One of the most common cosmetic dental concerns that patients have with their smiles’ appearance is the development of stains on their teeth’s surfaces. Known as extrinsic stains because they develop on the outside of your semi-translucent enamel, common teeth stains can often be eliminated with the help of professional-strength teeth-whitening. For your convenience, we offer a variety of applications designed to fit unobtrusively into your schedule.
Choosing the Right Application
Sometimes, you might need your teeth brightened in a hurry. If so, then we might suggest in-office teeth-whitening treatment, which can be completed in just a single appointment that usually lasts just over an hour. During your visit, we’ll apply the safe but potent bleaching gel to the surfaces of your tooth enamel, then stimulate it with the help of a special light to activate the gel’s stain-removing properties.
If you prefer to apply your teeth-whitening treatment at home, then we can custom-design a set of trays that allow you to do so comfortably, safely, and with optimal results. You can wear your whitening trays and gel at any time of the day you choose, usually for one-two hours at a time. After about 10 days, the gel will have removed the staining deposits from your teeth surfaces and brightened your smile by up to several shades.
Enhanced KöR teeth-whitening
For patients with more stubborn teeth stains, we can also recommend our more enhanced KöR teeth-whitening system, which combines a single in-office treatment with a highly effective, custom-designed take-home kit. KöR whitening is an especially powerful bleaching system, and before recommending it, we'll perform a comprehensive examination and consult with you personally to ensure it's the right option.
