Interested in Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth. Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
Our teeth whitening systems
The most common teeth whitening system we use in our practice is KoR whitening. KoR is a refrigerated bleaching system that is highly successful. We keep the bleach refrigerated at all times so bleach does not lose pigmentation. There are different types of KoR cases; KoR Home and Max, KoR Ultra and KoR Ultra-T. KoR is our most effective bleaching method. We do offer another treatment that is a more simplistic method that does not involve the lab where we would be able to take same day impressions with our trained staff making in-office bleach trays
