COVID-19 Update


In our best effort to help contain the spread of COVID-19 and to protect our team and community, we will be temporarily closing the office until May 26th. Of course, that date is subject to change given the circumstances. Dr. Cary and Dr. Jonathan will make themselves available in the event of a dental emergency. While dental emergencies are considered subjective, things that are not subjective are pain and swelling- so if you are experiencing that, please let us know ASAP. If you are unsure if you need to be seen, please contact our office at 215-886-8866 for instructions to speak to one of the doctors who can help triage your situation. We are also available for video consults via the Dentulu App. While the temporary closing of our office is inconvenient and frustrating, our ultimate goal is the safety of our patients, team and community. We have always put our patients first, and this is, once again, our way of demonstrating that. Be safe and take care of one another, we're in this together!

Teeth whitening

teeth whitening in Abington, PATeeth whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.

The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco.

Food particles are naturally attracted to a tooth's enamel by a certain protein. Products like coffee and tea, berries and soy sauce are notorious for staining teeth. Over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from food and other substances.

One type of stain—caused by traumatic injuries, medications and fluorosis—actually begins inside the tooth; brushing and flossing don’t help. Another type of stain—one that can be more easily attacked by brushing, flossing and rinsing—is caused by external factors such as foods.

More and more people today are choosing tooth-whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging and abuse from food and tobacco stains.

Some commercially available "whitening toothpastes" can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter. However, many of these products have abrasive substances that can actually wear away your tooth's enamel.

Whitening agents actually change the color of your teeth, but only are effective on certain types of stains. For example, bleaching agents have a difficult time removing brownish or grayish stains. These products also are not as effective on pitted or badly discolored teeth, or on restorations such as crowns, bridges, bonding and tooth-colored fillings (porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be more appropriate in this case).

Professional whitening performed by our office is considered to be the most effective and safest method; done properly, tooth whitening can last as long as five years. Over-the-counter whitening systems are somewhat effective as long as they are monitored and directions followed closely.
