Men and women in the Bedford, TX area may consider whitening their teeth with over-the-counter methods. Whitening strips, toothpastes, and trays are available at most drugstores and can be easily purchased by patients who want to rejuvenate their smile. However, there are pitfalls to these whitening treatments. Many are not strong enough to provide effective results, while some may cause patients to experience extreme sensitivity. Patients may find they are repeatedly purchasing whitening products but not seeing the results they desire and deserve. This is often the point when dentists in the Bedford, TX area suggest patients consider the benefits of professional grade teeth whitening services. 

Teeth whitening with dentists is a much more effective way of pulling deep stains and discoloration from porous enamel. Some of these stains may be caused by foods, drinks and habits such as smoking or chewing tobacco. Some patients are also predisposed due to hereditary factors. Patients who want to bring a smile from drab to fabulous are encouraged to speak to Dr. Sater of Bedford, TX to discover the benefits of undergoing professional services. 

Teeth whitening with a professional is done with the guidance necessary to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the products. Dr. Sater provides both in-office and take-home whitening trays which are FDA-approved and have been used for years to rejuvenate patient smiles. He loves the ability of the KöR whitening system to provide dramatic results and whiten even the dullest of smiles in just a week or two. Teeth whitening services through a local dentist office has many benefits, including the ability to enjoy professional results and guidance. Many patients find that they spend less on quality dental office whitening than they do for many repeated attempts at lightening the smile with over-the-counter methods. 

If you live in the Bedford, TX area and have considered the benefits of whitening your smile with professional-grade products, contact Dr. Sater and his team today to schedule a consultation visit and examination to determine if professional teeth whitening is the most effective way of enhancing your natural smile! 

Professional Teeth Whitening Options in the Arlington

At Rush Creek Dentistry, we understand that a primary concern for our patients is the brilliance and beauty of their smiles. Arlington area patients often visit our practice to ask about professional dental teeth whitening options, as over-the-counter whitening solutions often provide subpar results—if any. Our practice encourages patients to strongly consider professional-grade whitening services such as the KöR deep bleaching system.

The KöR system starts with an in-office procedure during which teeth are professionally cleaned by the Rush Creek Dentistry hygiene team. Then whitening begins with a gel applied to the teeth and activated with a special light. Precautions are taken to protect the patient’s eyes and soft tissues. In just one appointment, the patient leaves with a dramatically brighter smile!

The true secret to the KöR deep bleaching system is take-home maintenance. Patients keep their smiles looking great with periodic touch-ups using custom-made whitening trays and the KöR gel product. This helps to keep the brilliant new smile looking great for years to come! Patients are encouraged to continue whitening after their initial treatment for optimal results.

While over-the-counter products are less costly than in-office treatment, they do not come close to the results achieved with the KöR deep bleaching system. Over time, patients can easily spend a lot of money for drug store whiteners and never reach the level of brilliance they could with this professional-grade method. At Rush Creek Dentistry, we encourage patients who are concerned about dullness and discoloration of their smiles to talk with us about the benefits of KöR and the results it can achieve for a lifetime of beautiful smiles!

KöR deep bleaching is safe and effective and has been approved by the FDA. This method of whitening can be used on patients age 14 and older and has been shown to provide amazing results. There is also less chance of temporary sensitivity, which is often the number one complaint of over-the-counter whitening product users.

If you reside in Arlington or the surrounding community, do not hesitate to contact Rush Creek Dentistry today to learn more about the KöR deep bleaching system. Find out how quickly and easily you can obtain the pearly whites you’ve always dreamed of having!

Teeth Whitening Treatments

Years of coffee, wine, and smoking can take a toll on the appearance of the natural teeth. Enamel is porous and can soak up stains and discoloration, which can negatively affect the coloring of the teeth. Dr. Sater of the Mansfield, TX area can help patients by providing professional teeth whitening treatments. 

Although some patients turn to their local drugstore for whitening solutions, many of these provide little—if any—results. Patients are often disappointed with the minimal whitening effect these have on their smile and are interested in finding out how professional teeth whitening treatments compare. Since professional-grade products are much stronger and provide longer-lasting results, they are often the treatment of choice for patients serious about whitening their smile. 

Dr. Sater provides his patients with a few different options when it comes to achieving that dazzling new smile. There are two methods primarily considered including in-office power bleaching and take-home whitening trays. In-office power bleaching allows patients to enjoy remarkably whiter smiles in approximately one hour with special whitening solution. This treatment is chosen for patients with busy lifestyles or for those who want to look and feel their best at an upcoming event. The other treatment, take-home whitening trays, can be used in the privacy of a patient’s home to whiten the teeth gradually. These are made with custom trays and patients are provided with special peroxide gel to use in these trays approximately one hour a day for results in just a few weeks. This is a more economical solution and allows patients to have much more control over their results. 

In some cases, Dr. Sater may suggest patients consider a combination of both treatments. Patients can enjoy the quick boost of whitening with an in-office procedure and then whiten at home for dramatic results. Patients can always visit Dr. Sater for more whitening gel to continually boost their smile’s appearance and allow them to control the results they achieve over time.

Whiter Smile!

Almost everyone seems to long for a whiter smile. When so many of our favorite beverages and foods lead to stained, yellow teeth, those pearly whites can seem out of reach. As a result, more and more people are turning to cosmetic whitening treatments to get the bright smile they want. However, depending on the whitening treatment you choose, it may be months or even years before you see noticeable results. Even if you do see results, though, do you know how long those results will last?

At Rush Creek Dentistry, we try to choose the best possible whitening treatments for our patients so that you can get quick, lasting results. We offer the KöR Deep Bleaching System, which works in a unique way to give our patients the results they want. The KöR system works by using a few different steps that all work together to improve your smile in the best way possible.

  1. We will perform a thorough cleaning before doing anything else to remove any plaque so that the surfaces of your teeth will be clean before the whitening treatment begins.
  2. We will take a mold of your smile so that your whitening trays can be custom-made for a perfect fit, which will ensure a more comfortable and effective treatment.
  3. The first step of whitening will be done in the office with a bleaching gel so that you can walk out of the office with a visibly whiter smile.
  4. Once your take-home trays have been created, you may take them home and continue the whitening process at home for sustainable results.
  5. After the initial whitening treatment is complete, you can use the trays for occasional touch-ups to keep your smile white.

If you have been longing for a whiter smile, visit our office in Arlington, Texas and ask the dentist about the KöR Deep Bleaching System. Even if other whitening treatments haven’t worked for you, you might find that this treatment can finally give you the sustainable results you need. 

KÖR Cosmetic Teeth Whitening

A whiter, brighter smile is more attainable than many patients realize. At Rush Creek Dentistry in Arlington, we provide cosmetic teeth whitening. This service allows individuals to whiten the enamel of their teeth quickly, easily, and safely. Over-the-counter whitening solutions are available, but many patients find these to be overpriced for the results they provide. Many of them do not provide patients with the results they desire. Instead, patients visit Rush Creek Dentistry to undergo effective whitening solutions.

At Rush Creek Dentistry, we offer a special whitening system called KöR cosmetic teeth whitening. This treatment is effective on food and drink stains, as well as medication stains such as tetracycline. It has been proven as safe, effective, and it allows patients to enjoy a more beautiful smile without the sensitivity often experienced with other treatments. Patients over 14 can enjoy KöR whitening.

KöR whitening uses take-home whitening trays for deep bleaching. These trays are custom-made, ensuring amazing fit and function. Patients use these trays in the privacy of their own home, and can enjoy a dazzling smile in as little as two weeks. Patients can continue to whiten periodically to ensure they maintain the results as long as possible.

Most patients are proper candidates for whitening, except those with periodontal disease or restorations. Patients with periodontal disease must first get their condition under control, and patients with restorations may need to have them replaced if they decide to undergo treatment. At Rush Creek Dentistry, we can help patients determine if KöR cosmetic teeth whitening is right for them. Patients in the Arlington area are encouraged to visit our practice to speak to our dental professionals and determine the benefits of undergoing KöR whitening. We can help in restoring smiles that have been discolored, and work with patients to restore both their dental health and the beauty of their teeth and gums with cosmetic and general dentistry procedures. Call us today to find out more about our whitening products and services available to improve the aesthetics and beauty of the smile.
