KöR Whitening

ZOOM WHITENING Whitening gels can yield rapid results for achieving a brighter smile, particularly when combined with a dental visit. Dentists have access to professional-grade products not available over the counter, thanks to their specialized training and expertise. Moreover, following your dentist's guidance, there are also take-home options available to maintain your whitening treatment.

What is KöR Whitening?

KöR Whitening employs custom trays designed to enhance teeth whitening using hydrogen peroxide, resulting in a whiter smile. These trays allow for a more effective and extended application period without being affected by saliva, which can otherwise break down the active whitening ingredients.

In fact, when paired with KöR gels, these trays can deliver 6-10 hours of whitening action, effectively eliminating debris from both the enamel surface and within its interstitial spaces.

Unlike some other whitening methods, KöR doesn't rely on lasers or additional lights. It provides a range of treatment options, from take-home kits to in-office procedures, making it suitable for patients with varying whitening objectives.

KöR's delivery system is unique in that it uses three barrels to store ingredients, allowing more whitening agents to remain inert until they're mixed, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of the bleaching agents used.

Addressing Sensitivity

Many individuals experience sensitivity during whitening treatments. KöR addresses this issue by applying a desensitizing method before whitening. This approach seals the openings of dentinal tubules during the whitening process, preventing sensitivity, rather than merely attempting to treat its symptoms. By sealing these tubules, the whitening agent cannot come into contact with the tooth pulp, where sensitivity typically occurs. This method and application can be used in both take-home and in-office treatments.

Long-Lasting Whitening

The robust and less contaminated application of the KöR method ensures enduring results by saturating stained particles with its bleaching agent, which subsequently breaks down larger, pigmented particles into smaller, colorless ones.

To maintain lasting results, regular dental cleanings and check-ups are essential. Typically, a six-month cleaning schedule is recommended to keep your teeth at their whitest, though it's advisable to consult with your dentist to determine the ideal frequency of visits. These cleanings prevent the buildup of calculus, which can trap staining particles against the teeth, leaving them with no option but to return to the spaces within your enamel. Many dental practices offer in-house dental plans to make preventive care affordable for uninsured patients, while those with dental insurance usually receive these cleanings at no additional cost.

Naturally, maintaining a bright, white smile also involves regular brushing and flossing.

It's crucial to consult your dentist before commencing any tooth whitening treatment. Discuss any past issues with sensitivity, your desired level of whiteness, and any other concerns you may have. Your dentist can work with you to achieve the most natural-looking, bright smile possible.
