Whitening your teeth is one of the most effective and affordable ways to enhance your smile. With a simple process, you can take years off your appearance and boost your confidence with a brighter smile!

Here are the ins and outs of teeth whitening and how to achieve your own brighter, more beautiful smile.

Professional Teeth Whitening vs. Over-the-Counter (OTC) Products

With so many options available for brightening your smile, it can be overwhelming to choose the best one for you. Before you try any teeth whitening product, here are some things to consider about professional teeth whitening with your West Chester dentist:

  • Your dentist has more potent, and more effective teeth bleaching products, which means less time whitening and more time smiling
  • You'll receive customized teeth whitening from your dentist with trays made with impressions of your teeth for the best results
  • Your dentist ensures your teeth are clean, healthy, and ready for a teeth whitening treatment, which provides excellent results
  • Your dentist can assist you if you have any issues with tooth sensitivity

Whitening your teeth under the supervision of your dentist is always advisable and typically achieves the best results.

How Teeth Whitening in West Chester Works

Dr. Koch offers take-home teeth whitening kits and in-office bleaching treatments at our West Chester dental office.

In-office teeth whitening is quick and effective and can potentially leave your teeth six to ten shades lighter in about 90 minutes. Before applying a high-strength whitening gel, Dr. Koch will put a protective barrier around your gums and soft tissues. Then, we'll finish with a fluoride treatment to eliminate any tooth sensitivity you might experience from the bleaching gel.

For take-home kits, we take impressions of your teeth and use them to create custom-fit teeth whitening trays you can use at home. We'll provide you with the right strength of whitening gel to help you achieve your desired results and show you how to apply it to your whitening trays safely. Most patients achieve their brighter smiles within 10 to 14 days with a take-home teeth whitening kit.
