Don’t cover up stubborn stains – remove them with safe, comfortable, proven professional whitening

As true partners in your family’s oral health, Orion Dental Specialties advises on the many ways to safely and efficiently restore your teeth’ attractive, vibrant color. As highly qualified dental professionals, our team in Cypress, Texas, led by Drs. Melanie and Farnam Farzam also have access to powerful whitening treatments to remove even the most stubborn stains. 

Trust the “pros” at Orion Dental Specialties 

Generally, professional whitening services distinguish favorably from OTC products that claim to remove stains from the teeth in at least two notable ways: 

  • They are formulated with ingredients which have been clinically proven to effectively and safely break up stains. 
  • They are sufficiently concentrated with these ingredients. So, they are strong enough to make a noticeable difference in the color and appearance of your teeth.

Dental offices like ours essentially apply these powerful and proven whitening products via trays designed to fit the unique contours of your mouth. These trays are prepared by the patient and worn each day from the comfort of home. When worn properly and consistently, the bleaching ingredients are delivered evenly to the teeth. Patients notice that their teeth appear gradually whiter throughout treatment. Patients who do not want the “wait” may be good candidates for in-office treatments. Dr. Melanie or Dr. Farnam will “paint on” the whitening gel. These professional-grade gels are generally activated by light to support the quickest treatment. This procedure can whiten teeth by several shades in just one appointment. 

A note on KöR® for stubborn discoloration  

A product of years of research and tests, KöR® is characterized as a “deep bleaching system.” It is designed to remove even the most stubborn discoloration; for instance, early and excessive antibiotic use can cause dark grayish staining. Such discoloration has traditionally been considered “resistant” to other professional whitening methods. Patients with these stains might have to cover up the discoloration with restorations like veneers or crowns. KöR® presents a conservative way to effectively, safely, and comfortably remove such intrinsic or stubborn stains. 

Its “magic” comes from KöR’s proprietary gel, which restores the capacity of the teeth to absorb the oxygen associated with the product. As the oxygen is absorbed deeply by the teeth, stains are dissolved at the molecular level. Additionally, the system contains desensitizers that actively plug the microscopic tubules responsible for whitening-related tooth sensitivity. While enamel looks smooth, it contains tiny tubes that may allow bleaching ingredients to seep into the softer, underlying dentin layer. This can trigger the nerves inside the tooth, resulting in sensitivity and discomfort. By plugging up these pores, this process is avoided.
