Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Unlike some dental procedures, whitening requires no downtime. Patients can resume normal activities immediately following their appointment. Those who choose take-home options can whiten their teeth while performing other daily tasks.
While over-the-counter whitening products can take several weeks to work, professional teeth whitening can give you whiter teeth in just one appointment. Patients who choose our take-home whitening option can also achieve noticeably whiter teeth in as little as two weeks.
Stains and discoloration can negatively impact the appearance of your smile, making it look unhealthy. Individuals who undergo whitening can enjoy a brighter smile that others are sure to notice.

Best dentist I've been to. My childhood doctor would be hurt if I told him. Lol! The hygienist was a gem. Very respectful and explained a lot. She even took photos of my problem areas so I could see them. I never had that kind of attention before...View On Google
Types of Tooth Stains And How Whitening Can Help
Deep intrinsic discoloration is typically due to trauma or genetic factors. This affects the deep dental layers underneath the enamel. As a result, whitening may not be effective for this type of discoloration. Your dentist will likely recommend alternative treatments like dental bonding or porcelain veneers.
This type of discoloration is caused by eating dark-colored foods like red wine, smoking, or practicing poor oral hygiene. Extrinsic stains affect the enamel, the outermost layer of a tooth. The hydrogen peroxide in tooth whitening gels effectively breaks up most extrinsic stains to reveal a brighter, more beautiful smile.
What method should I choose to whiten my smile?
Teeth Whitening Options
If you opt for KöR® in-office whitening, the process begins with our dentists taking impressions of your teeth. These are used to create custom bleaching trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. For the next two weeks, you will wear these trays while you sleep. At your next visit, you will come back to our practice for your in-office whitening procedure. Our doctors will carefully apply the whitening gel, which can whiten your smile by up to 16 shades. Best of all: KöR is one of the only whitening treatments that offers permanent results.
Another option for those with a busy schedule is the DayWhite teeth whitening system. This take-home treatment will take approximately two weeks, and you will wear a tray filled with hydrogen peroxide whitening gel for approximately 30 minutes each day. You will see gradual changes in the brightness of your teeth and reach optimal results in two weeks.
How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?
Compared to other cosmetic dentistry treatments, tooth whitening is a very affordable option. In most cases, in-office bleaching is more expensive than take-home treatment, but in-office procedures also offer faster results.
To make treatment more affordable, we offer several seasonal specials. We also accept payments through CareCredit® and LendingClub®.
