Young, healthy teeth are white. It’s deep in our minds and an automatic reaction that when we see teeth that aren’t so white we assume that they are probably the opposite: older and maybe not so healthy. If you are concerned that this is what your teeth are saying about you, then maybe KöR teeth whitening can help. The KöR teeth whitening formula is both stronger and gentler—it whitens stains others can’t, and causes less sensitivity than other teeth whitening options.
What Causes Teeth Staining
The most common cause of tooth discoloration is that your teeth have become stained by exposure to dark-colored chemicals. Many of these chemicals can be found in everyday substances, such as:
- Red Wine
- Dark Beer
Although the above are the worst culprits for teeth staining, your teeth can also be stained by some surprising sources, such as apples and potatoes. The good news is that no matter the source, teeth whitening can break down the stain compounds that have become embedded in your tooth enamel.
Professional teeth whitening can be used to rapidly break down many of these compounds to give you a dramatically whiter smile in a short period of time, generally less than an hour.
Advantages of KöR Teeth Whitening
KöR teeth whitening isn’t an in-office teeth whitening procedure. It’s teeth whitening that takes place at home. You put whitening compound in the custom-fitted whitening trays and wear them at night. These custom-fitted trays provide a better seal than other teeth whitening trays you may have used. This makes them more effective because it prevents saliva from diluting and breaking down the whitening compounds. It also makes them more comfortable because the whitener doesn’t leak out and irritate your gums. And KöR teeth whitening is specially formulated to reduce sensitivity associated with whitening.
The gradual whitening provides a more natural result that many people appreciate because it’s subtle. Because it happens over time, KöR teeth whitening can give you better results. It can even remove stains from tetracycline antibiotics, previously thought impossible. And you can maintain the results yourself, so they’re essentially permanent!
Limits of Teeth Whitening
Although KöR teeth whitening is able to combat more stains than we previously thought possible, it is still limited in its effectiveness. It cannot combat discoloration that’s due to other causes, such as a dead or injured tooth, thin enamel, or tooth enamel that is just not as white as you might like.
However, even then we have options, such as porcelain veneers. No matter what, you can have a smile that you will be proud and happy to show.
