Wake Forest dentist’s teeth whitening treatment helps prevent sensitivity
You may have thought a brighter smile was out of reach due to dental discomfort. Concerns over teeth whitening sensitivity in Wake Forest are eliminated with Dr. Edmond Suh’s use of an advanced gel.
An introduction to KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System
A product of years of research and tests, KöR is designed to remove even the most stubborn discoloration resulting from antibiotics such as tetracycline. It is an effective way to remove intrinsic or very dark stains comfortably.
KöR contains desensitizers, which helps avoid the sensitivity associated with bleaching treatments. When tooth enamel erodes due to decay or wear, the dentin layer can become exposed. Sensitivity arises when the heat or cold seeps through the microscopic tubes in the dentin, triggering the nerves inside the pulp in the center of the tooth.
Damage to natural teeth or to restorations placed to treat decay isn’t the only cause of this painful condition. Bleaching can make teeth extra-sensitive due to the very oxygenation process that lifts even those deep or internal stains. Traditionally, these powerful techniques have displaced the natural plugs in those microscopic tubes.
Other systems’ answers to this painful problem have typically involved masking the symptoms, but they do not eliminate the inflammation in the pulp or nerves in the center of the tooth. KöR features desensitizers that prevent sensitivity from occurring in the first place. KöR is designed to actively affect the tubules, so the bleaching ingredients don’t produce the reaction that makes teeth vulnerable to painful pulpal inflammation and sensitivity.
Dr. Suh not only selects advanced bleaching systems for the most effective and comfortable experience, but also under his supervision, whitening with either KöR or Zoom! is safe and precise, and doesn’t cause irritation or damage to surrounding tissues.
