KoR Whitening – Teeth Whitening Bleach
A whiter smile is one of our most-requested treatments!
Don’t be misled by the clever marketing tactics of over-the-counter teeth whitening agents. By using the most current and most successful teeth whitening agents and techniques available to dentists, years of stains from foods, beverages, and smoking can be removed. In addition, teeth stained by medication can often be lightened, resulting in a brighter smile.
It's important to note that tooth discoloration can also be a sign of oral health issues. We urge you to have a dental checkup prior to beginning teeth whitening treatment. Your dentist will discuss with you the best course of action and the best products to whiten your teeth.
Developed by internationally renowned, cosmetic dentist and bleaching expert, Dr. Rod Kurthy, the KöR Whitening System is used by thousands of dentists worldwide and is widely considered to be the most reliable and effective whitening system ever developed.
The KöR Whitening system has proven to consistently produce whiter, brighter smiles in patients. In fact, the KöR system is so effective, it is the only recognized whitening system that whitens tetracycline-stained (dark) teeth in a short time (previously considered impossible). And due to its advanced formulation and continuous refrigeration of the whitening gels, there's little to no sensitivity during the whitening process.
The Unique KöR-Seal Trays
A key to the effectiveness of the KöR system are the unique KöR-Seal™ trays used for at-home whitening. These trays are made of thin clear flexible vinyl and are carefully fabricated to fit precisely to your teeth. Most patients find these trays extremely comfortable to wear and have no trouble sleeping with them. These unique KöR-Seal trays allow room for bleaching gel to be kept in contact with the teeth, and they seal at the gum line so that gel is not diluted, or washed away, by saliva. This ensures the maximum whitening results.
And the KöR Whitening System is perfect for patients of all ages, including teenagers and baby boomers.
How Does KöR Whitening Work?
The KöR Whitening System works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen. The oxygen from KöR’s whitening gel is absorbed deeply into your teeth, dissolving all stain molecules, leaving your teeth incredibly white. And KöR Whitening products have been clinically proven safe on thousands of patients without harming teeth or gums.
The KöR Whitening System is a safe, effective, and convenient cosmetic dentistry procedure that can improve the appearance of teeth to restore self-esteem and self-confidence.
So, if you're too embarrassed to smile, have dark-stained teeth, or just simply want a whiter smile, the KöR Whitening System offers the best in whitening science, and is by far the best whitening system available today.

Types of Teeth Stains
There are two ways your white teeth become stained and dull in color. Intrinsic stains reside deep within the tooth, whereas extrinsic stains remain on the tooth surface.
Intrinsic tooth stains are discolorations inside the enamel and dentin of your teeth, sometimes even before the teeth erupt from the gums as a child. It is caused by a number of factors, such as antibiotic use, excessive amounts of fluoride exposure, and simply thinning enamel over time due to aging.
Extrinsic staining is discoloration of the outside of your tooth. These surface stains are usually caused by environmental exposure. Common causes of this type of staining are drinking coffee, artificial food colorings, and smoking. These all can lead to tooth surface discoloration that will look yellow or gray in the outermost layer of the teeth, the enamel. Even certain antibiotics are known to cause this type of staining due to how much they interact with teeth surface proteins.
FAQs About Whitening Teeth
How does teeth whitening work?
Whitening treatments involve using one or more active ingredients, such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, to break down discoloration within tooth enamel layers. The bleaching process works by penetrating the stained layers of teeth and removing stubborn stains that may have resulted from aging, genetic disorders, tobacco use, and food and beverages with pigmented properties.
How long does teeth whitening last?
Professional teeth whitening often lasts longer than over-the-counter at-home whitening products. But the effects of teeth whitening last can vary greatly from person to person. In part, the duration of whitening depends on your eating and drinking habits.
Are teeth whitening kits safe?
Improper use of at-home teeth whiteners can lead to increased gum or tooth sensitivity can occur easily during at-home teeth treatments. Tooth whitening systems do not address all types of stains. It's best to work with a cosmetic dentist to whiten your teeth over a period of time.
What are the risks of whitening?
If the whitening treatment, such as whitening gel, is applied to the soft tissues on the surface, such as the lips, gums, and tongue, it can result in chemical burns. This soft tissue damage typically transforms into ulcers before they heal. Additionally, there is a risk of increased sensitive teeth, making it challenging to eat certain foods.
Who should get their teeth whitened?
It's best to prioritize our oral health above all else. Our teeth are susceptible to discoloration over time due to age, genetics, and other outside influences. Before making any decisions regarding improving their dental aesthetics with tooth stain removal, speak with a dental professional about the best options for their particular situation.
