First impressions are crucial, whether they are in the context of a date, a job interview, or meeting a stranger at the bar, and a dazzling smile can help create a great impression on anyone you meet! Here at Dr. Ernest Fontaine's office in Harrisburg, PA, we understand the importance of a beautiful smile, which is why we provide patients with professional teeth whitening.

The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening:

Teeth whitening procedures restore smiles by eliminating stains, dull appearance, and/or discolored teeth. Stains and yellowing can be a result of:

  • Age, for the white protective enamel generally wears down overtime to expose the yellow dentin
  • Dietary decisions, for drinking too much coffee/tea and eating darkly pigmented foods such as curry can stain teeth
  • Poor oral hygiene, such as neglecting to brush, floss, use fluoride-containing products, or visit your dentist for professional cleanings can all cause stains to set in

Over-the-Counter Products Vs. Professional Whitening Services

There are whitening toothpastes available at stores, but these toothpastes provide minimal results and consist of harsh substances that can cause damage to enamel.

Fortunately, your Harrisburg dentist also provides professional teeth whitening. This is a safe and effective procedure that may last as long as five years, and, best of all, it's quick. The dentist uses a retractor that prevents soft tissue, gums, and lips from coming into contact with the teeth whitening agents being used. Unlike OTC products, professional whitening is comfortable, and provides dramatic results—even up to eight shades brighter!
