Professional tooth whitening is a perfect way to remove yellow stains or brown discoloration that can detract from a beautiful smile. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular non-invasive dental cosmetic procedures because it improves your appearance and evens make you look youthful. Our patients in Mt. Pleasant, SC enjoy immediate benefits with a whiter, bright smile. 

At East Cooper Smiles, we offer a top-of-the-line professional teeth whitening treatment, KOR.

Why should you choose the dentist over in-house treatments?
A visit in any major grocery store shows entire aisles dedicated to bleaching gels and trays, but are they just as good as a professional service? 

In short, you may be wasting your time and money by buying a DIY whitening kit. Professional dentists have access to a higher level of peroxide, which is the active ingredient in the whitening gel. Additionally, if you have any dental issues, like cavities or tooth decay, that need to be treated to get the best outcome—your dentist will be able to address these dental issues. Improper application of bleaching kits might even ruin your enamel, making your stains worse than ever. 

At East Cooper Smiles, Dr. Annan uses KOR whitening, which employs high-impact gel and sealing trays to remove deep stains. KOR is proven to work on every kind of severe tooth discoloration.

How is KOR different from other teeth whiteners?

  • Refrigeration—most bleaching chemicals break down, meaning they lose their potency at room temperature. KOR maintains the perfect temperature to stop it from breaking down, making KOR gels incredibly potent. 
  • KOR Trays—KOR trays are tightly sealed to your gum line, ensuring that saliva and other agents don't come in to destroy the active ingredients. With KOR trays, you can sleep knowing that your teeth whitening is working effectively. Traditional store-bought teeth bleaching trays break down quickly due to the saliva that leaks through. 

If you are in Mt. Pleasant, SC, and have an upcoming fairytale wedding, or a much-anticipated reunion happening soon; consider polishing your appearance with a simple dental treatment. Call Dr. Annan to schedule your dental procedure that melts years off your presence and polishes your smile.
