When you see yourself in a photograph, are your eyes immediately drawn to your smile? Years of drinking cola and coffee can lead to staining that leaves many people self-conscious about showing off their teeth. You’ve probably heard that you can go to a cosmetic dentist for teeth whitening; in particular, the KoR deep bleaching system is a popular method that boasts long-lasting results. However, it can be intimidating to ask about a procedure that you’re unclear on. Here’s what you need to know before speaking with your dentist about Kor teeth whitening.
What is KoR Teeth Whitening?
The KoR deep bleaching system involves refrigerated teeth-whitening gels that improve the ability of the teeth to absorb oxygen. This increased oxygen absorption helps in dissolving the molecules causing stains deep within your teeth. In other words, the system attacks the stain right at its source.
The treatment involves both at-home whitening kits and in-office bleaching sessions. The at-home kits can be used in the morning or at night depending on your needs and schedule. The in-office sessions usually take about two hours to complete.
Is KoR Teeth Whitening Safe?
KoR whitening has been used on millions of patients without causing harm to the teeth and gums, and the products used in the procedure have been clinically tested. Overall, it has been deemed entirely safe.
Will There Be Pain or Discomfort During My KoR Teeth Whitening?
Many patients have tooth sensitivity issues. Since the gels used in KoR treatments contain desensitizing agents, there’s usually little to no pain, although you should speak with your dentist about any concerns you have.
Is KoR Teeth Whitening Permanent?
Since KoR treatments break down stain molecules and improve the teeth’s ability to absorb bleaching factors, the procedure is considered permanent. That said, you will need to take care of your teeth to make sure the results last.
How Do I Maintain the Effects of KoR Teeth Whitening?
Your dentist may give you additional at-home treatments to touch up your teeth and keep the desired level of whiteness. It should also be pointed out that all the same factors that normally influence tooth coloration will still apply. Try to limit your intake of darkly-colored staining foods and drinks such as coffee, and don’t smoke or use tobacco. Good dental hygiene habits can affect the tooth’s appearance as well; be sure to continue brushing and flossing daily, and visit your dentist twice a year.
KoR deep bleaching is considered one of the most effective methods of teeth whitening available today. Remember, though, that every patient is unique, and you’re no exception; there may be special considerations to think about. If you decide that now’s the time for the whiter smile you’ve always wanted, gather the facts and speak with your dentist about KoR.
