Teeth Whitening in North Scottsdale
Nearly everyone wants to keep their smile crisp and bright. However, due to contributing factors that can range from your morning cup of coffee to exposure to tetracycline early in life, many people are left with teeth that appear dark or stained. Although over-the-counter whitening treatments are widely available, they often do not have the strength or precision to meet patients’ expectations for a truly improved dental appearance.
Dr. Michael Kelly has helped patients from Scottsdale, Fountain Hills, Carefree, and communities across the Valley gain several shades of improvement with professional teeth whitening. As part of our commitment to providing patients with comprehensive, convenient options to achieve their cosmetic goals, Aesthetic Dentistry of Scottsdale offers both in-office and take-home whitening treatment.
Deciding on the Right Teeth Whitening Option for You
The teeth whitening solution that best suits your needs is determined largely by the level of dental staining you have as well as your expectations from treatment. At your consultation visit, Dr. Kelly will discuss how quickly you expect to see results, your lifestyle, and budget in addition to evaluating your medical history and current oral health condition. Our dentist will then recommend treatment with a whitening system capable of accommodating your individual situation. As with all the services we provide, Dr. Kelly will provide ample explanation of each option and will answer any questions or concerns you have throughout your treatment.
Professional Treatment, Compelling Results - KöR Whitening®
For patients with deeply stained teeth or who are looking for profound results in a short time span, Dr. Kelly offers in-office KöR Whitening®. When applied at the correct concentration by a dental professional, this powerful system is capable of whitening teeth quickly and reliably. Much of KöR®’s value comes from the use of Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel™ Hydremide® Peroxide gel, a potent whitening agent that is climate-controlled from the moment it is produced up until it is used on your teeth. Along with the precisely fit trays our dentist uses, this system preserves the integrity of the active ingredients, ensuring patients receive the full benefits of treatment.
In situations where achieving your desired results requires comprehensive management, Dr. Kelly may also recommend at-home treatment with KöR®. Patients with deep-set dental staining often notice meaningful improvement when this take-home option is used to supplement the in-office system. With this combined approach and periodic maintenance visits, you can receive a brighter smile that is meant to last.
Opalescence® - Whitening on Your Terms
We understand that not everyone who comes to our practice needs dramatic improvement to achieve a brilliant smile. Many times, patients with minimal dental staining are seeking an effective, affordable method to enhance the results from their daily routine. In these cases, Dr. Kelly may recommend Opalescence® whitening trays, offering an option to brighten teeth that you’re able to use in the comfort of your own home.
This system consists of custom-fit trays and a whitening agent made up of potassium nitrate and fluoride. Treatment with Opalescence® is straightforward: before you go to bed, all you have to do is place the tray, apply the whitening strip and wear it for the recommended time period, and brush your teeth upon removal. An additional advantage of this take-home system is the ability to adjust treatment to your comfort level.
