With so many teeth whitening options available—both over-the-counter and professional—it can be difficult to determine which option is best for your teeth. While take-home tray whitening systems are effective, patients typically prefer in-office teeth whitening with their dentist. That’s because professional whitening involves careful preparation and the use of high-quality products that yield results almost immediately.
Teeth typically become discolored through extrinsic factors like coffee, wine, or smoking—or through intrinsic factors like medications, or excessive fluoride use. Although some people experience discoloration simply due to aging.
Preparing for your whitening procedure, whether in-office or take-home, it is highly recommended you have a full exam and thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums to gain the best results.
Dr. Sapia has spent time researching for what he believes to be two (2) of the best options for his patients. These are:
- Opalescence: Using high-concentrated peroxide gel, this whitening technique offers brighter, whiter teeth in less than an hour.
- KöR® Whitening Deep Bleaching: This is the only whitening system available today that brightens teeth up to 16 shades in less than an hour.
KÖR® Whitening: This system whitens teeth dramatically, often lightening them 16 shades or more! Although everyone is different, your results will be stunning!
Opalescence® Tooth Whitening System: This take-home whitening system starts with taking impressions of your teeth to allow for custom bleaching trays to be made. Included with your new trays will be your take-home tooth whitening kit and step-by-step instructions. We will also be happy to go over these with you. For video instruction, please visit this link:
