One of the quickest ways to enjoy an instant smile makeover is with professional teeth whitening. Dr. Jason Petkevis offers teeth whitening in his Exton, PA area dentist office. You can choose from in-office treatment, at-home treatment, or a combination of the two. We only use carefully selected professional tooth whitening brands that yield optimal results with minimal sensitivity to teeth and gums. Dr. Petkevis may suggest teeth whitening combined with other restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures for a total smile makeover.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Some of our patients prefer the convenience of teeth whitening kits to use at home. Our at-home professional whitening system includes a custom-fit bleaching tray and special bleaching gel. Dr. Petkevis will create custom bleaching trays from your dental impressions. These trays will fit perfectly against your teeth for minimal sensitivity and even whitening of the teeth. At-home teeth whitening treatment takes place over a number of weeks where the trays are worn either during the day or overnight, depending on the patient, for a set amount of time. Patients will enjoy gradual and natural-looking results.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Dr. Petkevis offers professional in-office teeth whitening for an instant boost to your smile. Our in-office teeth whitening systems can give you a brighter, whiter smile without the wait. Using high-quality professional whitening gels for reduced sensitivity, it can address most tooth stains for a whiter smile in about an hour or less. Professional whitening is customized by the dentist to meet your needs and goals. A thorough dental exam is recommended to determine if a professional teeth whitening treatment will address your tooth staining and discoloration.
The long-term results of the whitening will depend on the individual. Regular professional care and use of the touch-up whitening gel will help maintain the results indefinitely. To keep your new, white smile looking good for as long as possible, we recommend avoiding lifestyle habits known to stain and darken the teeth:
- Smoking or tobacco use
- Dark foods and beverages such as red wine
- Coffee and tea
Other Whitening Options
Dr. Petkevis will examine your teeth and discuss your oral health and lifestyle habits at your consultation at his Exton, PA area dentist office. He will determine if these teeth whitening treatments are best for you and if they will meet your needs and goals. Teeth begin to darken from external factors like drinking coffee and wine or from tobacco use. They can also darken due to internal factors such as damage or certain medications and this type of stain may not respond to teeth whitening. For patients with this issue, Dr. Petkevis may suggest other cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental crowns or porcelain veneers.
