A Brighter, More Youthful Smile with Teeth-Whitening
Your smile is one of your first features to show its age, and teeth stains are the most common way that it does so. Teeth stains can develop gradually due to years of exposure to food and beverages. However, they can be accelerated by things such as tobacco and alcohol use, inadequate dental hygiene, and infrequent visits to your dentist’s office. Fortunately, most patients can experience a brighter, more attractive, and stain-free smile with a simple cosmetic teeth-whitening treatment. For your convenience, we offer two methods of teeth-whitening: an in-office treatment that can be completed during a single visit, and a take-home kit that allows you to apply the whitening gel on your own time.
Your Choice of Teeth-Whitening Options
- Take-Home Teeth-Whitening: Teeth stains can occur naturally, and therefore, we believe that erasing them shouldn’t take a substantial amount of time from your schedule. For many of our patients, we recommend a take-home whitening kit that consists of custom-designed trays and a supply of professional-strength whitening gel. By wearing the trays and gel for about an hour or two each day, you can significantly brighten your smile in as little as two weeks, all from the comfort of your own home.
- KöR Deep Bleaching: For patients who exhibit particularly stubborn teeth stains, such as those caused by certain medications (i.e., tetracycline), we may recommend KöR deep bleaching. The procedure combines a fast and effective in-office treatment with a customized take-home kit, a dual treatment that offers amazing results for stains that may not otherwise be erased with regular teeth-whitening.
