At Dunes Dental Services, we use the KöR Whitening system, which was invented by internationally renowned cosmetic dentist and whitening science expert Dr. Rod Kurthy. Of all of the available whitening options, we find that KöR Whitening is the most reliable and effective one. It is also the only whitening system that is recognized as effective against tetracycline-stained teeth (which previously was thought to be impossible to correct). Results can be achieved with little to no sensitivity. If you’re looking for a brighter smile, please contact us today to schedule an appointment.
The following FAQ provides more details about the KöR Whitening system:
Why does KöR Whitening work so well?
The KöR Whitening system works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen. The oxygen from its whitening gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving stain molecules.
How long does KoR Whitening last?
Unlike other whitening methods, with easy periodic home maintenance, KöR Whitening is entirely permanent.
Is there or discomfort with KöR Whitening?
Many have experienced pain during teeth whitening. Maybe you’ve experienced it yourself. After several years of research, development and clinical testing, the inventor of KöR 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. Testing has shown that patients who do feel some sensitivity using KöR Whitening typically feel no more than 10% of the sensitivity they’d feel from other whitening gels.
Does it matter how old I am?
The ideal age to whiten teeth is about 14. The younger teeth are, the more brilliantly they whiten. However, KöR 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?
KöR Whitening whitens teeth dramatically, often lightening them 16 shades or more. Although everyone is different, with the proper KöR Whitening System, all teeth will have stunning results. It even whitens tetracycline-stained teeth significantly.
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 veneers that may have been made too white and too opaque. 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 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. KöR-Seal whitening trays are very different. They’re comfortable because they’re thin and form-fitting; you’ll 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, KöR-Seal whitening trays seal the whitening gel inside the tray, preventing the gel from leaking into your mouth.
How does the KoR Whitening System work?
Molds of your teeth will be made to fabricate your own unique, ultra comfortable KöR-Seal whitening trays. Dr. Alina will work with you to select which level of KöR Whitening is the proper fit for you. You will normally wear your KöR-Seal trays at home for two weeks while you sleep. Depending on your selection, you may also have one or two simple whitening visits at our dental office.
