Teeth Whitening Vs. Bleaching - Dr. Andrew Ho (BSC, DDS)

Teeth whitening does not have to involve subjecting your smile to rays and lasers. Hugo Artaza, DDS, and his staff at Artaza Dental in Katy, TX, provide KöR® Whitening, a system created by Evolve Dental Technologies in Irvine, CA. KöR Whitening produces professional-level teeth whitening outcomes without the use of lasers or lights. It is an excellent option for eliminating stubborn tooth stains, particularly if you have sensitive teeth.

What Is the Concept of Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening removes stubborn stains from your teeth by using top-grade whitening gels and solutions. Professional whitening reaches your teeth’ deepest layers, unlike over-the-counter (OTC) whitening strips, mouthwashes, and toothpaste. This produces remarkable outcomes that are immediately visible.

Over-the-counter whitening treatments often remove extrinsic stains. They cannot, though, penetrate deeply enough to remove or minimize inherent stains, which reach down to the dentin (main layer) of your tooth.

·       Extrinsic stains

Extrinsic stains are those that appear on your teeth’ surface, from the outside of your tooth enamel. While eliminating extrinsic stains brightens your teeth, it does not remove the underlying stains that accumulate with age.

·       Intrinsic stains

Intrinsic stains are those that impact the layers of your teeth underneath the enamel. They often occur over time and are hard to treat with over-the-counter medications. Professional teeth whitening produces more incredible effects than over-the-counter whitening products as it can eliminate intrinsic stains.

Why Would You Require to Have Your Teeth Whitened?

If you have an accumulation of stains on your teeth, whitening will enhance your smile. Teeth discoloration is typical as you age. Some of the most prevalent causes of tooth stains are beyond your influence, but others are linked to your lifestyle and diet.

The most common causes of tooth discoloration include:

o   Genetics

o   Age

o   Soy sauce

o   Dark berries

o   Coffee and tea

o   Sugary sodas

o   Red wine

o   Certain drugs

o   Tobacco usage

o   Chemotherapy and radiation therapy

The density of your tooth enamel determines how white your teeth are. Some people have naturally thick enamel that preserves their teeth bright and white, whereas others do not. Because your tooth enamel gradually thins with aging, thus, your teeth will discolor as you become older.

What Is the Kör Whitening System?

KöR Whitening triggers its peroxide-based whitening gel with incredibly efficient trays rather than lasers or lights.

Saliva contamination is one of the reasons most whitening products fail to produce the stunning results they advertise. Once administered to your teeth, saliva might interrupt the whitening solution, making it less efficient in eradicating stains.

KöR SealTM trays are built to maintain saliva and other fluids out of your mouth while whitening your teeth. This implies that the KöR Whitening gel can stay to remove discolorations from your teeth for a few hours without the need for a laser or light to activate it.

The procedure is mild because it is comfortable, especially for persons with sensitive gums and teeth.
