Your teeth may become stained or discolored for a variety of reasons, some of which are out of your control. For example, did you know that your teeth are genetically programmed to have certain characteristics including color? Teeth are rarely perfectly white, but rather will have an undertone of gray, brown or yellow. As we age, those colors tend to become more pronounced because tooth enamel thins, which is often unavoidable as the years go by.
But really, the most common cause of that less-than-white smile is the food and beverages you consume day in and day out. What’s on your menu? Perhaps a normal day includes coffee or tea, blueberries and strawberries, spaghetti and tomato sauce, sushi and soy sauce, a glass of red wine, chocolate ice cream—the list goes on and on. Eventually, the stain-causing components in foods and beverages begin to take a toll on the appearance of your teeth.
Fortunately, there is a convenient solution to help brighten your smile. With Kör Teeth Whitening, Agawam and residents of nearby communities can once again enjoy a smile that is bright and appealing.
To treat your tooth discoloration problems and achieve a brighter, healthier-looking smile, Dr. Michitti has chosen the Kör bleaching system. Kör is a state-of-the-art treatment that whitens your teeth at the molecular level.
This proprietary system separates active ingredients until they are applied to your teeth in order to maintain freshness. In this way, you know the ingredients that whiten your teeth are full-strength. With other systems, especially those sold over-the-counter, you never know whether or not the ingredients are fresh. And unlike other systems, Kör’s whitening cartridges are kept refrigerated.
At Lifetime Dental, we offer in-office teeth whitening for fast results and take-home teeth whitening kits for patients who prefer to improve their smile gradually, or from the comfort of their own homes. You’ll be given custom-fitted mouth trays and the Kör bleaching solution designed to be used at home. Just fill the trays and wear them according to Dr. Michitti’s instructions. You’ll see your smile begin to whiten right away, but the most noticeable results will occur after two weeks of use. Whether you choose in-office whitening or the take-home kit, we’ll gladly explain the benefits of both so that you can select the method that best suits you, your lifestyle and your budget.
