Teeth Whitening in Albuquerque NM

Whether you prefer in-office whitening for quick results or want to brighten your teeth at home, we have the perfect solution!

If you are looking for a safe and highly effective way to whiten and brighten your smile, Sandia Heights Dental Care is here to help. We are pleased to offer KöR Whitening and Opalescence, two leading professional teeth whitening systems.

What Causes Teeth Staining and Discoloration?

Teeth staining and discoloration can occur with time due to years of wear and tear, highly pigmented foods and drinks such as berries and red wine, tobacco use, certain medications, and certain illnesses. The good news is that professional teeth whitening can lift the toughest stains, leaving you with a brighter smile and a confidence boost.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening systems typically use the same basic science to deliver dazzling smiles. They involve the application of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide gel to the tooth surfaces. As the bleaching agents break down into free radicals, they attach to the dark molecules within the tooth structure, lifting stains and discoloration. The result? Brighter teeth and a whiter smile. 

KöR Whitening - An Overview

KöR whitening offers in-office and at-home treatments with predictably stunning results every time. The innovative whitening solution rejuvenates and restores your teeth's ability to absorb oxygen, eliminating discoloration at the molecular level. KöR whitening targets the most stubborn tooth stains, including those resulting from tetracycline use, previously thought impossible. 

Whitening gels are unstable and slowly degrade at room temperature. KöR is the only system with continuous refrigeration of its gels from manufacture until placed on your teeth, guaranteeing 100% freshness and maximum effectiveness. Moreover, our scientifically designed KöR-Seal custom trays seal out saliva, allowing for 6+ hours of active whitening at a time instead of the standard 25-35 minutes, providing unmatched results. 

What Is the KöR Whitening Procedure?

After determining the right level of whitening for the smile, we will take impressions of your teeth to create your custom KöR-Seal whitening trays. During an upcoming appointment, we will provide you with your whitening trays, bleaching gel, desensitizing solution, and use instructions. In most cases, our patients wear their KöR whitening trays during their sleep for two weeks. 

After two weeks of home whitening, you will come in for an office whitening session using our refrigerated KöR whitening gel. Depending on the extent of teeth staining, you may require more than one office treatment. After achieving your dazzling smile, you will need periodic at-home maintenance treatments.  

The KöR whitening system can brighten your teeth 16 shades or even more! Unlike other whitening methods, KöR's results are permanent with periodic touch-ups, even if you drink coffee, tea, or red wine!

Opalescence Whitening - An Overview

Opalescence offers unique whitening products in different concentrations, delivery options, and flavors. From custom home whitening solutions to in-office whitening, the innovative system accommodates all budgets and lifestyles. 

The secret to the Opalescence's incredible results is the viscosity of the whitening gel, which helps keep it in place. That provides sustained peroxide release for dramatic whitening results. Opalescence's active ingredients penetrate the tooth enamel. The oxygen interacts with the discolored molecules, eliminating the most stubborn stains. Opalescence continues to lead in professional whitening treatments and is trusted by dentists and patients alike.

What Is the Opalescence Whitening Procedure?

Opalescence Boost in-office delivers a white smile fast. The 40 percent hydrogen peroxide gel is chemically activated, so you will not need hot or uncomfortable LED lights. A unique, double-syringe configuration activates the professional-grade whitening formula right before application, guaranteeing every drop’s freshness and effectiveness. Just two or three 20-minute whitening sessions will leave you with a dazzling smile!

If you would rather whiten your teeth at home, we are happy to provide custom whitening trays tailored to your smile. We offer five product concentrations, allowing you to whiten your smile whenever you want, day or night. From 15-minute whitening treatments to overnight options, Opalescence will easily fit your unique needs and lifestyle. The safe and highly effective whitening system delivers professional results from the comfort of your home.
