How Do Teeth Become Discolored?
Tooth discoloration can happen naturally, be a side-effect of certain medications, or be accelerated due to bad oral habits. If you notice that your teeth are developing a brown or yellow-ish tint, it could be caused by:
- Consuming foods and beverages that are high in tannins and have rich colors, like red wine.
- Poor oral hygiene.
- Using tobacco products.
- Taking certain medications, such as tetracycline antibiotics.
Some teeth develop surface stains that can easily be removed, but for the tougher, deep stains caused by the issues above, professional, concentrated treatment may be necessary.
The In-Office Teeth Whitening Process
In-practice teeth whitening in Doylestown is a fast process that can typically be completed within an hour. We’ll protect your gums and oral tissues from coming into contact with the whitening gel by placing a barrier. Once we administer the gel onto the teeth, we’ll allow it to break apart the stains and wipe it off, re-administering it several times until we’re able to achieve your desired results. Once the process is over, you’ll be able to leave our practice with a noticeably brighter and beautiful smile.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
Many patients try over-the-counter teeth whitening kits before they look into professional teeth whitening because they promise fast and cost-effective results. However, this is rarely the case. These products often contain abrasive materials that can cause enamel erosion and tooth sensitivity. Some benefits that you’ll be able to enjoy from getting treatment from a professional include:
- The use of safe and tested ingredients.
- Fast results.
- Long-lasting results.
- The ability to tackle tough stains.

In-Practice Teeth Whitening FAQs
If you’re ready for fast, safe, and dramatic teeth whitening results, it’s time to visit your Doylestown dentist! During your consultation, we’ll give you all the information you need for your custom cosmetic treatment. However, in the meantime, we invite you to go through the following common questions to learn more about in-practice teeth whitening in Doylestown.
Does Teeth Whitening Work for Everyone?
Professional teeth whitening treatments are a safe, reliable way to take years of stains off your smile in as little as an hour. Unfortunately, there are a few cases that can’t be addressed with this popular service. If your tooth discoloration stems from an injury to the inside of your tooth, overexposure to fluoride during childhood, or the use of specific antibiotics, teeth whitening may not be the best option for you. We’ll carefully inspect your teeth and review your health to determine if you may benefit more from dental bonding or porcelain veneers.
Will My Teeth Be Sensitive After Teeth Whitening?
Many people who’ve tried over-the-counter teeth whitening products find that many of them can cause gum irritation and tooth sensitivity while only achieving subpar results. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about any of these annoyances with a professional teeth whitening treatment! A completely customized treatment applied by your highly trained Doylestown cosmetic dentist ensures that your whitening experience is as comfortable as possible! We’ll also ensure that you don’t have any issues like tooth decay or gum disease that may make your treatment uncomfortable during your initial consultation. While its normal to experience some slight dental sensitivity directly after your treatment, any discomfort should be mild, easily managed, and short-lived.
How Long Do Teeth Whitening Results Last?
How long your smile remains sparkling will depend largely on how well you care for it! Some bad habits can quickly discolor your teeth again, while a few healthy choices can help keep your teeth bright for a decade or more to come! After having your teeth whitening, remember to:
- Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day.
- Floss daily and regularly rinse with antiseptic, alcohol-free mouthwash.
- Drink plenty of water while enjoying dark-colored foods and drinks.
- Quit chewing or smoking tobacco.
- Visit your dentist twice a year for checkups and cleanings.
Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Teeth Whitening?
Unfortunately, most dental insurance policies don’t cover the cost of cosmetic services like teeth whitening. Thankfully, teeth whitening treatments are a cost-effective way to dramatically improve your smile! During your consultation, we’ll be happy to give you a personalized estimate for your treatment and go over your options for making it as affordable as possible. We’re proud to offer third-party financing options through CareCredit. There are a variety of plans that can help break down the cost of your teeth whitening into smaller payments that easily fit into your monthly budget.
