Tooth Discoloration

Over time, you may notice that your teeth become dull, yellowed, stained or otherwise discolored. This can happen as a result of a variety of factors, including:

  • The natural progression of age and time
  • Poor oral hygiene habits
  • Use of tobacco products, including smoking
  • Frequent consumption of foods and drinks that stain
  • Certain illnesses and medications
  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoride consumption)

This is where KöR teeth whitening comes in.

What Is KöR Teeth Whitening? 

KöR teeth whitening is a revolutionary teeth whitening system and uses a scientifically advanced formula to deliver unparalleled results in teeth whitening. KöR whitening is renowned for its ability to effectively eliminate even the toughest stains on your tooth enamel, giving you back a bright, beautiful smile that you can feel confident sharing with others. Patients who receive KöR whitening can expect to achieve a dramatic improvement in the appearance of their teeth, easily surpassing the results achievable with over-the-counter whitening products.

The KöR teeth whitening process is simple. It begins with a consultation. Our dentist will assess your teeth and oral health and discuss your smile goals with you to determine if KöR teeth whitening is right for you. We can then proceed with your customized whitening treatment plan. This includes selecting the appropriate whitening formula and designing custom-fitted whitening trays for optimal results.

Unlike other whitening treatments, KöR uses at-home whitening sessions. For your at-home whitening sessions, our dentist will provide you with custom trays and a specially formulated whitening gel. Simply wear the trays as directed to brighten your smile in the most convenient way possible.

Key Benefits

KöR Whitening is revolutionary approach to whitening and is widely regarded as the most effective teeth whitening system ever developed.

Unlike other teeth whitening procedures…

  • KöR is the only recognized system in the world that will whiten tetracycline (dark) stained teeth, which was previously thought to be impossible.
  • KöR is the first company in the world to continuously refrigerate its whitening gels, from the moment of manufacture through delivery to your office. This ensures absolute potency and effectiveness. Refrigeration is a key part of the KöR system.
  • With KöR patients whiten while they sleep in total comfort. No need to find time to whiten during their busy day. And the unique KöR-Seal Whitening Trays are so comfortable that most patients wake up in the morning having forgotten the trays are even in their mouths.
  • With easy periodic at-home maintenance, your patient’s teeth will stay white permanently, even while they continue to drink red wine, tea, coffee, etc.
  • During the whitening process, the vast majority of patients typically experience very low to no teeth sensitivity.
  • The KöR procedure is comfortable and decades of scientific research and millions of whitening cases have proven KöR Whitening is entirely safe for teeth and gums. The result is a radiantly white, natural appearing smile that you will LOVE!
  • The ideal age to whiten is 14. But even if you’re 90, KöR Whitening is effective because KöR rejuvenates the youthful ability of your teeth to absorb oxygen. Oxygen from KöR Whitening gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving stain molecules.

Maintaining Your Smile

After you have achieved your desired level of whiteness, our dentist will discuss how you can maintain your results. This may include adjustments to your oral hygiene routine as well as periodically returning to our office to “touch up” your smile with an additional KöR whitening session.


Why does KöR Whitening work so well?

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.

How long does KöR Whitening last?

Unlike other whitening methods, with easy periodic home maintenance, KöR Whitening is entirely permanent.

Is it safe?

Whitening products have been clinically studied for more than three decades and safely used on millions of patients without harm to teeth or gums. KöR Whitening is considered entirely safe.

Is there pain or discomfort with KöR Whitening?

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.

Does it matter how old I am?

Teeth are safely whitened at any age, however, the ideal age to whiten teeth is about 14 because the permanent teeth are usually all fully erupted in the mouth by that age. The younger 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.

How white will my teeth get?

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!

Will my teeth look too white and unnatural?

No. Real teeth can’t look unnatural, they just look beautifully white. If you have seen people with ultra-white, fake-looking teeth, these were probably false teeth, teeth with porcelain crowns, or porcelain veneers that may have been made too white and too opaque. With KöR Whitening you’ll get the ideal shade that’s right for you. Will my crowns, veneers or fillings whiten too? No. If you have any of these on your front teeth, you may need to replace some of them after whitening.

How will coffee, tea, smoking and red wine affect my teeth after whitening?

With your easy home maintenance, these staining foods will have no effect on the long-term brilliant color of your teeth.

Will the whitening trays be uncomfortable, difficult to sleep with, or will the whitening gel leak out of the trays?

KöR-Seal whitening trays are very different. They’re comfortable – because they’re thin and form-fitting, you’ll probably forget they’re even in your mouth. They’re convenient – by wearing these only while you sleep, it doesn’t interfere with your busy day. Also, unlike regular whitening trays, KöR-Seal whitening trays seal the whitening gel inside the tray, preventing the gel from quickly leaking into your mouth.

How does the KöR Whitening system work?

Molds of your teeth will be made to fabricate your own set of unique, ultra-comfortable KöR-Seal whitening trays. You and your dentist will select which level of KöR Whitening is the proper fit for you. Most patients wear their KöR-Seal Whitening Trays at home for two weeks while they sleep. Depending on your selections, you may have one or two simple whitening visits in the dental office.
