Teeth Whitening Lititz, PA
Teeth whitening is one of the most commonly requested cosmetic dental treatments today. It can provide a quick, painless and economical smile makeover, removing the affects of both lifestyle and aging on the color of your teeth.
Dr. John and Dr. Sara Gotwalt offer two convenient options for teeth whitening in their Lititz, PA dentist office. Depending on your oral health and cosmetic goals, they will recommend the option that is best for you.
About KoR Teeth Whitening
Dr. Gotwalt offers the KoR Teeth Whitening System, a customized teeth whitening kit that has proven highly successful, even on teeth stained by medications such as tetracycline. The KoR Teeth Whitening System offers exceptional results with little to no sensitivity and can whiten teeth up to 16 shades lighter. This product typically combines a take home kit with an in office visit for maximum whitening results. Dr. Gotwalt will recommend the appropriate treatment combination for your unique oral health and cosmetic goals.
If you are using the take home kit, Dr. Gotwalt will take a professional mold of your teeth to create custom fit bleaching molds that are worn nightly over a period of two weeks, during which your teeth will slowly become whiter, brighter and more youthful in appearance. After this process is complete, you will come in for a final visit to complete the process.
With periodic touch ups and good oral hygiene, the KoR whitening system can offer permanent results.
How Does It Work?
The unique Kor Teeth Whitening system has been specially designed to enable the bleaching agent to achieve maximum results by completely eliminating the effects of your natural saliva and fluids present in the mouth, which diminish its efficacy. The KöR-Seal™ trays completely seal the treated area and provide truly amazing results.
About Opalescence Teeth Whitening
Opalescence is a take home teeth whitening treatment that offers professional results in the comfort of your own bathroom. Opalescence tooth whitening gel is specially formulated with potassium nitrate and fluoride to reduce tooth sensitivity and strengthen enamel. Your treatment will enhance your smile and improve overall dental health.
How It Works
The active ingredient in Opalescence whitening gel is either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide (depending on the treatment selected). As oxygen molecules from the whitening agents penetrate the tooth enamel, they spread, breaking apart stains and whitening the entire tooth.
