Teeth Whitening

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth.

The most popular method is using a home teeth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

How does KöR Whitening Work?

Historically, whitening system companies have promised ease-of-use, outstanding results and happy patients. But you’ve probably experienced a gap between what’s promised and what’s delivered. Most dentists providing teeth whitening have been frustrated with a lack of predictability, effectiveness, and longevity of effect, as well as complaints of sensitivity by patients. KöR is different than traditional teeth whitening as it utilizes refrigerated peroxide gels that have special properties and are able to revive the tooth’s natural ability to absorb oxygen. KöR teeth whitening takes place over the course of several weeks by wearing a customized whitening tray at home followed by one final in-office whitening procedure.


KöR is the first in the world to refrigerate an entire line of teeth whitening gels from the instant of manufacture until received by the dental practice. Continuously refrigerated, high-potency gels, together with a scientifically designed application protocol, deliver predictably exceptional results.

De-sensitizer helps

KöR desensitizers instantly plug and re-plug the orifices of the dentinal tubules to “prevent” pulpal inflammation and sensitivity rather than simply treat the symptoms. The first desensitizer, applied at chairside, plugs tubules. The second desensitizer, applied by the patient daily at home, also instantly plugs tubules.

What are the benefits of KöR teeth whitening?

Many patients report much more powerful results with KöR teeth whitening than with other forms of teeth whitening. In fact, KöR teeth whitening has the ability to whiten your smile by up to 16 shades. There are also no known severe side effects with KöR teeth whitening.

Is KöR teeth whitening safe?

Most patients report not experiencing any side effects at all during or after treatment. Some patients may experience some minor discomfort or sensitivity but moderate or severe side effects are incredibly rare. If any issues do arise, the dental professional can help deal with the side effects.

Does KöR cause any discomfort?

The process for KöR is very safe and does not cause much, if any discomfort for the patient. If the patient is at risk of experiencing discomfort during the procedure, the dentist may recommend treatment before starting the KöR process (e.g., filling a cavity before starting treatment).

How can I take care of my smile after KöR?

The results of KöR can last for an indefinite amount of time, but the longevity of the results does rely heavily upon how well the patient cares for their smile. It is important to limit foods that may cause teeth stains, practice good oral hygiene, and make it into all follow-up visits with the dentist.
