Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening at Linglestown Family Dental, Harrisburg, PA

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure aimed at lightening the color of teeth and removing stains or discoloration.  It is a popular treatment option for individuals looking to improve the appearance of their smiles.

There are two primary methods for teeth whitening: in-office professional whitening and at-home whitening kits.  In-office whitening involves the application of a concentrated whitening gel by a dentist or dental professional, often in combination with a special light or laser to activate the gel.  This treatment typically provides more immediate and dramatic results.

At-home whitening kits, on the other hand, consist of custom-fitted trays and a milder whitening gel.  The trays are worn by the patient for a specified amount of time each day, gradually lightening the teeth over a period of weeks.

Teeth whitening treatments typically utilize hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide as the active ingredient, which breaks down stains on the tooth enamel and reveals a brighter, whiter smile. It is important to note that teeth whitening is most effective on extrinsic stains caused by factors like food, drinks, and tobacco use. Intrinsic stains caused by factors such as tooth trauma or certain medications may not respond as well to whitening treatments.

While teeth whitening is generally considered safe, it may cause temporary tooth sensitivity or gum irritation.  Consult with Linglestown Family Dental before undergoing any teeth whitening procedure to ensure it is suitable for your dental health and to discuss the best approach for achieving the desired results.  Make an appointment with us today!
