Tooth Whitening: KöR Deep Bleaching vs. Porcelain Veneers

tooth whitening treatment 1 200x300 - Tooth Whitening: KöR Deep Bleaching vs. Porcelain VeneersDark-colored foods and beverages create external dental stains. These stains are removed through professional tooth whitening treatment, such as KöR® Deep Bleaching. Internal stains result from tobacco use, genetics, and tetracycline antibiotics. Most professional whitening procedures won’t remove internal stains. Philadelphia dentist Dr. Len Tau recommends porcelain veneers for teeth that don’t accept whitening agents.

Some patients have trouble deciding if they’ll benefit from profession tooth whitening treatment. If you have multiple teeth that aren’t as radiant and bright as you’d like, then KöR® is the right choice for you. If you’ve tried professional whitening procedures, but still aren’t happy with your results, you may lean more towards porcelain veneers. If you’re undecided, a consultation with Dr. Tau is a great way to make an educated decision.

Call 215-544-2915 to schedule a tooth whitening consultation with Philadelphia, PA dentist Dr. Tau today. He’s more than happy to answer any questions you have about tooth whitening procedures and dental stains.

All About KöR® Deep Bleaching 

Philadelphia dentist Dr. Tau made the decision to offer KöR® Deep Bleaching to his patients because it’s effective and reliable. This tooth whitening treatment is completed in our office. However, for permanent results, patients must complete at-home treatments to maintain a radiant, pearly white smile

KöR® whitens all of your teeth at once. After treatment, you should experience little to no tooth sensitivity. This treatment stands out from alternative procedures because the chemicals in the whitening gel dissolve the molecules that make up dental stains and restore teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen.

All About Porcelain Veneers

If you have a single severely stained tooth, the ideal tooth whitening treatment for you is a porcelain veneer. Dr. Tau creates a thin shell from porcelain and permanently bonds it to the front of your discolored tooth. When veneers are used in alternative situations, the porcelain is matched to the color of surrounding teeth. However, when a veneer is used for tooth whitening purposes, Dr. Tau selects a brighter shade of porcelain.

Veneers are an irreversible procedure. Most patients appreciate the longevity of their results, as well as the fact that there’s no need for special maintenance to ensure long-lasting results.

There’s no need to worry if the shape of the veneer will stand out from your natural teeth. Dr. Tau shapes the porcelain shell to blend seamlessly with surrounding teeth. You can expect a cohesive enhancement after having a veneer placed over a discolored tooth.

KöR® Deep Bleaching vs. Porcelain Veneers

When it comes to deciding which tooth whitening treatment is right for you, it all comes down to two things. Are you committed to maintaining your dramatic results through at-home care? How many teeth need to brighten up so that you’ll love how your smile looks?

KöR® Deep Bleaching requires touch up treatment, in order to experience long lasting results. However, these treatments are completed in the comforts of your own home and are easy. Dr. Tau will explain how to perform the at-home treatments, as well as how often you’ll need touch ups. Veneers don’t require additional work once the shell is bonded to the tooth.

If you have one tooth that stands out from the rest, Dr. Tau recommends veneers over KöR® treatment.

If you’re having trouble making a decision about which tooth whitening treatment is ideal for you, call 215-544-2915 to schedule a consultation with Philadelphia, PA dentist Dr. Tau.
