How teeth whitening from your family dentist in Erie can enhance your smileteeth whitening

If you are a tobacco user, you’ve probably noticed your teeth have dark, brown stains. If you are a coffee drinker, you’ve probably noticed your smile is dull. If you are older, you’ve probably noticed your smile has yellowed. It’s time to say goodbye to your dental stains, thanks to teeth whitening! Dr. Rosanne Palermo in Erie, PA wants to introduce you to professional teeth whitening, the high-tech way to enhance your smile.

Whether your stains and discolorations are from tobacco, coffee, tea, or even medications, a teeth whitening treatment can help you achieve a dazzling, white, younger-looking smile once again!

Teeth whitening treatments offer many benefits. When you compare teeth whitening to other cosmetic dental treatments, you will find that a teeth whitening treatment is:

  • Quick, because you can have a beautiful white smile in about an hour
  • Inexpensive, because it costs just a fraction of the price of other cosmetic dental treatments
  • Convenient, because you have two teeth whitening options to choose from

You can choose either:

In-office whitening, which takes about an hour; your teeth are isolated to protect your gums and cheeks. Professional strength whitening gel is applied and enhanced using a high-tech ultraviolet light.

Take-home whitening, which includes a kit containing everything you need to whiten at home. You will receive custom-made trays, and enough whitening gel to achieve and maintain a beautiful, white smile.

Whether you choose in-office or take-home whitening, you can achieve a brilliant smile that is up to 8 shades whiter. You can also maintain your bright smile for up to 5 years! Those results can’t be matched by over-the-counter treatments or products from the shopping mall.

Before you reach for untrustworthy, ineffective over-the-counter whitening products, think about professional teeth whitening! Seek out the expert by calling Dr. Palermo in Erie, PA. Isn’t it time you said goodbye to your dental stains with a professional teeth whitening treatment? Get started on your brilliant smile by calling today!

Your family dentist in Erie, Pennsylvania, Dr. Rosanne Palermo helps patients with both preventive and restorative treatments. Many of cosmetic dentistryher patients need other procedures to help their teeth become more healthy and attractive. Below, she's outlined a few of the other treatments she offers at her dental practice.

Teeth whitening

Perhaps the simplest and most cost-effective way of improving your smile is with a teeth whitening treatment from your Erie family dentist. Unlike kits you purchase over-the-counter, a professional whitening procedure uses high-quality bleaching gel and the process is carefully monitored by trained dental professionals. This ensures your comfort, safety, and satisfaction with the results, which can last well over a year.


When a filling won't do the job, a crown from your Erie family dentist can be instrumental in saving a damaged natural tooth. Crowns protect decayed or broken teeth by covering them up, insulating them from further damage and allowing them to maintain normal function and appearance. Depending on the location of the tooth and your personal preference, crowns can be made from different materials.


Missing teeth need special implements to fill in the gaps they leave behind. Bridges are an excellent way to restore the way you eat and smile. The "bridge" is an artificial tooth which is held in place by two crowns on either side of the gap. The crowns provide stability to keep the bridge in place for many years.

Dental implants

A long lasting and seamless replacement for missing teeth comes from dental implants, which are held in place by a tiny metal post that is placed in the area where your missing tooth once was. The rest of the implant attaches to the post, which eventually becomes part of the jawbone.

Do any of these procedures sound like something you could benefit from? Dr. Rosanne Palermo could help you! Contact our family dental office in Erie, Pennsylvania, to schedule a consultation with her and find out how you can improve your smile today.
