3 (False) Rumors About Teeth Whitening

factorfictionAre you driving yourself a little bit crazy because you want to brighten your smile with teeth whitening – but you have heard some rumors that give you pause? The good news is that we only offer treatments that benefit our patients, so you can rest easy with the knowledge that our cosmetic care will not put your smile in harm’s way. Regarding the particulars of whitening and the rumors you have been hearing from friends and family, we ask you to consider the facts behind the fiction.

Rumor #1: Professional Teeth Whitening Causes Sensitivity

As a matter of fact, we take special care to select and offer whitening systems that prevent your teeth from experiencing any sensitivity. While a bit of sensitivity immediately after treatment is common, this is something that will quickly go away. Unlike over-the-counter products, which have poor whitening power but can quickly damage your teeth, our formulations offer powerful whitening, while protecting your tooth tissue.

Rumor #2: Your Smile Will Not Look Noticeably Whiter

You can expect your teeth to look noticeably whiter if you choose professional teeth whitening. Actually, you can expect them to look up to nine shades whiter – or more – depending upon your particular discoloration and results. Rest assured, friends and family will notice the transformation.

Rumor #3: Teeth Whitening Cannot Address Deep Stains

Patients are often worried that their stains are too dark, too deep, or too stubborn. Good news: we offer KoR Deep Bleaching, which is a system specifically formulated to target these types of stains. The treatment will include both take-home whitening and in-office whitening for exceptional results.
