Should I Use an OTC Teeth Whitening Product?

Smiling Mouth | Teeth Whitening Tucson AZ

We all want to look our best, and teeth whitening is a great way to quickly transform the appearance of your smile. Choosing over-the-counter whitening products can be tempting; after all, there is an overwhelming array to choose from, and they all claim to produce dazzling results!

But can they really do all they claim to do? Is it worth spending a few dollars to give it a try?

The bottom line is that, while an OTC treatment will provide some level of whitening, it is limited by the strength of the peroxide used in the product. Because treatment is not supervised by a professional, the concentration of hydrogen peroxide in OTC whiteners is much lower than an in-office procedure. You will see some whitening, but nothing like the results of professional whitening.

State-of-the-Art Whitening

At Sabino Hills Family Dentistry, we offer the ultimate solution for producing a sparkling smile. We can honestly say that a KöR whitening treatment produces results unlike those you can achieve either with store-bought products or other professional treatments.

KöR Teeth Whitening uses a proprietary formula that penetrates the surface enamel to lift out the most stubborn stains. In fact, KöR is so effective that it can even remove tetracycline staining. The treatment involves taking impressions of your teeth to produce a whitening tray that conforms perfectly to the surfaces of your teeth. Wear the trays nightly while you sleep, and in about two weeks you can expect to see results that are about 16 shades brighter. 

Results with KoR are permanent, but require yearly touchups to make sure your smile is as bright as it can be.
