Whitening with KöR®

KöR® is a professional, FDA-approved system whose teeth whitening capacity and comfort have been perfected through decades of research and development. The whitening gel is formulated with ingredients that are clinically-proven and sufficiently concentrated to break up and release stains. The gel is delivered to the teeth with specialized dental appliances or trays that are worn in your mouth as directed by Dr. Bingham-Lester.

All cosmetic treatments start with an exam. By confirming that your teeth and gums are healthy, we assure that this process doesn’t exacerbate active disease or other oral problems. This professional approach supports a safe experience. If KöR® whitening is appropriate for you, your dentist will take simple impressions. These models of your mouth will be used to fabricate the whitening trays. Unlike OTC whitening trays, these appliances are made to fit the contours of your mouth. This precision fit allows for both even whitening of the teeth and also eliminates damage to oral tissues caused by ill-fitting appliances rubbing up against the insides of the mouth.

Additionally, the unique design of KöR® trays stands apart from other professional teeth whitening trays. The proprietary KöR® Seal™ tray prevents the gums from coming into contact with the whitening gel. So, other oral tissues are protected from potential damage and discomfort. Also, this design seals out saliva. When saliva comes in contact with whitening gels, it erodes their potency. KöR® Seal™ allows for maximum, efficient whitening.

Getting to the root of painful sensitivity

The KöR® system includes proprietary desensitizers. Tooth sensitivity often arises when hot or cold substances work their way through protective enamel into the microscopic tubules in the underlying, softer dentin layer of the teeth. From there, these sources of sensitivity seep into the nerves and cells inside of each tooth. You may wince from the sharp pain that is frequently produced by this process.

KöR® desensitizers “plug” the dentinal tubes. In turn, they prevent the source of tooth sensitivity. This characteristic is unlike other products or systems, which merely treat the symptoms of the condition. Dr. Bingham-Lester prescribes these desensitizing agents two times during treatment; first, the desensitizer is applied chairside during an in-office visit. Second, the desensitizer is incorporated into your home whitening.

KöR® is even safe for patients with stubborn internal stains, such as those caused by excessive tetracycline use. Many of these patients may have been told that their discoloration isn’t amenable to tooth whitening. So, they’re often pleasantly surprised when KöR® dramatically transforms the color of their teeth.
