Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures around the world. People often don’t realize it, but the natural color of human teeth is not white. Instead, it is more common to see yellow, gray, and off-white smiles.
However, having a white smile has often been associated with oral health, wellness, and physical attractiveness. This perception has only increased with the onset of visual media like TV, movies, and social platforms like Facebook and Instagram.
In keeping with modern trends, we at All Smiles Dental Care now offer KöR teeth whitening in Hazlet, NJ, for our patients.
During teeth whitening, a peroxide solution is applied to the teeth as a gel or foam. This gel is exposed to a unique light, which breaks down the peroxide into its base components, generating oxygen. The oxygen penetrates the enamel of the teeth, breaking up stains and eliminating them from your smile.
In general, teeth whitening can be done in an office like ours or from the comfort of your own home. However, an at-home kit should be purchased from a dentist, as the ones that circulate the internet may contain harmful ingredients or do not provide adequate instructions.
KöR is unique compared to other peroxide bleaching solutions because it is kept continuously chilled to prevent the solution from breaking down before it is applied to a patient’s teeth. This means the gel is more potent and can lift stains that are more deeply embedded in your dental enamel.
KöR also does not require the light used during other treatments and is effective for 6 to 10 hours rather than the standard 35 minutes. This means you get whiter, brighter teeth without needing multiple appointments.
