Zoom!’s line of at-home products offer a variety of peroxide levels, durations of wear, and result times.

Call the Cosmetic Dentist Greenbelt, MD Prefers

For Greenbelt, MD residents with sensitive teeth, a brilliant smile doesn’t have to be out of reach, with the wide variety of Zoom! Whitening products offered by McCarl Dental Group. There are some cases where patients’ teeth will be too sensitive even for the gentlest whitening products. Sometimes dark, staining that goes beneath the enamel layer of the teeth cannot be removed through whitening. When this happens, we offer thin veneers that require no dental preparation, and regular veneers to cover deep set stains. As an added bonus, veneers can also reduce tooth sensitivity. Call our Greenbelt or Millersville offices to find out more or schedule your whitening consultation today.

AN ANNAPOLIS DENTAL PATIENT ASKED WHY TEETH DARKEN WITH AGE

March 11, 2010 in Dentistry,Teeth Whitening by McCarl Dental Group

Aging and genetics contribute to tooth discoloration.  Another major cause of darkened teeth are staining substances including coffee, tea, cola and red wine or smoking.  We also see antibiotic staining from tetracycline use during childhood, as well as discoloration from old amalgam fillings.  Professional teeth whitening at McCarl Dental Group conveniently located near Annapolis Maryland is a great way to brighten a smile.

Please click here Invisalign Orthodontics and Teeth Whitening to watch our video of McCarl dental patients who are delighted with their bright smiles from professional teeth whitening.

Whitening toothpastes contain mild abrasives that can remove staining on the outside of the teeth but do not alter the intrinsic color of teeth. Professional tray system teeth whitening or bleaching corrects most types of discoloration by removing intrinsic stains. Professional teeth whitening is a quick and safe way to whiten teeth 2-5 shades.

At McCarl Dental Group, we recommend the in-home tray teeth whitening system. First, we take impressions to make custom fitted teeth whitening trays. A precise fit of the tray is essential to the success of the whitening treatment. In the comfort of your home, you place the prescription whitening gel in the custom fitted tray. We recommend DayWhite, NightWhite and  Zoom teeth whitening gels.  During the specified time, the tooth whitening gel oxidizes allowing oxygen to enter the enamel which whitens or bleaches the teeth. The tooth is made lighter but the structure of the tooth is not changed.

Professional teeth whitening is an excellent solution for many patients however fillings, crowns, and bonding will not lighten past their original color.  Teeth with yellow and light brown stains usually lighten well, but gray colored teeth often do not bleach as well. There are many excellent options for patients who are not good candidates for enhancing their smile with teeth whitening.  For these dental patients, porcelain veneers may give the best results.  The dentists at McCarl Dental Group are included in Americas Top Dentists and are experts on all types of smile makeovers and cosmetic dental reconstruction.

If you are interested in enhancing your smile, whether through teeth bleaching, ultra thin veneers, traditional porcelain veneers, or crowns, please make an appointment for a complimentary consultation at McCarl Dental Group.  We offer professional teeth whitening and smile makeovers to our dental patients in Annapolis, Maryland and also our dental patients in Severna Park, Crofton, Crownsville and Millersville, College Park, Lanham, Seabrook, Bowie, New Carrollton, Laurel and Greenbelt.

ARE OVER-THE-COUNTER WHITENERS AS EFFECTIVE AS PROFESSIONAL WHITENING PRODUCTS?

December 31, 2009 in Dentistry,Teeth Whitening by McCarl Dental Group

Professional teeth whiteners are significantly more effective than over-the-counter products.  Our every day toothpastes contain abrasive particles that help scrub stains from teeth.  When stains are too stubborn for toothpaste, whiteners are often a great choice for brightening a smile.  All whitening products are most effective after you have had your teeth professionally cleaned by a dental hygienist. The professional teeth whitening experts at McCarl Dental Group are Annapolis top dentists.  We offer discount teeth whitening. McCarl Dental Group at Shipley’s Choice is conveniently located near Annapolis Maryland and Severna Park.

Over-the-counter whitening gels and strips contain formulas that whiten teeth from the inside but are less concentrated than professional whiteners prescribed by your dentist.   Results will vary depending on the tooth color, types of stain, and overall oral health.  It doesn’t hurt to try these products, and some people get pretty good results.  But typically, we do not see a dramatic difference.  If you’re looking for significant color changes in your teeth and a more long-lasting result, then your best bet is to see your dentist, who has access to the most effective whitening technologies.

The Greenbelt and Severna Park Dentists at McCarl Dental Group offer teeth whitening at our cost as a gift to our new and existing patients.  Tray system whitening allows patients the choice of wearing trays for 30 minutes during the day for up to a week, or for about three nights while sleeping.  This whitening technique is very comfortable, and our patients are delighted with the fabulous, long lasting results.  Based on our many years of experience with whitening and bleaching products, we have found that both the Zoom Whitening System and DayWhite Nite White are highly effective.   Please visit the McCarl Dental Group offices in Greenbelt or Shipley’s Choice Medical Park to take advantage of  our Greenbelt, Millersville, Annapolis and Severna Park Teeth Whitening discounts.
