Restore Your Bright Smile
If your teeth have become stained and yellowed due to the natural aging process, tobacco use, or the consumption of dark beverages like tea, coffee, and wine, teeth whitening can give you a bright smile again.
Teeth whitening at Pinnacle Family Dental is fast, affordable, and completely pain-free. Whether you opt for in-office treatments or take-home teeth whitening trays, Dr. Kim can help you get the cosmetic treatment you need to restore your smile and your self-confidence.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Professional teeth whitening products use peroxides to remove stains from your tooth enamel. Peroxide compounds contain extremely volatile oxygen molecules, and when they touch surface stains of your teeth, they break the molecular bonds that hold stains to your enamel. This results in “bleaching” of the hard enamel material, and a brighter smile.
Whiten Your Teeth in Our Ellicott City Office
If you are looking for fast results, and a smile that’s up to 5-10 shades brighter after a single appointment, in-office teeth whitening is a great choice. During your procedure, Dr. Kim will apply a highly-concentrated peroxide product directly to your teeth.
Then, a special ultraviolet (UV) light is used to boost the power and efficiency of the peroxides and speed up the bleaching process. The procedure usually only takes 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of your tooth stains. A single appointment is enough to see significant results, but most patients opt for 2 appointments over several weeks, to ensure that all of their surface stains are removed.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Take-home teeth whitening is ideal if you would prefer to avoid the dentist’s chair, and would like to whiten your teeth on your own schedule, in the comfort of your own home. Dr. Kim will provide you with a set of custom-built whitening trays, and provide you with instructions for optimal results.
Take-home teeth whitening typically takes a bit longer to achieve the same results as in-office treatments. However, some patients prefer this, since a more gradual whitening process makes it less obvious that they have had their teeth whitened professionally.
The Benefits Of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening has a number of great benefits. Most notably, it makes you feel more confident in your smile. You’ll also look younger, since tooth staining and yellowing is often a sign of advanced age. In addition, whitening is incredibly affordable, and the procedure is totally non-invasive, making it perfect if you would prefer not to undergo any surgical cosmetic treatments.
