Professional Take-Home Teeth Whitening in Tulsa, OK
One of the simplest ways to quickly improve the beauty and youthful appearance of your smile is through professional take-home teeth whitening. We generally start with an examination and cleaning to ensure everything is healthy and ready for the strong bleaching chemical. From there, we make an impression of your teeth in order to create snug-fitting trays that form exactly to your teeth.
When your trays are ready, we provide tubes of bleaching gel for you to take home. Simply place the gel in your trays and wear them at a convenient time at home for at least 20 minutes each day. Some people prefer to wear them overnight. Most people see the results they were hoping for in just a couple of weeks.
When you wear the trays with the whitening gel, your teeth absorb the gel, which contains peroxide. The peroxide releases oxygen, which in turn oxidizes the stains and pigment molecules in your teeth. The more you use the gel, the more oxidation takes place, giving you a dazzling white smile. This is a permanent process. However, life will continue to impart new stains on your teeth, especially if you drink coffee or smoke. But your teeth will always be whiter than they would have been. You may want to periodically do a “touch-up” every year or two in order to remove the new stains. If you keep your trays, this is a simple process of just picking up more gel.
KöR Deep Bleaching™
KöR can be one of the most effective teeth whitening systems that uses in-office and take-home treatments. Your teeth can get up to 16 shades lighter with KöR. KöR does what other brands can’t—significantly improve fluorosis and tetracycline stains. Before treatment, we’ll give you rejuvenating gel to condition and hydrate your teeth and help the bleaching gel penetrate deeply. Over the next few days, your teeth will get brighter, and then the color will stabilize. We’ll give you desensitizing gel to apply to your teeth daily to ensure you feel little or no sensitivity.
How Does it Work?
We’ll take digital impressions of your teeth and make custom bleaching trays. When the trays are ready, we’ll use them to apply a rejuvenating and conditioning gel to your teeth. For the next 14 days, you will use the trays, desensitizing gel, and bleaching gel to at home. We will also give you instructions on how long to wear the trays each day.
After your at-home sessions, you’ll have an appointment for in-office treatment. Dr. Cha will coat your gums with a protective gel and apply the KöR bleaching gel to your teeth for a blast of whitening. KöR provides brilliant but natural-looking results. You’ll keep your smile bright with periodic touch-ups at home.
