Permanent Whitening Q&A

Why isn’t my smile whiter?

There are many factors that can cause your smile to lose its luster. In most cases, it’s a combination of poor at-home oral hygiene (like not brushing and flossing regularly) and consuming too many tooth-staining substances, like:

  • Beverages with dark pigments, like coffee, tea, or red wine
  • Darkly pigmented foods, like tomato-based sauces and berries
  • Acidic liquids like soda and sports drinks
  • Tobacco products like cigarettes and chewing tobacco

Sometimes, tooth discoloration is a result of certain medications, most notably tetracycline antibiotics, which can affect the color of your teeth if you were exposed to them before the age of eight.

Lastly, your teeth naturally lose their shine as you get older. When you age, the hard outer layer of your teeth (enamel) breaks down and becomes thinner, which allows more of the soft inner layer of your teeth (dentin) to show through. Your dentin, meanwhile, becomes more yellow over time, leading to a naturally discolored smile.

How do you whiten my teeth?

Roseroot Dental offers the KöR whitening system for everyone looking for a safe and effective way to brighten their smile.

KöR is a higher end, cosmetic, at-home whitening kit that uses a proprietary bleaching gel that’s kept cold throughout the production and shipping process, ensuring that the integrity of its chemical formula remains intact. 

KöR is widely regarded as one of the best whitening systems available today and is one of the only systems that can improve teeth that are stained from tetracycline, which was never before possible.

When you whiten your teeth with KöR at Roseroot Dental, the team takes an impression of your mouth used to make custom-designed whitening trays that fit snugly over your teeth. You fill your custom-built trays with your KöR bleaching gel and wear them for an allotted amount of time every day. 

Over the course of a few weeks, your smile will become noticeably whiter and brighter. And, thanks to KöR’s proprietary formula, your results last much longer than if you were to use other bleaching systems.

Restorations typically don’t whiten like your natural teeth, so if you have crowns, bridges, or another restoration, you might need to have the team fit you with a new one after your whitening.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Whitening your teeth under the supervision of the professionals at Roseroot Dental is very safe and effective. At most, you might experience some increased sensitivity in your teeth during and after your whitening treatments. If you do, the team can provide you with a special toothpaste that’s designed to minimize sensitivity.
