Dentist in Hanover, PA
At Dr. Werleman & Associates, we provide teeth whitening solutions for patients to brighten their smiles. Teeth whitening may be a great option if you who have stained, dull or discolored teeth. The main causes of stained teeth are genetics, antibiotics, tobacco and certain foods. As we age, our teeth darken as well.
Our Hanover dentist will explore different whitening options to achieve your desired results. We will evaluate your smile and ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening.
There are a variety of options when looking to brighten your teeth:
Take Home Teeth Whitening Treatment
We offer custom-fitted whitening trays at our Hanover dental office. With at-home whitening, results can be noticed right away, but it may take up to a month to see full results. We recommend using custom fitted trays for precise application of the whitening agent. This helps to prevent irritation to the soft tissue (gums).
In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment
Our dentist will apply a whitening agent to your teeth over the gums. A shield is placed over the gums to protect the soft tissue. Once applied, a laser light will be directed at the teeth to expedite the process. This method will take 1-2 hours. You will see desired results immediately.
For those needing maintenance, touch ups can be done with professional strength crest white strips. Which can also be attached to the teeth and worn for 30 minutes twice a day for up to 3 weeks.
Our dental team is devoted to helping you achieve and maintain a beautiful and healthy smile. If you are considering teeth whitening, contact our Hanover dentist for a consultation. Dr. Werleman will recommend a method that is best based on your individual needs.
