Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment designed to change the color of your tooth enamel. KöR whitening can brighten and enhance the natural beauty of your smile.

What causes discolored teeth?

Teeth can appear yellow or discolored for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Coffee, tea, or food stains
  • Smoking
  • Genetics
  • Loss of tooth enamel
  • Side effects of medications

Fluorosis, a condition caused by excessive fluoridation during tooth development, can also cause discolored patches on your teeth.

How does teeth whitening work?

Professional teeth whitening uses medical-grade peroxide to lighten your teeth and remove yellow or brown tones. This high concentration of peroxide is more effective than over-the-counter whitening toothpaste and other products. It penetrates deep into your enamel to break down stains and eliminate them, resulting in a dazzling new smile.

What should I expect during a teeth whitening procedure?

The skilled providers at Lakeside Family Dentistry typically use two appointments to set up your teeth whitening system. During the first visit, your provider takes an impression of your teeth to make a mold. This mold is then sent to a lab which fabricates custom plastic trays that fit your teeth perfectly.

At the second visit, your provider checks the fit of your trays and makes adjustments if needed. When your trays are ready, your dentist provides you with the specialized whitening solution to take home.

You wear the trays containing the whitening solution for a specific amount of time each day or night for 2-3 weeks. The KöR whitening system has been carefully formulated to prevent sensitivity during the lightening process. Once you reach the desired level of bleaching, you can stop wearing your trays.

How long will my results last?

Unlike other brands, KöR whitening reconditions your enamel, restoring it’s youthful ability to resist stains along with brilliant whitening results. Your results will be permanent, even if you’re a fan of coffee or tea. Regular check-ups and cleanings at Lakeside Family Dentistry can also help keep your smile bright and beautiful.
