The Benefits of

In-Office whitening

In-office whitening is done by Dr. Tuan Vo at our office in San Jose. We use KOR whitening products for effective, comfortable whitening without the need for lights or lasers. He will clean your teeth, apply a protectant to your gums, and use retractors to keep your oral tissue away from your teeth. Then, he will apply the KOR whitening gel, leave it on for a few minutes, and then rinse it away. This process may be repeated multiple times to achieve your desired results.

The primary benefit of in-office whitening is that it is very fast, and can usually whiten your teeth up to 5 shades in just 1 appointment. This makes it ideal for a special occasion like a wedding or a photo shoot.

the benefits of

take-home whitening

With our KOR take-home whitening kit, you’ll come in for an appointment at our office to have a set of custom whitening trays created for your teeth. When your trays arrive at our office in a few weeks, you’ll pick them up and get the whitening gel and instructions for their use from Dr. Tuan Vo. Then, you’ll whiten your teeth at home over a period of a few weeks.

The best benefit of take-home whitening is that it lets you avoid spending too much time in the dentist’s chair. You can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, on your own schedule. The whitening results will happen more gradually so it will be less obvious that you’ve had your teeth whitened, which some patients prefer. You can also use a combination of KOR in-office and take-home whitening for rapid, powerful results.

the benefits of

chemical whitening

IN addition to our KOR whitening treatments, we also offer chemical whitening for take-home whitening treatments. This means that your teeth are whitened exclusively by hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, without the aid of a UV (ultraviolet) light. 

Chemical whitening is less likely to cause sensitivity, so it’s a good option for patients who may already have sensitive teeth, and are not good candidates for UV whitening. It’s also just as effective as UV whitening, though it usually takes a bit longer to deliver the same results.

the benefits of

uv whitening

UV whitening also makes use of chemical whiteners like hydrogen or carbamide peroxide, but also incorporates a UV light. This light excites these molecules when they’re applied to your teeth, and enhances whitening performance.

UV light delivers faster results and can treat more severe stains compared to chemical whitening alone, so it’s a good option if you have seriously stained teeth. However, it’s not ideal for patients with sensitive teeth. If you have sensitive teeth, discuss this with Dr. Tuan Vo before you choose a teeth whitening method at AT Dental Care.
