Why does your smile look darker now than it did ten years ago? Your enamel actually absorbs organic matter, changing your tooth color teeth whiteningand how you feel about your smile. Would you like to brighten it safely, quickly and dramatically? Then, come to Hoffmaster Dental in York, PA, for a professional teeth whitening consultation with Dr. Robert Hoffmaster. As his name implies, he's a master at enhancing smile appearance and can help you achieve a great look.

No two smiles are alike

Nor should they be. We are, after all, individuals with smiles that express our unique personalities. In fact, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that people notice your smile before they see your hair color, height, or other physical attributes. That's how important your teeth are to your self-image and confidence.

Unfortunately, your teeth actually trap staining material from:

  • Cigarette smoke and chewing tobacco
  • Dark beverages such as sports drinks, coffee, tea, and colas
  • Dark foods such as soy sauce and curry
  • Accumulated plaque and tartar from neglected oral hygiene
  • Some prescription medications such as antihistamines and antihypertensives

Additionally, your teeth naturally yellow and become dull with age. However, with professional teeth whitening in York you may lift that dark look right out of your smile.

Who can get their teeth whitened?

Teens and adults who have healthy gums, no decay and limited restorations likely are candidates. When you visit Hoffmaster Dental, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums and take some X-rays to be sure all is well. Then, you can choose either in-office or at-home whitening.

How it works

Both methods use concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel. In the office, your dentist protects your gums and lips with a rubber dam and then swabs on the gel. It penetrates your tooth enamel as you relax in the dental chair. When it's rinsed off, teeth are brighter by eight shades of color in just about an hour.

With at-home whitening, you elect to wear custom-made acrylic trays which fit snugly over your teeth. You fill them with the peroxide gel and wear them daily as Dr. Hoffmaster directs. The results are the same as in-office whitening: you're able to say goodbye to those stubborn dental stains.

To keep a whitened smile bright, stop tobacco in all forms, limit dark foods and drinks and brush and floss thoroughly every day. Also, visit Hoffmaster Dental semi-annually for check-ups, cleanings and occasional whitening touch-ups as needed.
