Whitening (or bleaching) is an extremely popular cosmetic procedure. In comparison to all the cosmetic dental procedures available to enhance one’s smile, teeth teeth whitening is one of the least invasive. It is simple and effective in helping our patients achieve the bright white smile they desire.

There are 2 bleaching options in our office with Kor Deep Bleaching™ being one of the most effective. KOR is the latest in whitening advancement. It is an in-office whitening treatment combined with home bleaching that gives the most consistent whitening results that last longer. While each patient is different, one’s teeth will often whiten up to 16 shades or more.

What makes the KOR Whitening System different?

Bleaching trays are thin, custom-made and form-fitting as opposed to the over-the-counter bulky trays at the drug store. This new advancement in whitening addresses many of the problems that other systems could not. The KOR seal trays are formulated to keep out saliva which destroys peroxide an essential ingredient in virtually all whitening systems. This medium gives you a full uncontaminated treatment every time. This solution is just one of the things that make the KOR system different.

Why does this treatment work so well?

Kor Deep Bleaching™ works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen. The results are long lasting and maintenance is typically bi-annually after the initial treatment sessions. The oxygen from the gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving and removing stain molecules. (KOR Whitening: Patient faqs) The treatment takes 4 weeks of at home bleaching to accompany the 2 chairside treatment sessions in our office to achieve the optimal results.

Does this work if I have sensitive teeth?

The answer is Yes! KOR uses a desensitizing agent to prevent bleaching sensitivity. This agent also works for those who do not have sensitive teeth but do experience bleaching discomfort. Also unlike over the counter bleaching products, KOR Deep Bleaching™ method has little to no cases of sensitivity experienced by patients.

Now, I know what you are thinking… this treatment sounds too good to be true. What are the drawbacks? Well, there are only two that I found. This treatment does not work on crowns, veneers, or fillings. If you have these on your front teeth, you may want to have them replaced after treatment as they would not match in shade. Lastly, if you want the results to be more permanent, regular maintenance is required every six months or at the very least, annually. These two drawbacks are small prices to pay for a beautiful white smile, and with KOR, the things that used to stain your teeth will no longer dampen your smile.

I have been going to this practice for several years now. I seemingly never have to wait when I arrive at the office and they are all very professional. Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching have been terrific. In addition to doing great dental work, each has a great rapport with their patients. All of their assistants have been top notch as well.

I recently met with Dr. Ching to have some dental work done, and had an exceptional experience at this office! I usually hate going to the dentist, but this experience was different–this office is hands-down, THE nicest dental facilitiy I have ever seen.

- Shaun F.

This dental office is something I haven’t seen before. I had many past dental experiences at other dental offices (unfortunately not good) and finally I found Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Hartlieb had helped me restore my teeth to a beautiful smile.

- Natasa R.

I am a loyal patient for over (yikes!) 20 years because I appreciate the time, skill and patience of the entire team. As proof of my gratitude, I live in the city and reverse commute every six months for my appointment.

- Dennis H.

Dr. Hartlieb is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. He has transformed my smile into something of beauty. In fact, many people comment on how beautiful my teeth are who do not even know that I have had major dental work performed. I used to never want to smile that large before, but now I smile as big as possible when photographed.

- Fran L.

I always have a great experience when I go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. The staff is amazing and Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The facility is incredible and I feel like I’m being treated with the best technology in the dental industry. Go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles for a consultation and I guarantee you will go back time and time again. It does not get any better in the Chicago area.

- Antonio S.

I had a great experience with Dr. Ching – very professional and thorough in his craft. I had been seeing my previous dentist for the past 15 years; however, I am ready to make the permanent switch to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Ching is great at explaining the procedures he was performing and made my visit comfortable.
