This patient had a couple challenges going on. Here’s how we solved them for her.
Her teeth were gray from tetracyline staining.
Usually, we can not whiten tetracycline staining, because the stain is actually deep inside the tooth.
With KOR whitening, we were able to whiten her smile by 8 shades, without sensitivity issues.
This is truly unheard of.
She has extremely sensitive teeth from past enamel erosion and wear, but she needed bonding.
Another dentist had attempted to repair the erosion earlier this year, but she was unhappy with the work.
She also did not want any enamel to be removed.
Without even numbing the teeth, we added the lost enamel back to the tooth using biocompatible resin.
Now her teeth are whiter, they have a better shape, and they are less sensitive!
