Kor Whitening Q & A

What is KöR Whitening?

KöR Whitening is a cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of your smile. Specifically, it uses a proprietary whitening gel, restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen molecules. The more oxygen your teeth absorb, the easier it is to eliminate stained or discolored molecules. 

Combined with at-home maintenance, KöR Whitening can make your smile brighter, whiter, and more aesthetically pleasing for months or even years to come.

If you prefer Opalescence™ whitening, the team also offers this option for teeth whitening and can tailor treatment to your preferences.

What causes teeth to change color?

Everyone experiences tooth discoloration because of aging. Your tooth enamel wears down as you age, making the yellow dentin beneath more visible. 

Several other factors may also contribute to tooth stains, including:

  • Using tobacco
  • Drinking beverages such as coffee, red wine, or black tea
  • Oral trauma
  • Taking certain medications

You might also have stained teeth if you don’t practice good oral hygiene. It’s crucial to brush and floss daily and visit The Dentists at North Cypress every six months for an oral exam and preventive teeth cleaning.

What does KöR Whitening involve?

KöR Whitening is an outpatient procedure that can make your smile up to 16 shades lighter* in a single treatment session. 

At the beginning of the procedure, your dentist covers your tongue and gums with a protective sheet. Then, they carefully apply the KöR whitening gel to the surfaces of your teeth. Your enamel absorbs the gel immediately. 

The KöR Whitening reactivates your enamel’s ability to absorb more oxygen. This process breaks through years of stains and discoloration, making your smile significantly brighter.

Your dentist repeats the same steps several times until you’re satisfied with the outcome. Then, they give you a take-home teeth whitening kit so you can maintain your results at home.


The take-home teeth whitening kit contains two removable mouthpieces and a bottle of KöR whitening gel. You wear them for several hours a day, whenever it’s convenient. Regular maintenance prevents stains from coming back, ensuring your smile stays vibrant.

Does KöR Whitening look natural?

Yes, KöR whitening gel uses a proprietary solution designed to support the health of your teeth. Your dentist  also uses a shade guide before applying the whitening solution, ensuring they select a color that blends in with your natural tooth enamel.
