Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is recommended for anyone who desires a whiter, brighter smile. Also called “bleaching,” it is used to restore teeth when they have become stained, yellow, or dull. This can occur due to the normal wear of the outer tooth layer, as a result of medications, or due to smoking or drinking beverages with staining properties such as coffee, tea, or red wine. Teeth whitening works by employing a special gel which has been designed for professional use. When applied to the outer surfaces of the teeth, it assists in removing yellow or dark stains and reveals whiter, brighter teeth. 

What happens during the whitening process?

During the whitening process itself, the teeth will be cleansed to remove debris or excess plaque or tartar that would otherwise block the bleaching solutions. Once the teeth are cleaned, the gums and soft tissue of the mouth are protected with a gentle retainer while the whitening gel is applied to the teeth. A non-UV light application is then directed at the gel covered teeth for about 15 minutes to fully activate the whitening components. KöR uses a special non-UV light application which eliminates much of the pain and sensitivity commonly associated with teeth whitening. When the gel is removed the teeth will appear whiter and brighter immediately. KöR Ultra is used exclusively at Dr. Huang’s offices and It is widely recognized as the world’s most effective teeth whitening system. KöR offers cost-effective solutions from phenomenal home whitening for average patients to astonishing treatment of tetracycline cases and everything in-between. 

How are professional teeth whitening better than over-the-counter kits?

There are many teeth whitening systems and products including whitening toothpastes, over-the-counter gels, rinses, strips, trays, and whitening products obtained from a dentist. Over-the-counter kits are a one-size-fits-all method that usually does not produce long-lasting results. However, when a professional grade whitening treatment is applied, its formula is stronger and offers long term results. Because whitening treatments are overseen by a professional, the gel will be dispensed with more consistent coverage. The results of a professional teeth whitening procedure can last for quite a long time with proper care including daily flossing and brushing and regular dental appointments for professional cleaning and check-ups. Dr. Huang’s office uses the combination of a take-home whitening system and an in-office whitening procedure known as KöR. Customized whitening trays are fabricated and are used at home before and after the one hour in-office whitening session. The results are remarkable.
