How In-Office KöR Teeth Whitening Works
As with nearly all other treatments, KöR whitening starts with a consultation with one of our dentists. He will examine your mouth to make sure it is healthy enough to undergo the procedure. Then, we’ll get the whitening gel from the refrigerator and carefully apply it to your teeth, focusing on the tooth enamel right up to the gumline. Over the course of about an hour, oxygen molecules from the whitening gel are absorbed into your teeth, lifting and dissolving the stain molecules. By the end of your treatment, your smile will look up to 10 shades brighter and ready to shine!
Candidates for Teeth Whitening
As previously mentioned, your teeth and gums must be generally healthy in order to qualify for KöR whitening treatment. If something is amiss, we will take care of the issue before we perform the whitening procedure. We’ll also need to know what medications you’re taking to confirm that you’re a good candidate.
Benefits of KöR Teeth Whitening
When you consider what makes this treatment unique and effective, you can plainly see the advantages of choosing it. While at-home treatment requires many applications of the whitening gel, in-office KöR whitening only takes one! In about one hour, you can reach the same results as two weeks of the at-home solution. In addition, KöR whitening gel has proven effective for patients whose tooth discoloration is the result of certain medications, namely tetracycline, which was widely deemed impossible.
Unlike some other whitening solutions, KöR whitening gel is stored in a refrigerator, which keeps the gel at peak potency, and while other treatment brands come with the possibility of sensitivity afterward, KöR whitening does not. The only symptom you experience afterward is higher self-confidence!
Teeth Whitening FAQs
If you’re dealing with discoloration, KöR teeth whitening could be the solution that you’ve been looking for. However, you may still have some unanswered questions, so we’re here to help! Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we receive about KöR teeth whitening in Pensacola. If you don’t see the information that you’ve been looking for below, don’t worry. Give us a call and we’d be happy to walk you through the treatment and schedule you for a consultation.
Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?
Many patients are hesitant to commit to treatment because they are worried that it will be painful. Because professional teeth whitening is entirely custom, you are significantly less likely to experience tooth sensitivity. If your teeth are more prone to sensitivity, don’t hesitate to let our dental team know. By taking steps like spacing out treatments, avoiding hot beverages, and using specialty toothpaste, you can avoid this unpleasant sensation.
Does Teeth Whitening Damage Enamel?
Professional teeth whitening does not damage healthy enamel. However, if your teeth are compromised by decay or gum disease, the ingredients used can cause issues. That’s why we conduct a comprehensive dental exam beforehand to ensure that your smile is in good health. Additional damage can come from at-home remedies that do more harm than good, like using activated charcoal and hydrogen peroxide to attempt to address discoloration. If you want to whiten your teeth, you should always consult with your dentist first so they can help you achieve your smile goals safely.
Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?
Teeth whitening is not permanent. Typically, results will last anywhere from a couple of months to a few years depending on how well you care for your teeth. To prolong your results, you should implement a solid at-home oral hygiene routine, attend your six-month cleanings and checkups, and avoid poor dental habits.
Does Teeth Whitening Work on Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns cannot be whitened as natural teeth can. Whitening gels can actually weaken the bond between your tooth and restoration, therefore causing complications. This is why we review your dental history ahead of time. The good news is that you can help prevent discoloration by implementing an excellent oral hygiene routine and avoiding bad habits, like smoking. If you are unhappy with the current shade of your dental crown, it can be replaced to better suit your smile goals.
