Teeth Whitening

Many of our patients at Cummins Dental Group here in Silver Spring, Maryland, come into our office looking to improve the appearance of their smile. We offer many different cosmetic dental treatments for our patients determining what exactly they want to change about their smile. A very popular cosmetic treatment we provide is in-office and take-home professional teeth whitening.

There are many reasons why a person may want and need teeth whitening including:

  • Staining over time due to food and drink choices
  • The patient’s natural tooth color is more yellow toned than desired
  • The patient would feel more confident in their smile if it was bright and white

In-Office Teeth Whitening

For our patients who are looking to whiten their teeth quickly, we would suggest taking advantage of our in-office whitening. Doing the whitening in the office consists of high-concentrated peroxide gel being applied to the teeth. This process takes usually about an hour in our dental chair.

At the end of the hour, you will notice that your teeth have become multiple shades whiter.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Whitening can be done in the comfort of your own home, when you have the time, due to our take-home whitening kits. Dental trays and bleach are purchased from the office and are used at home when the time is right for you. This bleach has a lower concentration than the in-office bleach, therefore it can be used more often and for longer periods.

We take whitening very seriously in our office because it can make a big change in the lives of our patients. If you desire to whiten, our dentist will speak closely to you about your wants and will help you decide which whitening is best and how to maintain your white smile.
