Are you one of the many Pocono residents looking for fast and effective teeth whitening? If so, you aren't alone. Many people would love to have a brilliant white smile. Unfortunately, however, many of them are going about it the wrong way.

While over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments may seem cheap and easy at first, the truth is that they aren't very effective, they often take weeks to show results, they can't treat all types of stains, and they can even damage your teeth, making them more likely to stain again in the future! This is why you need to visit Dr. Wert in Pocono for professional teeth whitening.

Unlike over-the-counter solutions, professional teeth whitening by Dr. Wert in Pocono is safe, fact and effective. The process generally takes only about an hour, and many of our patients experience whitening of between three and eight shades!

Professional teeth whitening works so effectively because it uses a highly concentrated bleaching gel that's not available in stores. Plus, the treatment can be custom-tailored to your exact dental needs, including the type of staining that you have and the amount of lightening that you hope to achieve.

Here's how the process works: At your teeth whitening appointment, the dentist will cover your gums and tooth-root surfaces so only your teeth are exposed. A retractor will hold your lips and cheeks away from the area, and the dentist will apply a strong hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth. Then, you get to relax for an hour while the whitening solution does its magic! As soon as the procedure is done, you will be able to immediately see the results.

If you're ready to say goodbye to those dull, dingy or discolored teeth, don't waste your time with an over-the-counter teeth whitening treatment that will harm your smile more than help. Visit Dr. Wert in Pocono for teeth whitening that is fast, safe and effective instead. Call and schedule an appointment today!
