Teeth Whitening in Philadelphia

Your smile stands among the first few things people will notice about you 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 some cases, you could find that discoloration of your teeth is a result of some medications or bacterial infections.  If you feel embarrassed or uncomfortable with 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 the aid of our teeth whitening procedure.

Teeth whitening is the most common cosmetic dental procedure across the country. Professional teeth whitening is a safer, more comfortable and less aggravating approach to remove those unsightly stains than that of using store-bought kits or strips. If your teeth are discolored, and you feel self-conscious about your smile’s appearance, please contact our office today to speak with Dr. Yurovsky about our teeth whitening options.

Unlike other conventional dentist offices, with the fluorescent lights and well played out elevator music, the treatment rooms at Yurovsky Dental are equipped with serene colors and a modern atmosphere.  Teeth whitening procedures are so relaxing that it is not uncommon for some of our patients to fall asleep.

Our dental office offers the most modern dental technology in the teeth whitening field.  We are proud to offer our patients Zoom! Teeth Whitening procedures to eliminate discoloration on their teeth, so they are able to achieve a brighter, more attractive smile.

More often than not, the 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, can only remove stains found on the surface of your teeth.

Whitening procedures are not always the best solution to all discoloration (e.g. darkening caused by cavities). Similarly, whitening will 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 in order to determine whether you are a good candidate for a teeth whitening procedure.  Some cases which are not appropriate for whitening procedures can instead be effectively treated with restorative options.

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

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