Welcome to Chalet Dental Care’s blog! Today, we’re excited to delve into the transformative world of teeth whitening, particularly focusing on our KöR Whitening procedure. This blog aims to help patients understand the life-changing benefits and results of KöR teeth whitening, a leading solution for a brighter, more confident smile.

Understanding Enamel and Its Impact on Whitening

Before diving into the specifics of KöR Whitening, it’s crucial to grasp the basics of tooth enamel. Enamel, the outermost layer of our teeth, is primarily composed of hydroxyapatite crystallites, which are arranged in prisms. There are two types of enamel: Type 1, where crystallites in the core are parallel to the enamel prism, and Type 2, where they are perpendicular. This arrangement influences how enamel reacts to treatments like whitening.

Additionally, our teeth undergo daily pH cycling, causing demineralization and remineralization. The surface enamel, often called the “enamel skin,” is denser and more resistant to etching compared to the underlying layers. This density poses a challenge to treatments like whitening, as traditional methods may not penetrate this dense outer layer effectively.


The KöR Whitening Difference

KöR Whitening, an advanced teeth whitening treatment, addresses these challenges head-on. It’s designed to work at a microscopic level, penetrating the dense surface enamel to remove stains and discoloration effectively.

Treating Fluorosis and Discoloration

Fluorosis, a condition often characterized by rusty-brown areas or white spots on teeth, results from disruptions in enamel formation. KöR Whitening excels in treating these challenging areas. The process involves an “oxygenation” phase, where aggressive bleaching radicals break down and remove the discolored organic debris trapped in the enamel.

Tackling Tetracycline Stains with KöR Whitening

A particularly challenging dental concern for many patients is the treatment of tetracycline stains. These deep, dark discolorations, often a result of antibiotic use during tooth formation, have historically been difficult to address with conventional whitening methods. However, KöR Whitening at Chalet Dental Care offers a groundbreaking solution. The innovative KöR Whitening system is uniquely effective in treating tetracycline stains, owing to its robust peroxide-based formula and extended treatment protocol. This approach allows the whitening agents to penetrate deeply into the enamel, reaching and breaking down the complex stain molecules that tetracycline leaves behind. As a result, patients with tetracycline stains can now achieve significantly brighter smiles, often surpassing their initial expectations. This advanced treatment not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the teeth but also restores a sense of normalcy and confidence in individuals who have long been self-conscious about their smiles. 

Why KöR Whitening Stands Out

KöR Whitening’s effectiveness is largely due to its prolonged active whitening period, which lasts over six hours, compared to the average 20-35 minutes of other treatments. This extended duration, made possible by the KöR-Seal Whitening Trays, ensures a deep and thorough cleansing of the teeth, significantly improving the appearance of both brown and white spots caused by fluorosis.
