Do you look in the mirror and see that your teeth just aren’t looking so fresh and white anymore? Maybe you just want the boost that comes from looking and feeling your best? If so, professional teeth whitening treatments from Gotwalt Distinguished Family Care, a dental practice in Lititz, PA might just be what you need to transform your smile and letting you shine!
As our teeth age, years of use can cause discoloration. This natural discoloration can be helped along by other factors such as smoking, tobacco use or regular consumption of coffee, tea, cola or red wine. Although daily brushing and flossing can help slow this process as well as keeping your smile healthy, these steps alone cannot stop or reverse this discoloration. Over-the-counter whitening strips and specialty toothpastes are readily available but are limited in strength and effectiveness.
This is where professional teeth whitening treatments can help you! These fast and affordable treatments are performed in the office by your dentist and their staff, producing dramatic results. Dr. Gotwalt offers effective yet comfortable treatments that can brighten your smile by several shades in only one sitting. Treatments are available that you can use in the comfort of your own home!
The Drs. Gotwalt offer two popular methods of teeth whitening that are popular and respected in the world of cosmetic dentistry: KöR Whitening and Opalescence Teeth Whitening.
KöR Whitening is available as both an in-office treatment and as a take-home system, popular for convenience and ease of use. The in-office procedure is usually followed with a course of the at-home treatment to continue the whitening process already begun and maintain the results achieved. KöR involves Dr. Gotwalt making a custom mold of your smile. This mold is used to create a custom mouthpiece, called a bleaching tray, which you are given to use at home. Every night, you will fill your bleaching tray with KöR’s powerful bleaching agent and wear on your teeth while sleeping.
KöR’s whitening gel revitalizes the natural ability of our teeth to absorb oxygen, causing stains to fade or even disappear! Teeth have can lighten as much as sixteen shades with this treatment. The unique KöR Teeth Whitening system allows the bleaching agent to achieve maximum results by completely eliminating the effects of your natural saliva and fluids present in the mouth that hinder effectiveness.
The KöR-Seal™ trays completely seal off the treated area and provide truly amazing results.With proper care and maintenance, your brilliant results can last you a very long time.
Opalescence is an at- home teeth whitening treatment that offers our patients 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 while strengthening enamel. Your treatment will enhance your smile and improve overall dental health.
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 surface of the tooth enamel, they break apart stains and whiten the entire tooth.
