Why Dental Staining Occurs

Tooth discoloration can be categorized into two classifications: extrinsic and intrinsic stains. Extrinsic discoloration affects the enamel and is caused by staining agents in our diet, such as colas, coffee, tea, and red wine. Intrinsic stains are deeper, affecting the innermost layers of a tooth. This type of discoloration can be caused by trauma, genetics, aging or certain medications.

The Science behind Teeth Whitening

All whitening products achieve results in the same fashion. Discoloration is caused by stain molecules which become trapped within the tooth structure. When bleaching gel is applied to the teeth, it breaks down into hydrogen peroxide. Eventually, this breaks further down into free radicals, which attach to the stains and lift them from the teeth.

How is KöR Different?

Once bleaching gel is created, it begins to lose its potency at room temperature. KöR requires constant refrigeration, which halts chemical degradation and preserves the gel’s potency. How KOR bleaching gel is superior to other gels is that it never is allowed to reach room temperature. It is shipped to our office on dry ice and immediately refrigerated. Furthermore, this whitening system uses KöR -Seal™ trays, which are designed for a precise fit. As a result, the trays seal out saliva, which can destroy peroxide on contact. Because of this innovative technology, KöR is even effective for eliminating tetracycline stains, which were previously considered permanent.

One common side effect of teeth whitening is dental sensitivity. KöR bleaching gel includes a desensitizing agent, which significantly reduces or eliminates this issue in the majority of patients.
