Professional Teeth Whitening in Petoskey and Traverse City
Your smile is one of your most noticeable features. That’s why it’s a lot easier to feel confident about yourself when you have a bright and healthy smile.
If you have dingy, yellow teeth, it can make you feel self-conscious and reluctant to smile. Fortunately, Dr. Klym features fast and effective professional teeth whitening from two of the most trusted names in whitening — Zoom! and KöR.
Fast, Safe & Effective Whitening With Zoom
Our professional whitening treatments deliver results that can’t be matched by over-the-counter products. For example, Zoom is much more convenient than drugstore remedies that use messy trays and painful chemicals. In fact, Zoom can get your smile up to eight shades whiter in less than an hour.
Here’s how easy it is to get a sparkling white smile with Zoom. The process starts when you visit with Dr. Klym to discuss your smile goals. He’ll help you find the cosmetic treatment that’s right for your smile. If you decide to go with professional whitening, we’ll schedule your session right away.
Zoom features customized trays to protect your gums while the peroxide-based whitening gel coats your teeth. Then we use a low-heat laser that stimulates oxygen to penetrate tough stains and break them down.
Zoom does all this without harming your smile. The whole process only takes about 45 minutes to complete.
The KöR Whitening Advantage
Dr. Klym is an official provider for KöR whitening products. Continuous refrigeration and their special tray design are two factors that help KöR stand out from other whitening products. KöR products can even be used to treat teeth that have been stained by Tetracycline.
All of KöR’s whitening gels are kept cold from the time they’re created in order to maintain their potency. Why is this important? Whitening ingredients such as peroxide are highly volatile, and they degrade quickly at room temperature.
With other whitening brands, you never know how well they’re going to work. But with KöR, every batch is strong and effective. KöR also provides custom trays that seal in the gel while sealing out saliva and sulcular fluid, two substances that can reduce the effectiveness of whitening treatments.
What Causes Teeth to Turn Yellow?
Many people assume that teeth become dingy due to poor hygiene, but there are a number of factors that can cause your teeth to turn yellow. For example, diet has a big impact on the way your teeth look. Foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, wine, and berries can all stain your teeth.
Yellow teeth can also be a natural result of the aging process. Other factors that can cause tooth discoloration include smoking, physical trauma, and certain medications.
