Like many Americans, you don’t consider your day officially started until you’ve had at least one (or maybe three) cups of coffee. While this helps you shake off that morning haziness, your love for caffeine is starting to really show on your teeth, as they have noticeably yellowed. So, you make the mistake of plugging “teeth whitening” into a search engine, literally giving you millions of results. Instead of wasting your time reading about thousands of different products, you really only need to know about two: KOR and Zoom! Teeth Whitening. These are professional treatments proven to eliminate even the most stubborn stains, and they are both offered by Dr. Mohr here at Smile Creations. So, which one is your best bet when it comes to teeth whitening on Long Island? Read on to see what Dr. Mohr has to say.
Trust the Experts
Like we touched on above, there are a lot of choices for teeth whitening treatments out there, and you can go pick many of them up from the store right now, so why go through the trouble of visiting a dentist to brighten your smile?
The truth is that most of these off-the-shelf products are very underpowered and can only eliminate the least set-in stains. While they might provide a little improvement, it won’t be anything to write home about, and you’ll likely feel as if you’ve wasted your time and money. Instead, the bleaching products I use in my office have a much higher concentration, plus I’ll be able to tailor your whitening treatment to your specific needs to deliver the best possible results. You certainly won’t find that at the store!
KOR vs. Zoom! Whitening
That headline is a bit deceiving, to be honest, because it isn’t a matter of whether KOR is better than Zoom! or not, but rather, which one is better for a particular patient.
KOR Whitening combines both an in-office procedure as well as take home trays to deliver a very comprehensive treatment, enabling it to remove even the deepest stains, including those caused by certain medications. It also contains compounds intended to strengthen the enamel as it whitens, which helps cut down on post-treatment sensitivity. Between the in-office and take-home phases, the entire treatment takes a few weeks to complete, but the results are second to none.
With Zoom!, however, you can get everything you need in a single appointment. We simply clean your teeth, apply the powerful bleaching gel, and expose it to a special low-UV light that helps activate it. From there, it literally breaks the molecular bonds that hold dental stains together. The treatment only takes about 45 minutes and can make your teeth up to 8 shades whiter.
Which One is Right For You?
It really depends on your situation! Do you have a wedding or another important event coming up soon, and you want your smile to really shine? If so, then Zoom! might be the better choice. Do you have really persistent stains that other treatments haven’t been able to take care of, or are your teeth really sensitive? In that case, I would recommend KOR. When you come to Smile Creations for teeth whitening, just explain your situation, and I’ll easily be able to suggest which treatment will deliver the kind of results you want.
Smile & Save
I truly believe that both KOR and Zoom! are fantastic treatments, so much so that we’re currently running specials for both of them! No matter which one you choose, you can instantly save $100 simply by coming to visit us here at Smile Creations. It’s just that easy! You can sign up for either offer right through our website as well:
In either case, I can promise if you come to see us in search of a whiter smile, you’re guaranteed to walk out of our office with a set of teeth that always lights up the room!
