What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening products help brighten teeth that have been darkened or stained by either food, tobacco, injury, or age. There are a variety of in-office and take-home teeth whitening products that can help reduce or remove these stains.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening, takes place during a series of appointments at a dentist’s office. Advantages of in-office teeth whitening over take-home whitening include:
- Safe and simple
- Professionally performed
- Less sensitivity
KöR® Whitening Deep Bleaching System
The KöR® Whitening Deep Bleaching System features a bleaching gel that restores a tooth’s ability to absorb oxygen, which helps the gel to dissolve the stain molecules.
This system can be used by essentially anyone who wants to whiten the color of their teeth. Patients ranging from 14 to 90 years of age have been able to achieve great results.
KöR® Whitening Process
The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System involves creating molds of a patient’s teeth, which are then used to make custom bleaching trays. Since they are custom-made for each patient, these trays are comfortable, and the correct fit helps them seal the gel inside.
Most patients do not experience any pain or discomfort during treatment since the trays are custom-fitted for each patient’s mouth. Also, the whitening gel is composed of materials that are designed to eliminate any risk of sensitivity.
KöR® Bleaching System Results
Following treatment, patients may experience tooth whitening of 16 or more shades. The results of KöR Whitening should be permanent as long as patients follow the recommended at-home maintenance. Drinking coffee and red wine, or using tobacco, should not affect the color of the teeth.
KöR treatment is considered safe for all patients, and poses no major risks. It is important to note that crowns, fillings or veneers may need to be replaced since bleach can not whiten prosthetic materials.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening Trays
Take-home whitening solutions can improve the color of your teeth. These kits are less expensive, yet just as effective as, in-office treatments. Dr. DeStefano can provide patients with whitening powder and whitening gel, which can help improve the appearance of teeth over just a few days.
