Dr. Jeffrey Chung and associates provide professional teeth whitening to improve the appearance of your teeth and give you a brighter, more beautiful smile! We use the Zoom and KöR® whitening systems in our office to help you achieve the results you desire for your smile.
Teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most effective cosmetic treatments available at Serenity Dental of Spring. While there are many whitening products available over the counter, we strongly encourage you to seek professional treatments whenever possible for the simple reason that they produce more reliable and high-quality results than something you can buy in a local supermarket.
Professional whitening treatments are available as both in-office whitening treatments and as take-home treatments. Both in-office and take-home whitening rely on a powerful and safe whitening gel. This gel is applied to the surface of your teeth. In the case of in-office whitening, the gel is activated with a special light to brighten your smile in a matter of minutes. If you have chosen to receive take-home whitening, we provide you with whitening trays and a special oral appliance that you will fill with the whitening gel and then wear as directed. Take-home whitening is equally as effective as in-office whitening but works more gradually.
Both the Zoom and KöR whitening systems are highly effective. Zoom in-office whitening has been known to brighten teeth up to 8 shades in a single treatment session while KöR whitening has been known to brighten your smile up to 16 shades over your total course of treatment.
Teeth whitening is typically recommended to improve stains and discolorations caused by:
- Poor dental hygiene
- Smoking and other tobacco usage
- Illness and use of certain medications
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoride consumption, especially as a child)
- Foods and drinks that stain
Please be aware that whitening is not a permanent solution. After your teeth have been whitened, you will occasionally need to have your teeth “touched up” in order to keep them looking white.
