Teeth whitening is the quickest and simplest means of dramatically improving your smile. And no system delivers better results than KöR Whitening, used by the experienced team of board certified dentists at Lake Success Dental Care in New Hyde Park, New York.
Teeth can lose their sparkly whiteness for a variety of reasons. External discoloration that occurs on the outer enamel of the tooth is most often the result of consuming dark-colored foods and beverages or using tobacco products. Among the most common foods and beverages responsible for staining teeth are:
Internal staining affects the inner dentine, or structure of the tooth. Common causes of internal staining include:
Teeth whitening works extremely well on external discoloration. Some internal discoloration is not always as well remedied. In such cases, a crown or veneer may offer better results.
Ideally, we recommend patients have a professional teeth cleaning within two weeks of their teeth whitening treatment. The whitening procedure begins with the application of a protective gel to the lips and gums. Next, a medical-grade whitening agent (hydrogen peroxide) is painted onto the front surface of the teeth. To help patients maintain their newly brightened smiles, we offer take-home kits with professional grade whitening gel and a custom-made mouth tray. There is no downtime after a teeth whitening treatment is complete.
We use the most advanced whitening system on the market, KöR Whitening. KöR Whitening offers several advantages over other products. Among these, it produces little to no sensitivity. It also offers dramatic results, lightening teeth up to 16 shades or more in a single treatment. KöR even whitens teeth that are intrinsically discolored due to having taken tetracycline during childhood. Teeth whitening is completely safe, as reported by many clinical studies and countless satisfied patients.
