Whitening - the 1311 Jackson Ave Dental way

There are so many whitening products and systems out there but we've made our definitive choice after trying out many of them. We are excited to offer the long island city community KoR Whitening.

What makes KoR different?

  • KoR is the only teeth whitening system that gets shipped to us in an ice box.

    • Fact: The efficacy of whitening starts to decrease as soon as the material is exposed to heat!

  • The in office product is also separated into 3 components instead of the traditional 2.

    • Fact: The less premixed it is the fresher it will be​

The ice box to keep it all cool! We store everything in our own fridge at our dental office.

So how does this all work?

The entire teeth whitening protocol will go as follow:

  1. We take impressions (molds) of your teeth and make custom whitening trays for you.

  2. You pick up your at home whitening kit and whiten for 14 days straight. Be sure to use the desensitizer!

  3. Come back to us for an in office session. Expect to spend about 1.5 hours

  4. Do a once a month maintenance at home or how ever frequently you feel need.

  5. For best results, try to minimize staining liquids. If it can stain your white carpet, it will stain your pearly white teeth!

Why would you want or need teeth whitening?

Typically over time, our teeth do tend to get darker. A lot of it has to do with our eating and drinking habits, which cause extrinsic stains. Some of the biggest culprits are coffee and red wine. Many of us drink coffee in the morning to get our day going and then unwind at night time with a glass of red in the evening.

So the amount of staining will vary depending on the quantity and frequency of these staining foods/liquids. You may need to whitening more frequently if you do!

Remember: If it can stain your white rug, it can stain your teeth!
