If you are tired of stained and discolored teeth, help is available from your local dentist. For teeth whitening in New Hope, PA, visit us at New Hope Cosmetic and Family Dentistry. Dr. Dawn Rickert will help restore the beauty of your smile.

What Causes Dental Stains?

Dental stains are commonly caused by coffee, tea, tobacco, or red wine. They can also be caused by certain medications or simply genetics. Some foods and beverages contain pigments that stick to the surface of your teeth. This means that even if you brush your teeth immediately after eating these foods and beverages, it's likely they'll still remain on your teeth.

Once stained, teeth can appear yellow or brownish in color. The shade of the discoloration depends on the individual as well as what they're consuming.

How Can Dental Teeth Whitening Help?

Dental teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that uses hydrogen peroxide gel to remove stains. It is a safe and effective procedure performed at our office in New Hope, PA. Teeth whitening results will be noticeable immediately and the process only takes about an hour. It will not cause damage to the enamel of your teeth and can be done on your lunch break.

As long as you care for your newly whitened teeth by practicing good dental hygiene and limiting or avoiding staining foods, the results will last longer. Your bright smile can last years.

If you want to whiten your teeth at home, we will provide you with a custom tray filled with whitening gel which you will place over your teeth for an hour at a time.
