Over the counter vs. professional

When it comes to teeth whitening, we understand that we’re competing with hundreds, even thousands of over the counter whitening products you can pick up along with your groceries. While these products may be minimally effective at removing surface stains, only a professional whitening treatment can remove those deep, pesky intrinsic stains that give teeth their color. Our professional grade bleaching agent penetrates deep into the tooth channels and breaks up discoloration, removing years of stains in a single treatment. We use KoR® – the world’s most effective whitening system – and have both in-office and at-home options for you to choose a treatment method that’s convenient for you.

Maximize your results

In order to maximize your whitening results, and keep teeth as white as possible for as long as possible, it’s important to understand how teeth stain, and to minimize or avoid staining as best you can.

  1. Avoid staining agents – Coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco are the big ones, but anything that will stain a white t-shirt will stain your teeth.
  2. Sipping habits – If you can’t avoid staining agents all together, sipping stain-causing beverages quickly, and through a straw will minimize staining.
  3. Oral hygiene – Brushing and flossing daily, especially after meals will help maximize your whitening results. When brushing is not an option, rinse with water.
  4. Come see us – Unfortunately your teeth whitening results will not last forever, so you should come see us every few months for a whitening boost to keep your smile as white as possible.
