Do you have naturally yellow teeth? Have you considered professional tooth whitening but are worried about tooth sensitivity? What about dental veneers for a smile makeover? Men and women in this country reportedly spend millions every year on OTC tooth whitening products to bleach away tooth discoloration from red wine, coffee, tea, and simply the aging process. While there are several over-the-counter (OTC) tooth whitening options to choose from, the safest and fastest way to a whiter, brighter, more youthful-looking smile is with a dental professional. At LANCO Dental Care in Lancaster, PA, we offer effective methods to whiten teeth and take your smile to the next level. Read on to learn more about what cosmetic dentistry options can quickly help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

What causes tooth discoloration?

Dental discoloration happens; even adults with good oral hygiene habits at home can struggle with yellow tooth enamel or stains. Intrinsic tooth discoloration is a natural occurrence with age, while extrinsic stains are caused by deposits left behind from smoking, red wine, coffee, or other external factors. When considering tooth whitening at home, most individuals turn to OTC tooth whitening products for a more convenient solution. However, OTC tooth whitening kits generally have a lower hydrogen peroxide concentration, the bleaching component found in brush-on whiteners or whitening strips. Drugstore options are limited on what they can do and how soon they will see results. In the long run, they may end up costing you more money and time to get the results you need.

How to make your teeth white?

At LANCO Dental Care, we can transform your smile, making it more brilliant, balanced, and having a younger-looking cosmetic appeal. From take-home whitening kits to dental veneers, our dental experts can help hide uneven, crooked, chipped, or stained teeth to enhance the overall look of your smile.

1. Professional tooth whitening

We offer poladay professional-strength whitening and Opalescence Go™ treatments that can be easily done from the comfort of your home. Each kit is customized to meet patient goals and needs with prescription whitening strength to brighten discolored or dull tooth enamel while removing stubborn surface stains. During a consultation, our experts will determine which take-home whitening option will work best for you.

2. Porcelain veneers

Veneers are a quick and effective smile makeover option to address various cosmetic flaws, including tooth discoloration. These thin, shell-like tooth restorations cover the front portion of the enamel and offer a natural-looking, vibrant appearance for the smile. Placed within the aesthetic zone of the mouth, or the area that shows when a person smiles, porcelain veneers are often revered as the crown jewel of cosmetic dentistry. In most cases, dental veneers can be completed within two visits to LANCO Dental Care and deliver almost instant smile correction once placed on the teeth.

3. Dental cleaning

Dental cleanings are not only an essential component of keeping your oral health in check but a quick and easy way to enhance your smile. Even if you brush and floss daily, plaque and tartar buildup will naturally occur. Our dental hygienists will remove harmful buildup during a dental cleaning and polish your teeth for a brighter, healthier smile.
