Take a look in the mirror. Are your teeth dingy and discolored? Do they make you want to keep your mouth closed in photos? Are you tempted to avoid all the festivities and social events on your December calendar because you’re self-conscious about your smile?
You have your gift list. Now add one more name to it: your own.
That’s right, consider giving yourself a gift this year: one that will boost your confidence, dazzle everyone you meet, and make your smile shine in all of your holiday pictures — and beyond.
We are talking about the gift of dentist-supervised teeth whitening at Premier Dental of Bordentown, NJ. We offer two highly effective professional systems by KoR. One is done right in our office, the other you take home with you. But both deliver amazing, bright white results.

Say Goodbye to Stained Teeth
When your teeth are stained and discolored, you are definitely not looking your best. You look worn down, haggard, and maybe even older than you are. And who wants that? Stained teeth are not inevitable, though. While our smiles do tend to darken as we age, you can help prevent that from happening by avoiding certain foods and drinks:
- Wine — and surprisingly, not just red. White wine is also known to discolor teeth.
- Coffee, tea, and soda
- Dark berries like blueberries, blackberries, and cherries
- Tomato-based pasta sauce
- Balsamic vinegar
Practicing good oral hygiene and staying away from acidic foods like citrus helps keep your enamel nice and smooth — and more resistant to stubborn pigments.
If you must consume foods and drinks that will darken your smile, try to brush your teeth afterward. If that’s not possible, drink lots of water to keep your mouth clean.
Follow these practices after your teeth-whitening procedure, and your results are sure to last!
Don’t Bother with Drugstore Products
There’s a huge variety of over-the-counter teeth-whitening treatments available, from toothpastes to strips to gels. Some are similar in design to our system, in that they use a whitening gel held in your mouth with a tray. They trays that come with these products are not custom made, however, so they won’t be a perfect fit for your mouth. This means they may not be comfortable to wear and they may not cover your teeth. You also risk the gel spilling over onto your sensitive gums.
And drugstore kits contain much lower concentrations of active whitening ingredient than our KoR professional systems. They may not be work at all — or if they do, they will require a longer treatment duration, which may cause pain or sensitivity.
So don’t waste your time messing around with harsh, ineffective over-the-counter kits. Do it right the first time with professional whitening.
KoR will Transform Your Smile
At Premier Dental, we use KoR whitening systems. While one is done right in our office and the other you take home with you, they share the following benefits:
- They utilize trays that we custom mold for you right here at our Bordentown, NJ office. We create the trays from precise impressions of your mouth, so they fit perfectly and distribute the whitening gel evenly.
- The whitening gel is refrigerated to maintain maximum freshness and strength.
- The trays are designed to keep out saliva, which could dilute the gel.
- The gel’s active ingredients are kept separate until right before application.
When you come for your appointment, we will examine your teeth to make sure you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. We will then explain the pros and cons of the take-home vs. in-office treatment and help you come to a decision.
If you choose KoR’s take-home kit, you will take your custom trays and gel home to whiten at your convenience. You will wear the product for a prescribed amount of time each day for about two weeks. After that, periodic maintenance treatments should be all you require to keep your teeth looking great.
For the chairside system, you will get two procedures in our dental office, with periodic home treatments in between.
Whichever option you choose, you will end up with a gorgeous smile that makes you look younger and more vibrant.
