Benefits of Teeth Whitening with KOR
KOR teeth whitening treatment offers many benefits to patients, including:
- Is long-lasting
- Improves tooth health
- Reverses effects of aging on teeth
- Brightens teeth
- Can help improve your confidence
Whitening your teeth not only improves the aesthetics of your smile, but your oral health as well. Patients who undergo teeth whitening treatment often ensure that they visit the dentist regularly and properly care for their teeth. Furthermore, maintaining a bright smile can benefit the health of teeth and gums as well.
KOR Teeth Whitening
Dr. Randall Stewart and Dr. Melissa Stewart offer KOR teeth whitening to patients in their Charlotte, NC office. The KOR whitening process is comprehensive and involves multiple steps, so it may not be for everyone.
Either Dr. Randall or Dr. Melissa will assess your teeth to determine if you are a good candidate for treatment. They will also discuss your budget, goals, and overall oral health with you to see if KOR aligns with your specific needs.
The first step of KOR treatment involves two weeks of tooth whitening at home with whitening trays. These trays are custom-fit to each patient and are filled with bleaching gel. The trays should cover teeth for 6 to 10 hours of overnight teeth whitening. The whitening gels used in the trays are refrigerated to ensure their active ingredients stay effective when fighting enamel stains.
The whitening trays also seal out saliva, which can destroy peroxide, one of the active ingredients found in most tooth whitening gels.
After the first two weeks of treatment, at-home tooth whitening continues with one added in-office treatment. One month into treatment, three to four weeks of continuing at-home treatment will begin with multiple in-office sessions. The last six to eight weeks involves both in-office and at-home treatment.
This may seem like a long treatment process, but millions of patients globally have found that the KOR teeth whitening method minimizes tooth sensitivity while providing consistent and brilliant results.
Tooth Whitening FAQs
Why should I choose professional teeth whitening?
Professional whitening treatments carry many benefits compared to over-the-counter products. Professional teeth whitening is designed to minimize sensitivity to your teeth, a common problem with drugstore options. Professional whitening also gives a better result that lasts longer.
How long do the results of professional teeth whitening last?
With periodic touchups, KöR Whitening should provide lasting results. It also lasts longer if you ensure you’re taking care of your teeth, brushing at least twice a day, and limiting things that can stain your teeth, like coffee or tobacco.
Is teeth whitening safe for my teeth?
Yes, KöR Whitening is considered completely safe for you and your smile. We only use the safest materials rated for medical use. The teeth whitening procedure uses very low and safe levels of bleaching product.
Why won’t my teeth whiten?
Some tooth discolorations will not whiten with whitening treatment. Patients who took certain antibiotics as a child and have discolored teeth now may not whiten due to antibiotic staining. Patients who have enamel damage may also not be able to whiten their teeth because teeth whitening only affects the surface enamel.
How do I rehydrate my teeth after whitening?
After teeth whitening many patients need to rehydrate their teeth. Drinking room temperature water is a great way to rehydrate teeth. This will help reduce temporary sensitivity as well.
