Highland Dental of Hayward
We all know that good oral health is important, but the appearance of your smile matters too. Over time, your teeth can become stained. Coffee, tobacco, and wine can leave teeth yellowed and dark, making you reluctant to smile. If you’re ashamed of your teeth, it can lower your self-esteem and even your mood. Smiling is good for you, and you should be proud to show your smile to the world!
If your teeth are yellowed, stained, or darkened, our Hayward, CA dental office wants to help restore your teeth to a natural white using the KöR Whitening deep bleaching system. The KöR system is different from most teeth whitening products. It has been specially formulated to restore your teeth to their natural color with results that last years.
How Does the KöR Whitening System Work?
The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching system works by improving the oxygen absorption levels of your teeth. The whitening gel contains stain-dissolving oxygen, which penetrates deep into the enamel to break up even the most stubborn staining. Depending on the level of teeth whitening you hope to achieve, we will combine in-home treatments with additional treatments in our dental office in Hayward, CA.
The KöR System’s bleaching trays are custom made for your teeth. This gives them a tight seal and allows you to wear the trays while you sleep without the gel leakage found in other systems. This prolonged period of bleaching each night means better, faster results.
If you have tried teeth whitening before and had troubles with sensitivity, there’s more good news. Most patients who use the KöR system have little to no sensitivity issues, and even those who do report sensitivity generally rate it around only 10% of the severity found with other bleaching systems. KöR also offers a desensitizing product if tooth sensitivity is an issue for you.
The KöR Whitening System usually takes two weeks of in-home treatment. Deeper or more stubborn stains may require up to six weeks of treatments. The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching system can lighten your teeth by up to sixteen shades.
Who Can Benefit From Teeth Whitening?
Anyone who has a smile that’s not as bright as they’d like can benefit from the KöR Whitening system. From age fourteen to ninety-nine, brighter, whiter teeth are always better. Dark or gray teeth from tetracycline stains were previously thought to be untreatable, but KöR Whitening has been tested and found to be effective even on some of these “impossible” stains.
If you have veneers, crowns, or tooth-colored fillings, be aware that the KöR Whitening system will not be effective on them. You may need to replace them after you have completed the deep bleaching treatment to ensure they match your new, whiter teeth.
