If you have unsightly stains on your teeth, perhaps it’s time to finally get rid of them. Fortunately, there are two well-known processes that deal with such stains: KoR and Zoom whitening. While both are effective, only one yields more benefits than the other. If you are thinking about undergoing stain removal from your teeth, here’s what sets KoR apart from Zoom.
If you have already tried numerous teeth-whitening products, but still haven’t achieved our desired outcome, KoR is what experts would recommend for you. This teeth-whitening treatment is ideal if you have extremely sensitive teeth since KoR’s desensitizing agents block the openings of dentinal tubules as the whitening process happens and prevents discomfort due to sensitivity.
KoR-seal trays can help your teeth achieve active whitening at a minimum of 6 hours. Other tray whitening procedures only give active whitening that only lasts about 25 to 35 minutes.
Most teeth-whitening treatments are repetitive, short-term, and expensive. KoR is more preferred by many because it’s the only teeth-whitening treatment that yields permanent results. According to dental experts, since this treatment re-oxygenates the teeth while eliminating discoloration and staining, KoR is the only teeth-whitening system that can even whiten teeth that have been damaged by tetracycline.
Part of KoR’s uniqueness is its classification as both an at-home and in-clinic treatment. Your dentist will give you the initial treatments at the clinic followed by a whitening gel you will apply nightly at home. When you finish your gel treatments, you should start wearing your KoR-seal trays once a month. These special trays are thin and comfortable to wear, so they won’t interrupt your sleep.
Zoom whitening is a teeth-bleaching treatment used widely around the world. It aims to lighten your dentin and enamel discoloration. The in-clinic Zoom procedure makes use of the Zoom Advanced Power Lamp that is believed to hasten the bleaching treatment.
Zoom takes almost one hour to complete and begins by covering the gums and lips to help expose your teeth completely. Your dentist or the dental assistant will then apply the Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel on your teeth. As the Zoom light penetrates your teeth, it breaks up the discoloration and stains. This light exposure on your gel-coated teeth will last for fifteen minutes and there will be three 15-minute sessions total so you would have to devote 45 minutes to the procedure. If you have anxiety or an extreme gag reflex, Zoom may not be the teeth-whitening procedure for you.
As you can see, the KoR teeth-whitening system is better than Zoom in terms of convenience and results.
