Even an otherwise healthy and attractive smile can be compromised by tooth discoloration and stains. While there are many whitening products available over-the-counter, few patients get the results they desire from these items, especially when stains are deep-set. Professional teeth whitening erases surface stains and brightens the teeth by several shades, but even some of these products have their limitations. Fortunately, our patients at Bell Dental can brighten their smile with the KöR teeth whitening system. The KöR teeth whitening system offers our Lake Jackson, TX, patients the most powerful bleaching results. This system brightens the teeth by several shades and has even proven effective in eliminating fluorosis and tetracycline stains, which were previously thought to be untreatable.
The KöR teeth whitening system uses specially formulated whitening gels, along with customized KöR-Seal™ whitening trays to ensure that patients get maximum results from their treatment. The KöR teeth whitening system also uses a unique refrigeration process that guarantees patients are getting a product that is virtually just as fresh as the day it was made. Any whitening product is unstable by nature, which is actually what allows them to break down stains and discoloration. However, this instability also means that whitening gels will continually degenerate as they are kept in storage unless they are refrigerated. By keeping KöR products refrigerated from the moment they are manufactured, and by using customized trays that block out saliva, the KöR teeth whitening system ensures that patients receive six or more hours of active teeth whitening, as opposed to the 25-30 minutes that is provided by most teeth whitening treatments.
Another unique benefit of KöR teeth whitening is that it greatly reduces sensitivity related to whitening treatment. Prior to beginning their KöR teeth whitening treatment, patients will undergo a desensitizing treatment. This treatment uses desensitizers to block the tubules of the teeth so that bleaching agents cannot reach the sensitive nerves at the center of the teeth. Patients will continue to use desensitizer throughout their at-home treatment. In doing this, we are able to prevent or greatly minimize sensitivity for patients, rather than simply treating it after it occurs.
KöR teeth whitening treatment will be customized to the specific needs of each patient. While each treatment may vary slightly, the average patient will receive a desensitization and preparation treatment at our office before beginning a series of at-home treatments. At home, patients can expect to wear their whitening trays while they sleep, each night for a period of approximately two weeks. At the end of this period, patients may return for an in-office teeth whitening treatment. After a series of KöR teeth whitening treatments, patients will have dramatically whiter teeth that are free of surface stains. With maintenance treatments roughly once a month, patients can maintain this new, whiter smile long-term.
At Bell Dental, we offer various teeth whitening techniques that allow us to meet the unique needs of each of our patients.
