Whitening vs Bleaching At St. Mary’s Dental

Whitening vs Bleaching At St. Mary's Dental In Mechanicsville

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service that we provide almost daily at St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville. Everyone, it seems, would like to have a brighter smile.

Our teeth whitening patients affirm that a whiter smile boosts self confidence and can take years of wear and discoloration away to reveal a brighter smile.

Teeth whitening and teeth bleaching, however, describe two different things.

  • Teeth whitener can refer to any product used to remove stains from tooth enamel: toothpaste, DIY strips, and some mouthwashes are safe and cost-effective and can improve teeth with continued, regular use. They’re a good choice for anyone with sensitive teeth and gums.
  • The term “bleaching” is used to mean a teeth whitening product that contains a form of bleach, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. For best results, teeth bleaching should be administered in-office by a dentist. The results tend to be far superior to any over-the-counter product.

At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville we have transformed countless smiles with our teeth whitening. People from North Waldorf, East Huntingtown, and South Laplata come to us for whitening and other cosmetic dentistry services. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!
