Brighter Teeth Give You a New Reason to Smile
Our teeth whitening offered in our Scottsdale location is a safe way to naturally enhance your smile’s appearance without having any irreversible dental work done. If you’ve wanted a smile makeover but want to try a more conservative approach first, the Ultradent Opalescence Boost whitening is an excellent option. If you’re dealing with more stubborn stains or tetracycline staining we can also offer KöR whitening technology to help you achieve the bright white smile you’re looking for.
In fact, Dr. Lernor often recommends whitening your teeth before starting any other major dental work on your front teeth, so that future restorations can be matched to your teeth’s brighter, whiter shade.
Better Results with Professional Teeth Whitening Treatments
Anyone can use an over the counter teeth whitening treatment, however, products sold at the supermarket use lower concentrations of ingredients, making them much weaker than the professional grade gels preferred and used by Dr. Lernor. As such, the over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments don’t work as well and take longer to remove stains.
Our in-office teeth whitening treatments utilize Opalescence products, for predictably fast results that whiten your teeth better than any product sold in stores.
Lastly, some patients choose to do a combination of in-office treatments combined with take-home trays so they can touch up their whitening at their discretion (which we use both Opalescence or KöR whitening products).
Benefits of Investing in Cosmetic Teeth Whitening
- When you feel comfortable about the way your teeth look, you’ll be more confident sharing your smile in social settings.
- Make a great first impression when it really counts. Surveys show that people with beautiful smiles are more likely to do well in job interviews and make more friends.
- Take years off of your smile’s appearance, by erasing dark stains that have built up over time.
Teeth Whitening in Scottsdale and Phoenix AZ
Depending on your preferences, you can choose to whiten your teeth in one of two ways or a combination of the two:
Same Day Whitening — Chairside Ultradent Opalescence Boost whitening can take one appointment to complete.
After polishing away any stain particles, we’ll apply Opalescence gel to the visible part of your smile to activate the oxidation of stain particles. Then the gel is rinsed away and reapplied. After repeating this process 2-3 times, you’ll see brighter teeth in only about an hour.
Take Home Professional Whitening Kits —Unlike an over the counter tray or strip, our custom made whitening trays keep the Ultradent Opalescence or KöR gel against all of the unique curves of your teeth (depending on what product is recommended for your case). Your specific needs will dictate the length of time you will wear your trays. As a beginner, you can expect to wear your trays daily for 10-14 day for full results. You’ll start to see a significant difference just a few days into your treatment. Plus, the results are very easy to maintain. We recommend touching up your whitening for a few days, every 4-6 months (after your checkup and teeth cleaning is the perfect time.)
KöR For Stubborn Staining and Tetracycline Staining
What if you are dealing with really tough stains or tetracycline staining? We understand that each case is unique. There may be tougher stains that need to be whitened. We will often utilize KöR whitening treatment plan for more stubborn stains that include tetracycline staining. This approach typically includes a combination of in-office KöR treatments and take home KöR whitening trays. This approach allows for a more aggressive approach to teeth discoloration or stains.
What is unique about the KöR Whitening System is the ability to rejuvenate and restore your teeth so they are able to absorb bleaching factors. This is accomplished by breaking down large stain molecules to ultra-small colorless and white particles.
By combining in-office treatments that take 30 to 60 min with take-home treatments that allow you to have whitening treatment on your teeth for multiple hours has a great impact on more challenging cases.
