Thanks to the professional-grade, in-office whitening system, Dr. Hatcher is able to provide his patients with the best in the business! Our whitening system is popular for a good reason – it works! Patients can enjoy the benefit of a whiter, brighter smile in about one hour in a painless, comfortable way. Our practice is proud to provide a treatment called the KöR Whitening System.
The process of in-office whitening is simple. First, patients will schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Hatcher to determine whether they are a candidate for this particular whitening treatment. Patients with restorations in their smile may need to have their restorations replaced if they plan on having a whitening treatment. The porcelain materials used in restorations will not change shade or react to the whitening bleaches. Once patients are found to be a good candidate, they will schedule a future appointment for their whitening.
Second, patients will arrive for their whitening procedure. Dr. Hatcher will apply a protective gel on the gums and lips that will keep the whitening gel from irritating these areas. The lips and gums are held away from the teeth with a soft plastic appliance to ensure all the teeth are targeted with the whitening treatment.
Third, the whitening gel is applied onto the tooth enamel. When the treatment is completed, patients can rinse their mouths and enjoy their brand new, brilliant smile!
In addition, the KöR Whitening System combines the use of not only in-office whitening sessions but take-home trays that are used in-between procedures. These trays are custom-made from the dental arch of the patient and they are sent home along with whitening gels that are used inside the trays for brightening the teeth even more. By combining in-office and take-home whitening, patients will see amazing results in a relatively short period of time!
Dr. Hatcher finds that professional teeth whitening is one of the best whitening methods around, and can whiten teeth up to eight shades lighter in just one visit. Patients can come in periodically for whitening to maintain the results and enjoy a whiter smile for life. This is a wonderful, quick, easy, and affordable way for patients to transform their dull, yellowed smile into a stunningly white smile!
