Would you like to whiten your smile? If your teeth are stained or yellowed – even from difficult-to-treat tetracycline stains – Bucks County Smiles can help! Our highly experienced teeth whitening dentists in Yardley can offer several safe and professional options to lighten your teeth.
Unfortunately, some normal, everyday habits can leave a lasting impression on the color of your teeth (e.g., drinking a cup of coffee in the morning or taking certain prescription medication). Teeth whitening treatments lift these stains and improve the shade of your teeth, brightening your smile.
You may seek teeth whitening treatment for one of several different reasons. You may have deep-set stains from smoking or drinking lots of coffee, tea, or red wine. Perhaps you have simply experienced a darkening in your teeth from normal wear and tear over the years. These are all suitable reasons to desire teeth whitening treatment.
If you have embedded tetracycline stains from childhood antibiotic use, you may have been told in the past that teeth whitening can’t help you. We have good news! With the latest teeth bleaching technologies, we can now successfully treat even the most stubborn tetracycline stains.
We offer three options for removing deep-set stains: in-office Kor Whitening, at-home teeth whitening, and the combination of both for the most effective result.
We also provide take-home whitening kits. These kits consist of a lower-concentration peroxide gel which should be dispensed into special bleaching trays and left on your teeth for a few hours or overnight. Take-home whitening treatment usually takes two to three weeks.
At-home whitening may be preferable to in-office treatment because you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home; just insert the trays before going to sleep or while you are relaxing around the house. At-home results are similarly impressive, and you’ll be able to keep your trays to touch up your teeth before important events.
You may choose to come into our Yardley office for a 90-minute Kor Whitening appointment. Kor Whitening is an amazing process that whitens teeth that are typically difficult to whiten, such as smiles with tetracycline-stained teeth. Even patients who have tried numerous whitening products and procedures in the past can see visible results with Kor Whitening.
In-office whitening is quick and effective; after a 90-minute appointment, your smile will look about eight shades whiter and brighter (on average). We will coat your teeth in a peroxide gel, protecting your gums with a special rubber dam. The gel will need to sit for a period of time (usually one hour, broken up into several intervals). With Kor Whitening, you will use custom trays and special home-whitening solutions combined with one or two in-office whitening sessions.
The main benefits of teeth whitening are very obvious. Dingy, dirty-looking teeth can be embarrassing and cause us to hide our smiles. This can impact us not only socially but professionally. Teeth whitening can increase social confidence and result in clear, positive psychological benefits.
In addition, professional teeth whitening from Bucks County Smiles has many benefits over drugstore solutions. First, our whitening results will be much better than what you can get from store-bought whitening systems. In fact, you need to be careful with commercial whitening gels and strips as they are not custom fit to your teeth and can irritate gum tissue.
Finally, it is also important to get your teeth as close to your desired shade as possible before getting porcelain veneers, dental implants, and any other of our top cosmetic dentistry procedures.
