What is KoR Teeth Whitening?

Team Cosmetic Dentistry, Teeth Whitening

We refer to teeth as our pearly whites, but all too often they aren’t really white at all. For one reason or another, our teeth become stained and discolored. Showing a full smile just doesn’t quite have the same impact. 

Dr. Rod Kurthy is the cosmetic dentist that created the KoR system to help his patients achieve amazing results – and feel confident in smiling again. What is the KoR Whitening System? Let’s take a look at how it works. 

The Need for Teeth Whitening

Nobody sets out to stain their teeth, but it happens. Sometimes we don’t have control over it, other times we do. So, what causes discoloration of the teeth? 

  • Consuming certain beverages and foods, such as coffee, tea, red white, soda, berries, citrus fruits, beets, tomatoes, and other acidic foods. 
  • Poor dental hygiene. 
  • Tobacco use, whether chewed or smoked. 
  • Certain medications and health conditions. 
  • Genetics and aging. 

It happens to the best of us, but it doesn’t mean we have to settle for stained teeth. The KoR Whitening System can un-do any damage that has been caused, leaving you a bright white clean slate going forward. Taking the time to understand what may have caused your staining and discoloration in the past allows you the chance to make changes. Your teeth whitening investment will last even longer. 

How the KoR System Works

The KoR Whitening System is a professional system that is used both in the office and at home. You will get your first treatment in the dental chair and the remainder of the treatment will consist of wearing trays of KoR whitening gel for 6 to 10 hours each night for 14 consecutive nights. While it may seem that it takes longer than other in-office-only whitening systems, KoR actually does some extensive cleaning of stains and debris from your teeth – leaving you with the brightest smile imaginable.

Unlike over-the-counter at-home whitening, this system uses a professional-grade advanced formula and comfortable, flexible vinyl trays that fit your teeth well. With their design, the bleaching agent remains in contact with the teeth and they seal at the gum line to prevent saliva from diluting the formula. 

Your dentist will supply you with everything you need for a successful whitening experience. Should you have any questions or concerns, your dental team is right there with you throughout the entire two-week treatment. 

Advantages of KoR Teeth Whitening

As we mentioned, the KoR Whitening System is much different than other options on the market – providing you with a long list of advantages. 

  • Highly Potent Formula. The whitening gel is highly potent and requires refrigeration so that it maintains its effectiveness. This gel is to be refrigerated at all times – until it is placed on the trays that hug your teeth. In other words, it is always fresh and ready to whiten.
  • Less Sensitivity. Many times, whitening can cause teeth sensitivity for a short time after treatment. This can be mild for some, excruciating for others. KoR Whitening System is designed to keep this from happening, thanks to its desensitizing liquid that is applied before treatment.
  • KoR-Seal Whitening Trays. The professional design of these trays keeps the whitening gel exactly where it needs to be – without getting diluted by saliva, squeezed out, or burning your gums. 
  • Boost Your Confidence. Finally, using the KoR Whitening System means having a smile you can be proud of.
