Did you know there is more than one kind of tooth stain? That’s right, and some can be more difficult to remove than others. But just because your smile is marred by stubborn intrinsic tooth stains doesn’t mean you can’t obtain a beautiful, bright smile. In today’s blog, your Rochester dentist, Dr. Gilly Calcagno, explains how our state-of-the-art teeth bleaching system helps improve smiles and erase stains.
Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening
The most common type of tooth stain is extrinsic, caused by the foods and drinks we consume and occurring on the surface of the tooth. Intrinsic stains affect the inner layers of tooth structure and are often caused by injury or the use of certain antibiotics, such as tetracycline. Many people try over-the-counter teeth whitening to remove intrinsic stains. Unfortunately, store bought whiteners do little to address intrinsic discoloration. This is why Dr. Calcagno offers a professional solution.
Kor Deep Bleaching
Kor Deep Bleaching provides a professional teeth whitening system patients can use from the comfort of their own home. In some cases, teeth bleaching can actually whiten teeth stained by intrinsic discoloration. Patients typically report less tooth sensitivity and gum irritation following the use of our at-home teeth bleaching system. First, Dr. Calcagno will take an impression of your teeth and use it to create a custom-made whitening tray. Then, she will prescribe a special bleaching gel. You will undergo an initial treatment at her office. Afterward you will wear the gel-filled tray daily for the time specified by Dr. Calcagno. Finally, you will return to Dr. Calcagno’s office for the last treatment. Patients have reported teeth brightened by up to 16 shades!
