Tooth whitening in Baltimore
If you want to have an extremely attractive smile, you will want it to be white and bright. At our dental practice, Quest Dental, patients are able to receive tooth whitening in Baltimore, and learn more about the common causes of teeth stains.
When you visit our dental practice for tooth whitening in Baltimore, you will be seen by one of our top-notch dentists, just one of whom is Dr. Michael White. Our dentist will talk to you about which tooth whitening procedure will work best for you. Afterwards, in order for your teeth to remain as bright and as white as possible, you will want to be sure to avoid some of the common causes of teeth stains. Having stained and yellowed teeth can make you look older, since teeth naturally yellow with age. There are foods and habits that you can avoid that will help your teeth to remain waiter and brighter longer. Cigarette smoking is one of the leading contributors to tooth staining. If you are looking for another reason to help you to quit smoking, remember that smoking will cause your teeth to look yellowed and stained faster. There are also certain beverages you will want to avoid. Cola sodas and brightly-colored sports drinks can contribute to tooth staining. Drinking coffee and tea will also make your teeth look stained, as well. If you want to drink just one of these beverages you are better off drinking coffee, since it will not stain your teeth as badly as drinking tea will. You will also want to avoid all wines. Although berries are extremely healthful and delicious to eat, you will also want to avoid eating berries, or at least eat them in small quantities. Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries all contribute to tooth staining. You will also want to avoid eating brightly-colored candies that can stain your teeth, as well.

Braces in Baltimore MD
If you are looking for an excellent dental practice where you can also receive orthodontic care, you will want to become familiar with our practice, Quest Dental. If you are thinking about getting braces in Baltimore MD, you will want to come to our dental practice to be seen by our expert and highly trained dentist, Dr. Dulan, who has had advanced training in orthodontics.
Many adults who come to our dental practice, want to have their teeth straightened using Invisalign. This is because Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth instead of using metal wires and brackets. Not only is this treatment considered to be very comfortable by our patients, but our patients also never need to worry about being embarrassed by being seen wearing metal wires and brackets on their teeth. Treatment with Invisalign takes about the same amount of time as treatment with traditional metal braces. Once it is determined that your individual bite situation can be corrected with Invisalign, CAD/CAM computer technology will be used to create your own personalized set of aligners. You will have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in your series, based on the problem being corrected. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and will slowly move your teeth into position for the next aligner. Once the last aligner has been worn, you will have your beautiful new smile. Our patients also enjoy the fact that they are able to eat anything they want during this treatment time since the clear plastic aligners are removed while they are eating. And best of all, since the aligners are clear, they are virtually invisible while they are being worn. When you are interested in getting braces in Baltimore MD you may want to consider being treated with Invisalign at our dental practice.

If you have a tooth that feels painful when you eat something hot or cold, it may be that you have an infected tooth that needs a root canal treatment. Any type of dental pain should be addressed immediately as it usually does mean that something serious needs to be attended to. The longer that dental pain is allowed to continue, generally it is true that the more difficult the treatment will be to perform, and the less likely chances are that it will be successful. If you do indeed need a root canal treatment, the sooner you have the treatment performed the better the chances are of saving your tooth. Generally root canal treatments are successful in saving teeth in 90% of cases. If you have a tooth knocked, out this will definitely need immediate attention. You will want to do your very best to try to safely transport the knocked out tooth to our office. Our office staff will be able to give you instructions on how to safely do this over the phone. Our dentist is also able to provide patients with temporary crowns or dental fillings on an emergency basis.

Maryland Children Healthy Smiles
Are you looking for a great pediatric dentist who will provide excellent dental care for your child? Do you want your child to see a dentist who is accustomed to working with children, and understands the different oral developmental stages that a child’s mouth goes through? If so, you will want to visit our pediatric dentist at Quest Dental so that your Maryland children have healthy smiles.
Our outstanding dentists who provide optimal pediatric dental care at Quest Dental are: Dr. Michael White; Dr. Michael Saffold; Dr. Lenora Caldwell; and Dr. Tamara Dulan. Our dental practice has been serving the entire family for over 24 years. We offer excellent children’s dental care as well as dental care for adults and seniors. We make sure that our Maryland children have healthy smiles by ensuring that they receive the best pediatric dental care available. We also understand that the dental care children receive at our office may well color their attitude toward dentist’s and dental visits for their entire lifetime. For this reason, we always make sure that our children have a fun and stress-free time at our office; we consider it an important part of our job to make sure that children have an enjoyable time when they visit with us, and learn that dentists are here to help them have healthy teeth. We also make sure that we leave time at each exam for parents to ask any questions they may have about their child’s oral development. Oftentimes, questions have to do with childhood developmental issues such as whether or not children should give up their pacifiers.
Our Maryland children have healthy smiles because they come to our practice from an early age for dental care. It is recommended that children come in for their first dental exam when their first baby tooth comes in or they reach one year of age – whichever happens first. Baby teeth play a very important role in a child’s development. Not only do they help your child develop good speech, but they also act as place holders for the permanent teeth that will come in years later. If the baby teeth are unable to stay in the child’s mouth, permanent teeth may erupt in the wrong place, or they may end up pushing other permanent teeth out of place when they erupt. For these reasons we want to be sure that baby teeth stay healthy and are able to remain in the child’s mouth until they are no longer needed and fall out. If you would like your child to see one of our expert pediatric dentists, contact us for an appointment.
