Are You a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
Over time, teeth naturally begin to yellow, gray, and appear dull. Because tooth enamel is porous, the foods we consume and habits we keep can have a negative affect on our smiles. Smoking and drinking beverages, such as dark cola, coffee, tea, and red wine can all cause mild to moderate dental staining (also known as extrinsic staining). Previously, internal stains caused by certain medications was untreatable with teeth whitening. However, our advanced whitening options can effectively lighten both intrinsic and extrinsic stains for a completely transformed smile.
Types of Teeth Whitening Options Available
At Nash Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer KöR® Whitening as a safe and effective option to brighten your smile by up to 14 shades. Compared to other professional teeth whitening treatments, this widely recognized system relies on your body heat to activate the bleaching agents in the solution, rather using a UV light or laser that can dry your teeth and cause dental sensitivity. We provide both in-office and take-home kits to meet our patients' varied needs.
- In-Office Teeth Whitening: During treatment, a member of our team will place a protective shield around the soft tissues to protect them from interfering with the whitening gel. We will then place the professional strength gel (stronger than our at-home gel) over your teeth. Because the gel is kept in the refrigerator, once it is applied to your teeth, the heat within your mouth activates the bleaching agent. Most patients can achieve desired results in just one session, but because of its gentle materials, you can undergo multiple treatments until optimal results are achieved. For dramatic results, you may complete at-home whitening treatment between two in-office procedures.
- At-Home Teeth Whitening: This teeth whitening option allows you to conveniently whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home. Dr. Nash will provide you with professional strength whitening gel and customized whitening trays that fit comfortably over your teeth. You can wear your trays for just 30 minutes a day or even through the night while you sleep. Most patients are able to achieve the results they desire in just two to three weeks. At-home whitening also allows you to maintain your in-office whitening treatment results.
