Tooth Whitening

Is Tooth Whitening Right for Me?

Tooth whitening is a popular and effective option for people who want to whiten and brighten their smiles.

What Are My Tooth Whitening Options?

We offer two types of tooth whitening: in-office and take-home tooth whitening procedures. In-office whitening is done in just a single visit and can whiten your teeth quickly, whereas take-home tooth whitening is done over the course of several treatments, depending on your specific needs. Either option is effective in whitening teeth and rejuvenating your appearance. We now offer Kör Whitening, a high-quality tooth-whitening system that yields phenomenal results.

Can All Teeth Be Whitened Effectively Using These Procedures?

In most cases. Teeth whitening affects individuals differently, so results may vary. With Kör Whitening, patients with teeth that have been darkened due to illness, injury, decay, or from certain chemicals such as tetracycline, may see improvements. If your teeth do not respond to tooth whitening techniques, they can still be treated using porcelain veneers and dental bonding.

How Long Will My Tooth Whitening Last?

The results of take-home whitening kits last about 4 months on average. Professional tooth whitening performed by Dr. George will last over a year or more. You can prolong the results of your tooth whitening with proper dental hygiene and by avoiding certain foods and beverages like tobacco, red wine, coffee, and other foods and beverages that can stain your teeth.

Can I Have My Teeth Whitened Again in The Future?

Yes. Many patients choose to have their teeth whitened regularly when the effects begin to dull or teeth become discolored. Dr. George can go over all your teeth whitening options when you make an appointment for a consultation by calling 724-934-3422.
