use when they apply it to their whitening trays.

When will I see results from teeth whitening treatment?

Take-home whitening results will differ from person to person. Your own results will depend on your tooth structure and how frequently you are whitening your teeth. Because take-home teeth whitening is gradual, patients often see results after a week or two. The best way to maintain these results is to stay away from tobacco products, coffee, tea, and other products that can stain teeth.
