Teeth Whitening Q&A

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is the process of removing stains and discoloration from your enamel, which is the hard yet porous outer layer of your teeth. 

The enamel gathers stains from the foods you eat, certain medications, and substances like tobacco. Over time, you might notice a yellow or tan tint to your teeth making your smile less bright. 

At Finesse Dental, Dr. Moqattash uses KoR® professional teeth whitening products to remove stains more effectively than over-the-counter whitening pastes and strips. 

He examines your teeth during your consultation to determine the best course of treatment. You may have the choice between a take-home professional whitening kit and a speedy in-office procedure. 

Which types of stains does teeth whitening remove?

KoR teeth whitening products can remove surface stains from various factors and substances, including:

  • Natural aging
  • Poor brushing habits
  • Smoking and tobacco
  • Tea
  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Dark soda
  • Certain illnesses
  • Certain medications
  • Fluorosis

While professional teeth whitening can lift an impressive amount of discoloration from your teeth, it can’t remove discoloration originating in deeper layers of your teeth. If your teeth are gray or blue in color, you’re better off choosing veneers as a cosmetic solution. 

What should I expect throughout the teeth whitening process?

At Finesse Dental, Dr. Moqattash helps you decide whether to get an in-office KoR whitening treatment or to use KoR whitening take-home products. He also explains what to expect and how to maintain your results. Your options are:

In-office whitening

In-office whitening with KoR doesn’t involve lasers or lights like many other professional whitening systems. Instead, Dr. Moqattash applies the whitening solution to your teeth and monitors you in the office before removing it. 

Take-home whitening

If you opt for take-home whitening, Dr. Moqattash creates custom trays for your teeth. While undergoing the process at home, apply the Hydramide® Peroxide whitening solution to the inside of the trays before placing the trays on your teeth. Dr. Moqattash tells you how long to keep them in place for the best possible results. 

KoR whitening involves minimal tooth sensitivity upon the completion of treatment compared to other teeth whitening systems.
