Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
There are different methods to whiten teeth depending on the specific situation. The most effective and predictable system is a tray whitening system. This tray whitening system is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we make custom whitening trays that you use to apply a prescribed whitening gel over a period of time ranging from a few days to a few weeks in most cases. Most patients will have very good results with this easy and affordable system.
Another option is to have an in-office whitening procedure sometimes referred to as "power bleaching". This can also be very effective but does require more time in the dental office and consequently the cost is higher. The treatment is accomplished in 1-2 appointments and can be combined with a tray system when needed. Results will vary depending on the original color of the teeth.
Our office also offers the Kor Whitening system which is the most advanced whitening system on the market at this time. This system is very effective even for the most challenging whitening cases, such as very dark teeth or tetracycline staining. This system uses a combination of in-office and tray whitening for achieving amazing results even in teeth that have previously not responded to other whitening methods.
