Have you been wishing for a whiter smile? Nowadays, everyone wants a celebrity smile that’s dazzlingly white. Although regular professional cleanings can make your smile shine, some people prefer even whiter results with teeth whitening. Teeth whitening can make your teeth look healthier and cleaner. It can also erase stains that have deepened over the years, knocking years off of your appearance. Whether you simply want to improve your smile or look younger, our Edgewood, KY dentists can whiten your teeth in as little as a 45-minute visit. You can proudly grin for the camera at an upcoming wedding or special event.
KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System
Unlike many other whitening treatments, KöR deep bleaching is a safe, permanent way to whiten your teeth up to 16 shades! KöR whitening is effective even for deep stains from coffee, tea, wine, and soda, so you won’t need to give up your favorite beverages. It’s also effective for removing tetracycline stains. Teens as young as 14 and adults as old as 90 can see dramatic changes from KöR bleaching treatments.
KöR whitening is also comfortable and safe. Our Edgewood, KY dentists will make a mold of your teeth used to create your custom whitening trays. The thin trays snugly fit your teeth and protect your gums from the whitening gel. Although some people experience brief tooth sensitivity, most have no sensitivity at all.
After sleeping with your custom trays on your teeth for 2 weeks, you’ll come back to the office for a visit to see your progress. To maintain your dazzlingly white smile, you’ll only need occasional touch-ups at home.
Laser Deep Bleaching
Dental technology has allowed us to quickly whiten your teeth with a laser. The laser speeds up the chemical process of whitening, giving you a shades-brighter smile when you walk away from your visit.
After making sure you are a good candidate for laser teeth whitening, Dr. McMahon will first protect your gums with a gel that hardens to a rubber consistency. Then, he will apply a whitening solution onto your teeth and use a laser to activate the chemicals. Your whitening will last anywhere from about 6 months to a year, depending on how frequently you drink staining beverages or use tobacco.
The Zoom whitening system is one of the fastest teeth whitening treatments available. It can give you results as soon as you leave our office. You could come into Edgewood Dental Care before a special event and be ready to show off a brighter smile that evening.
Our in-house Zoom whitening treatment takes about 45 minutes to brighten your smile by up to 8 shades. Almost everyone experiences little or no sensitivity. Your white smile will last up to a year or even longer depending on how often you drink staining beverages.
Professional Teeth Whitening Versus Over-the-Counter Home Whitening
Teeth whitening costs can vary, depending on what type you choose. Regardless, our professional teeth whitening treatments are much safer and more effective than store-bought teeth whitening kits. These can contain harsh chemicals that strip minerals from your enamel, putting you at greater risk for oral decay and disease. They also cause teeth and gum sensitivity. There is no way for these one-size-fits-all whitening treatments to protect your gums or whiten all of your teeth, so your results won’t be as effective or long-lasting.
