Top Places For Teeth Whitening In Philadelphia

October 9, 2012 7:00 AM

If you’re not confident your pearly whites are as bright as they could be, maybe it’s time to do something about it. There are several teeth whitening procedures available at dental practices around the city. Some offer an in-home process that takes a few weeks to complete, while other procedures are performed in the office and may yield immediate results. Smoking, medication and plain old Father Time all take a toll on our teeth, but these dental professionals are here to help.

Leonard F. Tau, DMD, leads the team of dental professionals at the Pennsylvania Center for Dental Excellence. PCDE recommends the KӧR Whitening Deep Bleaching System. With this system, patients have a mold of their teeth made and then wear the deep-bleaching trays for two weeks at bedtime. Periodic home maintenance may be required to keep that smile dazzling. An in-office supervised treatment process is also available. Prices range from $850 to $1,500 and are dependent upon the level of discoloration, but free consultations are available. PCDE offers an informative website that includes patient education materials, finance options and testimonials.
