Teeth Whitening that Works

Teeth whitening treatments have become increasingly popular during the last years. There are several numbers of reason why many are choosing to whiten their teeth. Some of the reasons are because of an upcoming event, a job interview, aging, to boost self-confident, or tooth discoloration. Whatever your reason might be, our dentist will provide you with several treatment options, so visit us to determine which one would be great for you.

This guide will help you understand what to expect from the teeth whitening performed by our dentist.

KöR Whitening System

The KöR whitening system is a teeth whitening kit, that is applied on the teeth and usually left overnight. The KöR whitening kit contains the tray, whitening gel and a teeth desensitizer. Since it is a teeth whitening kit, it can be applied at home while following our dentist’s instructions.

Opalescence

Opalescence is a professional, safe, and effective teeth whitener that offers great results.

Opalescence gels contain an active whitening ingredient (either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide) that penetrates your enamel to get to discolored molecules. Oxygen molecules from the whitening agents react with the discolored molecules in your teeth, breaking the bonds that hold them together. The oxygen molecules spread, whitening the entire tooth. As a result, you are left with a brighter, whiter smile.

Take-Home Trays

Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform at the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth, and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.

These trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs. They can also be used several times to achieve the desired results. Our dentist can further advice on how many times they should be used in your case.

Custom whitening trays are trays that are clear and are usually made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjusts when inserted. A hydrogen peroxide-infused gel is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth.
After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or a cloth and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again. It is not recommended to use them for at least another day, after each application. Our dentist would be happy to further go into detail about the process during your teeth whitening consultation.
