Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Mar 12, 2013

Bright, white teeth can freshen a patient’s appearance and take years off of the appearance of a patient’s smile. Our Elmhurst cosmetic dentists are proud to offer the KöR whitening system to our patients. This whitening system is gentle, effective, and simple to maintain! Read on to get the answers to your questions about KöR whitening…

Q: So, how exactly does KöR treatment whiten teeth?

A: Oxygen helps to lift stains from the dental enamel. The KöR whitening formula enables your teeth to absorb more oxygen—this dissolves stain molecules and brightens the appearance of your enamel!

Q: How effective is it?

A: The KöR whitening system is highly effective—it delivers stunning results. Many patients are able to lighten their teeth by several shades, up to 16 shades for some patients. The KöR whitening system even whitens tetracycline stained teeth! At your consultation our dental team can give you a better idea of what kind of results you can expect.

Q: How old do I have to be to use KöR whitening?

A: This whitening system is suitable for almost all ages! You can use KöR from the time you’re an adolescent until you’re, well, 100!

Q: What about dental staining after KöR treatment? Can foods and drinks still discolor my enamel?

A: Yes, your teeth will still be susceptible to staining substances—like wine, coffee, and tea—after you have them whitened. The good news is that with simple maintenance treatments, you can keep your smile bright despite these staining substances!
