KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ - Teeth Whitening That Works

Kor Whitening
The  KöR System whitens even the deepest stains
Teeth Whitening is a conservative and safe way to improve your smile. There are many systems available for  professional in-office, take home, and over the counter solutions. We have tried different ones at The Baltimore Center for Laser Dentistry and have never been totally satisfied with the results until we discovered the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ a few years ago. The results have been remarkable.

This system solves the two major problems hindering true, deep whitening of teeth: ill fitting trays and bleach stability.....

  • The  KöR company makes excellent fitting bleaching trays from a highly accurate impression of the patients teeth. Most trays are so leaky that the peroxide gels leak out in a few minutes. These custom trays allow for the long term exposure needed to truly deep whiten enamel.
  • The whitening gels are shipped cold and kept refrigerated at all times. Peroxides degrade rapidly at room temperature. The  KöR gels use a proprietary formula to maximize bleaching power and keeping them cool preserves this powerful whitening ability.

What is Laser Dentistry?

What is Laser Dentistry? Simply put, lasers can replace both the drill and scalpel for most dental procedures. Dental procedures are more comfortable both during and after they are done.

Benefits for the patient include……

  • Less need for needles – Most fillings can be done without getting numb. Experienced laser dentists only give a shot for about 10-20 percent of the fillings they do. The majority of small to medium sized fillings are done needle free.
  • Less use of the drill – The noise and feel of the high speed dental drill is one of the more unpleasant parts of the dental experience. Even numbed patients report a more comfortable experience without the noise and vibration of the high speed drill.
  • Faster Healing Times - Laser procedures are less traumatic to mouth tissues so things heal faster than traditional techniques.
  • Less Post-Op Pain – Patients consistently report a more comfortable post-operative experience when dental lasers are used for oral surgical and periodontal procedures
