Most people have only one question when it comes to teeth whitening. Is it safe for my teeth?
While it may seem that whitening is an abrasive process that could potentially harm teeth, I do not see that. Even people that stay on top of their teeth looking their best and whitest do usually not have extra sensitivities or crumbling brittle teeth.
I chose KӧR system for it’s methodical approach to whitening and it’s natural looking result that does not look like you just had your teeth bleached. If you’re looking for safe teeth whitening in Stamford, CT, contact our office for a consultation.

A patient-pleasing at-home whitening system that consistently yields amazing results at a great price. The KöR Home Whitening System is available for nighttime whitening as well as daytime whitening.

How does KöR work?
Continuously refrigerated, high-potency gels, together with a scientifically designed application protocol, deliver predictably exceptional results.
Intrinsic tooth color is a result of natural pigment and stain molecules trapped within the microstructure of teeth. The larger these molecules are, the more chromophores they contain, and the darker the teeth appear.
All peroxide gels work by forming hydrogen peroxide as their end product. Hydrogen peroxide breaks down to water, oxygen, and numerous radicals and byproducts known as “bleaching factors” that lighten teeth.
Optimum whitening results are achieved when whitening gel is:
- Fully potent. Chemically influenced to produce a high percentage of free radicals (instead of simply oxygen and water).
- Is allowed extended time for these factors to diffuse thoroughly into the microstructure of teeth.
Clinical Research Associates (CRA) as well as other researchers have found that whitening gel in conventional whitening trays is only strongly active for 25-35 minutes. This is due to rapid contamination of the whitening gel by saliva.
Both saliva and sulcular fluid contain an abundance of the anti-oxidant enzyme peroxidase. When filling a set of upper and lower whitening trays with whitening gel, approximately 6.5mg of peroxide is placed in the trays. Saliva is capable of destroying a full 29mg of peroxide per minute! It takes very little contamination of the whitening gel in the trays by saliva to destroy whitening gel on contact.
KöR whitening KöR-Seal™ trays are specifically designed to seal both saliva and sulcular fluid out of the whitening trays. These trays, in combination with KöR Whitening’s continuously refrigerated Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel™ Hydremide® Peroxide Technology provide 6 to 10 hours of whitening activity compared to the typical 25-35 minutes.
The result is a thorough cleansing of debris from between enamel rods, rejuvenating the enamel and delivering truly amazing whiteness. Dr. Kundel helps patients across Stamford, CT and New York City for safe teeth whitening services.
