KOR® Teeth Whitening – McMinnville, OR

The One True Whitening Solution

Tired of seeing your morning cup of coffee in your discolored smile every day? Has natural aging caused your teeth to yellow, or has medication given them an unattractive brown hue? Most whitening treatments are able to remove surface stains from the teeth, but they leave the dark pigments located deep within the enamel untouched, so the discoloration never fully goes away. That’s where KOR teeth whitening in McMinnville, OR distinguishes itself. With its bleaching gel, it’s able to eliminate both extrinsic and intrinsic stains, creating a smile that is dramatically whiter and ready to shine for the foreseeable future. To learn more and schedule your own KOR treatment, contact us today.

Why Choose Evans Street Dental for Teeth Whitening?

In-Office Teeth Whitening

If you want brighter teeth as quickly as possible, then we recommend getting a complete KOR treatment in-office. This appointment usually takes about an hour and can result in a smile that is eight to 10 shades brighter when you walk out the door. It’s perfect for patients on the go or those who have a special event just around the corner.

For the procedure, we’ll first apply a protective layer to your gums so they won’t be irritated by the bleaching gel, and then we’ll paint the gel onto every tooth that shows when you smile. KOR contains a much higher concentration of the active ingredient that actually whitens the teeth compared to store bought treatments, so it’s able to provide a higher-quality result in much less time. The gel will be left on your teeth for about 15 minutes, wiped away, and we’ll repeat this process a few times until we reach your desired shade. Most people are extremely satisfied after just two to three rounds.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

If you would rather whiten your smile while relaxing on the couch watching Netflix, we can send you home with your own KOR whitening kit. This will consist of mouth trays as well as the potent gel. You’ll simply need to use the trays with the gel as instructed for a few minutes a day to get the results you want. Typically, patients notice a difference after the very first use, but to get the brightest white possible, we recommend using the kit for at least two weeks.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

If you’re ready to get a sparkling smile, you can count on Evans Street Dental for the one true whitening solution that achieves the dazzling results you deserve. While our take-home and in-office teeth whitening treatments are some of the most popular services we offer, we want you to feel 100% confident in your choice. During your initial consultation, we’ll be happy to answer all your questions personally. But in the meantime, we’ve gathered some of the most common questions about teeth whitening below so you can learn more!

Will Teeth Whitening Make My Teeth Sensitive?

Using a store-bought whitener too much or incorrectly can easily lead to painfully sensitive teeth. Thankfully, you have nothing to worry about when you come visit us for a teeth whitening treatment. Whether we’re monitoring your treatment in-office or have sent you home with customized whitening trays, we will do everything we can to make sure you stay comfortable while getting a brighter smile. Plus, our professional-grade whitening products are made from trusted ingredients that have been specifically designed to minimize tooth sensitivity.

What’s the Difference Between Store-Bought & Professional Teeth Whitening?

There are countless teeth whitening products for sale at your local grocery store, pharmacy, and online. While store-bought whitening strips, pens, trays, brushes, and mouthwashes may seem like a quick and cost-effective alternative to a professional teeth whitening treatment, they’re often not worth the time or money. Without the oversight of a dentist, these products can only use diluted whitening agents that aren’t nearly as powerful or effective. Plus, the one-size-fits-all applicators and other whitening methods aren’t customized for your unique smile, which means you’ll be at a higher risk of tooth sensitivity and gum irritation.

On the other hand, when you visit us for an in-office or take-home whitening treatment, you are practically guaranteed amazing results! With a single in-office treatment or two weeks of personalized whitening trays, we can help lift years of stains from your teeth comfortably and reliably.

Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?

While teeth whitening results aren’t permanent, they do have the potential to last for several years with the right care! By the same token, a few bad habits and poor choices can cause your teeth to discolor again very quickly. To make the most out of your teeth whitening, keep these tips in mind:

  • Brush for two minutes twice a day and floss daily
  • Minimize your consumption of dark-colored foods and drinks
  • Enjoy dark-colored beverages through a straw
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day
  • Quit using tobacco products
  • Visit us twice a year for checkups and cleanings

Does Teeth Whitening Work for Everyone?

One of the many reasons why teeth whitening is so popular is that practically anyone can be a good candidate for it! Children, teens, adults, and older adults can all quickly and easily get the bright smile they deserve with professional teeth whitening as long as they are in good oral health. However, teeth whitening is not always the best option in all cases. If your tooth discoloration stems from an injury to the tooth, overexposure to fluoride in childhood, or certain medications or illnesses, we may instead recommend treatments like dental bonding or veneers to help you achieve the results you’re looking for.
