After talking to the KöR Whitening team at the booth, I was impressed by KöR developer Dr. Rod Kurthy's years of research and development into the science of bleaching. The result--a unique solution that works.
What convinced me to try KöR? The prospect of less or no sensitivity, significant color shifts (even for tetracycline staining), and long-lasting and even lifetime color stability.
I?d always found bleaching sensitivity, and even downright pain, to be a big problem with my patients. KöR's low osmolarity and daily at-home tubule-plugging desensitizer is key. So far not a single patient has complained of sensitivity. I am currently treating a patient with post-perio-surgery recession and I can confidently use KöR in those exposed areas.
Major shade shift
I have been amazed by the consistent degree of whitening that KöR provides, even for difficult cases. I recently had a patient whose teeth were a very dark opalescent gray (not tetracycline staining), and the results were amazing. I regularly get huge jumps in whiteness, from the dark end of the shade guide, all the way into the bleaching shades.
KöR IS different
There are a number of features of KöR Whitening that make it uniquely effective and predictable. Dr. Kurthy?s diligence in keeping all KöR gels refrigerated from the time of manufacture until they get to my office has made a huge difference.
Also distinctive is the recommended impression-taking technique for tray fabrication. It?s a very specific putty/wash procedure, so that the bleaching trays can be extremely accurate and sealed at the cervical of the teeth to keep out damaging saliva and sulcular fluid. There?s just a slight learning curve, but after my second case, I could do it with my eyes closed. Incidentally, KöR has its own lab that fabricates not only the very unique KöR bleaching trays at an extremely low cost, but trays for desensitizing as well. It saves me a lot of time and energy in the office.
Furthermore, Dr. Kurthy developed the KöR proprietary gels and delivery system based on his years of research and development. It?s a mouthful--Dual Activated, Tri-Barrel Hydremide® Peroxide?but simply, it saves me chairtime and money.
Since I?ve been using KöR Whitening, my practice has benefited from growing referrals from satisfied patients of friends and family. My staff is excited and energized. And my patients couldn?t be happier about the great results with no sensitivity.
