Stained or discolored teeth can make you look much older than your true age. Even if you have great dental habits - brushing and flossing daily - stains can rob you of a dazzling smile. But now, Dr. Leer can brighten your smile and shave years off of your appearance, in as little as one hour. We offer three effective and popular methods of teeth whitening.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening can lighten you teeth up to 10 shades in a single office visit. By applying a bleaching gel to your teeth and activating it with a low-heat light, Dr. Leer can remove years of built up stains and discolorations. You will leave our Toledo office with a radiant smile.
For the toughest stains, we offer KöR Deep Bleaching™ by Rod Kurthy. This amazing system works by stimulating your teeth’s natural ability to absorb oxygen. A potent bleaching solution penetrates the tooth’s enamel so the oxidizing agent can remove deep-down stains. KöR normally involves a few office sessions, followed by home treatment.
We also offer take-home teeth whitening for patients who prefer to whiten on their own schedules. We create custom-molded trays to fill with our potent whitening solution. Wear the trays daily, and you'll notice a dramatic difference in no time. Typically, take-home whitening lightens teeth 8 to 10 shades, rather than the 2 to 3 shades achieved with most over-the-counter whiteners.
By offering these top-rated teeth whitening options, Dr. Leer can customize a treatment plan to fit your specific needs. While most stains and discoloration are effectively treated with these systems, it’s important to know that some patients with sensitive teeth, periodontal disease, or worn enamel my not respond well to teeth whitening. For these patients, Dr. Leer can recommend other cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as porcelain veneers. Whatever your treatment choice, it won’t be long before you’re smiling with confidence.
