When arriving for your appointment, Dr. Kandov will first place a guard around your lips and gums to prevent the bleaching solution from irritating these soft tissues. Once it is firmly in place, she will begin to apply the special hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth. Once a specialized light is shined onto your teeth, it will mix with the bleaching gel and penetrate the enamel, breaking up any stain molecules.
Depending on the desired shade, this process can be applied multiple times in order to achieve the necessary results.

When choosing Dr. Kandov for teeth whitening, you can expect to see results in as little as one hour. Why? Because she offers in-office whitening, making it easy and convenient for patients who want to see a brighter smile in less time.
But just to give you an idea as to how much you can expect to pay for different types of teeth whitening, here are some cost estimates to consider:
It can be tempting to opt for store-bought whitening kits solely because of the price tag. However, it will likely cost you more in the long run because these products often lack the power to eliminate tooth stains. Unfortunately, many individuals end up paying more money for dull results, which can actually damage their smiles.
With in-office teeth whitening in Doylestown, not only is a skilled cosmetic dentist overseeing the process, but the results are evident within just one hour.
Dental insurance is unlikely to cover the cost of teeth whitening simply because it is considered a cosmetic treatment. Because it is an “elective” service, Dr. Kandov offers other ways for patients to pay without having to give up their savings. This is accomplished through:
If you are considering teeth whitening in Doylestown, there’s a good chance you have one or maybe even a few questions. Although this treatment is popular and extremely common, it does require that you understand the steps you’ll need to take to prepare and properly care for your brighter smile. If you would like to learn more, we’ve provided the answers to some of the most common questions asked by our patients over the years. If you don’t see yours listed, please feel free to contact our team.
With a cosmetic dentist in Doylestown like Dr. Kandov, you don’t need to worry about teeth whitening causing any pain. Although it is possible to experience some slight sensitivity following treatment, it will dissipate quickly, unlike over-the-counter products that can make eating and drinking your favorite foods and beverages difficult days and even weeks later.
Should you normally suffer from sensitivity, we do suggest that you inform our team beforehand so that we can make sure to tailor your treatment plan accordingly. Your whitening session may need to be spread out further, and you may need to avoid certain hot and cold foods and beverages for a short amount of time.
There are many drastic differences between professional and store-bought teeth whitening, some of which include:
Unfortunately, dental crowns cannot be whitened because they are artificial. They are not porous like traditional tooth enamel, so the bleaching agent can’t penetrate to remove stains or discoloration. It is also possible that if you try to use teeth whitening to improve the color of your restorations, you might break down the bonding agent used to hold it in place. This can lead to another dental visit to try and reattach your customized restoration.
If you want to make sure your crown properly matches a whiter, brighter smile, you may need to talk to Dr. Kandov about undergoing teeth whitening before receiving a dental crown.
No, teeth whitening is not permanent; however, it is possible that with regular care and maintenance, your results can last several months. The only way to extend the life of your brighter smile is to maintain optimal oral hygiene, stop smoking (if you do), eat healthy foods and cut back on sugars and starches, stop biting your nails and eating ice, and not using your teeth as tools. Also, you’ll want to avoid or limit your consumption of dark-colored foods and beverages that can easily stain your teeth.
