Teeth Whitening – Rockville, MD

Transform Your Smile from the Comfort of Home

If you’ve been to your local grocery store or pharmacy recently, then you know that there is no shortage of over-the-counter whitening kits. And that doesn’t even include all of the products you can purchase online! There’s just one problem: these products overpromise and underdeliver. That’s because they contain diluted brightening gels and flimsy applicators. Luckily, there’s a considerably more effective and equally as convenient alternative: take-home teeth whitening kits from our dedicated cosmetic dentist, Dr. Robert J. Sanker.

Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Patients schedule a consultation for all sorts of reasons – from severe dental discoloration to relatively mild stains. Either way, we need to conduct a thorough oral exam and learn all about your smile goals before determining if teeth whitening is the ideal cosmetic dental treatment for you. Fortunately, this is the case for the majority of patients who visit us with healthy teeth and gums. Even if that’s not the case, we can begin your treatment plan with the necessary restorative care so that your dream smile isn’t out of reach for long.

How Does Take-Home Teeth Whitening Work?

We touched on in the first section why over-the-counter teeth whitening kits don’t work, including that they rely on diluted whitening agents. Our professional treatments, on the other hand, come with high-quality bleaching gel as well as customized oral trays. In addition to providing you with these, we will give you specific instructions on how often to wear them. Then, you can use them at your leisure, like while you’re watching Netflix or relaxing by the pool. Around the two-week mark, you’ll notice that your teeth are significantly brighter!

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

The best way to prevent dental discoloration from surfacing soon after your treatment is by taking great care of your smile. That includes:

  • Brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash consistently
  • Using a straw when drinking coffee, wine, and soda
  • Eating light-colored foods, like white fish and plain yogurt
  • Avoiding unhealthy dental habits, like smoking
  • Getting a dental checkup and cleaning twice a year

As always, if you have any questions about professional teeth whitening or you’d like to learn more about the treatment process, you’re more than welcome to reach out to us!
