Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.

Food particles are naturally attracted to a tooth's enamel by a certain protein. Products like coffee and tea, berries and soy sauce are notorious for staining teeth. Over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from food and other substances.

One type of stain-caused by traumatic injuries, medications and fluorosis-actually begins inside the tooth; brushing and flossing don't help. Our newest whitening system, KOR Deep Bleaching System will help. We offer the reliable Kor Deep Whitening System that maintains virtually permanent results. This state of the art system gets results on even the most difficult of teeth, including tetracycline stained teeth. Please call us for more information.

Another type of stain-one that can be more easily attacked by brushing, flossing and rinsing-is caused by external factors such as foods. We offer other white systems to treat this type of staining. These systems are not effective on restorations such as crowns, bridges, bonding and tooth-colored fillings (porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be more appropriate in this case).

More and more people today are choosing tooth-whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging and abuse from food and tobacco stains.

Some commercially available "whitening toothpastes" can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter. However, many of these products have abrasive substances that can actually wear away your tooth's enamel. Professional whitening performed by our office is considered to be the most effective and safest method of whitening your teeth.
