KöR Teeth Whitening

About Store-Bought Whiteners

In general, store-bought whiteners have been found to be safe to use, although it’s important to note that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t regulate these products. An obvious drawback to using these whiteners is that the process is not supervised by a dentist

This is a problem because your teeth need to be healthy when you whiten. If you have cavities or decay and the whitening gel penetrates these areas, you will experience excruciating pain. On the other hand, if your teeth are healthy, you shouldn’t have a problem with over-the-counter-whiteners other than the fact that they don’t perform as well as professional treatments.

KöR is a completely unique type of professional teeth whitening product. There is absolutely no OTC product on the market today that can come anywhere close to results achieved with KöR

The secret behind KoR’s success is in its specially formulated whitener. Unlike OTC products, the whitener seeps into microscopic holes in your dental enamel to lift stubborn stains. OTC products only lift stains from the surface of your teeth. 

There are many advantages to choosing KöR over OTC products:

  • KöR Whitening uses a specially formulated to lift stains from deep within your teeth
  • KöR is easy to use – simply wear your custom trays daily for about two weeks
  • KöR produces amazing results. You can expect to see whitening of about 16 shades! 
  • KöR is specially formulated to reduce sensitivity experienced with OTC products
  • KöR can remove the most stubborn stains, even those caused by tetracycline use 

With proper oral hygiene and occasional touchups, the results achieved with KöR are permanent. No other product can make that claim! With proper oral hygiene and occasional touchups at home, your smile will stay bright and beautiful.

woman getting teeth whitenedAbsolutely. You can whiten your teeth all day, every day for months...and it won't damage your teeth. The whitening agent changes the color, not the composition of your teeth. It does not make your teeth more brittle or weaker. BUT, it does cause temporary sensitivity to cold things. Fairly minor in most cases and goes away when you stop the whitening process. The only things to be careful of are if you are pregnant or nursing or if you have cavities.

Other than that, it works really well and is the most conservative thing to improve your smile. Ask Dr. Kim how it works.  He'll be more than happy to show you how it works in more detail.
