With many options in teeth whitening, we are proud to offer the Kor Whitening System. Ranked highest as most effective, the Kor Whitening Deep Bleaching System, works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen. Deeply absorbed into your tooth, the oxygen from the Kors Tooth Whitening gel dissolves stain particles. The deep bleaching process is so powerful that it can even lighten tetracycline-stained teeth and, in some patients, even veneers. For the in-office appointment at Attentive Dental Care, a strong 9% hydrogen peroxide solution is used and in the trays at home, a 16% carbamide peroxide solution. Our Morristown cosmetic dentist will monitor the procedure and the level of tooth sensitivity. This is a very dependable, permanent, whitening procedure with usually little to no sensitivity to your teeth. Using custom trays that are formed from molds taken of your teeth, this is a remarkable whitening process that, with proper care, will last for years to come. No special light is needed with this technique and researchers say that the bleaching is a function of the concentration of the bleach and the length of time that the bleach stays on the teeth.
In certain patients, their porcelain veneers can be refreshed with the Kor Tooth Whitening process and its deep bleaching technique. Your tooth’s structure under a veneer can sometimes darken over time which can cause a significant difference in shade. Our Morristown cosmetic dentist at Attentive Dental Care would normally replace the veneer when this happens, but since the natural structure of the tooth is accessible through the back of a veneer, it makes sense to create brighter looking veneers with deep bleaching.
