In life, you’ll find yourself in a lot of situations where you want to make a good first impression. Whether you’re trying to pick up a date or get a new job – the way you present yourself matters.
It’s not your eyes that people notice first when they initially meet you. It’s not your hair, nor is it your clothes. Studies have shown that someone is more likely to first look at your smile before every other feature when they meet you. Thus, a beaming white smile is all but necessary for making a good first impression.
Maintaining a bright smile is easier said than done, though. Coffee, tea, soda, wine, and smoking – along with the natural aging process – stain and discolor teeth.
Many people try to correct this damage by following whitening tips they found online and using over-the-counter whitening products. Such actions lead to disappointing results. Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safer and far more effective.
In fact, many dentists consider whitening to be absolute safest cosmetic dental procedure. There have been a number of advancements in the whitening products and techniques available to dentists, and we’re always on the lookout to find the latest methods that will make our patients’ teeth even whiter while remaining both safe and affordable. Our whitening solutions are always going to be more powerful than anything you can find on a store shelf.
In-Office Whitening System with Custom Trays
The KOR whitening system we use here at SK Family Dental in Puyallup was invented by the internationally renowned cosmetic dentist and bleaching expert Dr. Ron Kurthy.
This is widely considered to be the most effective method for whitening teeth. It even whitens tetracycline stained teeth. Along with the in-office whitening treatment, you will be given a custom-made set of whitening trays and two vials of whitening gel that will allow you to maintain your beautiful smile long after you’ve left our office (oral hygiene must be in satisfactory condition in order to obtain the best possible results).
Another advantage of the KOR whitening system is that it’s remarkably gentle. Particularly sensitive patients who’ve reported discomfort during previous whitening sessions rarely report such discomfort with the KOR whitening system, even when the blasts of air and cold water hit.
If you have any question about teeth whitening, custom whitening trays, or any of our other services, please contact our Puyallup dentist.
