Introduction to KöR Teeth Whitening
In our West Village dental office, Dr. Keith Bracy utilizes KöR Whitening for exceptionally white teeth and consistent results. Professional teeth whitening is a fun and safe cosmetic dental procedure that can take years off your appearance and improve your confidence in just one dentist visit.
The market for teeth whitening products has grown exponentially; you might have already tried common teeth whitening products like Crest Whitestrips or Zoom! Whitening. Many patients report disappointing results, which is why Dr. Bracy specializes in the best teeth whitening system, KöR.
Teeth whitening is a booming industry, as you can witness when you walk down the beauty section of your grocery store. The problem with in-store teeth whitening kits is their inefficiency; they simply are not potent enough to make a noticeable difference. Even worse, some contain abrasive ingredients that destroy your enamel and ultimately make your teeth look worse than before. Don't waste your time and money on products that won't work. The only way to really whiten your teeth is through professional whitening treatment.

Why KöR Whitening?
Dr. Bracy is a top NYC KöR Whitening provider and only uses KöR due to consistent results. The KöR teeth whitening system is reliable because of the continuously refrigerated, high-potency teeth bleach applied using scientific protocols.
Every step of the KöR process is highly detailed to ensure the whitest shade of teeth. There are no gimmicky lights or abrasive charcoal whitening toothpaste to apply. Instead, you'll find a meticulous process to produce exceptional results.
Steps in the KöR Whitening Process
First, Dr. Bracy will select the KöR Whitening protocol that best fits your unique needs during your complimentary KöR Whitening consultation.
The whitening systems vary by the amount of at-home applications and in-office treatments you receive. We will go over your current and desired teeth shades using a shade guide. Next, photos of your teeth will be taken so that you can track the “before” and “after” results.
Then, Dr. Bracy will take impressions of your teeth using a proprietary method called the KöR Bite-Down technique that ensures accurate teeth molds. Next, we will send your impressions to the KöR laboratory where they will make custom KöR-seal whitening trays. The trays are fabricated in painstaking detail by technicians specializing in the best-sealed whitening trays. The accuracy of the dental impression and whitening tray are integral for optimum teeth whitening. Any slight error or loose fit will allow saliva to get into the tray and dilute the teeth whitening bleach.
Your highly potent KöR teeth bleach gel and custom whitening trays will arrive by overnight, refrigerated shipping to our New York City dental office. Using fresh KöR teeth bleach and refrigerated shipping is crucial since time and heat hinder the efficacy of the teeth bleach. Dr. Bracy will deliver your whitening trays and start you on your whitening protocol, depending on the KöR system selected.
Most cases involve two weeks of at-home teeth whitening and then one in-office whitening session. However, tetracycline and more complicated cases will be prescribed a different application protocol. The method of application will be reviewed thoroughly with Dr. Bracy since this affects the whitening results.
After you complete your whitening protocol, you’ll finally have the white teeth you’ve always wanted. A maintenance protocol consisting of at-home “touch-up” sessions will ensure your results are long-lasting and permanent. We will work with you to make sure you get the shade you want as comfortably as possible.
Will My Teeth Be Sensitive from KöR Whitening?
Most patients report minimal discomfort and sensitivity when using KöR. The system comes with a proprietary desensitizing agent that is applied daily to your teeth. Dr. Bracy also recommended patients use Sensodyne toothpaste for two weeks before starting their professional teeth whitening.
I Have Tetracycline Stains. Will KöR Work?
Yes, there is a KöR Whitening protocol for tetracycline stained teeth, and it does work! Many patients with tetracycline stained teeth have been told than dental veneers are the only option to improve the shade of the teeth. These patients are pleased that they decided to use KöR as an alternative cosmetic dental treatment option. Professional teeth whitening is a safe and easy way to get quick results without altering the surface or shape of your teeth.
What about Laser Teeth Whitening and Blue Lights I Used in My Past Whitening?
You might have experienced a bright, blue light held over your teeth during a past Zoom! Whitening, or saw a snap of your friend on social media whitening their teeth with a blue light. Maybe you overheard someone in Chelsea, raving about laser teeth whitening. While the blue light looks impressive and fancy, Dr. Bracy can confidently inform you no lights and lasers are needed, and these are mostly marketing gimmicks and dental myths.
Many “laser” teeth whitening sessions do not even use a laser at all, but a weak blue light. Teeth whitening product manufacturers continue to promote these lights because they look “cool” and provide another reason that justifies the price of the whitening system. Many dentists continue to use such lights because they either do not know better or because patients demand them. Most research studies (not subsided or done by teeth whitening companies) do not support the use of whitening lights.
The light may increase the speed of whitening reaction, but does not help to achieve better whitening results, and they may cause extra sensitivity and damage to the tooth or surrounding gum tissue. The American Dental Association (ADA) Statement on the Safety and Efficacy of Tooth Whitening Products also clearly informs the public that research does not show any additional benefits of a light-activated whitening system. Dr. Bracy’s mission is to provide you with the most honest, straightforward dental advice; he does not use or endorse light-activated teeth systems because it is not supported by research.
