Whitening gel contains oxygen that dissolves and removes stains at the molecular level. But the enzymes in saliva will quickly deactivate these whitening ingredients. That’s why Dr. Heffelfinger uses advanced digital imaging to create custom-fitting KöR trays to seal in the gel and prevent saliva from entering.
The Gentlest Product Available
Perhaps you’ve tried over-the-counter whitening products that caused sensitivity in your teeth and gums. Dr. Heffelfinger uses KöR, the gentlest whitening system you can find. One of the ways KöR eliminates sensitivity is with custom-fitted trays that protect your gums from the strong whitening gel.
Other whitening brands contain stabilizing ingredients to prevent the active ingredients in their gel from breaking down. Unfortunately, these stabilizing ingredients are a major cause of tooth sensitivity. But KöR never uses these painful chemicals because their gel is kept refrigerated from the moment it’s made to prevent the degradation of its whitening agents.
Day or Night–Home or Office
Using the KöR system, Dr. Heffelfinger can whiten your teeth at our office or provide you with an easy kit to use at home. If you decide to go with a take-home whitening option, you can choose between an overnight system or you can whiten your teeth during the day. Many of our patients select an ongoing maintenance system with occasional office visits to maintain their spectacular results.
What Causes Teeth to Stain?
There are several factors that can cause your teeth to become dingy, stained, or yellow. In addition to poor dental hygiene, diet can also be a factor. Foods and beverages such as berries, coffee, tea, and both red and white wine will all stain your teeth. Yellowing can also be caused by smoking, physical trauma, and certain medications.
