At Dentistry for Kids & Adults we use the KOR® Whitening Deep Bleaching System as our in-office and at home teeth whitening system. KOR Whitening is unique because:The KOR Whitening Deep Bleaching System is the most effective way to add “WOW” to your appearance!Frequently Asked Questions:Why Does KOR Whitening work so well?
The KOR Whitening Deep Bleaching System works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen. The oxygen from its whitening gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving stain molecules.
How long does KOR Whitening last?
Unlike other whitening methods, with easy periodic home maintenance, KOR Whitening is entirely permanent.
Is it safe?
Whitening products have been clinically studied and safely used on millions of patients without harm to teeth or gums. Whitening is considered entirely safe.
Is there pain or discomfort with KOR Whitening?
Many have experienced pain during teeth whitening. Maybe you’ve experienced it yourself. After several years of research, development and clinical testing, the inventor of KOR Whitening introduced a whitening gel that, in most cases, produces little to no sensitivity. As a result, most patients have no discomfort from whitening when using this technique. Testing has shown that patients who do feel some sensitivity using KOR Whitening typically feel no more then 10% of the sensitivity they would feel from other whitening gels.
Does it matter how old I am?
The ideal age to whiten teeth is about 14. The younger teeth are, the more brilliantly they whiten. However, KOR Whitening rejuvenates even older teeth back to their youthful ability to whitening incredibly well, even if you’re 90 years old.
How white will my teeth get?
KOR Whitening whitens teeth dramatically, often lightening them 16 shades or more. Although everyone is different, with the proper KOR Whitening System, all teeth will have stunning results. If even whitens tetracycline-stained teeth!
Will my teeth look too white and unnatural?
No. Real teeth can’t look unnatural, they just look beautifully white. If you have seen people with ultra-white, fake-looking teeth, these were probably false teeth, teeth with porcelain crowns or veneers that may have been made too white and too opaque. You’ll get the ideal shade that’s right for you.
Will my crowns, veneers or fillings lighten too?
No. If you have any of these on your front teeth, you may need to replace some of them after whitening.
How will coffee, tea, smoking and red wine affect my teeth after whitening?
With your easy home maintenance, these staining foods will have no effect on the brilliant color of your teeth.
Will the whitening trays be uncomfortable, difficult to sleep with or will the bleach leak out of the tray?
No. KOR Whitening Deep Bleaching Trays are very different. They’re comfortable because they’re thin and form-fitting, you’ll forget they’re even in your mouth. They’re convenient; by only wearing trays while you sleep, KOR Whitening doesn’t interfere with your busy day. Also, unlike regular whitening trays, KOR Whitening Deep Bleaching Trays seal the bleach inside the tray, preventing the gel from quickly leaking into your mouth.

Molds of your teeth will be made to fabricate your own unique, ultra-comfortable KOR Whitening Deep Bleaching Trays. You and your dentist will select which level of KOR Whitening is the proper fit for you. You will wear your Deep Beaching Trays at home for two weeks while you sleep.
