Advantages of Tooth Whitening with
In less than an hour, you can have noticeably whiter teeth. At Tanty Family Dentistry you will get to experience the groundbreaking KöR teeth whitening technology, recognized as the world's most effective teeth-whitening system. Rather than rely on ineffective lighting or inconsistent batches of chemicals, the teeth whitening gels KöR uses are continually refrigerated to guarantee optimal results.
Using KöR whitening gels with custom-fitted trays provides 6 to 10 hours of whitening activity, compared to 25 to 35 minutes with other systems. The chemicals used in the office also have better whitening power, making professional KöR whitening the best method for getting the best results in Waukesha County.
At-home Teeth Whitening vs Professional Teeth Whitening
While at-home remedies can have some effect, the results are often disappointing. Unsatisfying results can prompt users to try these products multiple times, causing teeth sensitivity and gum irritation. Professional whitening provides better results with less irritation. Regardless of your choice, it’s best to talk to your dentist to find out if your plan is right for your teeth.
How much do at-home teeth whitening kits cost?
At-home teeth whitening solutions come in a variety of forms. At the cheaper end are whitening toothpaste, mouthwash and whitening strips. While most of these products can be bought for less than $30, they typically will only remove surface stains such as those caused by drinking coffee. Higher-end home remedies include tooth whitening gels and trays, which typically cost $25-150. Some patients see results with these products, but many who try them experience tooth or gum sensitivity.
How much does professional teeth whitening cost?
Both in-office and at-home whitening use peroxide-based bleaching agents to remove stains from your teeth. Professional teeth whitening is more expensive than at-home remedies, costing $500 - $1,000 on average. This is because in-office teeth whitening uses solutions with 15-43% peroxide on average, while home whitening uses around 3-20%. Most of the sensitivity problems with at-home products are also less common in an office setting.
How long does teeth whitening last?
At-home teeth whitening kits provide results that last for a few months. These systems require more frequent bleaching to keep teeth from yellowing, compared to clinical whitening. KöR teeth whitening provides results that can last for six months to three years.

Will my teeth hurt after teeth whitening?

At-home whitening kits, however, often result in reported patient sensitivity or discomfort. If you opt to do at-home treatments this is something you should be aware of.
Why should I do professional whitening instead of at-home whitening strips?
Professional whitening treatment offers the safest environment for teeth whitening while also providing you with consistently excellent results. At-home remedies usually use around 5-20% hydrogen peroxide while in office treatments contain on average 15-43% hydrogen peroxide. This allows for a faster and deeper bleach of the teeth during treatment. At-home kits also tend to leave teeth feeling sensitive, unlike KöR whitening treatment which leaves the majority of patients pain and sensitivity-free.
Why do my teeth look yellow after getting my teeth whitened?
Immediately following teeth whitening your teeth are especially susceptible to discoloration from consuming certain things because the enamel has been slightly weakened by bleaching. Refrain from drinking colored drinks like coffee, red wine, or colored sports drinks. Colored foods such as tomato sauce, chocolate, and colorful fruits or vegetable can also lead to discoloration. Be sure to refrain from tobacco and acidic foods as well for 72-48 hours to ensure your enamel remains unstained.
