The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services we provide. A professional teeth whitening treatment is the quickest and easiest way to get your teeth whiter. Dental offices have powerful and highly effective bleaching products that can get your teeth whiter in one quick visit.

Teeth whitening kits from over-the-counter retailers are usually less expensive. But they take longer to work and may not be as effective as a professional treatment.

We can evaluate your tooth stains and make the most appropriate treatment recommendation for you aesthetic goals. Gradual staining can be because of aging and lifestyle choices, medical conditions, or intrinsic stains. Intrinsic stains are from genetic conditions, medications, or illness.

Common causes of tooth stains include:

  • Consuming coffee and tea daily
  • Drinking soda or red wine often
  • Tobacco use and frequent smoking
  • Certain medications that affect tooth enamel such as tetracycline

Dramatic Results With KöR Teeth Whitening

KöR teeth whitening in lexington ky

KöR Teeth Whitening treatment typically begins with a dental cleaning. We want a healthy oral foundation before using the bleaching agents to whiten your teeth. KöR is currently the only teeth whitening treatment that can effectively treat intrinsic tooth stains.

The unique refrigeration process for the KöR gel delivers exceptional results without lasers or lights. The KöR system has a take-home component and may require a final in-office treatment to complete the process.

Dr. Chambers will meet with you, evaluate your teeth and make a treatment recommendation for the best possible outcome. Start by scheduling an initial visit so we can take dental impressions. Our dentist will use the impressions to create your custom-fit bleaching trays that you will use for the whitening treatment.

Once the trays are ready, we will go over the treatment plan, how to use the trays at home, and when to return for an office visit. KöR provides the opportunity to maintain your new white smile over time using your custom trays.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Do you want to know more about your teeth whitening options? Read answers to common questions about whitening treatments below.

How does professional teeth bleaching compare to over-the-counter options?

Many over-the-counter teeth whitening options exist including whitening toothpaste, whitening strips, and gels. For patients who want the best results, professional treatment is still the best choice. We offer teeth whitening systems with custom-fit trays to ensure even whitening of the teeth.

In addition, KöR products can reduce tooth sensitivity, a common side effect of whitening. Overusing store-bought products can cause permanent sensitivity.

Can I whiten dental crowns or dentures?

No, unfortunately a dentist cannot whiten dental restorations such as dental crowns, dentures, and porcelain veneers. Dental restorations consist of materials that traditional teeth whitening treatments, whitening gels, or dental lasers can not affect.

Will bleaching cause tooth sensitivity?

One of the more common side effects of teeth whitening is tooth sensitivity. KöR whitening uses an advanced bleaching gel matrix that minimizes sensitivity. Most patients experience no negative effects from its use. KöR consists of the highest-quality ingredients, providing dramatic results in a safe, comfortable process.

How long does whitening last?

The results of teeth whitening will vary based on each individual. Most patients can expect teeth whitening to last up to a year or more. The ongoing use of the KöR touchup system at home can help extend the results of your treatment. Visiting the dentist regularly and avoiding smoking and dark foods will also keep your teeth white and bright.

Will teeth whitening fix intrinsic tooth stains?

A few different ways can give you a whiter smile, and teeth whitening is just one of them. KöR teeth whitening can help you remove intrinsic and extrinsic stains from your teeth. However, it may not be the best solution for certain cases. We offer cosmetic procedures such as tooth bonding and veneers that will give you a whiter smile with permanent results.
