Professionally Pearly Whites for the New Year

Treat Your Smile to a Deep Bleaching Like No Other

It cannot be denied that an extra bling in your smile makes people notice you. So as you kick off your New Year’s resolutions, you might consider adding this unique teeth whitening to your list and put some punch in your pearlies.


Not found at every dentist’s fingertips. In Birmingham, you can find this unusually powerful teeth whitening option at Greystone Smile Design. “Like most dentists, we’ve been frustrated at not getting the whitening results our patients want,” says Dr. Trenton Buchanan. “But the Kor Deep Bleaching system solves all our concerns.”


Whitens even tetracycline-stained teeth. “Everyone tells these patients that whitening can’t be done, and they’ll have to get veneers. But the first Deep Bleaching we did on a tetracycline patient, their teeth improved by 8 to 10 shades,” says Dr. Buchanan. Age and congenital teeth stains don’t hold any barriers to this system either.


The trays actually fit. “These are the perfect trays, and they’re what make your teeth just unbelievably white,” says Dr. Buchanan. Using highly detailed impressions, the company creates a fit so perfect to your teeth that the solution stays active at full strength for almost six hours each night. “With other trays, saliva leaks in, so you’re only getting about two to three hours of bleaching.”


No discomfort. “One of our patients recently told me that he started eating breakfast before he realized he still had his trays in,” laughs Dr. Buchanan. “It’s the superbly tight fit. It makes for a comfortable fit and keeps the solution away from your gums.”


It’s cool. Even room temperature drains the potency from a bleaching solution. At Greystone, the solution stays cold during shipping, in their office cooler, and then into your fridge. “I don’t think anybody else pays attention to this detail,” points out Dr. Buchanan. So unlike with other whitening systems, your teeth receive the full power of the 16% carbamide peroxide.


How it’s done. With Deep Bleaching, you use the trays to apply the solution every night for 2 weeks. Deeper stained teeth may require up to 8 weeks. After a final hour-long office visit, where you get 3 short treatments of a more powerful solution, you use the trays as needed for maintenance. It’s a one-time process, fit for anyone from 19 to 90, at the cost of less than one veneer.
