Even if you have structurally healthy teeth, dental stains can mar your smile and make you feel extremely self-conscious. Tooth discoloration is a common problem, and even if you diligently care for your teeth, foods, beverages, medication, and genetics can all take their toll on the color of your smile. Fortunately, Dr. Calcagno offers several types of teeth whitening. While you have probably heard about traditional whitening trays and in-office Zoom, you may not know much about the new, innovative KoR® Deep BleachingTM treatment. In this post, your Rochester, MN dentist explains this revolutionary procedure and why you should consider this treatment to renew your smile.
What Is KoR Deep Bleaching?
KoR Deep Bleaching combines in-office treatment with take-home whitening trays to give you the most comprehensive and long-lasting results possible. When you use the KoR Deep Bleaching System, oxygen molecules will actually penetrate below the surface, breaking up deep-seated dental stains. KoR doesn’t simply remove stains; it actually restores your tooth’s ability to absorb oxygen. Additionally, KoR trays actually seal off your teeth and prevent saliva from contaminating the whitening gel. Because of this, the gel is very powerful, and whitening action can continue for up to 10 hours after application.
The Advantages of KoR Deep Bleaching
With so many whitening options to choose from, why should you consider this newer method? According to surveys, patients consistently report high levels of satisfaction. Their approval can be attributed to the many advantages the treatment offers, including:
1. It is extremely effective.
KoR Deep Bleaching has dramatic effects. It can lighten your teeth by up to 16 shades, but at the same time, your smile will look completely natural. This whitening method does not simply reduce minor surface stains; it can also eliminate dark tetracycline stains. Until the development of KoR Deep Bleaching, dentists believed these stains could only be covered up with veneers, crowns, or bonding.
2. It is suitable if you have dental sensitivity.
Many patients with highly sensitive teeth are unable to tolerate the whitening gel used in other cosmetic treatments. KoR Deep Bleaching gel is specially created to minimize sensitivity, and many patients who could not receive traditional whitening treatment report that they experience little, if any, discomfort during KoR Deep Bleaching.
3. It is appropriate for a wide age range
Dentists typically advise patients to wait until adulthood to receive traditional whitening treatment. However, KoR Deep Bleaching is safe and effective for patients as young as 14. In fact, because teenagers’ teeth are better able to absorb oxygen, the treatment is most effective for younger patients. Nevertheless, older patients can also enjoy stunning results after receiving this treatment.
4. It has long-lasting effects.
Because KoR Deep Bleaching restores a tooth’s ability to absorb oxygen, the results are permanent. Additionally, you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, without negating the effects of your whitening procedure.
5. It can restore your smile and self confidence.
Of course, the most important benefit of KoR Deep Bleaching is that it enhances your smile and appearance. With whiter, healthy teeth, you will feel great about your smile, and you will have a hard time keeping it to yourself. In turn, smiling more boosts your mood, productivity, and social interactions. It can even make those around you smile more, too!
