Over time, our teeth can develop discoloration due to the food we eat, our age, and our genetics. While toothpastes and over-the-counter products provide some benefits, they cannot deliver the superior results of professional dental treatments.To address dental staining, we offer both in-office and take-home whitening treatments for our patients’ convenience. For dramatic results, we use Kör® Whitening and Opalescence® solutions at our office, which can significantly brighten your smile in under one hour. At Bal Harbour Smiles in Miami Beach, FL, Dr. Yudah Ari Benmergui strives to help each of our patients achieve their ideal smiles.
Foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, and wine, can gradually darken the color of teeth and make them appear dull. Smoking and aging can also contribute to a faded, yellowed appearance. Effective whitening treatment can remove extrinsic stains and discoloration to lighten and brighten teeth for a radiant smile.
Dr. Benmergui offers two safe, professional teeth whitening products: KöR Whitening and Opalescence. During your consultation, we can determine which product and formula is best for you and offer tips to help you avoid dental sensitivity. We provides a preliminary exam before beginning any type of cosmetic treatment. When necessary, we may recommend periodontal treatment before starting the whitening process to ensure optimal results. In the rare case your discoloration cannot be treated with professional bleaching, we can help conceal unwanted stains with a beautiful dental crown.
Exceptional KöR Whitening can effectively lighten tetracycline (dark) stained teeth for a more youthful appearance. The patented KöR whitening gel dissolves stains at the molecular level, restoring the ability for your teeth to absorb oxygen.
KöR’s dual-activated, hydremide peroxide formulation completely breaks down large colored molecules to ultra-small colorless and white particles. Treatment yields dramatic results. With at-home maintenance once a month, you can prolong your bright, gleaming smile.

Most patients begin KöR Whitening treatment with an in-office jump start treatment. We can create a custom mold of your teeth and provide you with a two-week supply of KöR gel. Simply apply the gel to your dental trays and use as directed. You can choose daytime applications or overnight treatments.
We also offer Opalescence in-office whitening as well as take-home kits. The active ingredients in Opalescence treats both extrinsic (exterior) and intrinsic stains.
