Charlotte cosmetic dentist Dr. Richard Van Gurp offers The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ system that is regarded by many leading clinicians as the best, most effective teeth whitening process ever invented. This teeth whitening technique has even been proven to be effective on teeth previously thought to be “bleaching-resistant,” such as those stained by the antibiotic, tetracycline.
What is Deep Bleaching
Dr. Van Gurp is among a handful of Charlotte dentists to offer Deep Bleaching treatment for whitening teeth. As you may have heard, Deep Bleaching is the best way to eliminate stubborn, difficult tooth stains including discoloration caused by antibiotics like tetracycline.
How Deep Bleaching Works
The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen. As the oxygen from in the whitening gel penetrates the tooth, it gently dissolves and lifts stains, leaving you with brighter, whiter teeth.
Tooth Bleaching Treatments
The secret behind the success of our teeth whitening system is two fold. First, ‘Fast’ bleaching has been shown to provide the greatest benefit when combined with an at-home tray whitening technique. Deep Bleaching combines two in-office sessions of tooth bleaching with the nightly wearing of special whitening trays between the two office visits.
The second key to success is in the fabrication process of the tooth whitening trays. Trays often fabricated in dental offices do not seal the bleach at the gum line to keep it in place. The bleach is then quickly sucked out or washed away by saliva and very little depth of bleaching occurs.
The comfortable bleaching trays made by Charlotte denitst Dr. Van Gurp fit so well that they seal the whitening gel in the trays, allowing them to be much more effective. Overnight, the bleaching material deeply penetrates the tooth creating whiter teeth.
What is the best type of teeth whitening?
With so many teeth whitening treatments on the market including those offered by dentists and kits you can buy at the grocery store, it can be hard to know which is the best treatment. The first step is to consult with your dentist. Dr. Van Gurp will evaluate your teeth and determine what type of teeth whitening is right for you.

are there any options?
Dr. Van Gurp offers several options including the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ system which is well suited for patients who have average to severe tooth discoloration. The Deep Bleaching system is effective for a wide range of tooth stains including those caused by tetracycline.
How much does teeth whitening cost?

How long does teeth whitening last?
Kor teeth whitening is a great investment because the results are permanent. You will need periodic maintenace treatment using the at-home trays to maintain the whiteness of your smile.
