Having an attractive smile can boost your self-esteem and help you make better first impressions in personal and professional situations.

Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds.
Intrinsic staining happens on the inside of the tooth due to defective tooth development or physical trauma to the tooth or from certain medications. Intrinsic staining is harder and trickier to treat than extrinsic staining but it can be done using certain professional Teeth Whitening systems. Additional cosmetic treatments may be recommended like dental bonding, porcelain veneers or crowns, that can effectively hide the intrinsic discoloration by giving the teeth a brighter, whiter appearance.
Extrinsic staining happens on the outer layer of teeth with all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis. Even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Extrinsic stains can usually be removed with whitening.
The Whitening Process
Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like. Whitening is a lifelong commitment to a healthy and beautiful white and bright smile and needs regular maintenance touch-ups along with good oral hygiene habits and dietary choices.
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth we offer two options:
In Office Treatment:
If you are pressed for time or are looking for immediate results without the hassles of having to do a lot of treatment follow up at home then this might be the best option for you. Depending on the severity of the stains on your teeth we have different kinds of Eco-friendly In office whitening systems to choose from as will be determined best by Dr. Krishnamurthy. This involves 30-45 mins of chair time with or without light with almost immediate results. You will also be provided with a take home touch up kit as well to maintain or increase the results over time especially in cases of moderate to severe staining.
Professional Teeth Whitening:
As we age, our teeth tend to accumulate stains from the food and drinks we consume each day. With our convenient professional teeth whitening options, you can enjoy that cup of coffee or glass of red wine while still sporting a bright, beautiful smile.
The powerful KöR Deep BleachingTM system consists of two in-office treatments with a week of at-home whitening in between. KöR Whitening’s concentrated hydrogen peroxide solution brightens teeth up to 16 shades, and if you follow the simple maintenance program your brilliant new smile will last a lifetime. Best of all, KöR Whitening includes a de-sensitizing gel that has been proven to significantly lessen tooth sensitivity, a common side effect of whitening.
Would you rather achieve professional results in the comfort of your own home? We’ll be happy to create a convenient take-home teeth whitening kit that includes a set of custom-made trays and a supply of professional-strength whitening gel. You could have a noticeably whiter smile in less than two weeks.
Take Home Treatment:
If you desire to do the professional whitening in the convenience of your home utilizing your custom fabricated whitening trays over a period of couple weeks then this might be the right solution for you.
We utilize a tray whitening system. This tray whitening system is completed in two steps. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we’ll craft you custom whitening trays that you can use over and over. Finally, you will put the whitening gel in the trays and wear them for a short period of time over the course of a few weeks. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 – 8 shades!
