A Brighter Smile, A Brighter You!
Over the years, most of us eat spicy foods and sauces and drink colored beverages such as coffee and sodas. Over time the pigments from these foods and beverages slowly work their way into your tooth structure darkening and yellowing your teeth, and impacting the brightness of your smile. The process of whitening, or bleaching, can be used to erase these stains and return teeth to their unstained shades.
A whiter smile is a more youthful smile and not only looks great but will increase your self-confidence! We offer in-office and at-home whitening options to help you obtain a fresh new smile, and a happier you!
At North Spring Dental patients can choose between at-home whitening or in-office treatments. We begin by recording the initial shade of your teeth. This technique gives you control of the progress and allows you to stop treatment once you have achieved your desired shade.
Whiten Your Teeth at Home
At-home whitening can consist of any, or a combination, of the following:
- Custom whitening trays that are comfortably molded and fabricated to fit your mouth for at home convenience. Trays last many years and affordable bleaching gel will allow for years of touch-ups.
- Disposable whitening trays for bleaching, gift giving, or for your once in a while needs.
- Professional whitening strips
- Bleach syringes for your already made retainers
- Professional whitening toothpaste to maintain your bright smile
In-Office Professional Whitening
When obstacles such as sensitivity and tetracycline staining prevent you from bleaching the way you want, NSD can offer in-office solutions to allow you to whiten your teeth in a comfortable manner. Our in-office whitening helps control the evenness of your brighter, whiter smile, and prevent any gum/tooth sensitivity you may notice when using over-the-counter bleaching products. It also allows our dentists to place higher concentrations of bleach in a safe and controlled manner to improve the whitening results. Patients often comment that they have never been able to get their teeth so white before.
Treat yourself to a conveniently scheduled appointment where we can administer a professional application of bleach for a noticeable result. In-office whitening is performed with KöR®-whitening. KöR® offers predictable and exceptional whitening results for every patient, every time. Widely recognized as the world’s most effective teeth whitening system, KöR® offers phenomenal home whitening for average patients, including astonishing treatment of tetracycline cases, and everything in-between.

Don’t be Fooled by the Myth of Bleaching Lights and Lasers
There has been great controversy regarding the effectiveness and advisability of bleaching lights and lasers for well over a decade. Manufacturers of these products continue to claim that they add great benefit to the whitening process, but scientific, published clinical studies (those studies not funded by bleaching light or laser manufacturers), and a large majority of dentists disagree. In fact, the opposite may be true. Turning on lights and lasers can actually be turning up the sensitivity…and the pain!
