Best Candidates for KöR Whitening
To be considered a candidate for KöR whitening, your teeth should be healthy but yellowed. Your enamel may be dull from aging, staining food and drinks, tobacco use, or other reasons. KöR systems are created to help patients with special concerns and intrinsic teeth stains that other professional and home whitening products cannot fix. KöR can help if you have fluorosis (lines or streaks on the enamel from excess fluoride while the teeth were developing), stains or discoloration from aging (also known as dark geriatric staining), and stains from using a tetracycline medication as a child. During your consultation, Dr. Peterson will assess your teeth and help you develop your personal KöR treatment plan.
What To Expect with KöR® Whitening
For your home KöR teeth whitening kit, Dr. Peterson may take impressions and have custom whitening trays created. You may achieve your cosmetic goals with the following KöR home treatment options:
- KöR-Day is worn for a short period of time, which makes it ideal for patients with sensitive teeth. The 9% hydrogen peroxide whitening solution can be used 1 – 2 times every day for approximately two weeks.
- KöR-Night is worn all night for faster results. The 16% carbamide peroxide solution can be applied every night for around two weeks.
KöR Whitening Follow-Up
To maintain your results from KöR at-home teeth whitening, you need to maintain a proper home oral care regimen, including daily brushing and flossing. It is also advisable to schedule twice-yearly professional cleanings at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to remove plaque and polish stains. You can also think about avoiding or limiting staining food and drinks, like coffee, berries, red wine, as well as tobacco products.
