KOR Whitening System

KOR Teeth Whitening in New Bedford

A Perfect Solution for Every Whitening Case.

KOR Whitening KitA storybook wedding, an important job interview, a graduation, or easing a lifetime of embarrassment… patients often have a special reason for whitening their teeth.

That’s why we developed a full line of KӧR Whitening systems using our proprietary Dual-Activated™, Tri-Barrel Hydremide® Peroxide formulation and delivery system. And why KöR Whitening is the first and only whitening company to insist on continuous refrigeration of our whitening gels from the moment of manufacture until they arrive cold-packed at your dental office.

KöR is widely recognized as the world’s most effective whitening system – with no need for lights or lasers. KöR offers cost-effective solutions from phenomenal home whitening for average patients, to astonishing treatment of tetracycline cases — and everything in-between.

The foods that you eat and the beverages that you drink can leave behind stains that can be hard to get rid of on your own – even if you are an avid brusher. If you are tired of hiding dull, yellowed teeth, we can help.

Getting Your Teeth Whitened With The KOR protocol

Teeth whitening can often be a frustrating, problematic and unpredictable proposition. Historically, whitening system companies have promised ease-of-use, outstanding results and happy patients.
But you’ve probably experienced a gap between what’s promised and what’s delivered. Most dentists providing teeth whitening have been frustrated with a lack of predictability, effectiveness, and longevity of effect, as well as complaints of sensitivity by patients.

Intrinsic tooth color is a result of large natural pigment and stain molecules trapped within the microstructure of teeth. The larger these molecules are, the more chromophores they contain, and the darker the teeth appear.

All peroxide gels work by forming hydrogen peroxide as their end product. Hydrogen peroxide breaks down to water, oxygen, and numerous radicals and byproducts known as “bleaching factors” that lighten teeth

Clinical Research associates (CRA) as well as other researchers have found that whitening gel in conventional whitening trays is only strongly active for 25-35 minutes. This is due to rapid contamination of the whitening gel by saliva.

Both saliva and sulcular fluid contain an abundance of the anti-oxidant enzyme peroxidase. When filling a set of upper and lower whitening trays with whitening gel, approximately 6.5mg of peroxide is placed in the trays. Saliva is capable of destroying a full 29mg of peroxide per minute! It takes very little contamination of the whitening gel in the trays by saliva to destroy whitening gel on contact.

KOR whitening KOR-Seal™ trays are specifically designed to seal both saliva and sulcular fluid out of the whitening trays. These trays, in combination with KOR Whitening’s continuously refrigerated Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel™ Hydremide® Peroxide Technology provide 6 to 10 hours of whitening activity compared to the typical 25-35 minutes. The result is a thorough cleansing of debris from between enamel rods, rejuvenating the enamel and delivering truly amazing whiteness.

KOR is simple, quick, and very effective. In fact,this system can whiten your teeth as much as eight shades.

Professional Whitening v. Over-the-Counter Products

There are many options for take-home teeth whitening systems on the market today, many of which you can buy at your drug store without a prescription. While this may be a tempting route, there are good arguments to spring for a dentist-guided whitening system instead. KOR offers both in-office and dentist administered take-home systems. Here are a few reasons you should opt for professional whitening:

  • One treatment and you’re done: A one-hour teeth whitening treatment isn’t the most pleasant way to spend an afternoon, but after that single visit, your teeth are done and you can simply enjoy your smile. Take-home whitening systems can take weeks before you begin to see any results and they are a serious time commitment.
  • A Comfortable Environment: Don’t worry about making a mess of your bathroom or hiding away while you wear your whitening trays. At Dental Partners of Boston, we offer an incredibly comfortable environment complete with comfy chairs, flat screen televisions, and even satellite radio. Best of all, we will clean up the mess when the treatment is over.
  • Your Treatment is Monitored: Everyone responds differently to chemicals, which is why it is important to have your whitening session monitored by a professional. If you are allergic to the whitening bleach or your teeth aren’t responding, we can alter your treatment to improve your results. For example, since bleaching gel comes in different strengths, we might be able to switch out your gel to whiten your teeth faster.
  • Aftercare Instructions: In addition to whitening your teeth neatly, safely, and effectively, we also give our patients aftercare instructions to help manage sensitivity and keep your teeth pristine. You’re always welcome to call and ask follow-up questions after a treatment.
