Professional Teeth Whitening in New Providence, NJ
Over time, teeth can become stained or yellowed due to a variety of factors, including smoking, drinking coffee or tea, and taking certain medications. Our professional teeth whitening service KöR is designed to brighten teeth safely and effectively, providing amazing results that last. Unlike traditional teeth whitening gels and trays, KöR trays lock out excess moisture from your saliva so the whitening gel stays active for longer, delivering instant and impressive results. During your appointment, our team will work with you to determine the best course of action for your individual needs. We are confident that you will be thrilled with the results of our professional teeth whitening services.
How much will my tooth's color change?
There are a couple of factors that contribute to how drastically a tooth’s color can improve. Tooth color and tooth health prior to whitening significantly determine how effective a whitening treatment will be.
- Tooth Color: Typically, the more stained your teeth are, the more difficult it will be to whiten, but it is always possible. There are two types of tooth discoloration: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic discoloration is when the outside of the tooth becomes stained. This occurs when teeth are stained from drink, food, or lifestyle habits like smoking. Intrinsic discoloration is staining within the tooth which is more commonly a result of medication, childhood illness, or aging.
- Tooth Health: Teeth whitening only whitenings the tooth’s natural structure. So, if you have crowns, veneers, or fillings that cover the front of the tooth/teeth, those areas will not be whitened.
If the appearance of your smile is unlikely to improve with teeth whitening because of your tooth’s health or the extent of discoloration, dental veneers may be right for you.
Does teeth whitening hurt?
The application of the teeth whitening agent is not painful. However, if you experience tooth sensitivity to hot or cold foods before a teeth whitening treatment, the whitening process will likely make them equally or more sensitive. On the other hand, if your teeth are not prone to sensitivity, you will not usually have problems with sensitivity after whitening.
