If it seems like everyone has become obsessed with whiter, brighter teeth in recent years, it turns out there is a lot more at stake than teeth whiteningpersonal vanity. According to Forbes and popular dating site Match.com, studies have found that not only will whiter teeth help people land a date, they can also help to elevate an applicant to the top of the candidate pool when looking for a job. But with so many options to choose from, knowing how to get - and maintain - whiter teeth, while also preserving oral health and avoiding abrasive and ineffective products can be overwhelming. Consult with Dr. Susan Pearson, your Silver Spring, MD dentist, before investing in a tooth whitening product, in order to find the most effective and safe option.

Professional Teeth Whitening Treatment in Silver Spring, MD

There are a number of over the counter products designed to help reverse the effects of diet, lifestyle factors like smoking and aging on our teeth. While products like whitening toothpastes and gel trays can help to some degree, professional whitening treatments are the best option to permanently remove stains and protect the teeth from harsh and abrasive agents that can strip away protective tooth enamel over time. Dr. Pearson offers at-home teeth whitening options. A custom tray is made specifically for your smile and a bleaching gel which is more effective than over the counter options is used.

When to See a Dentist for Stained and Discolored Teeth

All dental stains are not created equal. Some stains (usually gray or brown in color) develop from damage to the dentin, the layer below the enamel. Typically caused by trauma, or as a side effect of certain medications, this type of stain does not respond to surface whitening treatments. In this case, a dentist will likely recommend cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers, which are an effective and long term option for whitening teeth.
