KoR Whitening: Phenomenal Whitening Results
EVOLVE DENTAL TECHNOLOGIES
The proprietary Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel Hydremide Peroxide formulation and delivery system was developed to deliver phenomenal whitening results without lights or lasers
Teeth whitening can often be a frustrating, problematic, and unpredictable proposition. Many whitening companies are quick to promise ease of use, outstanding results, and happy patients. But the reality is that patients often see a gap between what’s expected and what’s delivered.
The KöR Whitening system from Evolve Dental Technologies allows clinicians to bridge this gap through a unique, science-based formulation and protocol that greatly enhance the whitening gel’s ability to rapidly penetrate tooth microstructure and provide the most effective in-office whitening possible.
The Keys to Consistent Results
KöR’s Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel Hydremide Peroxide formulation and delivery system is the first and only whitening system to employ a unique tri-barrel configuration, instead of the typical dual-barrel system. The ability to keep the chemistry separated into 3 isolated chambers allows more ingredients to be added—creating the most effective formulation.
Another key KöR feature is constant refrigeration, which virtually stops the breakdown of whitening gels and protects against potency-robbing heat damage during storage and shipping. Continuous refrigeration also eliminates the need for chemical stabilizers. With no chemical stabilizers, KöR gels are far more unstable when placed on the teeth. That instability, matched with a potency that is the same as the day the gels were made, leads to extraordinary effectiveness.
"With other whitening systems, there was a lot of uncertainty regarding the exact results that would be achieved."
The glutathione peroxidase enzyme found in saliva and sulcular fluid destroys peroxide on contact. Leakage of saliva and sulcular fluid into conventional whitening trays results in only 20 to 35 minutes of significant whitening activity. The unique design of KöR-Seal Whitening trays effectively seals in whitening gel, and seals out damaging saliva and sulcular fluid. The result is 6 to 10 hours of strong whitening activity and far more significant results.
Confidence in Whitening Treatment
KöR Whitening has allowed Dr. Jesse Ritter—a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) who focuses on transformational cosmetic and restorative dentistry at Smile Solutions of Baltimore—to present whitening treatment to his patients with greater confidence. “With other whitening systems, there was a lot of uncertainty regarding the exact results that would be achieved,” he said. “But with KöR Whitening, those worries are gone. I can now confidently recommend whitening to patients, even those with deep intrinsic and tetracycline staining who I would have never even considered recommending whitening treatment to."
Being able to now exceed every patient’s whitening expectations, virtually every time, has instilled greater trust by his patients in his other treatment recommendations. When patients enjoy truly white results, they have more interest in their smile, find other defects, and request additional treatment such as correcting chips, gaps, and replacing old crowns.
KöR Home offers daytime or nighttime whitening formulations for patients who prefer to whiten at home, while KöR MAX—Evolve’s best-selling system— combines 2 weeks of at-home nighttime whitening with a single in-office whitening visit. KöR Ultra is ideal for stubborn cases involving fluorosis and dark geriatric straining, and KöR Ultra-T delivers excellent results to patients with tetracycline staining.
“The KöR Whitening system allows you to customize your whitening approach to each individual patient, instead of hoping that a one-size-fits-all system will do the trick,” Dr. Ritter concluded.
Transforming A Patient’s Smile with KÖR Ultra
Although I've been accustomed to achieving consistently excellent results for my patients using KöR Whitening products over the years, seeing the results this particular patient achieved completely shocked me. When I saw just how profoundly KöR Ultra transformed his smile, I knew I was working with a next-level whitening product. The treatment protocol for KöR Ultra involves inoffice conditioning using KöR 13% Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel Hydremide Peroxide gel delivered in KöR-Seal Whitening Trays; 4 weeks of at-home nighttime whitening; and a final in-office whitening visit using KöR 34% gel. In this case, following the whitening treatment, we covered abfractions and recession areas with composite, along with finishing and polishing.
3 Things Every Dentist Should Know About KoR
How does KöR Whitening combat sensitivity?
KöR whitening gels use desensitizers that plug the orifices of dentinal tubules during whitening to prevent sensitivity, rather than simply attempting to treat the symptoms.
What makes KöR Whitening permanent?
By allowing pigments and stain molecules to be fully flooded by bleaching factors, the KöR Whitening System is able to fully rejuvenate and restore teeth to their youthful ability.
Why is continuous refrigeration necessary?
Exposing whitening gels to high heat degrades the potency of the gel more quickly. Continuous refrigeration ensures that dental offices receive whitening gels with virtually 100% effectiveness
