Professional Teeth Whitening to Enhance Your Smile
Who is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Tooth discoloration can occur for a variety of different reasons. Here are some of the most common causes:
- Pigmented foods and drinks
- Tobacco use
- Sugary and acidic foods
- Poor oral hygiene
- Certain medications
Some causes of tooth discoloration are easily prevented, but others are completely out of your control. This is because there are two different types of discoloration: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the tooth and are caused by foods, drinks, and tobacco products. This is the type of discoloration that can usually be lifted with professional whitening treatments. On the other hand, intrinsic stains can occur from certain medications, so this will need to be discussed with your doctor.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
We offer two different types of teeth whitening so you can brighten up your smile however you see fit:
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Some patients prefer to whiten their smile at a more gradual pace, or they simply don’t have the time in their busy schedule to undergo an in-office procedure. In these circumstances, a take-home kit is your best option. These kits come with custom-made oral trays and professional-strength whitening gel. The patient wears both together for a certain amount of time each day, and within four to six weeks, you should see beautiful improvements.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
Looking for quicker results? Maybe you have a wedding coming up, or a big party that you’d like to look your very best for. Our KOR in-office procedure dramatically whitens teeth in record time. The process only takes a single appointment, and you’ll be able to leave the same day with a much brighter smile that’s ready to be shown off.
Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile
