How Does KöR® Teeth Whitening Work?
The first part of your KöR® treatment begins with a professional in-office whitening. When you arrive at our practice, we will take detailed impressions of your smile. These impressions will be used to fabricate custom whitening trays that will fit comfortably around your teeth and help to prevent the gel from coming into contact with your gum tissue. A member of our staff will carefully line the inside of each tray with professional-strength KöR® whitening gel, and you will wear them for roughly 30 minutes. During this time, bleaching agents will penetrate enamel and break up stain-causing molecules.
Once this treatment is complete, you will return home with your trays and the KöR® whitening gel. You will apply a small amount of gel to the trays and wear them for roughly 20 minutes each day, stopping after two weeks. This will help to extend the results of treatment so that you can continue to experience a bright, sparkling smile.
When compared to over-the-counter products or other professional whitening treatments, the KöR® system offers several unique benefits.
Advantages of Using the KöR® System
When compared to over-the-counter products or other professional whitening treatments, the KöR® system offers several unique benefits. First, most whitening gels are not refrigerated, and the heat they are exposed to in warehouses and during shipping can cause the active ingredients to become less potent. With KöR®, the whitening gel is kept refrigerated from the time it is manufactured until it is administered at our dental office. The KöR® whitening solution is also specially formulated to help minimize sensitivity. In addition, other professional whitening systems require patients to undergo repeat visits every few months as the results fade. The KöR® system will allow you to perform touch-ups on your own, without the need to return to our office.
How You Can Help to Avoid Tooth Discoloration
Although the KöR® system can brighten your smile by several shades, it is important to understand that no teeth whitening treatment offers permanent results. Fortunately, there are some strategies you can follow to help prevent discoloration. Since maintaining good oral health will help to protect your teeth from decay, you should brush after every meal and floss at least once daily. If you are unable to brush after a meal, rinsing your mouth with water can also help. Whenever possible, try to avoid or minimize your consumption of certain foods and drinks that can stain enamel, such as coffee, red wine, berries, or soda. Finally, smoking can greatly compromise the appearance of teeth and weaken your overall oral health, so we recommend trying to quit the habit.
