Our Teeth Whitening Can Eliminate Even Deep Stains for a More Radiant Smile
Dr. Conrad C. Casler, Jr. can use a powerful yet safe teeth whitening solution at our office in Tulsa, OK, to weaken the bond between the stains and the teeth. The result is a stunning, bright white smile you can feel proud to share. Dr. Casler’s extensive experience in cosmetic dentistry will ensure you achieve a beautifully white and natural-looking smile. He utilizes the KöR® whitening system, which can target stains even other professional whitening treatments cannot. Professional teeth whitening is a safe and highly effective method for achieving noticeably whiter teeth. It can achieve stunning effects on its own or be combined with other procedures, like ClearCorrect® aligner trays.
Types of Dental Stains
Intrinsic stains are those that occur within the inner structure, or dentin, of your teeth. These stains typically affect only one or two teeth. The stains may appear dark or yellow in color. Causes of intrinsic stains may include:
- Excess exposure to fluoride as a child
- Maternal use of tetracycline during last half of pregnancy
- Use of tetracycline before the age of eight
- Early trauma to the teeth, which can affect the development of a permanent tooth
- Trauma to a permanent tooth that causes discoloration from internal bleeding
Many professional whitening treatments are ineffective at eliminating intrinsic stains. Common treatment solutions include porcelain veneers or dental crowns, which conceal the stained tooth. Our unique whitening system, however, uses more advanced techniques for greater whitening power. This allows us to treat most intrinsic stains without the need for other cosmetic treatments.
Professional teeth whitening is a safe and highly effective method for achieving noticeably whiter teeth.
Extrinsic stains affect the outer layer, or the enamel, of the tooth. These external stains are most often caused by various foods and beverages, including coffee, tea, red wine, soda, tomato juice, and more. Tobacco products also cause external stains. The use of whitening toothpastes and regular dental cleanings at our office can help lift extrinsic stains to brighten your smile. For patients who drink coffee or tea on a regular basis, professional whitening may be necessary to achieve a truly white smile.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening uses prescription-strength bleaching agents to more effectively whiten the teeth. At Casler Dental Group, we use the KöR whitening system, which combines both in-office and at-home treatments for better results. With the KöR system, the whitening gel is refrigerated to enhance the effect the gel has on stains. This system also boasts a desensitizing solution, making it a great option for patients with sensitive teeth.
How Does Dr. Casler Whiten Teeth?
To effectively lift stains from your teeth, we will first provide you with custom whitening trays and whitening gel. You will use this system overnight for two full weeks. You will then return to our office for your in-office treatment. The in-office treatment utilizes the refrigerated whitening gel, which enhances the gel’s ability to remove tougher stains. In some circumstances, you may use the at-home system longer, and depending on the extent of your intrinsic stains, you may require more than one in-office treatment. After treatment, we recommend periodic at-home whitening to maintain your results.
Are There Benefits to this Type of Whitening Treatment?
Our KöR system allows us to remove even the deepest stains from your teeth so you can enjoy a whiter smile without the need for additional cosmetic procedures. Thanks to the desensitizing solution, the treatment is more comfortable. In just a few short weeks, you will have a whiter, more radiant smile you can feel confident about.
