While some people may think that all whitening treatments are more or less the same, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Bleaching is the most popular method, but it doesn’t necessarily correct all forms of discoloration. Yellow-hued teeth tend to bleach well, but brown and gray-hued teeth aren’t affected as much, if at all. Bondings and fillings also cause problems. The materials they are made from don’t bleach, leaving them the same drab color while your shiny white teeth hide behind them.
Our Preferred Treatment
Our office uses a whitening system that has been described as the most reliable and effective bleaching system ever developed, the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System. This system can even work on tetracycline-stained or especially dark teeth. First, we take impressions of your teeth to create a custom tray. Then, you whiten your teeth over a two week period in the comfort of your own home. There is a follow-up office visit with our office and then periodic touch-up. The result is beautiful, healthy and natural-looking teeth. Patients who use this product have shown low to no sensitivity, and the system is completely safe for both teeth and gums. We intentionally chose this product for its lack of many chemicals and preservatives found in other bleaching systems.
Other ‘Use-at-Home’ Whiteners
Alternatively, there are several other types of products you can use at home for teeth whitening. Generally, these products contain peroxide(s), which actually bleach the tooth, relying on carbamide peroxide as the bleaching agent. Peroxide-containing whiteners typically come in a gel and are placed in a mouthpiece. If you obtain the bleaching solution from our office, we will make a custom-fitted mouthpiece for you that will fit your teeth perfectly.
As with any medical procedure, you should speak with us if any side effects become bothersome. For example, teeth can become sensitive during the period when you are using the bleaching solution. In many cases, this sensitivity is temporary and should lessen once the treatment is finished. Some people also experience soft tissue irritation—either from a tray that doesn’t fit properly or from solution that may come in contact with the gums. If you have any concerns about such side effects, don’t hesitate to contact us.
All toothpastes help remove surface stains through the action of mild abrasives. “Teeth Whitening” toothpastes bearing the American Dental Association’s (ADA) Seal of Acceptance have special chemical or polishing agents that provide additional stain removal effectiveness. Unlike bleaches, however, these products do not alter the intrinsic color of your teeth. What causes tooth discoloration? There are many factors. The most common among these are aging, consumption of staining substances (coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine), trauma, nerve degeneration, and old restorations. During tooth formation, the consumption of tetracycline may also cause tooth discoloration. The good news is that with today’s advances in technology, yellowing is easily reversed.
Versatile, non-invasive coverings for your teeth that can correct a range of common issues.
- Custom veneers fit over your existing teeth to correct imperfections.
- When done correctly, they are nearly imperceptible.
- Design only takes a few weeks.
If you’re dealing with misaligned teeth, unsightly spaces, annoying chips or just aren’t happy with the shape and length of your teeth, then veneers could be the best choice for you.
Because veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth, this is one of the least invasive and most painless procedures available for improving the overall look of your smile. Even the bonding process leaves the underlying natural tooth undisturbed, causing little to no damage throughout the process.
Young or old, it’s never too late to straighten your teeth and get a perfect smile.
- Adults can skip the metal and wires for invisible orthodontic solutions.
- Teeth can be corrected in as little as six months.

When people think of what’s wrong with their smile, they often don’t even consider their gum line. However, your gums play a huge role in determining the shape of your teeth and smile. For instance, if your gum line is too high, your teeth will appear short and stubby.
We use the best and latest tools available to sculpt your gum line to expose more of your bright, beautiful teeth. The best part is, this procedure can usually be done in only one visit to the office with a bit of local anesthetic. Even though the procedure is quick, the results can be dramatic!
