Teeth Whitening Creates New Opportunities

Teeth whitening is the most well-known form of cosmetic dentistry. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, most people state that a whiter smile is #1 on their cosmetic dentistry wish list. After undergoing teeth whitening, patients report a significant increase in self-esteem and more attractive. Having good teeth and maintaining a healthy smile signals to people that you’re concerned about your overall health. Best of all, whitening treatments are simple, fast, and gentle. If you’re considering teeth whitening in Rocky Hill CT you’ve come to the right place.

Common Causes of Teeth Stains

Over time everyone’s teeth lose their luster and brightness. As we age, tooth enamel absorbs color molecules, called chromagens, from food, beverages, and other substances that cause stains. As time passes, these trace stains accumulate and cause teeth to appear yellowed and discolored.

Good Candidates for Teeth Whitening

You may be a good candidate for professional teeth whitening if you are experiencing discoloration but otherwise have healthy teeth and gums. Those that will benefit most from teeth whitening include tea and coffee drinkers, tobacco users, and those with innate discoloration of their teeth. Dental restorations such as dental crowns, veneers, and fillings will not be affected by the whitening procedure.

What to Expect After You Get Your Teeth Whitening

It’s normal to experience some tooth sensitivity following a professional whitening treatment. You may be instructed to avoid drinking highly pigmented beverages for at least 24 hours to prevent teeth from re-staining. Sorry, but coffee, tea, and wine are on that list. Depending on your results and long-term whitening goals, you may also be sent home with an at-home whitening kit for later use.

KöR Whitening System

KöR whitening is another new whitening system that set out to address the sensitivity issues that are commonly associated with teeth whitening.

The result is an exceptionally effective gel with lower sensitivity and less risk of pain. The gel contains no chemical stabilizers, and when placed onto warm teeth, is extremely effective in doing what it’s designed to do. No use of lights or lasers is needed with the KöR system.
