FAQs: How Do I Brighten My Smile?













How do you feel about your smile? Do you wish your teeth were brighter and free of unsightly teeth stains? The foods and drinks we consume, along with plaque buildup, can cause our teeth to lose their luster. Fortunately, with professional teeth whitening, you can obtain a significantly brighter smile. At A Briter Smile Dental Group, we offer a number of cosmetic whitening solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening?

Question: How does KOR Whitening work?

Answer: With KOR Whitening, patients can brighten their teeth from home. We will take impressions of a patient’s teeth to make whitening trays. Patients will then fill the trays with a powerful bleaching solution and war them, either over night for a few hours each day. In about two weeks, patients can receive dramatic results.

Question: Can dental bonding brighten my smile?

Answer: In some cases, dental bonding can be used to mask embarrassing teeth stains. This involves coating the tooth in a composite resin shaded to match surrounding teeth. This can be completed in just one visit.

Question: Will porcelain veneers mask permanent teeth stains?

Answer: Yes. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are attached to the front of a tooth. Veneers are designed to blend seamlessly with your smile and can cover teeth stains, improving the beauty of your smile.

Question: How often should I have my teeth cleaned?

Answer: To remove plaque and reduce the appearance of stains, we recommend professional dental cleanings. The American Dental Association recommends a thorough dental cleaning twice a year, once every six months. A regular cleaning also reduces the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
