There are many products and techniques available for patients who want to achieve a brighter smile, and with so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the method that is right for you. The best way to begin any teeth-whitening regimen is to schedule an appointment and talk to your doctor about the differences between in-office professional whitening and at-home whitening.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
- KoR Whitening System
Introducing the new revolutionary KoR Whitening Deep Bleaching SystemTM that delivers the whitest teeth 100% of the time! With this whitening system you can experience the brightest lasting results, even on the toughest of tooth stains. Best of all, the system produces minimal sensitivity to your teeth, so you will be able to continue to eat and drink whatever you enjoy!
The secret to the effectiveness of the KoR Whitening system is in the constant refrigerated whitening gels. Kor's unique refrigeration process minimizes the sensitivity, provides increased gel potency, and allows you the time needed to achieve permanent results. Coupled with fitting whitening trays, that seal the bleach in around your teeth, the gels penetrate the crystals of your teeth all night long, instead of just an half hour at a time.
Seeing is Believing...
- Zoom Teeth Whitening

During an appointment, your dental professional will apply a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The entire office visit generally takes about 1 hour and half and you will be able to see results immediately, about eight shades lighter.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
- Go-Trays Opalescense® Tooth Whitening System
The Go-Trays are the professional alternative to over-the-counter tray bleaching. it's simple to use and great-tasting way to start a whitening treatment or for touch-ups, only available through your dentist. With no impressions or custom trays necessary, Opalescense Go is ready to use right out of the box
As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, hydroxyradicals help whiten stained teeth. Use the at-home professional Go-Trays for 30-60 minutes for 5-10 days and get the smile you wish for.
Whitening Toothpaste and Mouthwash
The least expensive options are whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes. Designed to have “whitening” capabilities, toothpastes and mouthwashes work to remove surface stains using mild abrasives. However, unlike the materials used in professional whitening procedures, these products do not lighten the actual color shade of the tooth. Whitening toothpastes affect surface stains and will mildly lighten your teeth.
