Whitening is really cool because it's an easy way to enhance your smile, especially if you've already got pretty straight teeth and they're shaped pretty well. They may not be perfect, but you just want that little pop, whitening can really do it for you. We have so many different levels of whitening. You can take a to go kit, which is just pre made, and you can have in house whitening trays. And then you can have what's called KöR whitening, which is pretty much the best whitening around. It's custom made trays. There's only one lab in the country that'll made them, in California, so we'll send them over there, and they come back. We've whitened cases that other places have told them they can't whiten, or they've tried different kinds of whitenings and it didn't work. We've whitened tetracycline case, just about anything, we can whiten. You can whiten the whole mouth so the results you get with whitening is really relatively inexpensive compared to all the other things you can do.
The difference between getting over the counter whitening, per se, or going to one of these little whitening centers that they have in the strip malls is that they use what they call, I guess, all natural products so they don't have to get any FDA clearance. They don't have to be tested on anyone. If anything was to go wrong, your gums burn, or you have sensitive teeth, it's kind of like too bad. Whereas, if you come to us, we use FDA cleared whitening products. We use whitening products that have been tested before they come to the market. And then if there are issues, those issues have already been worked out, and they're backed by huge companies, huge pharmaceutical companies and dental supply companies, so if there was something to happen, then we have some way to fix all that stuff.
Also, when you go over the counter or one of the whitening places, they're not able to diagnose any kind of dentistry that you have, so if you have a cavity that's on the edge of becoming a root canal or something like that, and then you go to whiten your tooth, now you need a root canal and crown and all these things because it wasn't caught. So really, the best way to do it is to make sure you have a healthy mouth first and then do the whitening with approved product, an FDA approved product, or a proven whitening protocol like we use here in our office.
Real Results with KöR Teeth Whitening Systems
KöR teeth whitening systems are considered to be the most reliable and effective bleaching systems ever developed – in some cases, we can brighten teeth by up to 16 shades! At Panama City Smiles, we use a combination of in-office and take-home KöR deep bleaching systems.
The process is simple:
- We will make molds of your teeth to create your custom-fit whitening trays, then we perform a whitening treatment in our office.
- For two weeks, you’ll fill your form-fitting whitening trays with bleaching gel and wear them while you sleep.
- During a final visit to Panama City Smiles, you will see your final results!
Not only do KöR whitening treatments produce stunning results, they also cause very little or no tooth sensitivity. They also promise long-lasting results with minimal maintenance at home compared to other options.
Trust Your Teeth Whitening To Professionals
The best way to whiten your teeth is to see dental professionals, like Dr. Patel and Dr. Pappas. Professional whitening is:
- More effective: we use stronger whitening and bleaching gels than you can get at the drugstore.
- Safer: we supervise the whole process to protect your teeth and gums.
What Causes Tooth Discoloration?
Tooth yellowing or staining can be caused by many factors, including:
- Dark foods and beverages
- Tobacco products
- Certain medications
- The thinning of tooth enamel that happens naturally with age
Many surface stains can be removed with daily brushing and regular professional dental cleanings with our hygienist, but more stubborn ones may require teeth whitening at our Panama City, FL office.
