Deeply stained teeth are not just cosmetic issues – they're also exceptionally stubborn. Traditional teeth whitening options are quite effective at removing even significant surface staining, but they come up short on deeply set stains, especially those related to childhood use of the antibiotic tetracycline.
Fortunately, The Office of Dr. Bellisario is proud to offer Ardmore-area patients an advanced cosmetic dentistry solution to address this issue. With the KöR teeth whitening system, we can remove those stubborn stains and leave you with a smile you can love.
If you live in the Ardmore, Pennsylvania area and want to discuss teeth whitening with our cosmetic dentist, please call The Office of Dr. Bellisario at (610) 810-2090.
What Is KöR?
Many traditional tooth whitening treatments involve extensive in-office appointments and the application of a bleaching light. Essentially, the cosmetic dentist would apply the teeth whitening formula, then heat the gel or resin with a bleaching lamp. It's a successful approach, but it can increase sensitivity while leaving some deep stains untouched.
KöR works differently. First, our cosmetic dentist will take a mold of your teeth. This allows to custom design a set of trays that snugly and comfortably fit with your specific mouth topography. Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits can't claim this.
Once these trays are complete, we give them to you to take home. The gel is sealed inside the trays by the tight fit of the custom-designed materials. You wear these trays every night for approximately two weeks while you sleep.
What Are the Advantages of KöR Teeth Whitening?
KöR presents several advantages over other tooth whitening systems, including:
- The ability, as noted, to remove deep chemical stains, such as those related to tetracycline use
- A deeper, more dramatic whitening
- No bleaching or heating light required
- Less sensitivity related to the whitening
- Permanent results
- No need to fear staining drinks such as coffee, tea or soda
Furthermore, the system has an excellent safety record, so you don't have to worry about consequences or discomfort.
Our cosmetic dentist will be happy to discuss all of your teeth whitening options. Not everyone is a good candidate for whitening, though most patients with healthy gums and sound overall health are candidates for the procedure.
