COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
Are your teeth not as white as they used to be? Over time, our teeth naturally become more yellow as we age.
For some people, use of alcohol or tobacco over the years can lead to stains that are hard to remove with brushing alone. If you are looking for the confidence that comes from a whiter smile, contact our office. Our dental professionals are proud to offer teeth whitening in Collingdale, and we’d love to talk with you about the type of smile you’re looking for.
What Do I Need to Know About Teeth Whitening?
If you are looking for fast, effective results, consider professional teeth whitening at our office. We offer treatments to make aging teeth whiter and brighter. Our treatments can also brighten teeth that have been stained by tobacco, wine, or food. Whitening products are powerful, and some people are concerned about safety. Having your treatments done in our office is the safest way to bleach your teeth. We have the equipment and experience needed to use these strong treatments correctly, and our monitoring protocols will keep you safe and comfortable.
You may be wondering if teeth whitening is for you. We’ve been able to get great results with many patients. However, you must have healthy teeth and gums. We don’t want the bleach solution to irritate your mouth and make your problems worse. We also don’t recommend teeth whitening for people who have had dental work done on their front teeth. The bleaching solution won’t work on tooth-colored crowns, caps, and fillings, so you may not get the results you’re looking for.
If you have any questions about teeth whitening or want to see if it’s right for you, we can help. Contact our office today to get started with our experienced teeth bleaching dentist.
How to Perform Teeth Whitening at Home
If you want to whiten your teeth at home, you have several options. You can purchase teeth whitening strips at your local pharmacy or grocery store. Did you know you can also get teeth whitening solutions from our office? These dentist-dispensed kits are more powerful than over-the-counter products and work quickly to give you great results.
Our system works because we create custom plastic trays that perfectly fit your upper and lower teeth. You’ll use these trays in the comfort of your own home to hold a special bleaching gel that we will give you. This gel is very powerful and, together with the trays, it produces fast results. The trays keep the gel in contact with your teeth and prevent saliva from mixing with the gel and diluting it. It’s important to use these products exactly as directed. Otherwise, the gel might get on your gums and irritate the delicate tissue.
We’ve seen our patients get great results with these products. You can use them in the comfort of your own home and on your own schedule. You won’t be entirely on your own, though. We will monitor your treatment and adjust it as needed, and if you run into any problems, we’ll be here to help. Contact us today to get started.
Calculating Teeth Whitening Costs
You may be wondering how much it costs to have your teeth professionally whitened. The truth is, the cost of teeth whitening services depends on the type of treatment you choose. The length and frequency of your treatments also impacts the teeth bleaching cost. When you schedule a consultation with us, we will provide you with a complete estimate of all your treatment costs before we begin. We want you to feel good about your treatment plans, and we know you’ll love the results.
All About Products to Whiten Your Teeth
Your local drugstore probably offers a large selection of teeth whitening products for you to buy off the shelf. These include strips, gels, pastes, rinses, and paint-on solutions. These products are easy to get and fairly inexpensive, but do they work?
Unfortunately, it’s likely you’re spending money and time on a product that won’t give you the results you want. Retail products aren’t as strong as the professional treatments we offer in our office. Using them requires multiple treatments over a longer period of time.
Instead, we encourage you to come to our office and talk with our teeth bleaching dentist. We have the experience to help you find the product that will work best for your situation.
Details of a Teeth Whitening Procedure
When you visit us for teeth whitening, we’ll first take pictures of your teeth so we can monitor your progress. We’ll carefully apply the bleaching solution to your teeth while avoiding your gums. Then, we’ll remove it and reapply it if necessary. We’ll also let you know which home treatments we recommend. We know you’ll love your brighter, whiter smile.
