Your Smile Should Shine Bright

Could your smile be brighter? If you’re not happy with the discoloration of your enamel in recent years, tooth whitening is an easy and affordable way to improve your effort. At Lasting Smiles of Bethlehem, cosmetic dentist Dr. Patel and our dental team can achieve the smile of your dreams.

Professional teeth whitening from our Bethlehem office is far more effective than drugstore whitening kits. Read on to learn more about why professional teeth whitening can achieve your smile dreams rather than from over-the-counter whitening products.

What Is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is a safe and effective solution designed to brighten your smile. Our teeth whitening kits involve high-grade, safe bleaching gel that penetrates enamel for deep stain removal. With our non-invasive treatment, we can remove the years of stubborn stain and discoloration, giving you a brand new look.

We invite you to come in and visit us at our Bethlehem office — but first, feel free to view our cosmetic dentistry before and after photos to help you see the amazing results other patients have achieved with our professional whitening system. Our team would be happy to help you find a solution to discoloration and bring your smile up to several shades brighter.


Cons of Over-the-Counter Products

You may have seen over-the-counter teeth whitening products in your local grocery store or drugstore and may have been tempted to buy them since they’re cheap. However, those products don’t work as well since they’re:

  • Mass-produced
  • Not tailored to individual characteristics
  • Contain a low percentage of whitening ingredients as set by law

What these products don’t put on the label is that the same abrasive ingredients that claim to remove stains can actually remove precious enamel. By choosing professional teeth whitening, your results with our professional take-home kit will be much more noticeable and safer when supervised by a professional.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

There are many benefits of receiving professional teeth whitening at our Bethlehem office, including:

  • Guaranteed results
  • Quick and easy treatment
  • Minimal tooth sensitivity
  • Safe and comfortable process
  • A boost in self-confidence

Teeth Whitening Process

During your appointment with Dr. Patel, he’ll speak to you about how shiny you want your smile to look. We’re dedicated to achieving every patient’s smile goals so every patient has their own treatment plan. Once he crafted your treatment plan, Dr. Patel will provide you with:

  • Custom teeth whitening trays
  • Instructions on how to apply the gel
  • How long to wear the trays
  • How often to perform the treatment

For optimal effectiveness, you’ll need to follow the instructions. We recommend that you complete your teeth whitening regimen before pursuing any cosmetic dentistry smile improvements because the whitening gel won’t work on dental restorations like dental crowns and tooth-colored fillings. If you have already done your dental restorations, inform Dr. Patel during your appointment, he’ll be able to assist you.

    High quality, Always professional and smiling
    Again highly professional, friendly and nice he makes me feel like family.

    Scott Kaas

    I very highly recommend Lasting Smiles! Everyone there is so friendly, professional and really knows their job whether it is with insurance, routine cleaning, or any kind of dental work. My appointments are always on time and that is very rare these days.

    Charissa West

    There is a reason this is one of the few top rated dentists in our area. I had to switch because of my insurance, so I read reviews for all the dentists in our area that participate with my insurance. There were only two that had a near perfect rating. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. The exam and the cleaning were the most thorough I’ve ever had. The office was neat and clean with warm and comfortable decor. The two ladies at the front desk were so nice and welcoming and Linda was the friendliest and best hygienist I’ve had in my 38 years of going to various dentists around the country.

    Lauren M.

    Excellent Visit with Dr. Sulzbach and with Linda for my hygiene appointment. Very professional and friendly office. Definitely would recommend this office for your dental needs.
