A storybook wedding, an important job interview, graduation, or easing a lifetime of embarrassment…patients often have a special reason for whitening their teeth.
KöR whitening 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.
As people age, it is common for teeth to become dull and yellow. This is in part due to age itself and also due to what a person eats and drinks. Drinking coffee, tea, and wine, for example, can stain your teeth. Smoking and eating foods that contain food coloring can also stain your teeth.
Fortunately, at Elements Dental Spa – Baton Rouge Dentist & Aesthetics Spa, we offer the KöR Whitening System to provide amazing teeth whitening results.
KOR is a powerful whitening solution that whitens your smile. It is the only recognized system that whitens even tetracycline-stained teeth in a shorter time (previously thought to be impossible). Molds of your teeth will be made to fabricate your own unique, ultra-comfortable KOR-Seal whitening trays.
KOR whitening is unique because it is both an in-office and at-home procedure. The initial treatments will be given by your dentist, after which you will be given whitening gel to apply every night at home.
The trays are thin and designed to fit comfortably so they will not interfere with sleep. This will help to condition your teeth to receive the higher strength in-office whitening treatment at your second and final whitening visit.
This teeth whitening gel is set apart because of the proprietary nature of the gel, but also because the whitening trays have a very snug fit, which means that teeth don’t come in contact with saliva which can weaken the whitening strength. Furthermore, KOR requires refrigeration from the time it is manufactured until the time it is used on teeth, so the chemicals do not lose their potency.
Long-lasting results – If you take good care of your smile, your results will last up to 2-3 years or longer.
Periodic touch-ups from our doctors can extend your results indefinitely, making teeth whitening a great investment in your smile.
The KöR Whitening System works by restoring your teeth’s youthful ability to absorb oxygen. The oxygen from the whitening gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving and removing stain molecules.
Whitening products have been clinically studied for more than three decades and are safely used on millions of patients without harm to teeth or gums. KöR Whitening is considered entirely safe.
Many have experienced pain during teeth whitening. Maybe you’ve experienced it yourself. After years of research, development, and clinical testing, Dr. Rod Kurthy, the inventor of KöR Whitening, introduced a whitening gel that, in most cases, produces little to no sensitivity. As a result, most patients have no discomfort from whitening when using this system. We have found KöR Whitening to be the gentlest whitening system available.
Teeth are safely whitened at any age, however, the ideal age to begin whitening teeth is about 14 because the permanent teeth are usually all fully erupted in the mouth by that age. The younger the teeth are, the more brilliantly they whiten. However, KöR Whitening rejuvenates even older teeth back to their youthful ability to whiten incredibly well, even if you’re 90 years old.
KöR Whitening lightens teeth dramatically, up to 16 shades or more. Although everyone is different, with the proper KöR Whitening System, nearly all teeth will have stunning results. KöR even whitens tetracycline-stained teeth significantly, which was previously thought to be impossible!
No. If you have any of these on your front teeth, you may need to replace some of them after whitening.
With your easy home maintenance, these staining foods will have no effect on the long-term brilliant color of your teeth.
It’s important to note that one treatment doesn’t mean your teeth are eternally white. We offer take-home whitening kits and whitening-gel refill packs to help you maintain your brighter smile. Once your teeth are white, you can do it a few times a month for half an hour—this will maintain the whiteness.
Before getting started, we simply recommend that patients schedule a dental exam with our Baton Rouge dental office. We will then examine your teeth and gums to ensure that they are healthy enough for whitening. To learn more or to get started, call (225) 398-8812 and schedule your appointment.
