Keep It Cool For A White Hot Smile
- March 1, 2016
The exterior of your house is a mess. Your neighbor was in the same position last year, but now the outside of his house looks great.
The dirt and grime are completely gone. The siding looks practically new. When you asked him how he did it, he explained that he got professional help with a pressure washer.
The pressure washer took off years of dirt and stain in almost no time, and he was happy with the results.
Now, imagine a similar conversation, only instead of your house, you are talking about your teeth. What would have stain-removing power like the pressure washer? The answer is KöR teeth whitening at the office of Robert I. Hlavac, Dental Corporation.

Why Do You Want Whiter Teeth?
We live in a world where millions of photographs are posted online every single day. Because of social media, your photo could be shared with hundreds or thousands of people in an instant, whether you want it to be shared or not.
Unfortunately, around 7 in 10 Americans would like to change their smiles, according to a recent survey conducted by Morpace, Inc. Stained and yellow teeth are easily one of the most common reasons many people are unhappy with their smiles.
We drink a lot of coffee, soft drinks, and tea, all of which contribute to teeth stains. A lot of the foods we eat, including soy and pasta sauces, add to the problem.
And tobacco use, well, that takes teeth staining to another level.
But even if you don’t use tobacco, even if you aren’t a heavy coffee, soft drink, or tea drinker, you will probably experience yellow teeth as you get older.
In some ways, stained teeth become inevitable with time. The longer we use anything — cars, clothes, or teeth — the less likely they are to look brand new.
And unlike cars and clothes, we have our teeth for life.
This is why professional teeth whitening can make a big difference.
How Teeth Whitening Works
Many teeth whitening products use similar active ingredients to remove stains from your teeth. Hydrogen peroxide is one of the most common whitening agents.
It can be found in both commercial and professional products. The key difference between them is that professional products have much higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide than commercial products do.
This is sort of like the difference in cleaning power between a pressure washer and your garden hose. Both use water, but one is clearly more effective than the other. Even if you have one of those spray attachments, your garden hose is not going to clean your house or your driveway as well or as quickly as a pressure washer.
Likewise, commercial products are not going to removing the stains on your teeth as well as professional whitening products.
The KöR Advantage
KöR is one of the most effective whitening products on the market today, which is why we offer it to our patients in and around Concord, CA.
Two things, in particular, can weaken the effects of whitening products — saliva and temperature. The people who make KöR have taken both of those factors into account.
First, KöR uses special trays that seal off as much saliva as possible during the whitening process. This helps the product remain potent throughout your treatment.
Second, KöR keeps its products refrigerated from the time they are manufactured until they are delivered.
Peroxide-based whitening agents are unstable. This is intentional because it helps them remove your stains. Unfortunately, these products break down faster when they are exposed to warm temperatures. Storing them in a warm warehouse can make them weaker before they get to the dentist office, where they are applied to your teeth.
By keeping their products cold, KöR preserves the potency of their gels. This is one of the reasons their products are more effective than similar whitening gels.
