These days, there are tons of professional and at-home methods for whitening teeth. Why? Stained teeth affect our self-confidence, and people want to exude health and power. At Fairhope Bay Dental, Dr. Avery and his team use the KöR® Whitening method. Read on to learn more about how this technique can help whiten your teeth and give you the self-assurance you deserve.
Numerous scientific studies have been conducted on the subject, but there is one thing that can’t be denied - humans like white teeth. Whether it’s because they appear cleaner and healthier, or just because there are always eyes on our faces, white teeth have been desirable since ancient times. In ancient Egypt, people used a mixture of ground pumice and wine vinegar to achieve a whitening effect.
At home, there are some things you can do to maintain white teeth. These include:
If you do end up with stained teeth, however, there’s no need to fret. There are several safe, simple treatments, such as the KöR Whitening method we use in our Fairhope, AL office.
Before you get started with the KöR Whitening System, Dr. Avery and our team of experts will first check to ensure your mouth is ready to support the treatment. This includes ensuring you are free of cavities and disease. Then, you’ll be instructed to begin brushing with a toothpaste that reduces tooth sensitivity and protects your teeth during the whitening process
What makes the KöR Whitening process unique is that it’s the first tooth-whitening product on the market to work using a line of refrigerated gels, along with a tray system. It is essential these gels be kept refrigerated until use, to maintain maximum potency and avoid causing chemical instability. These high-potency peroxide gels, when combined with an intricate application protocol, work together to lighten the shade of teeth.
There are several KöR treatment plans to choose from, depending on your tooth-whitening goals and the severity of your tooth staining. You should expect to wear your whitening trays for at least 14 nights. Then, you may be scheduled for an in-office procedure for additional whitening. Each KöR kit also comes with desensitizer, which you apply each evening to help reduce tooth sensitivity during treatment.
Your teeth and gums may feel slightly more sensitive during treatment. In addition, you may notice your tooth color becoming speckled or uneven. This is normal, but if you notice anything out of the ordinary, be sure to consult with your dental professional as soon as possible.
As long as you are diligent about wearing your nightly trays, KöR can combat even the toughest forms of tooth staining. When patients finish treatment, their teeth are on average 16 shades later than when they began treatment. Tooth-whitening competitors don’t come close to matching this impressive number, making the KöR Whitening System your premier choice for teeth whitening.
