The value of a sparkling, bright smile is immeasurable. It can help you feel more confident, look younger, and make a better first impression on others. Retail products tend to be minimally effective, if at all. Patients seeking the best results want to find an experienced cosmetic dentist for A teeth whitening treatment. Triad Dentistry is located in Greensboro, NC, conveniently near Eden, Durham, Winston-Salem, Mebane, Reidsville, Raleigh, Charlotte, and other local communities. He offers KöR deep bleaching, which is one of the most advanced teeth whitening systems currently available.
Although tooth enamel appears smooth and hard, it is actually porous. It can absorb bits of color from food, nicotine, and other sources. Even when you brush your teeth diligently, a little of the discoloration lingers. Gradually, once-white enamel becomes dark, yellowish, brownish, or otherwise discolored.
Dental teeth whitening, also called teeth bleaching, uses a peroxide-based gel to permeate enamel and erase deep stains. The type and strength of peroxide varies, depending on the whitening system. The gel is placed in a tray or applied directly to teeth, and allowed time to soak in. It is then removed.
When performed properly, teeth whitening is generally very safe and effective. However, if the gel remains on teeth for too long, or if it is performed too often, enamel can become dehydrated. Additionally, the whitening gel should not contact gums or other soft tissues. For these and other reasons, you should see an experienced dentist for in-office whitening and follow directions exactly for at-home whitening.
There are many professional whitening systems on the market. In keeping with his dedication to excellence, Dr. Hatcher has chosen to offer KöR, which is often called the most effective whitening system in the world. With a specially formulated gel and two-phase procedure, it is exceptionally effective in removing deep stains and discoloration. However, it does more than remove acquired stains. KöR is truly unique in its ability to act on tetracycline stains, which are dark inclusions in the tooth enamel.
KöR truly is not just another teeth whitening treatment. It was developed and refined through extensive scientific research and testing, with the goal of addressing common whitening related problems.
I absolutely love Carolina Dentistry’s staff and professionalism. Dr. Santiago is extremely proficient with a beautiful bedside manner.
I’ve been coming here for years and they just continue to get better and better. Constantly updating their equipment and making the patient experience as lovely as possible.
Also, they don’t push you to do work that isn’t necessary and clearly explain the bill and work they provide.
We will begin with an examination and consultation. While most patients are good candidates for KöR whitening, there are exceptions. Most notably, serious decay or oral disease may need to be addressed before beginning cosmetic enhancement. Additionally, if you have old, dark colored dental work, we may recommend updating it, because bleaching gel will not lighten restorative materials. Once you and Dr. Hatcher decide that KöR is right for you, we will arrange an appointment for your initial whitening.
The in-office whitening procedure begins with preparation. We apply a protective barrier, which prevents the product from contacting soft tissue in your mouth. Once that is in place, an even layer of gel is applied across all tooth surfaces. It is allowed to soak in for a pre-determined length of time, and then the teeth are cleaned.
