Continuously refrigerated from manufacture to delivery at your office.
Heat is the enemy of whitening gel potency…and gel potency is a big key to ensuring totally satisfied whitening patients.
All peroxide based whitening gels are unstable chemicals – they’re supposed to be. This is why they’re
able to break down quickly in the mouth, releasing bleaching factor byproducts. The downside of this chemical instability is that all whitening gels start degenerating immediately after manufacture if not kept under constant refrigeration.
The higher the temperature, the greater the degradation process. Warm, or even hot temperatures, often encountered during warehouse storage at chemical manufacturers and whitening product companies, is problematic. The potentially higher temperatures encountered during truck shipment of gels from suppliers to your office creates even more heat degradation.
Is it any wonder that you experience such a wide range of effectiveness with typical whitening systems?
As NON-refrigerated whitening products break down and degrade during storage and shipping, hydrogen ions are produced. Those hydrogen ions are acid (pH = potential of Hydrogen). Whitening gels therefore become more and more acidic as they break down, resulting in an ever increasing possibility of sensitivity and pain.
Constant refrigeration virtually stops breakdown of whitening gels.
More importantly, refrigeration protects whitening gels against the potency-robbing damage of heat during storage and shipping. Refrigeration also eliminates the need for chemical stabilizers, which can increase osmolarity of gels by as much as 11 times. That increased osmotic “pull” on dentinal tubular fluid further increases sensitivity.
KöR Whitening is the first company to constantly refrigerate a full line of teeth whitening products from the moment of manufacture, until you receive them cold-packed at your dental practice.
The result? With KöR Whitening systems you get exceptionally effective gels with lower sensitivity and less risk of pain for your patients.
