Professional teeth whitening is designed to brighten teeth that have yellowed and darkened over time. These discolorations are typically the result of a person’s exterior tooth enamel becoming increasingly transparent. This exposes more of the inner yellow dentin material, and it makes the outside surfaces appear discolored. Our professional treatments can virtually eliminate the staining of this inner material to help the teeth appear whiter overall. Just one professional whitening procedure can greatly improve the look of a person’s smile and help them achieve the look they have always wanted.
While home remedies may temporarily mask the problem by covering up the inner darkened material, only professional whitening treats the core causes. Once the internal staining is addressed, the teeth will appear whiter as a whole, and the fantastic results will look remarkably natural. Additionally, the results are long-lasting, and the patient will be able to immediately show off their brightened smile following treatment. It’s perfectly normal to experience discolorations and darkened teeth. Some of the causes are:
- Certain foods and drinks
- Exposure to tobacco products
- Excessive tooth wear
- Inadequate oral hygiene
- Oral injury and trauma
- Genetics and aging
At Fairfield Smiles, we are proud to feature the KöR teeth whitening brand in our professional whitening treatments. KöR consists of a high-potency whitening gel that is applied directly to the teeth using trays. What makes KöR unique is that this brand of gel is refrigerated continuously to prevent it from degrading. KöR also uses special trays that prevent the saliva from interacting with the gel and can cause it to break down more quickly. This allows the gel to act on the teeth for a longer period, and it helps to provide more effective results.
Another factor that makes KöR treatment unique is that it does not use any lights or lasers to release oxygen from the gel. Instead, the gel will naturally release oxygen to whiten the teeth. This helps to keep the patient as comfortable as possible during treatment, and it ensures that no energy is wasted in the process. The gel will continuously treat the teeth once the trays have been applied, and most procedures can be completed in under an hour. After treatment is finished, the patient will enjoy a brightened smile that radiates with strength and well-being.
