With so many teeth whitening options available—both over-the-counter and professional—it can be difficult to determine which option is best for your teeth. While over the counter tray whitening systems can be effective, patients typically prefer whitening options provided by a dentist. That’s because professional whitening involves careful preparation and the use of high-quality products that yield results almost immediately.
Teeth typically become discolored through extrinsic factors like coffee, wine, or smoking—or through intrinsic factors like medications, or excessive fluoride use. Although some people experience discoloration simply due to aging.
Our office provides two different options for teeth whitening
- Opalescence: Using high-concentrated peroxide gel and custom made trays, this whitening technique offers brighter, whiter teeth, with lasting results. A typical treatment lasts 7-10 days. Patients can choose to whiten during the day or overnight.
- KöR® Whitening Deep Bleaching: KöR Whitening whitens teeth dramatically, sometimes lightening them 16 shades or more. Although everyone is different, all teeth will have stunning results. After your consultation, you and your dentist will select which level of KöR Whitening is the proper fit for you. We offer a two week take home whitening, and an in office whitening addition. With both options patients wear their KöR- Seal whitening trays for two weeks while sleeping. Those patients who have selected to also do the in office KöR, would then return to the office for one – two simple whitening visits.
