Teeth Whitening

KöR Whitening Treatment Charlotte NCAt Gentry Dental, we are proud to offer our patients what we feel is the most effective teeth whitening treatment on the market. KöR Whitening is proven to remove tough stains and brighten your smile at least 6 to 10 shades, if not more. KöR has also proven effective in eliminating tetracycline and other antibiotic staining, which most whitening systems can't even touch. 

Why is KöR whitening so effective?

The reason that KöR is so effective is the science behind the system. KöR combines both in-office treatments as well as take-home treatments to achieve optimal results. The whitening gel from KöR is kept at a constant cold temperature, even during shipping to ensure that it is at its peak when it is used on a patient. KöR employs a specially designed application system, which seals the trays during the process for the best possible outcome. You will also have multiple treatments that will build upon each other to deliver what many of our patients call astonishing results.

This is different from other whitening systems, that recommend treating sensitivity with OTC desensitizers only when symptoms develop.

Kor Teeth Whitening Charlotte, NCYes! Unlike many other systems, KöR whitening truly “deep bleaches” your teeth, removing years or decades or deeply embedded stains. It does not just treat the surface of the tooth. Because of this, only periodic (a few times a year) of “touch up” bleaching at home is needed to remove surface stains of coffee, tea, etc. 

KöR whitening system utilizes both in-office and take-home whitening kits, which helps produce amazing results. This system is often able to remove old stubborn stains and discoloration.
