What is Teeth Whitening?
In a world where looks are everything, we want to help you get that white, picture-perfect smile you dream about. Fortunately, Knight Dental Care in Midland, MI can help you address this dilemma with professional-grade teeth whitening. Although there are tons of store-bought whitening choices, we provide KöR Whitening, a system that has proven to be superior to any over-the-counter treatments currently available. Our whitening treatments, highly recommended by cosmetic dentist Dr. Edward Knight, will whiten your teeth by several shades, helping you maintain your beautiful results for much longer than other whitening options. Our whitening solutions reach below the surface of your teeth to remove deep stains, as opposed to consumer-level options that only scrape the surface (quite literally) and provide a brighter color of yellow at best.

What are the benefits of teeth whitening?
Drinks like coffee and red wine can stain your teeth and cause them to lose natural whiteness over time. Many people hide their teeth and avoid getting their pictures taken because they have a dull smile. Teeth whitening is one of our most popular cosmetic procedures because it provides patients with a brighter and whiter smile in no time. Dr. Knight knows how to remove even the toughest stains and leave your teeth looking and feeling great. In addition to improving your appearance, teeth whitening can also make you feel more comfortable smiling in public or in front of a camera.
Who Can Get Teeth Whitening?
While researching the advantages and disadvantages of professional-strength vs. store-bought whitening solutions, you really need to consider what you are trying to achieve. If your smile has been white your entire life and just recently is starting to yellow, an over-the-counter whitening kit could produce temporary results. When your teeth have darker stains, professional-strength, in-office teeth whitening at Knight Dental Care may be the perfect solution for you. Our in-office and at-home solutions can help you achieve the white smile you're looking for. If you want to improve your smile with more than just teeth whitening, we also provide a full smile makeover in Midland, MI!
How Does Kör Teeth Whitening Work?
The KöR Whitening system begins by making molds of your teeth so we can create your custom KöR-Seal whitening tray. Based on your conversations with cosmetic dentist Dr. Knight, the proper teeth whitening level will be selected and prepared. You will wear your KöR-Seal at night while you sleep, and the system will effectively whiten your teeth. The system works so wonderfully because it restores your teeth's natural ability to absorb oxygen, allowing the oxygen in the whitening gel to seep deep down into your teeth while removing stains. Depending on your specific goals, the at-home KöR Whitening system may be paired with in-office whitening sessions for an even greater impact.
What can I expect after teeth whitening?
After a teeth whitening procedure, you may experience sensitivity to cold or hot beverages, but this typically dissipates within a couple of days. Just like all dental procedures, regular dental examinations with Dr. Knight are vital to preserving results. These exams will assess everything from gum tissue health to the condition of each tooth. When the primary procedure is finished, we generally advise returning for touch-ups a couple of times annually, in addition to professional cleanings that will benefit your oral well-being. Bear in mind that simply because your teeth are whitened does not necessarily mean that they're in perfect health. That is why regular exams are necessary. You'll also receive specific instructions regarding what food should and shouldn't be consumed in the future, for example, red wine and coffee.
Teeth Whitening FAQ
Will dental insurance cover teeth whitening?
Usually, teeth whitening is not covered by dental insurance due to its classification as a cosmetic procedure. However, we can work with you regarding payment plans and financing in order to ensure the price is never a reason to keep your smile from looking its best.
How long do the results from teeth whitening last?
The overall results, as well as their length, will vary from patient to patient. However, we typically notice patients displaying results from teeth whitening anywhere from six months to three years after the procedure.
How often should I schedule an appointment for teeth whitening?
While some patients may require more or less teeth whitening than others, we generally recommend that patients set up an appointment about once a year. This ensures that your smile will always display the best possible results without wasting your time on unnecessary treatments. During your first appointment, Dr. Knight can assess your teeth and recommend a custom treatment plan to ensure your needs are being met.
