The KöR® Whitening Procedure
Our in-house treatment uses KöR® Whitening, a three-step system. The first step involves using a custom at-home whitening kit for two weeks to prepare the teeth for the in-office treatment. Next, patients undergo a single hour-long treatment at our offices. This is followed by two more weeks of at-home treatment to achieve the full extent of whitening.
Benefits of KöR® Whitening
There are a wide variety of teeth whitening treatments on the market today. Many patients choose KöR® Whitening when they consider:
- KöR® Whitening can lighten teeth by up to eight shades
- There is little to no tooth sensitivity during and after treatment
- The procedure is quick and simple
- It is a very effective treatment, even for deeply stained teeth
- It is highly rated by dental journals
Following KöR® Whitening treatment, Dr. van Zyl will provide you with important tips for maintaining your results. In general, dedicated daily brushing and flossing, along with regular checkups, can help you avoid recurring dental stains.
Dr. van Zyl also offers at-home whitening requiring no in-office treatment. As with the KöR® system, the patient receives custom dental trays, which will evenly distribute professional-grade bleach over the surfaces of the teeth. The trays are worn 30 minutes to two hours a day for two weeks. During your consultation, Dr. van Zyl will provide detailed instructions for proper at-home use.
