KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System in Arlington Heights
As we get older, our teeth inevitably age. They lose that clean
white look and become caked with yellow and brown stains from years of
use. We have all heard of teeth bleaching treatments, and we have heard
the horror stories. All of us have heard the story of the patient going
in to get his/her teeth whitened, only to emerge from the process with
teeth that are painfully sensitive. Or, there’s the story of someone
getting his/her teeth whitened, only to find that the teeth still look
pretty much the same. Well, those horror stories are a thing of the
past. A new technique developed by Dr. Rod Kurthy has emerged. It is
known as KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System, and it is the most
innovative and effective teeth whitening treatment available today. The
results will amaze you.
The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System is a simple and nearly pain free
process. First, your Dr. Shawn Tokunaga will take molds of your teeth. Once the
molds are ready, you will return to our office, where your we will begin
the conditioning process. A tray filled with a gel will be placed in
your mouth. This gel breaks up the long chain stain molecules in your
teeth. It is these molecules that appear as stains on your teeth.
Afterward, your teeth will look better, but the bleaching process is not
Dr. Shawn Tokunaga will send you home with a home bleaching kit. The kit
consists of gel trays and bleaching gels. You will be instructed to wear
the gel tray every night for fourteen days. At the end of the fourteen
days, your teeth will be much more white. They’ll be so white, that you
may think that the process is over. Well, there’s still one more step.
You will make a return visit to the dentist, wherein bleaching gel will
be applied, as well as a desensitizing gel to your teeth. What happens
is that the bleaching gel cleans the stains from your teeth, but it also
unplugs the microscopic holes that make up the surface of your teeth.
And when those holes are unplugged, the teeth will become overly
sensitive. The desensitizing gel plugs those holes, thereby
desensitizing the teeth.
Two out of three patients experience no sensitivity during this process.
The ones who do experience sensitivity, rate it at less than ten
percent, and over time, the sensitivity dissipates to nothing. At the
end of this return visit, your teeth will appear even more white than
when you arrived. You will marvel at how white and natural your teeth
Once the bleaching process is done, you may wonder whether or not you
have to give up all those stain-inducing substances such as coffee, tea,
red wine, and rich food. The answer is “no.” All that is required to
maintain your white teeth is to wear the gel tray one night every four
months, and that’s it. No lifestyle changes. No pain from overly
sensitive teeth. KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System will give you a
smile you can be proud of, and one that others will be happy to see.
