What is KöR Teeth Whitening?

KöR whitening system is used worldwide and is the most reliable and effective whitening system ever developed. The whitening system is very versatile, super-effective, and provides exceptional results. KöR is the only recognized whitening system, that whitens tetracycline-stained (dark) teeth in a short time (previously considered impossible). The KöR system works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen.  The oxygen from KöR’s whitening gel (Hydremide Peroxide) is absorbed deep into the tooth structure more than any other bleaching products. 

It removes all stain molecules, leaving your teeth incredibly white.  This is a comfortable, safe, effective, and convenient cosmetic dentistry procedure, that can improve the appearance of teeth, to restore self-esteem and self-confidence for teenagers and adults.  KöR whitening results can last many years, giving a near-permanent whitening solution for patients who follow the proper maintenance.  Achieve the smile you have always wanted!  Call Dr. Rink to schedule an evaluation to achieve that brilliant winning smile!

Teeth Whitening Options

Combination of At-Home & In-Office Therapy

This is the most effective and predictable option when trying to achieve whiter teeth. We offer three different types of KöR systems for treatment:

  • KöR Max is a versatile and super-effective whitening system that uses a combination of at-home whitening with in-office teeth whitening. This is the best teeth whitening option for the typical patient.
  • KöR Ultra Whitening System gives remarkable whitening results on stubborn cases such as patients suffering from fluorosis or dark geriatric staining.
  • KöR Ultra T Whitening System is specifically developed to deliver truly exceptional results on cases of antibiotic staining that was once thought to be untreatable.

At-Home Whitening Only

KöR Home is an at-home whitening system that provides patients with exceptional results at a great price. This two-week day and night treatment is the next most effective option for teeth whitening.

In-Office Whitening Only

KöR Power Whitening: Though no in-office-only whitening system is scientifically capable of predictable, long-lasting results, KöR’s in-Office Power Whitening system provides the most effective in-office whitening possible. This option may be used for patients who object to wearing whitening trays at home; however, they should understand that whitening results of any in-office-only power whitening system are more unpredictable than other options and may need to be repeated in the future to maintain whiteness.

Who is a Good Candidate For KöR Teeth Whitening?

Nearly anyone whose adult teeth have fully developed, and who wishes to brighten his or her smile, is a good candidate for teeth whitening in Charleston, SC. If you are considering a porcelain veneer, or if you are in need of a dental crown or bridge, you may want to consider having your teeth whitened first. That way, your custom veneer or restoration can be color-matched to your bright new smile, creating a beautiful overall enhancement.

What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

Over-the-counter products can take weeks to show an impact, but our dentist can brighten your teeth by several shades in just one short appointment. By removing surface stains, you'll likely find yourself smiling more often and more easily. This simple treatment can boost your confidence and even improve your mood.

What is In-Office Teeth Whitening in Charleston?

Our Charleston cosmetic dentistry office, serving Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, and nearby areas, uses KöR Ultra to provide dramatic results in about two hours. This type of teeth whitening relies on a powerful whitening gel to eliminate very deep dental stains.

First, a special guard is placed in the mouth to isolate the teeth and protect the soft tissues. Next, a hydrogen peroxide-based gel is applied to the teeth. After about 15 minutes, the gel is removed, and a new coat of gel is applied. This process is repeated a total of three times. Finally, you will leave our office with a dazzling smile that will continue to lighten over the next couple of days.

Dr. Rink genuinely cares about his patients, and when I had a tooth “emergency” on Sunday I called his office just meaning to leave a message to see him Monday. He called me back in 5 minutes to get me in on Sunday so I didn’t have to miss work! He’s a great talented dentist and an awesome person in general.

Opalescence Go Take-home Teeth Whitening System

Opalescence Go whitening is a prefilled whitening tray system.  The trays are prefilled with a professional-strength whitening solution of hydrogen peroxide. The ultra-fit tray easily conforms to any smile and is ready to use right out of the box.  It’s fast, simple, and effective.  This is excellent for the person on the go, that wants a little boost to get to a more confident smile quickly and easily. The duration of your treatment, and the frequency with which you apply the whitening agent, will depend on the severity of your dental discoloration, and the level of brightness you wish to achieve.

How can I maintain my results?

KöR teeth whitening can produce incredible long-term effects, which you can maximize by taking measures to avoid staining your teeth. For the first twenty-four hours after treatment, you should avoid dark soda, berries, red wine, mustard, coffee, and other foods that can stain your teeth. Refraining from tobacco use is also always highly recommended. 

If you return to drinking tea and coffee, try to use a straw. If you enjoy red wine, don't immediately run for your toothbrush – the acidic wine can temporarily weaken tooth enamel, and brushing may cause more harm than good at that point. Instead, try chasing your wine with some soda water, or a piece of broccoli, which provides your teeth with a natural and very gentle scrubbing. As always, regular brushing and flossing can also go a long way toward helping you maintain white teeth. If you would like to schedule a consultation, contact our office to receive some of the best teeth whitening Charleston has to offer.
