What is KOR Whitening?

The KOR whitening system is a highly advanced product that makes sure your whitening treatment is maximized for performance and effectiveness. Since bleaching ingredients used for whitening are highly unstable, the way in which they are administered matters. That’s why KOR makes an effort to keep its bleaching gels refrigerated up until the point of use, where the chemicals inside the gel are most effective. Not only does this ensure that you get the best whitening possible during treatment, but you also get the longest-lasting results through this method. KOR is also ideal for those who suffer with teeth sensitivity during whitening treatment and can’t use whitening that include lasers or heated lamps.

What Results Can I Expect?

KOR whitening treatment has shown to provide some of the most dramatic results in dentistry to date. It can whiten your smile up to 16 shades or more! With that said, each whitening case is unique because every patient has their own needs for whitening. Whether you need to remove stains that are yellow, gray or another darkened color, KOR is by far one of the most effective options out there. Even those who suffer from tetracycline stains due to receiving antibiotics at a young age can expect incredible results!

Keep in mind that, just like with any other whitening treatment, there will be a brief period of regression where the teeth normalize in color. This makes them appear more natural, rather than the ultra-white color that’s often associated with cheap veneers. You’ll be able to continue your whitening treatment on a regular basis to maintain your smile’s appearance.

In-Office Whitening

We use KOR technology to create gorgeous, fast improvements for your smile here in Wayland, MA. This state-of-the-art tool relies on continuously refrigerated, high-potency gels to accelerate the whitening process. By restoring your teeth’s youthful ability to absorb oxygen, the gel is absorbed far more deeply than other methods. The patient wears a closed mouthpiece that keeps oxygen from escaping during the treatment, resulting in a safer and more effective experience. This is done via the KOR Power Whitening treatment, which is done entirely in-office. For more predictable results, we recommend an option that combines both KOR in-office whitening and take-home kits.

Take-Home Whitening

KOR is also available for at-home use! Our professional-strength bleaching kits contain a higher concentration of active ingredients than over-the-counter systems. In addition, we will customize your trays to fit your bite so they will hold the potent gel against tooth enamel and keep saliva from diluting the chemical reaction. In most cases, patients are advised to wear their gel-lined bleaching trays daily for about 14 days, but this can vary depending on whether you choose the Max, Ultra or Ultra-T option. Many people notice whiter teeth after just one day’s treatment, but maximum results surface after multiple weeks of use.

How Can I Maintain My Results?

All whitening treatments, whether it’s from KOR or another brand, require routine at-home maintenance to keep teeth bright and white. While other treatments would require you to avoid virtually all foods and beverages that could potentially stain your teeth, KOR is significantly less susceptible to staining when you practice routine brushing and flossing. Because the tooth enamel is opened up in a way that is unique, the bleaching gels remain far more effective in the long-term. Furthermore, your take-home kits will have extra gel after you’ve completed your regimen, so continue using it on a monthly basis for touch-ups.
