Teeth stain during our lifetime due to consumption of a variety of foods and drinks (Coke, spicy food, coffee…). New technology of teeth whitening has enabled dentists to whiten teeth without any change or damage to the tooth structure. Almost all the whitening methods are similar in concept but some are much more effective because of the way the whitening material is delivered to the teeth. The other factor in effectiveness of the method is the concentration of material, which is the reason why over the counter whitening systems usually don t give patients the result they are hoping for. The two main methods of professional whitening are tray whitening and in office whitening. Tray whitening is when a custom tray is made for the patient after an impression is taken, then a supply of whitening gel is given to the patient and he/she will wear the tray for a few hours a day (techniques differ) for a period of time until an acceptable result is achieved. Sensitivity of the teeth is a normal complication of this method of whitening and is almost always transitional. In office whitening on the other hand is the most effective method of whitening. There are several different types of products available. This office uses the KOR Whitening Deep Bleaching System. We chose KOR due to it’s ability to dramatically lighten teeth shades up to 16 shades brighter and can even whiten teeth stained by tetracycline. All bleaching takes a certain degree of maintenance to stay white and we will also provide the means in which to do so. Nothing whitens as beautifully and the process will surely exceed your expectations.
