What are the benefits of professional teeth whitening from a dentist?

Professional teeth whitening performed by a dentist offers several benefits. It provides more effective and faster results compared to over-the-counter products. Dentists also use highly concentrated whitening agents that can safely penetrate deeper stains. Each treatment is tailored to your specific needs, ensuring even whitening and minimal tooth sensitivity. Professional oversight ensures the procedure is safe, reducing the risk of damage to your teeth and gums. Additionally, our team can address any underlying dental issues before whitening, ensuring optimal oral health.

How long do the effects of professional teeth whitening last?

The effects of professional teeth whitening can last from several months to a few years, depending on various factors. The longevity of the results depends on your oral hygiene habits, diet, and lifestyle choices. To maintain your custom color, it’s important to avoid staining foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, and refrain from smoking. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can also help prolong your results. Using touch-up treatments as recommended can help maintain the brightness of your smile for a longer period.

Should I get Opalescence or KöR whitening?

Choosing between Opalescence and KöR Whitening depends on your specific needs and preferences. Opalescence is highly effective for general teeth whitening and offers various strengths to suit different sensitivity levels. It’s a good choice if you have mild to moderate stains and prefer a flexible, at-home treatment with professional oversight.

KöR Whitening, on the other hand, is ideal for severe stains, including tetracycline discoloration. It combines in-office and at-home treatments, providing comprehensive and long-lasting results with minimal sensitivity. If you have deep or stubborn stains and want a more intensive treatment, KöR Whitening may be the better option. Consulting with Dr. Serrano will help determine which system best suits your situation.
