Teeth Whitening Dentist Serving Greenville, Simpsonville, Taylors, Greer, Mauldin & Nearby Areas Of  South Carolina

Dull, yellow teeth are a common problem. Just about everyone experiences teeth stains at some point. They are easily caused by certain foods and beverages. Teeth discoloration is also a natural part of the aging process. Fortunately, teeth whitening treatment erases stains and reveals a bright smile. 

There are lots of bleaching systems that you can purchase over the counter that promise great results. Unfortunately, most of these options are unpredictable and can cause your teeth to become extremely sensitive. Our dentists at Flatrock Family Dentistry have found KoR Whitening to be the best teeth whitening treatment for the majority of our patients.

KoR Teeth Whitening system stands above the rest by offering a unique and innovative approach: 

  • The KoR Whitening high potency gel is continuously refrigerated and combined with a scientifically designed application system that delivers amazing and lasting results. By refrigerating the gel from production to application, it secures maximum potency and effectiveness.
  • KoR Whitening trays are designed with a seal that keeps out sulcular fluid and saliva which can contaminate the whitening gel. The trays look a lot like plastic retainers or Invisalign® trays. This technology allows the KoR whitening gel to remain active for 6 to 10 hours versus the typical 25-35 minute for other systems.
  • Kor Desensitizer – KoR has developed a desensitizing liquid that is applied before and/or after the whitening process. This desensitizer focuses on decreasing the opportunity for sensitivity to arise versus treating symptoms.

Teeth Whitening at our Office

You have decided that you want a brighter smile and are looking into your cosmetic dentistry options. The first step will be having one of our dentists evaluate your mouth to be sure it is in optimal health and ready to support a successful whitening process. Our dentists will make sure that you have no decay, cavities or gum disease that will hinder your results. If you are suffering from any of these dental issues, they will need to be resolved before starting whitening treatment. 

Once the dentist has approved you as a candidate for teeth whitening, it can be completed at home and in office. Our team will work with you to develop a custom whitening plan based off your personal lifestyle, dental needs, and desired results.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Question: Can I get my teeth whitened if I haven’t seen my dentist in a year?

Answer: If you have not had a regular cleaning and exam within the past 6 months or if you are coming in as a new patient to our office, one of our dentists will need to do an exam before beginning the teeth whitening process. Any active decay or disease will need to be addressed before whitening to allow for the most successful results.

Question: Will teeth whitening work on my teeth?

Answer: Teeth whitening will vary from person to person. Our dentists at Flatrock Family Dentistry will work with you to create a custom treatment plan based on your specific teeth, dental conditions and desired results.

Question: How much does teeth whitening cost?

Answer: Teeth whitening costs will vary depending on each patient’s current dental conditions and their desired results. Take home options will be the less expensive. The cost will increase when in-office visits are added to help cover the costs of the dental professionals, equipment and whitening materials.

Question: How long does teeth whitening last?

Answer: Teeth whitening results will vary for each patient. Below are tips to follow to help maintain your bright white smile:

  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • Brush and floss 2x per day.
  • Avoid tooth staining foods and drinks. (Use a straw when drinking staining liquids).
  • Avoid smoking and chewing tabacco.

Question: Does getting your teeth whitened hurt?

Answer: It is important to see a dental professional for your whitening services. This will assure that you are using licensed products, targeting your specific needs and avoid any damage to your teeth and gums.
