The nature of tooth discoloration

There are many factors that can contribute to teeth yellowing or staining. One of the most common is the natural aging process. As we get older, the enamel layer of our teeth becomes thinner, allowing more of the yellow dentin underneath to be visible. Another reason is the foods and beverages we consume. Dark colored beverages such as coffee, red wine, and tea can permanently stain the teeth. Foods that are acidic, certain fruits such as berries, and tomato sauce are also stain-causing over time. Lastly, certain lifestyle choices such as smoking, or tobacco use can yellow the teeth.

The KöR Whitening System

The KöR whitening system is one of the most remarkable solutions for bleaching teeth because it gives lasting results and has even proven to be effective on tetracycline stained teeth. Tetracycline is a type of antibiotic that can leave deep brown stains in the teeth. The basis of the KöR system is restoring oxygen in the teeth to lift away stains and discoloration.

KöR whitening can be done as an in-office or at-home treatment, or a combination of the two. The initial session is done in the office and after that you will be given a set of trays and whitening gel to use at home to keep teeth whitened.

Results from KöR are long lasting, especially for patients who continue with at-home maintenance whitening once a month. If you drink large amounts of coffee, tea, or red wine, try to brush your teeth immediately afterward and touch-up your whitening more frequently.

The KöR difference

The KöR whitening system utilizes a proprietary gel that is kept refrigerated from the moment of manufacture. This is important because it helps eliminate deeply set stains. In addition, the whitening trays have a very precise fit that seals out saliva which is known to break down the active ingredients in the whitening agent.

Candidates for KöR Whitening

KöR whitening can be used on nearly any patient over the age of 14. While teeth whitening works faster on younger patients, it can still be very effective in whitening the smiles of older adults.

Natural looking results

It is possible to over-whiten teeth, which is why it’s important to work with a dentist to get natural looking results. When you come to our office for whitening treatment, we will help determine what shade your teeth should be following whitening treatment to give you a natural looking smile.

We’ll also give you instructions for applying the gel that you will take home.

Whitening treatment and restorations

Unfortunately, dental restorations such as crowns or veneers will not respond to KöR whitening gel. That means that if you have these restorations in a visible spot within the smile, you may need to replace them if receiving whitening treatment. During your consultation, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan that will get you the results that you desire.
