KöR Teeth Whitening: The Enlightened Way to Brighten Your Smile
A bright, white smile can make a priceless impression on everyone you meet, and give you confidence that enhances your personal and professional life. Dr. Ann Sielicki exclusively uses the KöR teeth whiteningsystem at her Scottsdale, AZ, dental practice since it can eliminate hypocalcified stains, tetracycline stains (the absolute toughest of all dental stains), and deep yellow discoloration. In fact, Dr. Sielicki describes it as one of the best products she has used in her 20 years of practicing dentistry. Unlike many professional whitening treatments, KöR involves no lights or lasers, making it not only highly effective, but also extremely comfortable. Additionally, this treatment can incorporate ongoing periodic whitening, helping you experience decades of dazzling smiles. If you find yourself hesitating to smile because of dental stains, get in touch with us today to learn how KöR teeth whitening by Dr. Sielicki can help you look and feel your absolute best.
What Causes Dental Stains?
Even with regular brushing, flossing, and six-month checkups, healthy teeth can become discolored. Foods and beverages such as coffee, mustard, red wine, and berries are among the most common causes of stains. Medication, genetics, the natural aging process, and other factors can also take a toll on your teeth. Intrinsic stains, or those affecting the deepest layers of the teeth, can be virtually impossible to reverse with most whitening treatments.
Intrinsic stains can occur as a result of root canal therapy, and concealment with veneers and crowns is usually the only solution. KöR is unique in that it can actually address some intrinsic stains, making it a more conservative and economical cosmetic option for many patients. During an in-depth consultation, Dr. Sielicki can determine if KöR whitening is right for you.
KöR whitening can enhance not only your smile, but your entire appearance, giving you a significant boost in confidence.
How Does it Work?
KöR whitening is an advanced two-step process. During the first phase of treatment, patients apply an advanced bleaching agent to their teeth daily for two weeks. Dr. Sielicki will provide custom dental trays designed to achieve a precise fit with your teeth and evenly administer the whitening gel. Unlike other whitening treatments, KöR involves using a bleaching agent that is continually refrigerated to preserve its potency, ensuring consistently attractive results.
Once patients complete the at-home stage of treatment, Dr. Sielicki performs an in-office treatment that lasts about 90 minutes. Afterward, patients can expect a smile that is eight shades brighter. Patients should continue to whiten at home with any remaining gel. It is typically recommended that patients continue to apply the whitening gel once per month to maintain their treatment results, but Dr. Sielicki may recommend more frequent, ongoing whitening, depending on a patient’s intake of stain-causing beverages, like coffee, as well as other factors.
