Dr. Bruce Wildermanoffers two in-office teeth whitening solutions at our Philadelphia, PA area practice: KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ and Zoom!® whitening treatments. Find out which of these - KöR vs. Zoom! teeth whitening - is the right teeth bleaching treatment to improve your smile.
KöR Whitening: Reduced Tooth Sensitivity
The key to the KöR whitening system is that your teeth are treated to absorb oxygen better. This makes it easier for the whitening gel to penetrate the enamel and break down discoloration and stains.
The treatment involves the use of an at-home kit every night, including a customized dental tray with professional-grade gel, for about two weeks.
Next, patients undergo an in-office whitening treatment. This short session involves the application of a breathing gel to the teeth. You may need a second session, depending on your desired results.
KöR patients can achieve make the teeth 16 shades whiter. Additionally, the at-home touch-up kit allow you to maintain your results.
Specially formulated to prevent discomfort, the KöR Whitening system is popular among patients with tooth sensitivity. If you experience sensitivity to hot and cold, or when using other teeth whitening methods, the KöR system may be the right option for you.
Zoom! Whitening: Quick, Noticeable Results
The big benefit of the Zoom! Teeth whitening system is that patients can enjoy a noticeably brighter in an hour. During your in-office session, a peroxide gel is put on the teeth. The light from a laser is applied to activate the whitening agents in the gel during three, 15-minute intervals.
