Teeth Whitening Q & A

What makes teeth discolored or dull?

There are a number of reasons why your teeth might become dull or discolored, including:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Medications, like certain antipsychotics or antihistamines
  • Early exposure to tetracycline antibiotics
  • Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco
  • Eating too many foods with dark pigments, like berries or tomato sauces
  • Drinking too many beverages with dark pigments, like coffee or red wine

Your teeth also naturally change color as you age. The hard outer layer (enamel) wears down and gets thinner over time, while the soft inner layer (dentin) slowly turns yellow. 

The thinner enamel allows more of the yellow dentin to show through, which can give you a discolored smile.

How do you whiten my teeth?

Greene Street Dental uses the revolutionary KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System to give you the bright white smile you’ve always wanted. They offer two types of whitening:

At-home whitening

With at-home whitening, the team at Greene Street Dental uses an impression of your mouth to make you custom-fitted whitening trays. You put the special KöR whitening solution in the trays and wear them on your teeth for a certain amount of time each day. You’ll have a noticeably whiter smile within just a matter of weeks.

In-office whitening

In-office whitening can make your smile shine with a single office visit that takes just over an hour. Your dentist uses special tools to keep your lips, gums, and cheeks protected, then carefully applies the KöR whitening solution to your teeth. 

The whitening solution goes to work while you wait in the chair, giving you an instantly improved smile as soon as you leave the office.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

Some whitening products can leave your teeth slightly more sensitive after your treatment, but the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System was specifically engineered to produce little to no sensitivity in your teeth.

If you still experience sensitivity after your whitening treatment, the team can give you a toothpaste that’s designed to reduce any discomfort.
