Can Yellow Teeth Become White? 

Teeth often become yellow due to diet and lifestyle changes. Whether you're an adult or a child, staining occurs by extrinsic and intrinsic means. Extrinsic stains are often caused by inadequate brushing, drinking tea or coffee and smoking. Intrinsic stains may occur from taking medications. Yellow teeth can often be fixed with whitening treatments. Professional whitening treatments are safer, faster and more efficient than drug store approaches. 

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining on natural teeth.
  • Restores brightness to dull/stained teeth.
  • You can stop hiding your smile! Teeth whitening is a sure-fire way to improve your confidence.

In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only options. However, bleaching is always worth a try because of the low cost of bleaching treatments.

Dentist Approved Teeth Whitening Process

The safest and most effective way to get brighter, whiter teeth is from a trusted dentist. 

  • A mold is taken of your teeth.
  • The mold will be used to make custom trays that hold the whitening gel. 
  • Once the tray is made, it's fitted onto your teeth to begin the whitening process.

Improve your smile with safe, quick and inexpensive dental teeth whitening

Windsor offers either Philips whitening tooth system or KöR Whitening options.

Philips Teeth Whitening at Home

Take-home whitening kits from the dentist have all the benefits of professional strength teeth whitening while fitting into your busy schedule. We'll help make the process as easy as possible:

  1. We will take an impression of your teeth.
  2. In a day or two, your custom trays will be ready for pickup. A bleaching agent to be placed inside the trays will be prescribed based on your individual needs.
  3. Wear your trays for the prescribed amount of time, usually about 30 minutes per day. You should start noticing results in one to two weeks.
  4. Maintain the brightness of your new smile with occasional touch-up treatments.

Custom teeth whitening trays offer consistent results to each tooth. Whitening will not alter your tooth structure or existing dental work. Once you see your results, you’ll be happy you passed on the “DIY teeth whitening” guide you found online. If you are vigilant with dental hygiene and receive whitening treatments but still struggle with discolored teeth, talk to your dentist!

Brighten Your Smile with KöR Whitening

KöR teeth whitening in Windsor, WI

Windsor Family Dental is now offering a beefier whitening system that provides exceptional results to every patient, every time. In as little as 3 days to 6 weeks, your teeth will brighten up to your desired shade. The process consists of our dental assistants taking impressions of your teeth and fabricating trays in-house to custom fit your mouth. You’ll whiten at home for 2-4 weeks and then come in for a final in-office session.

KöR uses a pH of 7 which is a more neutral agent and better for the teeth. This whitening method is mostly permanent and you’ll experience little to no sensitivity. We recommend only those aged 14 and up use this method of teeth bleaching.

KöR Teeth Whitening Cost

For full mouth KöR teeth whitening, it typically costs $750 for all the tools and procedures you’ll need at home and in the office. If you choose to just do one arch, the cost is $375. Extra syringes (2) for maintenance will be an additional $50.

KöR Teeth Whitening Procedure

  • During your first appointment, a dental assistant will take impressions of your teeth. This generally takes about 30 minutes. We make the whitening trays in-house to custom fit your mouth.
  • At your next appointment, you may have in-office conditioning to prepare your teeth for the whitening procedure. We will also deliver your trays. This will take about an hour with two conditioning sessions (using 13% Hydremide Peroxide) running about 20 minutes in length.
  • You’ll take your trays home and whiten your teeth daily for about 2-4 weeks. During the day you’ll wear the trays for about an hour and at night you’ll wear them while you sleep.
  • At your last appointment, we’ll provide an in-office whitening (34% Hydremide peroxide) to really solidify the whitening results. This will take about an hour and a half to complete with three sessions at 20 minutes a piece.

Disclaimer: We recommend using sensitive toothpaste while you’re whitening at home. Also, avoid food or beverages that stain the teeth.

At Home Teeth Whitening Instructions

You’ll receive enough 5 mL KoR whitening gel syringes for whitening 2 times a day. You should store the whitening gels in the fridge or a cold place.

Daytime KöR Instructions

  • 9% Hydrogen Peroxide (2 x 5 ml syringes)
    • For the first day, apply desensitizer before, rinsing with water
    • Apply whitening gel to trays and wear them daily for 30-60 min
    • After, rinse trays with cold water, rinse mouth with water, and brush teeth. Apply desensitizer and rinse

Nighttime KöR Instructions

  • 16% Carbamide Peroxide (2 x 5 ml syringes)
    • For the first two nights, apply desensitizer before, rinsing with water
    • Wear trays overnight
    • In the morning, rinse trays with cold water, rinse your mouth with water, and brush your teeth. Apply desensitizer and rinse

Whitening Teeth with Crowns

If you have dental crowns, the shade chosen during the procedure will match that of your existing tooth color. If your natural teeth begin to yellow, you may want to consider getting a whitening treatment to blend them with your crowns. Whitening treatments will not affect crowns since they are designed to be resistant to discoloration, meaning they will stay the same color from when you got them. Some whitening methods such as bleaching may actually damage the crown if it's old or your surrounding teeth have decayed. Teeth bleaching is only recommended if done before your crown procedure.

If you have crowns, talk to your dentist before scheduling a teeth whitening appointment. The dentists at Windsor will help you choose the best option when it comes to whitening your smile.

Crest Whitestrips on Tooth Restorations 

If you've had restorative work done to your teeth, you may wonder if the whitening process will change their color. Bleaching, whitening trays and Crest Whitestrips will not harm or whiten crowns, caps, fillings, veneers, partials, or composite bonding. If you have yellowed teeth and also need a restorative procedure, it's recommended that you have your teeth whitened before the restoration. After your teeth have been whitened, your dentist will be able to better match your dental restoration to the color of your natural teeth. 

If you’re ready for a whiter smile, contact our office today. We assist patients in the town of Windsor from the surrounding areas including Arlington, DeForestWaunakee and all of Columbia County and Dane County, Wisconsin.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

How long does KoR Whitening last?

With proper maintenance (regular touch-ups) and exceptional dental hygiene, KoR whitening is permanent. It offers dramatic results that are much more long-lasting than other whitening kits on the market. Speak with one of our dentists at Windsor to see if KoR Whitening is right for you.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Certain at-home whitening kits may cause gum irritation, tooth sensitivity and harm to your tooth enamel, that's why it's best to go to a professional for all teeth whitening services. At Windsor Family Dental, you get the benefit of a brighter, whiter smile with take-home, custom-made whitening trays.

Is there pain or discomfort associated with teeth whitening?

Many people experience high levels of tooth sensitivity or pain during the treatment or after. The pain and discomfort you feel will depend on your own oral sensitivity. If you do have teeth or gum sensitivity, talk to your dentist about potentially adjusting your treatment to account for the sensitivity. Windsor also offers KoR whitening options that have produced little to no sensitivity for most patients.

Is there an age restriction on teeth whitening?

Most professional teeth whitening can be done at any age, but KoR whitening systems are recommended for ages 14 and up (when permanent teeth have fully erupted). It's not recommended to whiten baby teeth since whitening agents are abrasive and can cause demineralization over time.

How white will my teeth get?

KoR whitening methods can lighten your teeth up to 16 shades. Other whitening methods promise 7-8 shades lighter, but these results are not always guaranteed.

Will my crowns, veneers, or fillings whiten too?

No. Crowns, veneers, and fillings are made of strong materials that are designed to be stain-resistant. When you have a tooth restoration performed, the restoration will be designed to match the rest of your teeth for a natural look. This is why it's recommended to have your teeth whitened before your restorative procedure for a perfect, white smile.

What foods and drinks affect tooth color?

The basic rule of thumb when it comes to tooth staining is that anything that can stain a white t-shirt will probably stain your teeth. Included in this list is coffee, tea, berries, dark cola, tomato sauces, soy sauce, and a handful of candy/sweets.
