Whiter Teeth in Rochester, MN
Your teeth can lose their luster for many reasons. One of the most common causes of discolored teeth is eating and drinking dark substances that stain them, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and berries. Some medications, such as tetracycline and antibiotics, may also cause teeth to discolor. Also, as you age, your tooth enamel gradually wears away and reveals the yellowish tint of the underlying layer of tooth called the dentin. With most cases of tooth discoloration, over-the-counter whitening products produce disappointing results, as they contain lower levels of peroxide than professional products. For dramatic results fast, skip the store-bought products and proceed to Dr. Calcagno, Dr. Brodersen, and Dr. Voltidi’s Rochester dental office for a professional tooth whitening treatment. They can even use the revolutionary Snap imaging software to show you how whitening can rejuvenate your smile.
Deep Bleaching with Kor
If you would prefer an at-home whitening option with a reduced risk of tooth sensitivity, you are a perfect candidate for Kor Whitening, which Dr. Calcagno, Dr. Voltidi, and Dr. Brodersen recommend for most of their patients. This revolutionary method, which produces exceptional results for tetracycline-stained teeth as well as other types of stains, combines in-office deep bleaching treatments with the use of at-home custom whitening trays. You will undergo one treatment at Dr. Calcagno, Dr. Voltidi, and Dr. Brodersen’s office, followed by wearing your whitening trays at night for a specified period of time. You will then return to your Rochester cosmetic dentist’s office for one final deep bleaching treatment that includes a formula to help desensitize your teeth. You will emerge from our office with teeth that are up to 16 shades whiter!
Lasting Results with Professional Teeth Whitening
The longevity of your results varies depending on the treatment, but Kor results tend to last longer than other teeth whitening methods. To extend the life of your treatment, you should avoid tooth-staining foods and drinks, adhere to proper oral hygiene, and perform periodic whitening touch-ups. With at-home maintenance treatments, Kor whitening can last permanently, even if you continue to eat and drink substances that typically stain teeth.
