KÖR DEEP BLEACHING AT SMILES4OC, COSTA MESA

Would you like to flash a dazzling white smile and have the confidence knowing that you look terrific? Drs. Thomas J. Rolfes, Christina T. Do, Cary J. Dunne, and Timothy J. Rolfes have a simple affordable option for you to achieve that beautiful white smile with professional teeth whitening solutions in Costa Mesa, CA. With the KöR whitening treatment, patients can look and feel their best!

WHAT CAUSES DISCOLORED TEETH?

Many patients may notice their teeth are not nearly as bright and white as they would prefer. Our dentists see patients who are concerned about the color of their teeth, including yellowing and staining. There are many reasons why the teeth may be discolored. Some patients may naturally have darker teeth, sometimes due to genetics. Others may have darker teeth because of their favorite foods and beverages, which have stained them over time, including coffees and red wines. There are also prescription medications that can result in darkening of the teeth, which can be resolved with our laser whitening treatment. Patients who have otherwise healthy teeth but are displeased with their color can ask the team of Smiles4OC about professional whitening solutions.

TEETH BLEACHING SOLUTIONS

Whiter teeth are now easier to achieve than ever before. We offer a variety of treatment options from super-fast in-office laser whitening to convenient take-home whitening options. Both offer superior results when compared to over-the-counter whitening methods, which often fail to provide noticeable whitening.

IN-OFFICE LASER WHITENING WITH KöR DEEP BLEACHING

Our laser whitening system, in one visit – about 20 minutes - your teeth can be an average of eight shades lighter. The treatment is painless, quick, and the results are long-lasting. Patients love the quick treatment for its effectiveness and efficiency. Deep intrinsic stains that could never be bleached out before can now be eliminated with our KöR deep whitening system that can be performed in the office.

HOME TEETH WHITENING

If you prefer the flexibility of whitening in your own home, Drs. Thomas J. Rolfes, Christina T. Do, Cary J. Dunne, and Timothy J. Rolfes can design custom-fitted trays so you may treat your teeth with a gentle bleaching compound. Take-home trays are a comfortable solution, and you will see full results in about two weeks.

COMBINATION TREATMENTS

In some situations, patients who are serious about brightening their smile and keeping it beautiful may consider combining the in-office treatment and the take-home whitening trays. Patients can start with the KöR deep bleaching treatment in the office to initially brighten the smile, and then use the take-home kits to continue to whiten in the privacy of their own home. This gives patients more control over their results.

WHICH TREATMENT IS RIGHT FOR ME?

Deciding on the bleaching treatment for you is a personal choice. Some patients want fast, monitored results with an in-office laser treatment such as the KöR deep bleaching option. Others want a less expensive option that can be done over time and provides gradual results with the take-home kits. Our dental team is here to educate patients on the pros and cons of each treatment to determine which option is most appropriate for one’s specific needs. We want individuals to know that they have made the right decision for their smile and are happy with the results achieved. Drs. Thomas J. Rolfes, Christina T. Do, Cary J. Dunne, and Timothy J. Rolfes believe in providing patients with the information they need to make a knowledgeable decision regarding the cosmetic dentistry services they decide to move forward with at Smiles4OC.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR TEETH BLEACHING?

It is important for patients to know that bleaching the teeth is a long-term change, and that restorations within the smile will not change colors. For example, patients with dental crowns, bridges, or porcelain veneers will find that their restorations will no longer match their smile after they have brightened their teeth. We encourage patients with restorations such as these to consider having them replaced to ensure they integrate into the smile seamlessly. At Smiles4OC, our dentists want patients to have restorations that look completely natural and do not stand out as past dental work. The best candidates for professional teeth whitening are those without restorations, though this doesn’t mean those who have them are unable to move forward with a brighter smile!

HOW EFFECTIVE ARE PROFESSIONAL WHITENING SOLUTIONS?

Whichever method you choose, teeth whiteners work using a hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide-based mixture. This means that, in some cases, teeth whitening can result in temporary sensitivity. This is very much based on an individual patient basis. We will cater the treatment to each individual and recommend the appropriate strength (15 percent to 30 percent), depending on your individual sensitivity level.

While there are several over-the-counter options available in the local drugstore aisles, many of these products fall short of providing the results patients strive for. Drs. Thomas J. Rolfes, Christina T. Do, Cary J. Dunne, and Timothy J. Rolfes may encourage patients to consider professional alternatives if they have been unhappy with the results they have achieved with strips, trays, and toothpastes that advertise a brighter smile. Professional grade products have a stronger percentage of active ingredients, which ensure amazing results. In fact, many patients can whiten their teeth several shades lighter in just one appointment, and enjoy this brighter smile for many months.
