Teeth Whitening FAQ

Serving Patients in Boston, Braintree, Quincy & Nearby Areas of Massachusetts

Is tooth whitening effective for all staining?

All tooth whitening procedures are very effective for surface stains on the teeth. However, for teeth that have deep internal discoloration from tetracycline use or developmental defects we recommend the KoR Whitening system.

What are my options for teeth whitening?

With KoR Whitening, we provide take-home custom trays for tooth whitening. Additionally, we offer a variety of cosmetic options such as porcelain veneers and dental bonding procedures for deep and bleach-resistant staining.

Will my teeth be sensitive afterward?

Some patients experience some tooth sensitivity following their whitening procedures. This usually resolves within a few days. However, we have found that patients experience very little or no sensitivity after undergoing the KoR Teeth Whitening treatment.

How long will the effects last?

Your teeth will always be whiter than they were before your whitening. However, your tooth color may begin to relapse again with time and from use. We find that most of our patients maintain their preferred whitening results for several years, depending on their personal habits and preferences.

Can I repeat the process if my teeth become stained again?

Yes. The tooth whitening procedures we use are safe enough to be repeated when necessary to maintain optimum whitening.  Home bleaching trays can be used whenever you feel like giving your teeth a touch up.
