What is Teeth Whitening?

Discoloration can be the result of a combination of things:

  • Genetics
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Accidents
  • Medication
  • The effects of aging
  • Smoking
  • Certain foods
Whitening techniques will only work for staining caused by some medications if the discoloration is very mild. Teeth that are discolored because of medication or excessive fluoride are not good candidates for the whitening procedure. Veneers are the best solution for more severe discoloration cases. Once you reach our office, our dentist will let you know the best solution for you.

We can change all this and give you a "Movie Star" smile within one hour.

First, we check the teeth for cavities as the whitening gel can cause serious damage if it leaks into these areas. If cavities are found, they must be repaired before tooth whitening takes place. If there are no cavities, we will begin the whitening process. The process is quick, easy, and comfortable. Under the dentists' supervision, our whitening treatments are completely safe and will not harm teeth or gums.

The process is painless, takes 2 weeks, and involves both whitening at home as well as a 90 minute in-office procedure.
  • Beautiful, healthy and natural looking white result
  • Effective even on tetracycline-stained (dark) teeth
  • Low to no sensitivity
  • Comfortable, easy process
  • No need to give up coffee, tea, or red wine
  • Permanent results – white teeth for your lifetime!
  • Entirely safe for teeth and gums
  • Perfect for ages 14 - 90
The advantage of using dentist-supervised bleaching is that teeth can be properly assessed to have the correct chemical concentration, correct method and length of treatment and to be sure the patient is even suitable to have their teeth whitened.

When you visit our dental office, we can review all of your options with you and create a treatment plan that will give you the brightest and most beautiful smile. We highly recommend that you try KOR teeth whitening for the best possible results. If you have any remaining stains, we can discuss other cosmetic solutions for covering them like placing dental veneers for a more attractive smile. We also recommend that if you are planning on having other dental work performed like getting dental implants, crowns, or veneers, that you have your whitening procedure completed first since these restorations are bleach resistant. Timing is critical when planning a smile makeover so we will let you know if KOR should be part of this process. For more information or to schedule an appointment with our dental office, call (631) 250-5947. We will be happy to answer any further questions that you may have.
