One of the most common cosmetic concerns patients have is the color of their teeth. Yellow or dark teeth may cause them to cover their mouths when laughing or avoid smiling around others. Let Tryon Dentistry help you feel confident to show your teeth again with our advanced KöR teeth whitening treatments!
What Causes Teeth to Stain?
Even if you are brushing and flossing regularly, the color of your teeth can dull, darken, or yellow. Common causes of teeth stains are:
- Wine, tobacco, coffee, and other dark-colored foods or drinks that are corrosive.
- Damage or infection.
- Infrequent brushing or flossing.
- Normal use and advancing age.
It is natural and normal for teeth to become discolored, but your teeth can be bright again with an advanced teeth whitening system that can only be provided by a dental professional.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Discoloration occurs when the molecular structure of your teeth is changed by one of the causes listed above. This means the discoloration is deep and often resistant to whitening toothpaste or even bleaching kits you might find at the store. A strong bleaching agent can break these discolored bonds so that your teeth can appear lighter.
Only a licensed dentist like Dr. Tryon can provide the advanced bleaching treatment needed to effectively and quickly target deep discoloration. While the effects of teeth whitening are not permanent, Dr. Tryon can provide maintenance treatments to keep your teeth looking bright and clean.
Our KöR Teeth Whitening System
Our office uses the powerful KöR whitening system that can lighten your teeth several shades. KöR Whitening is different from other systems because it seals out saliva and fluid that otherwise contaminate the bleaching gel. This allows for more intense whitening activity that stays active longer, so your teeth can look whiter faster.
We offer in-office and take-home whitening treatments for your convenience. Call us today to learn more about how we can brighten your smile!
