Dr. James Furgurson is a talented cosmetic dentist and is currently welcoming patients from Durham, NC who are looking to instantly whiten their teeth. To see if our teeth whitening systems can brighten your teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Furgurson. He will perform an examination of your teeth and customized a treatment plan that will meet your goals while staying within your budget. We use two of the top teeth whitening systems, both of which will deliver beautiful results.
KöR Teeth Whitening
KöR teeth whitening utilizes advanced science to whiten teeth without the use of lasers or lights. The efficiency of bleaching products becomes problematic when mixed with natural saliva. KöR whitening KöR-Seal™ trays are designed to bypass this issue. They are capable of completely sealing out saliva allowing the KöR whitening gels to deliver 6 to 10 hours of whitening activity. This system can deliver amazing whitening results very thoroughly. This treatment involves many steps but is known for not causing tooth sensitivity.
The KöR Whitening uses a tri-barrel gel delivery system to keep the whitening agents separate. This is the only whitening system to use this configuration, increasing its effectiveness.
The KöR whitening process involves multiple steps with the first involving 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 6 – 10 hours.
After those two weeks, you will return to our Durham, NC area dentist office for an in-office treatment while continuing the at-home 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 involve in-office and at-home treatment.
Opalescence Teeth Whitening
Opalescence is a trusted teeth whitening system that 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.
