Goodbye Stained Teeth! | KöR Whitening
A survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry revealed that 80% of Americans would love to have whiter teeth. We are excited to announce that we now offer KöR® Whitening System, widely regarded by cosmetic dentists around the world as the most effective and reliable professional whitening system on the market.
Not only is it very effective, but it has also been shown to have very low, and most frequently no sensitivity for the majority of patients. Best of all, with KöR Whitening, patients don’t even have to give up their favorite coffee, tea, or red wine, and they can still have brilliant white teeth for the rest of their lives.
The KöR Whitening System requires patients to adhere to a very strict procedure. “You can’t deviate from the protocol one little bit or you won’t see the WOW results,” says Dr. Warren Woodruff.
The procedure begins with meticulously constructed KöR-SealTM Whitening Trays. For the next two weeks, you wear your whitening trays each night while you sleep. The result is more than six hours of whitening activity, compared to the 20-30 minutes of whitening activity found with other whitening systems.
The final step is a one-hour in-office whitening, which kicks the whiteness up even more, and more importantly helps to “set” the whiteness more permanently. Within two weeks your teeth are beautifully white. The great news is that anyone from the age of 14 to 104 makes a great whitening candidate.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT
KoR® IN-OFFICE WHITENING
•How does the KoR® Whitening system work?
Molds of your teeth will be made to fabricate your own unique, ultra-comfortable KoR-Seal™ whitening trays. You and your dentist will select which level of KoR Whitening is the proper fit for you. Most patients wear their KoR-Seal Whitening Trays at home for two weeks while they sleep. You will then have one or two simple whitening visits in the dental office.
•Why does KoR® Whitening work so well?
The KoR Whitening System works by restoring your teeth’s youthful ability to absorb oxygen. The oxygen from its whitening gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving and removing stain molecules.
•How long does KoR® Whitening last?
Unlike other whitening methods, with easy periodic home maintenance, KoR Whitening is entirely permanent.
•Is it safe?
Whitening products have been clinically studied for more than three decades, and safely used on millions of patients without harm to teeth or gums. KoR® Whitening is considered entirely safe.
•Is there pain or discomfort with KoR® Whitening?
Many have experienced pain during teeth whitening. Maybe you’ve experienced it yourself. After years of research, development and clinical testing, Dr. Rod Kurthy, the inventor of KoR Whitening, introduced a whitening gel that, in most cases, produces little to no sensitivity. As a result, most patients have no discomfort from whitening when using this system. We have found KoR Whitening to be the gentlest whitening system available.
• Does it matter how old I am?
Teeth are safely whitened at any age, however the ideal age to whiten teeth is about 14 because the permanent teeth are usually all in the mouth by that age. The younger teeth are, the more brilliantly they whiten. However, KoR® Whitening rejuvenates even older teeth back to their youthful ability to whiten incredibly well, even if you’re 90 years old.
• How white will my teeth get?
KoR® Whitening whitens teeth dramatically, often lightening them 16 shades or more. Although everyone is different, with the proper KoR Whitening System, all teeth will have stunning results. KoR even whitens tetracycline-stained teeth significantly, which was previously thought to be impossible!
• Will my teeth look too white and unnatural?
No. Real teeth can’t look unnatural, they just look beautifully white. If you have seen people with ultra-white, fake-looking teeth, these were probably false teeth, teeth with porcelain crowns, or porcelain veneers that may have been made too white and too opaque. With KoR® Whitening you’ll get the ideal shade that’s right for you.
• Will my crowns, veneers or fillings whiten too?
No. If you have any of these on your front teeth, you may need to replace some of them after whitening.
• How will coffee, tea, smoking and red wine affect my teeth after whitening?
With your easy home maintenance, these staining foods will have no effect on the long-term brilliant color of your teeth.
•Will the whitening trays be uncomfortable, difficult to sleep with, or will the whitening gel leak out of the trays?
No. KoR-Seal™ whitening trays are very different. They’re comfortable – because they’re thin and form-fitting, you’ll probably forget they’re even in your mouth. They’re convenient – by wearing these only while you sleep, it doesn’t interfere with your busy day. Also, unlike regular whitening trays, KoR-Seal whitening trays seal the whitening gel inside the tray, preventing the gel from quickly leaking into your mouth.
