Brighten Your Smile and Boost Your Confidence
There is research to show that 80 percent of Americans would like to have whiter teeth. That’s not surprising. Brilliantly white teeth are certainly noticeable and make a positive impact.

To give you an impressively white smile, the dentists at Mt. Holly Family Dentistry offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening. No matter which method you choose, your smile will look white and healthy!
Teeth Staining and Discoloration
Young children have such bright and happy smiles, and their teeth are white as snow. No wonder teeth like that earned the nickname pearly whites. As the years go by, however, teeth may not be so white.
The foods and beverages we enjoy are largely to blame. That caffeine boost you get from a cup of coffee in the morning may be what you need to get your engine going. But after years and years the chemicals that give coffee its rich, dark color can accumulate on the enamel of your teeth and in micro-cracks. The result is a smile that begins to look yellowed. The same can be said for tea, cola, tomato sauce, berries and chocolate.
Other things that can stain and discolor your teeth include:
- Smoking and chewing tobacco
- Teeth grinding and clenching
- Injury that causes bleeding inside of a tooth
- Some antibiotics, chemotherapy and radiation
- Aging and genetics
In-Office Teeth Whitening
For the most dramatic results in just one appointment, choose in-office teeth whitening in Mt. Holly. First, your teeth are cleaned to remove plaque or tartar that might interfere with the whitening process. Then, a rubber dam is inserted in your mouth to protect your gums, lips and cheeks. Next, bleaching gel is applied to your teeth and in about an hour your smile is several shades whiter!
At Home Teeth Whitening
Alternatively, you can choose our take-home kit. With this, we’ll give you custom-fitted mouth trays made from impressions of your teeth. Fill the trays with the professional strength whitening gel we give you. Wear the trays against your teeth for the recommended time that your dentist suggests. Although full treatment takes about two weeks, you’ll begin to see results right away. Take home whitening is also great for touchups weeks or months after you’ve had an in-office whitening treatment.
To maintain your new smile after teeth whitening, brushing and flossing are even more important, because they help to remove the substances that could stain your teeth again. And don’t forget to schedule professional dental cleanings, too.
