Professional teeth whitening can quickly and effectively lighten your teeth to a brilliant sheen. For many, a brighter smile means improved self-confidence and greater enthusiasm for living life to its fullest.
Why do teeth change color?
There are several causes of tooth discoloration, including food and drinks like coffee, tea, wine and tobacco. Medications and disease can also cause discoloration, and your teeth naturally darken with age.
How does Teeth Whitening work?
Teeth whitening is a simple process. Whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
The first professional option is commonly referred to as in-office whitening. This procedure is performed in a dental office. During an appointment, your dental professional will apply a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The entire office visit generally takes about 90 minutes and you will be able to see results immediately.
The KöR Whitening System
As part of our continuous effort to deliver the finest care possible, we have introduced the KöR Teeth Whitening System. While KöR Whitening has been an industry leader since 2007, the research behind their methods dates back to the 1970s - and, when you consider the fabulous KöR Whitening results, it's no surprise that decades of work have gone into their product.
How KöR Whitening Works:
The KöR Whitening System begins with whitening your teeth at home every night for a period of two weeks. The first step in this process is a short appointment at our office where we take precise, high-definition molds of your teeth from which the trays will be fabricated. Once your trays are ready, you begin the two-week whitening process at home. We demonstrate this process for you and provide detailed printed and video instructions for you to reference at home. A vital portion of the KöR Whitening System is a two hour in-office whitening appointment that must take place immediately after the two weeks of whitening at home. After this appointment, you have completed your KöR Whitening! Store your custom whitening trays in a safe place - you can use them in the future if you decide to whiten again. We have additional whitening product at our office available for purchase if you decide to whiten again!
The many benefits of KöR Whitening:
KöR delivers more predictable, reliable and dramatic results
Most patients report no pain or sensitivity when using KöR
Safe, fast and user-friendly process
KöR uses custom-made whitening trays that are more effective than ordinary trays because they seal in the whitening product, preventing enzymes in the saliva from breaking it down.
