Teeth Whitening

Get Your Confidence Back

Smile Brighter with Professional Whitening

Our lifestyles are not conducive to bright, white smiles. From our morning coffee to our evening glass of wine – and everything in between – stains and buildup can turn our confident smiles into ones we hide even from ourselves! While Dr. Ellison offers many cosmetic dentistry treatments, a beautiful smile may be as easy as choosing professional teeth whitening in Houston. A brilliant white smile can be obtained easily with many methods. Dr. Ellison recommends the following for getting your teeth to their whitest (and healthiest):

KöR Power Whitening System: Dr. Ellison’s team is proud to offer the most amazing KöR bleaching system and is now a KöR Whitening Premier Provider! It gives us the best results we have ever seen. Even patients with darkly stained teeth are getting results that they never thought possible.

This whitening system gives our patients AMAZING results above and beyond any other system we have ever used. We start with a digital scan that is sent to the lab electronically and a customized deep bleaching tray is made for you that has a well for the bleach on the front of each tooth. This allows us to give you a stronger at-home bleach along with a desensitizer that not only provides outstanding results but also has minima, for tooth sensitivity. Once you have done the at-home bleaching for 2 weeks, you come in for a 2-hour appointment for the in-office portion. This KöR bleach is a combination bleach that works to give you the whitest teeth possible.

Tetracycline Whitening: Even patients with dark tetracycline-stained teeth that never thought they could have white teeth without veneers have had results they cannot believe. While these stains are difficult to remove, a 6-8 week process with the KöR Whitening System used nightly at home and a 1.5-hour in-office bleaching session at the end can rewind the time to pre-tetracycline treatment.

Opalescence In-office Bleaching: This in-office whitening takes 1-2 hours and will accomplish the same results in 2 hours as you can achieve after weeks of bleaching at home. We are able to do this because the whitening gel we use in the office is a stronger bleach than what you can use at home. It is stronger in the office because we are able to isolate the teeth and keep the gel from coming into contact with the gums and lips and tongue and monitor it closely during the 1-2 hours.

Opalescence At-home Bleaching Gel: For patients who already have bleaching trays or clear aligners or clear plastic retainers, we offer Opalescence bleaching gel that can be applied into the trays and worn at night or during the day for 1-2 hours to whiten the teeth over several weeks or to maintain a professional in-office whitening longer

Improve Your Smile with KöR Bleaching

KöR is the most gentle and effective teeth whitening system in the world.

The process is easy:

  1. Dr. Ellison will send you home with two syringes of home whitening gel and deep bleaching trays that help the gel to stay in place – this includes a desensitizing therapy to help prevent pain or discomfort in sensitive teeth.
  2. You will use the trays for two weeks at home on your own schedule.
  3. After the two weeks, Dr. Ellison will do a 1.5-hour in-office whitening session.
  4. You will walk out of our office with a beautiful, white smile that will last for months!

Teeth Whitening FAQs

The KöR Whitening process is simple. Schedule a quick appointment for a digital scan of your upper and lower arches to ensure the right sizing for your bleaching trays. Take the deep bleaching trays and whitening gel home to use for two weeks and use nightly. You will then come back for a 1 ½ hour whitening session in the office. Within three weeks, you will have a whiter, brighter, more beautiful smile!

Once you bleach anything, you take the color out and the color that comes out is out permanently. Then the question of how long it lasts really depends on what you eat and drink on a regular basis after that. For example, if you drink a lot of red wine, coffee, dark sodas, dark foods, red sauces, and grape jelly, your teeth will gain new stains more quickly than if you are drinking white wine, water, and sprite.

Whitening DOES NOT DAMAGE your enamel at all. If it did, we would not use it. We are here to keep your teeth and smile as healthy as possible.

The only preparation would be to remove tempting foods and drinks that would not be allowed during the 2-week bleaching process that are dark and would cause staining during the process.


I got my teeth bleached with the new KOR super bleach system at Dr. Ellison’s office and it’s awesome! I love my white smile and her team is the best! I love how happy they always are to see me!
