Mansfield In-Office Teeth Whitening
A brighter smile is on many patients’ wish lists, and the majority of patients who visit our Mansfield dental office for professional teeth whitening have already tried at least one store bought product or DIY teeth whitening trick. Skilled Mansfield cosmetic dentist, Sandi L. Hamm, DDS, is happy to offer patients personalized, professional teeth whitening services. One of our most popular smile brightening options is the KoR deep bleaching system. A combination of in-office and take-home treatments delivers brilliantly white smiles even for patients whose teeth could not be brightened with other professional whitening options. If you’re ready to get started, call our team to schedule an appointment today.
Causes of Dental Staining & Discoloration
Teeth discolor for a number of different reasons and understanding the cause of your tooth staining will help us to make the best treatment recommendations to help you achieve your desired results. Some of the common causes of dental discoloration include:
- Consumption of dark-colored foods and beverages
- Worn tooth enamel revealing the inner dentin layers of teeth
- Tobacco usage
- Overconsumption of fluoride during dental development causes brighter white spots on teeth
- Taking tetracycline medications during dental development can lead to dark banding around the tooth
The KoR Deep Bleaching System
The KoR deep bleaching system is completed in two steps. First, patients will complete a take-home whitening treatment to remove surface staining and prepare teeth for their in-office deep bleaching. These take-home teeth whitening kits use customized doses of the patented KoR bleaching agent to be used in the morning or at night based on your unique needs and schedule. Following the two to four week at-home bleaching, you’ll visit us for an in-office bleaching session. These in-office treatments take about two hours to complete, and they utilize a customized dosage of the active tri-barrel hydremide peroxide gel that makes KoR so effective for patients with even the most stained smiles.
Maintaining Your Results
Following your KoR whitening treatment, we can also provide KoR touch up treatments to be used at-home for teeth whitening weekends to touch up your results. To keep your teeth looking bright, you should limit your intake of darkly-colored, staining foods and drinks and stop smoking or tobacco use. You should brush and floss your teeth daily to remove bacteria and plaque. You should also keep up with your twice a year dental exams, so we can provide professional cleanings to keep your teeth sparkling.
