Rochester Dentist Answers Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Bleaching


Do you want a brighter smile? Last year alone, people in the United States spent over 1.4 billion dollars on over-the-counter teeth whitening products. Unfortunately, store bought whiteners rarely provide the dramatic results of professional systems. Thankfully, your Rochester dentist, Dr. Gilly Calcagno, provides a professional teeth bleaching system you can use from the comfort of your own home. In today’s blog, Dr. Calcagno answers some frequently asked questions about our teeth bleaching procedure.

Common Teeth Bleaching Questions

Question: Can I whiten my teeth from home?

Answer: Yes! Dr. Calcagno will send you home with a custom-made whitening tray and a special bleaching gel. There, you can brighten your smile without enduring the short-lived results and painful tooth sensitivity often associated with over-the-counter teeth whiteners.

Question: Does Kor Deep Bleaching address intrinsic teeth stains?

Answer: Yes! Intrinsic stains are discoloration occurring on the inner tooth structure, usually as a result of medication such as tetracycline. Most teeth whiteners can’t erase intrinsic stains, but our teeth bleaching system can help remove intrinsic discoloration.

Question: Does teeth bleaching require any in-office treatments?

Answer: Yes, the first and last treatment in the bleaching process will be completed in-office by Dr. Calcagno.

Question: How does Kor Deep Bleaching work?

Answer: The first step involves Dr. Calcagno taking an impression of your teeth to create your whitening tray. Then, she will prescribe a special whitening gel. After your initial office-based treatment, you will wear the gel-filled tray daily for the amount of time specified by Dr. Calcagno. After around two weeks you will return to the office for a final treatment. In some cases, your smile may be brightened by up to 16 shades.
