Teeth Whitening in Cary
When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see a smile that has lost its luster? If tooth discoloration has left you feeling insecure about your appearance, you no longer need to feel self conscious about your smile. You can bring new life to it with a whitening treatment in Cary with Dr. Darren Koch. Now, you can get professional-quality results from the comfort of your own home using our take-home kit, and your teeth will become several shades whiter in just two weeks.
What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?
As you age, your teeth will naturally become darker. However, the severity of the discoloration can be exacerbated by several factors such as genetics, smoking, or darkly pigmented foods and drinks. Regardless of the cause behind the stains, it can leave you feeling unhappy with your smile.
To restore a bright smile, you may have already tried over-the-counter whitening products such as toothpastes or mouth rinses, but did not achieve the results you desired. Although these products are convenient, they do not contain professional-strength whitening agents and are therefore usually ineffective.
The only way to get lasting, dramatic results is with a whitening treatment from your cosmetic dentist in Cary, Dr. Koch. He uses KoR Whitening because it has been proven to be safe and very effective.
After performing an initial consultation, precise impressions of your teeth are performed and sent to a dental laboratory. At the next visit, Dr. Koch will provide you with your custom-fit trays and whitening gel, as well as instructions for use. This will ensure predictable and consistent results. You will use the whitening gel in your custom trays every night while you sleep for 2 weeks to get your teeth several shades whiter.
Am I a Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
To benefit from a professional whitening treatment, you must have good oral health. There are certain conditions that may prevent you from being a candidate, such as chronic tooth sensitivity, periodontal disease, oral cancer, or damaged enamel.
If Dr. Koch determines that you are a suitable candidate for teeth whitening, the treatment can be used to resolve stains caused by several factors, such as:
- Foods and drinks, like coffee, tea, or red wine
How Do I Maintain My Bright Smile?
After achieving your desired results, protect your new smile from future staining by maintaining excellent oral hygiene. Brush your teeth two to three times daily and floss every night. Also, make sure you visit our office twice per year for a thorough teeth cleaning and examination.
To reduce your risk of new stains, it is best to limit your consumption of darkly pigmented foods and drinks, like berries and red wine. If you cannot avoid them, brush your teeth immediately after eating or drinking to minimize their staining effects. If you cannot get to your toothbrush, rinse your mouth well with water. If you smoke or use tobacco in any form, now is the perfect time to quit!
