What is the best way to whiten my teeth?

Smile in Style is proud to offer KöR Teeth Whitening for our patients. It is a unique product, formulated for optimal effectiveness, predictability, and lasting results, with minimal tooth sensitivity. It delivers beautiful results, even with many challenging types of stains on teeth.

The KOR difference

Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical compound that breaks down into water and oxygen. A side effect of this process is the release of by-products, which have been dubbed “bleaching factors.” They lighten teeth in two ways. Intrinsic discoloration results from stain molecules and pigments embedded in the tooth microstructure. Larger particles cause darker stains. Oxygenation helps disintegrate large stain molecules. Additionally, free radicals and other bleaching factors break them down into colourless molecules.

In order to deliver optimal results, the formula must retain full potency by being refrigerated during shipping and storage. In addition it must be formulated to create a high percentage of bleaching factors. KöR was developed from extensive clinical research to achieve just that.

The keys to the remarkable effectiveness of KöR are:

  • Precise formula, which has been designed to consistently produce a high level of free radicals
  • The product is kept at the optimal temperature, with refrigerated shipping and storage to preserve potency. There are very few whitening products on the market that refrigerate their whitening material during shipping to preserve their effectiveness.
  • KöR-Seal™ trays prevent saliva and other fluids from mixing with the bleaching gel, allowing it to remain active for longer

Health and Safety

Teeth whitening, when administered properly, is not harmful. The science behind the KöR Whitening System includes extensive studies of tooth pain or sensitivity and how to prevent it. Buffering agents in the formula help maintain a consistent and non-acidic pH level, which significantly reduces sensitivity, while improving results. The KöR Whitening System does not require any activation lights, so you won’t have to worry about enamel dehydration or UV exposure.

Let us put this beautiful science to work for you and let you see the difference that the KöR Whitening System can do for you! We have two convenient practice locations, serving residents throughout the Melbourne area.

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
