About Home Teeth Whitening
While there is a range of over-the-counter options for teeth whitening, these products may not deliver the results you truly desire for your smile. At Byers Station Dental, we are pleased to provide professional-strength teeth whitening solutions that can be performed in the comfort of your own home at a time most convenient for you. At-home teeth whitening kits from our general dentists are a safe and efficient way to gradually whiten your smile and minimize tooth stains. Our dentists and team customize take-home kits to help each individual achieve their smile results. These kits combine powerful Opalescence® whitening gels with custom mouth trays that make the whitening process more comfortable and precise.

Is Home Whitening Right for You?
Should you wish to refresh the appearance of your smile in the comfort and convenience of your own time, our dentists might recommend professional home teeth whitening. Over time, the teeth can appear dull or have yellow and dark stains that have become ingrained in the enamel over the years. This stain or discoloration may be the result of:
- Tobacco use
- Red wine, tea, coffee, or colas
- Tomato sauce or berries
- Paprika, curry, or other spices
- Certain medications or health conditions
Teeth whitening is only effective at brightening natural tooth enamel. If you have fillings, crowns, or other restorations that show when you smile, you may wish to talk with our dentists about other cosmetic dentistry solutions available at Byers Station Dental.
What Is the Treatment Process?
During your consultation, our dentists will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth and gums, and can then recommend the ideal whitening strength and formulation to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Our team will take impressions of your teeth, which will be used to custom-make your teeth whitening trays. These trays will be fabricated from a smooth, clear material and trimmed to comfortably fit your upper and lower teeth. When your trays are ready, we will have you try them in and provide instructions on how to use your whitening kit at home. Instructions on cleaning and caring for your trays will also be discussed at that time.
Maintaining Your Results
In general, whitening results are dependent on the strength of the whitening gel, your initial tooth color, and your consistency with using your kit. Once you attain your desired shade, you can stop at-home treatments. For result maintenance, it is important to follow an excellent oral hygiene routine and minimize or avoid tobacco products and foods or drinks that may stain your teeth. When you visit our Chester Springs, PA team for routine dental cleanings, we will polish any surface stains to help keep your smile bright. You may also obtain additional whitening gel from our practice to touch up your results over the course of time.
Does Insurance Cover Teeth Whitening?
At-home teeth whitening is an aesthetic treatment and is typically not covered by dental insurance. However, we still want to help you get the smile results you desire. At your appointment, our business team will discuss your treatment costs and explain the convenient payment options available at Byers Station Dental.
