Is your once brilliant smile not as radiant as before? Do you have a dingy, yellow, and stained grin? If you answer “yes” to these questions, professional teeth whitening is your best bet. It’s natural for our teeth to get discolored over time. Whether natural aging, coffee, smoking cigarettes, or wine is the culprit, eliminating stains in your teeth could go a long toward giving your smile the radiance it once had.

Here at New Hope Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in New Hope, PA, we offer take-home whitening kits and in-office bleaching, under the guidance of Dr. Dawn Rickert. The best option for you will depend on various factors, including the kinds of stains you have and how deeply discolored your teeth are.

Teeth Whitening at Home

OTC teeth whitening might work for some, but using a teeth whitening kit that your dentist prescribed would definitely work better and be much safer for your mouth. Take-home whitening kits from dentists can only be sold through licensed dentists, which means that you can be confident the product’s bleach concentration and quality will fit your specific whitening requirements.

Likewise, they come with whitening trays that are custom-made for you to ensure more accurate results and a more comfortable at-home whitening experience. Just make sure to follow your dentist’s directions and you’ll have no issues whitening your smile at home.

Teeth Whitening in The Dentist’s Office

If you’re after faster and whiter results, in-office bleaching is the way to go. This procedure can give you an exceptionally brilliant smile in just one visit to your dentist in New Hope, PA. Using special bleach and special light, you can go out of the office with a brighter and whiter smile in just under an hour. Stringent safety measures will be taken to make certain that your in-office bleaching treatment is as comfortable as possible.

Safety First

These two teeth whitening options will garner faster and better results as well as safeguard your oral tissues and teeth better than OTC teeth whitening kits. Likewise, undergoing a comprehensive oral examination prior to whitening is a vital step to help ensure that your stains aren’t due to a dental issue, like tooth decay, that requires treatment.
