In our Annapolis dental office, we offer a wide range of teeth whitening techniques including in-office teeth bleaching, teeth whitening at home, and treatment for white stains on teeth.
What’s The Best Way to Whiten Teeth
It is easy to be overwhelmed by the variety of teeth whitening products on the market. From whitening toothpastes to gels and strips, choosing the best method can be challenging. We recommend professional teeth whitening treatment for the safest and most effective results. A dentist has access to professional strength bleaching products and can provide guidance on the best application techniques to protect gums and tooth enamel and prevent sensitivity.
Teeth Whitening For Dark or Yellow Teeth
If you have stained teeth, brown teeth, or yellow teeth, you may benefit from a combination of teeth whitening treatments. We offer Zoom in-office teeth whitening treatment for instant results. Zoom whitening is an excellent way to jump start a teeth whitening regimen if you have significant tooth discoloration. In-office teeth whitening procedures can be followed up with teeth whitening at home to achieve the desired affects.
To maintain your white smile, avoid dark foods and beverages like coffee, tea and soda. If you do enjoy these beverages, use a straw to prevent the liquid from coming in contact with the tooth enamel. You should also avoid tobacco use, a common cause for stained teeth and yellow teeth.
Treatment for White Spots on Teeth
It may seem contradictory to have white stains on teeth, however, you may have noticed white spots on your teeth. White spots on teeth are actually an indication of early tooth decay. Most often, white spots on teeth form during orthodontic treatment with metal braces. Food particles and other debris become trapped against the tooth and erode the enamel and tooth structure.
Ask your dentist about treatment options for white spots on teeth, to improve their appearance and prevent the spread of cavities.
