Teeth Whitening Options in San Antonio
Our San Antonio dentists offer you the latest procedures for teeth whitening. Over time many factors can cause teeth to yellow or discolor such as:
- Tobacco use
- Red wine
- Dark colas
While over-the-counter remedies can provide some improvement, dentists normally can offer higher strength cleaners, and also have equipment designed specifically to get your teeth looking great again. Teeth whitening can also be combined with cleanings which are so important to preserve your gum health.
The American Dental Association has warned of potential adverse effects associated with some tooth whitening such as temporary tooth sensitivity and gingival inflammation, however our new whitening product does not cause these issues.
State of the Art Whitening now offered at Rolling Oaks Dental
Rolling Oaks Dental is now offering a new whitening product called Kor™ Whitening. Tooth sensitivity and gingival inflammation are not an issue with this whitening system!
Kor is the only whitening product on the market that stays refrigerated from the time that it is manufactured until it is applied to your teeth. Other whitening or bleaching products are not refrigerated and they have added chemicals to prevent them from breaking down after they are made; otherwise, they will begin to degrade as soon as they reach room temperature.
Because Kor products are refrigerated, there is no reason for any stabilizing chemicals to be added, therefore, your teeth don’t get sensitive to the chemicals! Kor whitening gels also contain a desensitizer which helps to desensitize and prevent sensitivity before any issues arise.
“Our desensitizing method includes desensitizers that plug the orifices of dentinal tubules during whitening to “prevent” sensitivity, rather than simply attempting to treat the symptoms. The “Hydrodynamic Mechanism” theory of tooth sensitivity states that movement of the fluid within dentinal tubules is responsible for mechanically activating the nerves at the periphery of the pulp, causing a painful reaction. When the natural smear plugs are lost from the orifices of dentinal tubules, fluid within the tubules can move thirty-two times more freely, causing dentinal hypersensitivity.
The oxygenation process during whitening not only deeply cleanses the tooth, but also actively displaces the plugs in dentinal tubules, leaving the tubular fluid susceptible to flow. The whitening chemicals create an osmotic gradient in fluid flow within the dentinal tubules outward from the pulp.”
Additionally, Kor Whitening Kor-Seal™ trays seal the saliva and whitening product into the whitening trays so that additional saliva is prevented from getting into the trays. Because there is no dilution, Kor Whitening gels to provide up to 6-10 hours of whitening activity when compared to the usual 24-35 minutes of other whitening products.
If used as directed, they also offer a full 100% money-back guarantee!
