Teeth Whitening Q&A

What causes teeth to become discolored?

The enamel of your teeth is strong and sturdy, but it’s made of porous material that’s prone to stain. In addition to dullness over time or poor oral hygiene, teeth frequently become yellow or gray due to prolonged intake of berries, tobacco, and teeth-staining beverages like coffee, wine, soft drinks, and tea. Certain medications may also cause discoloration over time.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a bleaching procedure that lightens teeth and helps eliminate stains and discoloration. The skilled team at Dr. Park’s office uses top-of-the-line whitening products to brighten your teeth and restore your smile.

There are many home options for teeth whitening that can help, but professional treatments done under the supervision of a dentist offer longer-lasting results. Dr. Park offers in-office whitening treatments or concentrated take-home bleaching kits.

What happens during an in-office teeth whitening appointment?

Dr. Park protects your gums and lips with a dental guard that she places comfortably in your mouth. She and her team offer the following teeth whitening procedures:

Sinsational Smile

With Sinsational Smile teeth whitening, Dr. Park places patented pre-filled silicone trays in your mouth. They can effectively whiten teeth one to two shades in just 20-25 minutes.

KöR whitening

KöR whitening can help you achieve ambitious results if you’re willing to undergo a more involved process. KöR whitening trays and gels provide 6-10 hours of whitening activity to deliver superb, long-lasting results. 

Is teeth whitening safe?

Not only is teeth whitening safe, but it’s painless. Because bleaching agents contain material that can erode and compromise the enamel on your teeth, you should consult an experienced dentist like Dr. Park for professional oversight of your teeth-whitening treatment to ensure safe, accurate results.

How often is teeth whitening needed?

Dr. Park recommends only one or two teeth whitening procedures in one calendar year. If overused, whitening agents can damage vital tooth enamel. In-office whitening is the safest way to whiten teeth to ensure that abrasive bleaching agents don’t damage your enamel.

At your consultation with Dr. Park, she determines the exact frequency of whitening treatments you need to optimize your results.
