Teeth Whitening

Also known as teeth bleaching, teeth whitening is the dental treatment you need if you want to brighten the appearance of dull, discolored, or yellow teeth. There’s no other cosmetic dental treatment available that can rejuvenate your smile as quickly and easily. 

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening

Many patients who come to us for professional teeth whitening in Pen Argyl, PA have tried and been disappointed by over-the-counter whitening kits. The problem is that store-bought teeth whitening products can’t compare with the dramatic brightening we can achieve with prescription-strength whiteners.

When you choose us to help you whiten your teeth, you have the support of a dental team to whom you can turn for support. If you experience sensitivity or aren’t seeing the results you’d hoped for, we’ll customize your treatment to fit your needs.

We Offer Easy Teeth Whitening Options

At Dental Wellness of Pen Argyl, we offer two ways to achieve a brighter smile – in-office power bleaching and customized take-home whitening kits.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office power bleaching is fast and effective. It’s the perfect choice if you’re on a tight timeline for a wedding, class reunion, or another event where you want to look your best.

We start with thorough teeth cleaning to remove plaque and tartar that can produce uneven results. In an appointment that takes about an hour, we can get your teeth as many as six shades whiter. 

Customized Teeth Whitening Kits

If you prefer to whiten your teeth in private and at your own pace, we recommend a customized take-home teeth whitening kit. Instead of the one-size-fits-all trays you get with a store-bought kit, we use dental impressions to customize your trays.

Since they’re made just for you, the trays cover all surfaces of your teeth evenly. The snug fit of customized whitening trays also helps prevent the gel from seeping out and irritating sensitive gum tissue.

Whitening your teeth at home with our customized kit is easy. We’ll show you how to place the whitening gel in your trays, and we recommend that you wear them every day for 15 to 30 minutes. At the end of two weeks, you should see results that are six to eight shades brighter than when you started.

How to Maintain Your Bright Smile 

Once you see how beautiful your bright new smile is, you want to make sure the results last as long as possible.

  • Brush twice a day and floss once to remove plaque and food debris that dull your smile.
  • Cut back on coffee, red wine, dark berries, and other foods that can stain your teeth.
  • Stop smoking. There’s no way to maintain a bright, healthy-looking smile if you smoke or use tobacco.
  • Use your trays and remaining whitening gel for monthly touchups at home.
  • Visit us every six months for a thorough teeth cleaning to remove surface stains and plaque and tartar buildup and leave you with a bright, fresh smile.

Whether you have stained teeth from drinking red wine or coffee, or a smoking habit has left you with yellow or brown teeth, call us Dental Wellness of Pen Argyl for a dental appointment. We’ll help you decide which whitening method will best help you achieve the bright smile of your dreams.
