No matter how on-top of your oral hygiene you are, teeth become discolored over time due to aging, certain foods, excessive fluoride, and tooth decay. To help fight this inevitable problem, our cosmetic and restorative dentists, Drs. Ernest and Rocco Mantini offer in-office teeth whitening in Davidsville and Johnstown to brighten your smile and your entire facial appearance.
What Are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?
Having your teeth whitened offers many advantages, including:
- Reduces the appearance of stains and discoloration
- A brighter, more refreshed-looking smile
- Non-invasive treatment
- Customizable for each patient’s unique needs
- Compatible with other dental treatments
Choosing to have your teeth professionally whitened instead of store-bought whitening strips allows for more accurate, long-term results. In addition, whitening treatments from our Davidsville dental office can lighten or whiten your teeth by several shades and significantly rejuvenate the appearance of your smile!
Am I a Candidate for In-Office Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is an ideal and exciting option for almost anyone interested in achieving a brighter smile in a short time. Before your teeth whitening treatment, an experienced member of our team at Ernest J. Mantini, DMD & Rocco M. Mantini, DMD, will ensure your teeth are healthy enough for the treatment and discuss your concerns, goals, and treatment options. Teeth whitening gives you immediate, dramatic results even if you have dental restorations, like crowns or bridges. Unlike over-the-counter treatments, your teeth whitening treatment at Ernest J. Mantini, DMD & Rocco M. Mantini, DMD will be customized, so you’ll get the desired results.
Not everyone will get the same results, even with the most advanced whitening techniques. For example, Brown, yellow, and orange stains can typically be bleached. In contrast, gray and tetracycline stains are typically more challenging to treat.
Dr. Mantini will closely evaluate the condition of your teeth and make recommendations accordingly. Even if we determine that teeth whitening isn’t the best option for you, we can still help you achieve a stunning, whiter smile with other dental options, such as dental bonding and porcelain veneers.
Why You Should Avoid Over-the-Counter Whitening Trays
You may see many at-home teeth whitening kits when you visit your local pharmacy. Unfortunately, most of these whitening kits expose your gums to unsafe levels of bleaching agents, which can irritate your gums. These kits may also cause irremediable damage to your tooth enamel and potentially even the pulp chamber within your teeth.
Kinds of toothpaste marketed as tooth whitening products aren’t typically safe because of the abrasive substances and chemicals used to remove stains. Also, if you brush too roughly, you could potentially remove the enamel from the surface of your teeth, causing further issues.
Many treatment patients are under the false impression that these products are safe because they are offered over the counter, but this isn’t the case. Instead, research has proven that these products are more likely to cause damage to the gums, enamel, tooth pulp, and other parts of the mouth.
