What is Teeth Whitening?

When your smile is dull and yellow, you may not be happy with the way that you look. Rather than use store-bought products, we offer a whitening system that is effective and can be done in the comfort of your own home. KoR Whitening involves lifting stains and deep discoloration using custom-made trays. The patented whitening gel stays put and saliva is not able to get into the trays to dilute the solution.

Why might Teeth Whitening be needed?

You might be planning a big event and want to look your absolute best. You might be wanting a quick and effective boost to your confidence. Many different factors can contribute to a dull and discolored smile. These factors include:

  • You smoke or chew tobacco
  • You take certain types of medications
  • You drink a lot of tea, coffee and cola
  • You eat staining foods, like blueberries, blackberries and chocolate
  • You’re simply getting older
  • You don’t always brush and floss properly

Who is a good candidate for Teeth Whitening?

All types of whitening, no matter how potent the ingredients, will not change the color of your restorations. If your goal is to lighten veneers, crowns, bridges or bonding any more than they were when first placed, the restorations have to be replaced rather than whitened. However, most of our patients are good candidates for KoR Whitening and can benefit from improving the look of their teeth.

What happens during the Teeth Whitening process?

We begin by taking impressions that will be used to make your custom-fitted trays. You are then provided with KoR’s patented refrigerated whitening gel. This gel is placed inside of the trays and worn for a specific amount of time. Some patients can benefit from just an hour a day while others may want to wear their trays overnight. The trays are different in that they keep the whitening gel in and saliva out. This prevents the whitening gel from becoming diluted, which can affect results. You can keep the trays and use them in the future for touch-ups.
