Teeth Whitening in Philadelphia

Your smile is one of the first things people notice when you enter a room.  Over time, mineral exposure overtakes a person’s teeth, causing a darker hue to emerge onto the teeth’s appearance.  Some food, drinks, and tobacco products also help in creating those unattractive yellowish-brownish stains.  In certain cases, you may find that discoloration to your teeth is due to some medications or bacterial infections.  If you find that you are embarrassed or uncomfortable about the coloration of your teeth, come to The Center City Dental Office of Dr. Renee Yurovsky to help you reach your desired beautiful smile with our teeth whitening procedure.

Our dental office offers the most modern dental technology in the teeth whitening area.  We are proud to offer our patients Zoom! Teeth Whitening procedures to eliminate discoloration on their teeth, and get them a brighter, more attractive smile.

More often than not, stains have seeped down below the outermost layer of the tooth.  Zoom! Whitening uses a light treatment to correctly remove the deeply rooted stains in order to restore your teeth to their natural white color.  Over-the-counter products, such as whitening toothpastes, remove only stains found on the surface of your teeth.

Whitening procedures are not always the correct solution to all discoloration (e.g. darkening caused by cavities). Similarly, whitening does not work on all stains.  When you come into our dental office for your appointment, Dr. Yurovsky will make a quick examination of your teeth to see if you are a good candidate for a teeth whitening procedure.  Some cases that are not appropriate for whitening procedures can be effectively treated with restorative options.

 

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

Tooth discoloration can be caused by genetics and aging, as well as by certain types of medication, smoking, certain foods and beverages, poor oral hygiene, or a combination of several factors.
