How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

A beautifully white smile can instantly enhance your appearance and give you the self-esteem boost that you’ve been looking for. After all, a whiter smile looks fresh, ready, and beautiful. If you’re unhappy with the color of your teeth, know that you’re not alone. Many of our patients come through the doors, searching for ways to get that sparkling white look. Fortunately, we have the answer to their problem!

At Levenson Smile, we have three primary teeth whitening options. They are created with all types of people in mind. Whether you’re needing a whiter smile right away, or prefer to get results over time gradually, we have the right treatment for you! Check out the differences in each treatment and let us know which one you are interested in learning more about.

In-Office Treatment

Professional in-office whitening treatments are the choice for many patients. The patient simply sits in the dentist’s chair while a gel is painted on to each tooth. A light is used to activate the bleach that is in the gel as the patients kick back and relax. After about one hour, the results are dramatic! You’ll walk away with a beautiful white smile that you are proud of.

At-Home Treatment

The second option is the at-home treatment. To do this, the dentist will need to make impressions of your teeth so that customizable trays can be made for you. A whitening gel is placed into the tray and worn overnight. As you sleep, the whitening gel works to transform the color of your teeth slowly. Keep in mind; this process is not instant. If you’re looking for immediate results, then this treatment option may not be right for you. It takes several weeks to achieve the final results.

KöR Teeth Whitening System

The preferred whitening treatment is the KöR whitening system. Consider it a combinational approach to teeth whitening as it uses both in-office and at-home techniques in order to achieve the best results.  The bleaching system is done in-office as well as at home. This combination approach helps to get the whitest and brightest smile in the shortest amount of time.

Who Should Get Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a great option for patients who are unsatisfied with the color of their teeth. Keep in mind, teeth whitening does not repair cracked, broken, or damaged teeth. In some instances, teeth whitening may cause sensitivity. Your dentist can help identify if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening.

What Can Teeth Whitening Do for You?

Teeth whitening can restore any confidence that you’ve lost due to a dingy smile. You’ll look and feel your best and finally feel confident flashing your smile in a room full of people. Don’t underestimate the power of a beautiful smile.
