Dental Whitening ( tooth bleaching)

 

Kor Whitening Deep Bleaching System

  

 BleachBefore1 BleachAfter1

  

     Just about everyone would like whiter teeth.  All societies, primitive and modern, are preprogrammed to think whiter teeth are more attractive.  The whitening of teeth was first attempted in the mid 16th century, but it wasn't until the mid 1980s that we began to whiten teeth safely and effectively.  Millions of people around the world have whiter and  brighter teeth due to this process.  Over the last twenty five plus years, with research, we have made many improvements.

     We offer several different ways to whiten teeth. The amount of whitening is the direct result of A-the strength of the bleaching peroxide and B-how long the peroxide lays in close proximity to the teeth.  The bleaching products we provide are the best available.   They are sent to us directly from the manufacturer in cold pack insulated packaging (the same packaging used to send Omaha Steaks etc).  Upon receipt we immediately refrigerate these peroxide products to prevent deterioration.  Thus, we assure the strength of the product is what the label says it is.

     *The most effective way to whiten teeth is through The Kor Whitening Deep Bleaching System, developed by California dentist , Dr. Rod Kurthy.  This is a combination of the at home and in office treatments. We begin with an in-office treatment of your teeth with a strong hydrogen peroxide gel.  Then you will wear custom made teeth trays filled with a gentler carbamide peroxide gel overnight for two to three weeks.  Then we do a second in-office treatment with the strong peroxide gel. We get exciting whitening results through this technique.

     *in-office treatment is an effective way to whiten your teeth.  We will cover the sensitive gums and lips, tongue etc to protect them from the much stronger bleaching material-in the in-office treatment it's hydrogen peroxide- which we apply three times for a total contact time of 45 minutes.  We repeat this the next day.  If you are in a hurry to get whiter teeth or don't want t bother with at-home treatment this is probably the treatment regime for you.

     *tray whitening is probably the most common way of effective whitening available.  Thin flexible covers for your teeth are constructed after making molds of your teeth.  Then you insert a carbamide peroxide gel into these trays and wear them for a specified period of time. We usually recommend wearing them over night for two to three weeks.
