Teeth Whitening Service in Philadelphia and why Teeth Whitening is good

There is no shortage of products and services available to individuals who wish to have a whiter, brighter smile. With an abundance of options, it can be difficult to determine the best method. While over the counter teeth whitening systems may seem convenient due to their accessibility, the best way to get truly remarkable results is through professional services at your dentist’s office. At the Philadelphia office of David Spilkia Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we can explain why professional teeth whitening is good for patients.

Disadvantages of commercial at-home teeth whitening

 While store-bought at home whitening kits seem like a satisfactory solution at a fair value, they have several disadvantages, including:

  • Time – At home pastes, trays, and strips take much longer to produce results than professional treatment from the dentist’s office.
  • Not as effective – At home teeth whitening kits are cheaper than in office whitening because they do not give as dramatic of results. While at home kits can remove some surface level staining and make the teeth appear whiter temporarily, results do not last as long as professional whitening.

 KöR Bleaching System

 Like over the counter whitening systems, the KöR bleaching system uses whitening trays that are used in the comfort of your own home, but that’s where the similarities stop. KöR uses custom fitted trays for truly even whitening. A special professional grade peroxide gel penetrates the molecules deep in the enamel that create stains. For patients that have truly deep stains, a combination of at home and in office treatments may be necessary for the best results.

Benefits of KöR Whitening

 KöR whitening products are safe and cause no damage to the teeth. They trigger natural chemical processes to release oxygen and water molecules to lift stains from the teeth.

Additionally, there is no sensitivity or discomfort with KöR as with other bleaching methods, increased sensitivity is often due to the use a of a specialized light to speed up the whitening process. KöR whitening does not use light or laser to whiten the teeth.
