Professional Teeth Whitening Advantages

Philadelphia, Main Line, and Ardmore, Pennsylvania Cosmetic Dentistry

Dr. Lindsey Marshall understands how important bright, white, photogenic teeth are to her Philadelphia patients. That’s why she’s proud to offer teeth whitening services as part of her cosmetic dentistry practice. Being able to show your teeth in a wide, enthusiastic smile is important.

If you’re considering teeth whitening, you might be intrigued by at-home, over-the-counter treatments you can buy at many drug stores. While the appeal of these products is understandable, the cheap, convenient whitening they advertise often proves elusive. For the safe, thorough teeth whitening you deserve, your best option remains Zoom! teeth whitening at our office.

If you live in the Philadelphia area and you’re considering teeth whitening, please call cosmetic dentist Lindsey Marshall, DMD, today at (610) 649-0696.


The at-home, over-the-counter teeth whitening products you can find at drug stores and grocery stores are mass produced. They’re designed to fit as many sets of teeth as possible in order to make as much money as possible for the manufacturer.

However, when it comes to dental products, one size does not fit all. Teeth whitening products designed for everybody might not be right for you. If the trays and strips you buy at the store aren’t good fits for your teeth, the result will likely be inconsistent whitening. The fronts of some teeth might be sufficiently whitened, while other teeth are left completely untouched.

On the other hand, professional teeth whitening at the cosmetic dentistry office of Dr. Marshall offers you a consistent, thorough whitening. Over the course of about an hour we will carefully apply a whitening agent to the surface of every tooth. Then, we use a special light to activate this agent.


Over-the-counter tooth whitening products don’t present serious health risks. However, because the trays and strips are not designed specifically for your teeth there is the potential for an unpleasant experience.

These mass-produced whitening trays can irritate your gums, cheeks and tongue. Again, this is the result of a product that is not specifically designed for you.

Dr. Marshall will protect your lips and gums with a special gel before you undergo tooth whitening. The result of your time at our office will be a safer, more effective treatment than you will receive from over-the-counter products.

For particularly stubborn stains, Dr. Marshall can provide you with take home kits. She’ll also answer any questions about tooth whitening you might have.

If you live in the Philadelphia area and you want a professional tooth whitening experience, please contact Lindsey Marshall, DMD today at (610) 649-0696.
