Are Tooth Stains Getting You Down? We Have the Solution

Are you getting lackluster results with whitening toothpastes and strips?

KöR or Zoom! Teeth Whitening in Huntsville, AL, may be the solution.

The difference between professional teeth whitening and store-bought products is that one is prescription-strength and overseen by a dentist, and the other is not. But there’s more… Using a kit or system not approved by your dentist can negatively impact your oral health.

It’s true! Some ingredients are just not safe for your teeth and gums.

Professional Teeth Whitening with Your Huntsville Dentist

When you whiten your smile with us, we ensure the ingredients are suitable for your smile. We consider underlying issues as well as your restorations. Dr. Brian Cook will not even approve your teeth whitening unless he feels the ingredients in our products are safe for your teeth and gums.

How Professional Teeth Whitening Works

Zoom! Teeth Whitening is one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry options, and it is the system patients ask for by name. But, of course, KöR is also a patient favorite.

KöR is a combination system—meaning you start whitening in our dental office but complete treatment at home and at your convenience. Our Zoom! treatment is an at-home whitening system, for the most part.

Your dentist will let you know what to expect and help you choose the best option for your goals.

Maintaining Your Results

Teeth discolor for many reasons. Sometimes it’s a particular medication, but more often, it’s due to lifestyle.

Because you’ll have your custom whitening trays and gel, you can touch up your smile as you like.

Other tips include:

  • Avoiding tooth-staining foods like bright sauces
  • Cutting back on tea, coffee, and red wine
  • Quitting tobacco in all forms
  • Brushing at least twice daily
  • Twice-yearly teeth cleanings
