Whiten your smile on your own time with this effective professional teeth whitening solution.

Teeth Whitening ResultsWho says the only way to get a whiter smile is to come into the dentist’s office? Sure, in-office whitening can certainly give you the results you want quickly, but our Green Valley, Henderson, NV, cosmetic dentists Dr. Brad Wilbur and Dr. Emily Ishkanian also believe that you should be able to get amazing and professional whitening results from the comfort of your own home without breaking the bank. This is why we are pleased to offer KOR professional at-home teeth whitening.

How does KOR bleaching work?

KOR offers one of the most effective and powerful ways to whiten your smile from the comfort of your own home. Tooth enamel is porous, which means that the bleaching gel is able to safely penetrate the enamel to break up stain molecules.

Our Green Valley, Henderson, NV, dentist will first take molds of your teeth. These molds will then be sent to a KOR dental lab where they will make customized bleaching trays that will fit perfectly over your teeth. The trays will be worn while you sleep for about two weeks, after which you will come back in for a final consultation to make sure that you are happy with the results.

How long will my results last with KOR whitening?

This is entirely up to you. While in-office whitening results can last several months and even up to a year or more if you continue to maintain good oral hygiene, if you decide to keep up with periodic home whitening care with KOR, you could end up with permanently whiter results.

Will at-home whitening whiten my dental crowns, fillings, or veneers?

This is a question we get often, since many people do at least have a dental filling. While KOR professional whitening is powerful and can get teeth several shades whiter in just two weeks (it can even remove stubborn stains caused by antibiotics), it will not be able to lighten artificial structures like crowns and fillings.

Are you interested in getting a whiter smile while kicking back and relaxing at home? Do you have an important job interview or special occasion coming up that requires a whiter smile? If you said “yes” then it’s time to call Green Valley Dental Care in Henderson, NV, to find out how KOR teeth whitening can help you.

You shouldn’t ever be embarrassed by your smile.Cosmetic contouring

If minor aesthetic issues are making you feel self-conscious about smiling, then isn’t it time you considered how our Henderson, NV, family dentists, Dr. Brad Wilbur and Dr. Emily Ishkanian, could help change all this? If you’ve been shying away from cosmetic dentistry because you think it has to be expensive or invasive, think again! We may actually be able to improve the shape or size of your smile with a completely non-invasive method known as cosmetic contouring.

What is cosmetic contouring?

This treatment is most often recommended if you are only looking to fix minor issues with the shape or length of a tooth. Dental contouring is a technique in which our Henderson dentists will shave and reshape a tooth by removing small amounts of enamel. Cosmetic contouring is pretty straightforward, painless and non-invasive. It’s also completed in just one visit, which makes it a popular cosmetic option for those always on the go.

What are the benefits of getting cosmetic contouring?

As you may be able to tell, cosmetic contouring will enhance and boost your smile’s appearance right away. This treatment only takes about a half an hour to complete, so you won’t have to keep coming back multiple times in order to get the results you want.

Is cosmetic contouring right for me?

If you are only looking to make minor changes to your smile’s appearance then you could very well be a great candidate for this cosmetic treatment. A lot will depend on how much you want to alter one or more teeth and the results you are looking for. If cosmetic contouring doesn’t end up being the right option for you, we can recommend other options like dental veneers or orthodontic treatment to improve your smile.

Do you have questions about cosmetic contouring? Want to find out if this treatment will be able to correct your dental flaws? If so, then it’s time you called Green Valley Dental Center in Henderson, NV, to find out more about cosmetic contouring.
