Teeth Whitening in Ephrata
It seems like you can’t visit the grocery store, read a magazine, or turn on the TV these days without running into some product that promises brilliantly white smiles. Unfortunately, these ready made whitening kits are usually unable to give patients the promised results. The low levels of active whitening agents and the one size fits all application trays significantly decrease the amount of time the solution remains active on patients’ teeth. Professional whitening is able to offer dramatic results up to ten shades whiter, and because these whiteners are applied by one of our skilled cosmetic dentists, patients know they will safely achieve their desired results. Contact the dedicated dental team at Ephrata Family Dentistry to find out more or schedule an appointment.
KoR Whitening is a high quality deep bleaching product, and it is effective in removing almost any surface level or deeper set stains including those caused by darkly colored or acidic foods and drinks, tobacco use, and other common staining agents.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
In addition to improving the appearance of teeth, whitening offers a number of ancillary benefits as well including:
- Patients with brighter teeth report feeling more confident
- Patients with whiter smiles often have better oral health because they are more likely to keep up with daily cleanings to retain their smile brightness
- Patients with brighter teeth look younger
- Peers consider people with bright smiles to be friendlier and more successful
The Teeth Whitening Process
If you’re ready to achieve the brilliant white smile of your dreams, let our team talk to you about professional grade, in-office KoR whitening. This innovative whitening system allows us to brighten smiles up to ten shades. KoR deep bleaching is more effective than over the counter whitening agents because the higher concentration of active whitening ingredients and custom application trays allow the whitener to seep into the porous tooth enamel and remove deep set staining from the inner dentin layer of the tooth. The first step in the treatment process is to complete a professional teeth cleaning. Once your teeth are completely clean, we take a photo of your smile. Then, you'll receive a professional dosage of whitening agent and custom crafted application trays. For two weeks, you'll apply daily dosages of these whitening agents. Then, you'll return to our office where we'll provide a final in-office treatment that will allow you to achieve your desired whitening results. Before you leave, we’ll take a follow up photo of your smile, so you can see the dramatic transformation.
Can KoR Whitening Remove Any Kind of Stain?
KoR is a high quality whitening product, and it is effective in removing almost any surface level or deeper set stains including those caused by darkly colored or acidic foods and drinks, tobacco use, and other common staining agents. However, there are some situations where even the most effective whitening product is ineffective. During your teeth whitening consultation, our dentists will review your smile, and help you determine whether KoR Whitening will brighten your teeth. If we determine whitening may not be able to deliver the results you’re looking for, we may recommend direct bonding or porcelain veneers to improve the appearance of your smile.
