Understanding Dental Whitening

Teeth Whitening, or bleaching, is a safe, economical and popular way to brighten your smile. In less than two weeks, your customized take home teeth whitening kit can take years off of your smile, boosting your confidence and providing a more youthful appearance.

When it comes to a quick, economical and painless smile makeover, teeth whitening can be the perfect solution. Dr. Finlay & Associates offers professional teeth whitening for patients in the Baltimore and Annapolis area that can take years off of your smile and boost your confidence.

At Home Teeth Whitening

Store bought whitening systems don’t compare to the predictability and results of professional teeth whitening. Even though there are many cheap options for over-the-counter teeth whitening, professional teeth whitening will deliver predictable and noticeable results faster and with little effort. The best option for teeth whitening generally involves a higher investment but generates more comfortable, consistent and long lasting results. Cheap teeth whitening solutions require more work and generate much poorer results.

We offer a professional at-home teeth whitening treatment with custom fit bleaching trays. This provides even results with less irritation and tooth sensitivity. Custom trays are worn comfortably at night while you sleep or during another period of the day. In just a few applications, you’ll notice a dramatic improvement in the color and brightness of your smile.

Permanent Results

When properly maintained, teeth whitening results are permanent. It is normal for teeth to become darker over time. Certain food and drink, such as coffee, tea, and sodas, can cause yellow or brown stains on teeth. Childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene are also reasons your teeth may become discolored. As long as you’re an active patient in our office, you’ll receive complimentary whitening solution to maintain your white smile.

If you need a new whitening tray, there will be an additional fee.

This program is retro active if you have maintained consecutive dental prophylaxis twice a year since your initial investment in professional whitening or a touch up kit.

Teeth Whitening What to Expect

After meeting with you to evaluate your dental health and discuss your cosmetic goals, Dr. Finlay or Dr. Lim will take impressions of your teeth. These are used in the fabrication of your take home custom bleaching trays. These custom trays will ensure a consistent application of the bleaching agent and will minimize irritation of the gums, a common side effect with over the counter options.

Your take home teeth whitening kit will contain a set of bleaching trays and professional quality bleaching gel. We will provide instructions on how to apply the trays and how long to wear them daily. For most patients, results gradually emerge over a period of 10-14 days.

Professional teeth whitening can effectively treat tooth discoloration caused by age, certain lifestyle habits and some medical concerns. For tooth stains that may not respond to a teeth whitening treatment, we offer alternative cosmetic dentistry treatments that can offer more permanent results: porcelain veneers and dental crowns.
