A consultation with your dentist regarding teeth whitening opportunities will outline the solutions that can provide a substantial improvement in your smile.
Opalescence Xtra Boost®
Dental stain can occur due to negligence, medications, illness, lifestyle habits, and/or consumables. People of all ages can benefit from this whitening treatment that lightens teeth several shades in about sixty minutes. In the time you normally take for lunch, you can enhance your appearance.
This teeth whitening process is safe and individualized for patients; explain to your dental provider any concerns you may have such as sensitivity.
KoR Deep Bleaching
Deep, intrinsic dental stain can be treated lightening teeth up to sixteen shades. Why is this method so much more effective? It is because saliva and sulcular fluids in the mouth can diminish the strength of whitening gels … teeth whitening trays used with KoR are designed to keep saliva and sulcular fluids away allowing KoR deep bleaching to release the stain molecules trapped in teeth providing a bright, white smile.
Who make good candidates for teeth whitening?
KoR bleaching is usually reserved for individuals sixteen or older while Opalescence is safe for patients of all ages. But age is not the only factor to consider … patients must understand how their teeth become stained to try to prevent a recurrence. Diet, lifestyle, and negligence are possibly the three major reasons teeth become discolored or stained:
Certain foods stain dentition such as many berries, tomato based sauces, dark sauces like soy, and seasonings like curry. If you know you are going to enjoy these foods, plan to rinse or brush as soon as you can. Beverages such as coffee, tea, red wine, and cola are big offenders. Drink cold beverages with a straw so most of the beverage can bypass teeth. Rinse or brush as soon as you can. Don’t sip on beverages all day; drink with meals to allow saliva to help keep teeth rinsed.
Smoking and tobacco use are hazardous to more than your smile – just don’t use them!
