What happens during professional teeth whitening?

If you have dull or stained teeth, or just want your teeth brighter and whiter, professional teeth whitening may be right for you. Teeth whitening removes stains from your teeth by deeply penetrating the teeth while you sleep.

At Graceful Smiles, we use the Kor Whitening system. This system uses a refrigerated whitening gel that is used overnight. This gel is highly potent, and gives patients the results they desire by removing stains from tea, coffee, and tobacco.

Impressions will be taken of your teeth to create custom trays that will be worn over night using the whitening gel. The Kor trays are designed to lock out saliva during treatment to prevent the saliva from destroying the whitening gel. This provides a highly effective whitening treatment that gives exceptional results.

Our staff will discuss how long to wear the trays, and send home instructions for each patient to follow. Patients are to wear the trays each night for around two weeks. Once that is complete, we will have you return to our office to do a shade comparison to see your results. Typically patients see results that are 16 shades whiter than before.
