Quiz: Which Whitening Treatment Is Right for You?

Whitening TreatmentIf you want to enjoy a brighter and more youthful smile, you may be considering teeth whitening. This treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. It is safe, comfortable, and does not involve any alteration of your teeth. At the same time, however, the treatment can have very dramatic results for your appearance, even helping you to look years younger. At our practice, we offer several types of whitening treatment. Both at-home whitening and KöR® Deep BleachingTM are great options, but one may be better suited to your needs. Learn more about your different whitening options with this quiz.

Find out the Right Whitening Treatment for You

If you answered mostly A’s, at-home whitening may be the right option for you. We will provide you with a set of custom-made trays, which you will fill with whitening gel. You will wear the trays every day for about 30 minutes a day or according to our instructions. In just two weeks, you could have a smile that is up to 9 shades lighter. Highly affordable at-home whitening treatment cannot address intrinsic stains. However, it is a great option for discoloration on your dental enamel. You will need to undergo regular touch-ups approximately every six months.

If you answered mostly B’s, you may be an excellent candidate for KöR® Deep BleachingTM. KöR® combines in-office treatment with take-home whitening trays to erase both extrinsic and intrinsic stains. Although KöR® Deep BleachingTM does cost more than traditional whitening, it is a great investment in your smile because the results are permanent. You will never have to undergo touch-ups, and you can even enjoy things that are notorious for causing stains, such as coffee, red wine, and tea. KöR® is also a great choice if you suffer from dental sensitivity, since the whitening gel has been specially formulated to reduce or eliminate discomfort.
