Brightening Allentown Smiles with Teeth Whitening
A recent employment poll revealed that patients are more likely to get a job or promotion if they have a brilliant smile. Another study revealed that patients with whiter teeth were perceived as younger on first impression. The verdict is in, a beautiful smile makes a difference professionally and personally. At Bradford Young Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we are dedicated to helping patients achieve their smile goals. If your goal is a brilliant smile, we offer professional teeth whitening treatments that brighten smiles up to ten shades.
How Teeth Whitening Works
Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume every day. Aging, certain medications, and genetic predisposition all play a part in staining teeth. Professional teeth whitening treatments may be able to effectively brighten smiles up to ten shades no matter the cause. There are three layers to each tooth: the hard enamel surface, inner dentin layer, and the soft central pulp. Over time, stains are absorbed into the enamel to the dentin layer, discoloring teeth. Whitening gel uses hydrogen or carbamide peroxide to chemically lift the stains from teeth, restoring smiles to brilliant white.
Benefits of At-Home Teeth Whitening
At our Allentown dental practice, we recommend professional at-home whitening. Using custom made application trays, patients apply professional-grade whitening gel to their smiles for a predetermined amount of time every day from the comfort of home. While in-office whitening has become a preferred method, at-home whitening has numerous benefits including:
- Reduced sensitivity – because patients don’t need to undergo the entire stain removal process all at once, teeth are less likely to be sensitive following treatments
- Gradual change – rather than seeing a dramatic shift from dull or yellowed to brilliant white immediately, teeth gradually lighten over about two weeks of daily wear
- Effective and predictable – unlike store bought whitening products, professional at-home whitening offers predictably brilliant results up to ten shades lighter
- Comfortable – the process is more comfortable because patients are able to brighten smiles from the comfort of home, with customized trays, and lower doses of whitening gel applied at shorter intervals
