KöR Teeth Whitening
KöR teeth whitening uses advanced science to whiten teeth without the use of lasers or lights. When a bleaching product mixes with saliva, it becomes less effective. This system uses special trays that bypass that issue. The trays will completely seal out saliva making the whitening gel better. The KöR whitening gels can deliver 6 to 10 hours of whitening activity. While it does involve many more steps, this system will give you great results. It is also known for not causing teeth to become sensitive.
The KöR Whitening uses a tri-barrel gel delivery system. This keeps all the whitening agents separate until it is time to whiten teeth. This is the only system to use this method.
The KöR whitening process involves multiple steps. This first step involves two weeks of teeth whitening at home using the trays. You will fill the trays with the bleaching gel and wear it overnight, covering your teeth for six to ten hours.
After those two weeks, you will return to our Durham, NC area dentist office for in office whitening. You will also do the at home treatment at the same time. 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 involve in office and at home treatments.
Opalescence Teeth Whitening
Opalescence is a trusted take home whitening system. It uses a sticky, viscous whitening gel that helps keep the trays in place thus increasing its effectiveness. The gel is also formulated with potassium nitrate and fluoride to strengthen tooth enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity. This safe and effective whitening system will whiten the entire tooth even the parts that are not in contact with the gel. This works because the oxygen molecules from the gel spread throughout the entire tooth and react with the discolored molecules. We offer several forms of Opalescence delivery systems including at-home customs trays, prefilled trays, or in-office treatments.
