Erin Fontenot DDS incorporates a wide variety of options for teeth whitening but primarily uses KöR. Recognized as an extremely effective teeth whitening system, KöR offers cost-effective dental & home whitening kits. Learn more about this revolutionary teeth whitening offering in Lafayette.
KöR Whitening is the first company to cold pack their products, constantly refrigerating a full line of teeth whitening products from the moment of manufacture, until you receive them.
Why cold packing? With KöR Whitening systems you get exceptionally effective gels with lower sensitivity and less risk of pain. When KöR gels (with no chemical stabilizers) are placed onto the warm teeth, they break down with extraordinary effectiveness.
Perfect Teeth Whitening Solution
That perfect job interview, a storybook wedding, spacial time in your life when you want the memories to be perfect. Patients often have a specific reason for whitening their teeth, but then discover how easy and effective it is for on-going whitening. The KoR Whitening system has a proprietary Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel Hydremide Peroxide formulation and delivery system. And why we insist on continuous refrigeration of our whitening gels from the moment of manufacture until they arrive at the dental office.
Without Lights and Lasers
Our patients typically have previous experience with home-based teeth whitening systems, having tried the trendy bleaching lights and lasers. Like many others, they have found out that they just don’t work as advertised. Dental office whitening is the only means to truly white teeth.
That’s why KoR developed the proprietary KöR Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel™ Hydremide® Peroxide formulation and delivery system, delivering phenomenal teeth whitening results – without lights or lasers. Let us show you how effective this tool is.
How Does KöR Work?
From the KoR website…“Continuously refrigerated, high-potency gels, together with a scientifically designed application protocol, deliver predictably exceptional results.
Teeth whitening can often be a frustrating, problematic and unpredictable proposition. Historically, whitening system companies have promised ease-of-use, outstanding results and happy patients.
But you’ve probably experienced a gap between what’s promised and what’s delivered. Most dentists providing teeth whitening have been frustrated with a lack of predictability, effectiveness, and longevity of effect, as well as complaints of sensitivity by patients.
Intrinsic tooth color is a result of large natural pigment and stain molecules trapped within the microstructure of teeth. The larger these molecules are, the more chromophores they contain, and the darker the teeth appear.
All peroxide gels work by forming hydrogen peroxide as their end product. Hydrogen peroxide breaks down to water, oxygen, and numerous radicals and byproducts known as “bleaching factors” that lighten teeth.”
“Optimum whitening results are achieved only when these whitening gels are: fully potent; chemically influenced to produce a high percentage of free radicals (instead of simply oxygen and water); and are allowed extended time for these factors to diffuse thoroughly into the microstructure of teeth.
Clinical Research Associates (CRA) as well as other researchers have found that whitening gel in conventional whitening trays is only strongly active for 25-35 minutes. This is due to rapid contamination of the whitening gel by saliva.
Both saliva and sulcular fluid contain an abundance of the anti-oxidant enzyme peroxidase. When filling a set of upper and lower whitening trays with whitening gel, approximately 6.5mg of peroxide is placed in the trays. Saliva is capable of destroying a full 29mg of peroxide per minute! It takes very little contamination of the whitening gel in the trays by saliva to destroy whitening gel on contact.
KöR whitening KöR-Seal™ trays are specifically designed to seal both saliva and sulcular fluid out of the whitening trays. These trays, in combination with KöR whitening gels provide 6 to 10 hours of whitening activity compared to the typical 25-35 minutes of other systems.
The result is a thorough cleansing of debris from between enamel prisms (interprismatic spaces), and within enamel prisms (intraprismatic spaces and intracrystalline spaces), rejuvenating the enamel back to its youthful ability to whiten quickly and thoroughly — delivering truly amazing whiteness.”
