Teeth Whitening treatments have been used for centuries, millenia even. But we have since come a long way from the Ancient Egyptians using a paste made from wine vinegar and pumice stone.
Teeth whitening is the most common dental procedure done in the United States. The types of teeth whitening treatments that we are familiar with today were developed in the 1980s and quickly became popular. Whitening treatments have continued to become safer, easier, quicker, cheaper and more effective.
While you can purchase at-home teeth whitening treatments at pretty much any pharmacy or grocery store in the United States, that doesn’t mean you should.
Leave the teeth whitening to the teeth experts – your dentist. Our dentists at Dentistry at 1818 Market Street are experts in teeth whitening.
At Dentistry at 1818 Market Street we offer several different types of teeth whitening treatments. So you can choose whichever method is best for your situation.
You can get Zoom teeth whitening done in our office. Get it done during an extended lunch break! The total appointment time is under two hours. Instead of staying after work for happy hour, stop by Dentistry at 1818 Market Street for a teeth whitening treatment. One Zoom whitening session takes just over an hour. And you’ll see immediate results. Make an appointment in our Center City dentist office to see if you’re a good candidate for Zoom teeth whitening.
We also offer take-home teeth whitening systems. You can choose to wear whitening trays on your teeth either during the day or at night. We’ll teach you how to properly use the whitening trays during your office visit.
Many of our patients choose to use both the in-office and at-home teeth whitening methods. After you get an initial in-office whitening treatment, you can maintain your beautiful results with the at-home whitening trays.
Many people use teeth whitening toothpaste and mouth rinses in an effort to remove stains from teeth.
There are many kinds of products available for sale “over the counter” that claim to whiten or lighten teeth or remove stains. While these products can work for some people, they usually only lighten the teeth by just one shade. The professional Zoom whitening products that we use at Dentistry at 1818 Market Street have shown to lighten teeth up to 9 shades lighter.
To be sure you get the best results, stay away from over-the-counter teeth whitening. Schedule a consultation with Dentistry at 1818 Market Street to see if a teeth whitening treatment is a good option for you. Not everyone is an ideal candidate for teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening only works on natural teeth. If you already have veneers, dentures or bonding, teeth whitening is probably not the best option for you. We’re a full-service dental office at Dentistry at 1818 Market Street, so even if teeth whitening is not recommended for you, we will be able to help you achieve a smile you will be happy about.
