Teeth Whitening An Overview
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments, providing a quick, painless and economical smile makeover – in about an hour! Teeth whitening is an easy way to restore the confidence and youthfulness of your smile.
At Proud Smiles in Sandy Springs, Dr. Paulen offers three convenient options for teeth whitening: in-office Boost teeth whitening, an at-home custom whitening kit, and KoR intensive at home, or in-office deep whitening. Each offers results far superior to over-the-counter options with the added benefit of enamel protection and reduced sensitivity.
Teeth naturally darken with age, but there are common lifestyle factors that can stain and change the color of the teeth over time:
- Red wine
- Tobacco use and smoking
- Some medications
To maintain the results of your teeth whitening, avoid the use of tobacco, dark foods, and dark beverages. Good oral hygiene and the occasional touch-up at Proud Smiles can help your treatment to last for a year or more, with KoR deep bleaching providing permanent results with proper maintenance.
