Teeth Whitening Williamsport, PA

Teeth WhiteningAn Overview

Teeth whitening can be a quick, easy and economical way to make over your smile and erase years of tooth stains for a more youthful look. Dr. Kim offers professional teeth whitening that can provide results that are safer, longer lasting and more consistent when compared to over the counter options.

Dr. Kim will meet with you first to evaluate your overall dental health and discuss your cosmetic goals before your teeth whitening treatment. This is an important step, providing the opportunity to ensure that your tooth stains or discoloration will respond to a whitening treatment and that your teeth are clean and healthy for the best possible result.

For patients who have stains from medications, medical conditions or genetics that may not respond to a teeth whitening treatment, Dr. Kim may recommend alternatives for whitening your smile that can also provide permanent results. Alternative cosmetic dentistry treatments can include tooth bonding, dental veneers or dental crowns.

Teeth Whitening What to Expect

Dr. Kim will take impressions to create custom fit bleaching trays for a personalized take home teeth whitening kit. These trays will fit over your teeth like a mouthguard and will minimize gum irritation while delivering a consistent layer of bleaching agent to the teeth.

Typically, the bleaching trays are worn for a specified period of time daily for a couple of weeks and the results will be gradual.
