Although tooth enamel feels like a hard, nonporous substance, it is actually one type of tissue composing the human tooth. Because of its tissue-like properties and microscopic surface grooves, dental enamel is vulnerable to staining and discoloration. Additionally, stained teeth enamel often fails to respond to over the counter whitening strips, gels or “whitening” toothpaste because these products contain ineffective ingredients or overly harsh ingredients that can actually erode enamel and cause tooth sensitivity.

Why Visit a Teeth Whitening Dentist?

With years of experience whitening patients’ teeth, Dr. Vartikar is an expert at transforming dull smiles into grins glowing with white, healthy-looking teeth. Whitening treatments provided by Dr. Vartikar contain enamel-friendly ingredients that dissolve stains by breaking down “stain” molecules, leaving teeth gleaming and free of discolorations. Nirvana Dental patients opting for a dentist-provided teeth whitening treatment will see desired shades of white they never thought possible while using ineffective, commercial teeth whitening products.

Why Teeth Become Stained

Dental enamel readily absorbs colorings and dyes found in food, beverages and tobacco products. Unless a teeth bleaching gel contains special oxygenating molecules that can break up and eliminate embedded stains, discolored teeth will remain darkened or yellowed no matter how many times an OTC whitening gel is applied to teeth.

Many stains can be removed by your Bedford, Euless, & Colleyville TX teeth whitening dentist during a regular cleaning visit. However, intrinsic stains may not be removable because they have developed within the tooth rather than on the tooth's enamel. Intrinsic staining occurs to permanent teeth that have not yet erupted. Unerupted teeth that are exposed to strong medications, specifically antibiotics, may develop discoloration while they are still submerged in the gums. To restore the attractiveness of teeth stained by medications, Dr. Vartikar may recommend KöR Whitening to reduce the appearance of intrinsic stains.

What is the KöR Whitening System?

Clinically researched and developed to significantly improve on OTC whitening products, specifically, their failure to reduce intrinsic staining and tooth sensitivity, the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System offers a combination of in-office and at-home treatments to optimize final results. The KöR whitening system involves patients wearing mouth trays custom-molded to fit securely over your teeth. Whitening gel used provides over six hours of teeth whitening activity compared to the 30 minutes provided by other whitening gels. If you choose the deep bleaching option, the at-home part of the whitening process is followed by one, in-office whitening treatment using a combination of carbamide peroxide and Hydremide® peroxide solutions.

KöR Whitening remains refrigerated to keep ingredients fresher and to help reduce sensitivity associated with bleaching gels. For people with severe tooth sensitivity,  Dr. Vartikar can apply KöR Desensitizer following an in-office whitening session to desensitize teeth.

Two of the best things about the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System is its ability to reduce the appearance of tetracycline stains and to keep your teeth white for years. This is because KöR ingredients enhance a tooth's ability to absorb oxygen molecules found in the bleaching gel. Oxygen molecules exert strong, strain-removing properties by continuously dissolving stains and discolorations.

Your dentist will examine your teeth before proceeding with the treatment to determine the extent of staining. He will also discuss your expectations and answer any other questions you may have about the teeth whitening process.
