Questions We Are Frequently Asked About Teeth Whitening

How does the KOR whitening system work?

The KOR whitening system combines in-office and at-home treatments. It starts with a professional in-office bleaching session, followed by customized at-home whitening trays and touch-up gel to maintain the results over time.

How much whiter will my teeth be after whitening?

After undergoing a tooth whitening procedure, your teeth can become several shades whiter. The exact degree of whiteness achieved varies depending on the original color of your teeth and the whitening method used. In-office treatments like the KOR system can provide significant whitening, often up to eight shades lighter.

Is tooth whitening safe?

Yes, tooth whitening is safe when performed by a professional or using dentist-approved at-home kits. The products used are tested and proven to be effective without harming your teeth or gums. However, it’s important to follow the instructions provided and to have a dental check-up before starting any whitening treatment.

Will tooth whitening work on all types of teeth?

Tooth whitening works best on natural teeth that have yellowed over time. It may not be as effective on teeth that are grayish or have been stained by medication. Additionally, restorations like fillings, crowns, and veneers will not respond to whitening treatments.

How long does tooth whitening last?

The longevity of tooth whitening varies depending on your lifestyle and oral hygiene. Typically, the results can last from several months to a few years. To maintain the whiteness, avoid staining foods and drinks, and follow good oral hygiene practices. Touch-up treatments can also help prolong the results.

Does tooth whitening cause sensitivity?

Some people may experience temporary tooth sensitivity during or after the whitening process. This is usually mild and short-lived. Using toothpaste for sensitive teeth before and after treatment can help reduce this discomfort.

Can I whiten my teeth if I have fillings, crowns, or veneers?

Tooth whitening does not affect the color of dental restorations like fillings, crowns, or veneers. If these restorations are on your front teeth, you might need to replace them after whitening to match the new shade of your natural teeth.

How often can I whiten my teeth?

The frequency of tooth whitening depends on the method used and your individual needs. Professional in-office whitening may last longer, so you might not need another treatment for a year or more. For at-home kits, follow the guidance of your dentist.

What are the risks of tooth whitening?

The risks associated with tooth whitening are minimal, especially when the procedure is overseen by a dental professional. The most common side effects are temporary sensitivity and mild gum irritation.

What's the difference between professional and over-the-counter whitening?

Professional whitening, like the KOR system used at York Village Dental, offers more significant and faster results compared to over-the-counter products. Professional treatments are also safer and tailored to your specific dental needs.

How do I maintain my teeth after whitening?

To maintain your whitened teeth, avoid staining substances like coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco. Practice good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist regularly. Consider using a whitening toothpaste or occasional touch-up treatments.
