Teeth whitening has become one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments today, providing a quick, easy and economical smile makeover. There are many reasons why our teeth become stained and discolored. It is actually a natural part of aging. Teeth whitening can erase the signs of aging and effects of lifestyle habits, giving back a more youthful smile that you will feel confident sharing with others. There are a wide range of over the counter options readily available, but a professional teeth whitening under the care of a cosmetic dentist is safer and more effective. The products we have chosen to offer patients also provide deeply penetrating whitening that can address most stains- with a lasting result.
Dr. Don Reid offers convenient options for professional teeth whitening at Tahoe Dental Artistry in Truckee, CA. Whether you desire an in office or take home option, your treatment will dramatically brighten and whiten your smile without sensitivity- and with lasting results.
Teeth Whitening: What To Expect
Dr. Reid will meet with you personally to evaluate your overall dental health and discuss your cosmetic goals before your teeth whitening treatment. This is an important step, providing the opportunity to ensure that your tooth stains or discoloration will respond to treatment – and that your teeth are clean and healthy for the best possible result.
For patients who have stains from medications, medical conditions or genetics that may not respond to a teeth whitening treatment, Dr. Reid can recommend alternatives for whitening your smile with permanent results. These cosmetic dentistry treatments can include tooth bonding, dental veneers or dental crowns.
Dr. Reid offers in office treatments and take home options, both of which are customized to your specific oral health needs and goals. For maximum results, he may recommend a combination of an in office procedure and follow up take home treatment.
KöR Teeth Whitening
KöR teeth whitening uses patented KöR-Seal™ trays for amazing results, even on teeth with tetracycline stains. This clinically-developed and tested teeth whitening method has made key improvements compared to older methods of professional whitening.
KöR is a unique whitening system using science that addresses the problem of our natural saliva reducing the efficacy of bleaching products. This allows the whitening process to last much longer for each application, enabling better penetration of tooth enamel for amazing results.
The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching option requires a brief in office treatment followed by a take home regimen that is convenient and easy. This revolutionary method to whiten teeth allows the patients to wear the KöR bleach for a longer period without suffering from tooth sensitivity. This also means the bleach can penetrate deeper, attacking more difficult stains and the results should last longer. This system allows your dentist to have more freedom over the strength and duration of your treatment.
