KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System: Something to Smile About Posted on November 5, 2012 by trinhdm in Teeth Whitening, Dentist Patients who have whiter, brighter teeth get a major self-esteem boost. Unfortunately, age, medications and certain foods and beverages can leave people with dingy, yellowing teeth. An innovative teeth whitening system known as KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching helps patients restore their pearliest whites. Oxygen molecules, which dissolve stains and discoloration on the teeth, are the key to any teeth whitening treatment. With the KöR System, your teeth absorb oxygen molecules from the whitening gel, improving their hue by as many as 16 shades. When patients use the KöR System, they’ll have an initial appointment at which the dentist will take measurements and impressions for plastic trays that contain the whitening gel. This system also requires a follow-up visit to make sure that the trays fit properly and for instructions on how to use the system. For the first round of treatment, patients wear the trays and bleaching gel at night for two weeks. You’ll then see the dentist one more time for a check on the results. Patients can achieve long-term maintenance of their results with simple touch-ups they can do at home. If you’ve used a tray-based whitening system in the past, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the KöR trays are. They’re thin, flexible and form-fitted, so you’ll barely even notice they’re there. The trays also do a better job at sealing in the gel so it won’t leak into your mouth. At the same time, the gel causes little, if any, sensitivity in patients. When considering KöR Whitening, it’s important to recognize that dental work like crowns and fillings will not change color in response to the whitening gel. If you have dental work pending, you’ll want to take that into consideration for the timing of your teeth whitening. For optimal lifelong results, patients should actually have their teeth whitened when they’re in their mid-teens. However, patients of all ages can realize good aesthetic outcomes with KöR Whitening. Whether you want to look your best for a big event or just want to make a long-term improvement in your smile’s appearance, consider KöR Whitening.
