KöR WhiteningKöR Whitening’s unique, dual-activated, Tri-Barrel™ hydremide® peroxide technology is said to separate the whitening chemistry into three separate chambers instead of the usual two chambers (dual-barrel). Historically, the chemistry of in-office whitening gels has been a series of compromises. Having only a dual barrel to separate the chemistry has limited the number of ingredients that can be used. The simple fact is there are many chemicals that cannot be combined until ready for use. By introducing the first Tri-Barrel™ delivery system in the whitening industry, KöR Whitening reportedly has been able to expand the formulation with critical additional ingredients. The more complex hydremide peroxide formulation was designed to enable KöR to overcome previous compromises, achieve more ideal properties and provide the most effective in-office whitening possible.

Pola Office+
SDI created the Pola Whitening Collection in Australia more than 15 years ago. The line reportedly continues to grow in popularity due to its performance, packaging options and marketing aids to assist offices in establishing and growing their whitening business. Pola’s in-office whitening product is Pola Office+. Aside from the product’s efficacy, some things that make Pola Office+ unique are said to be its reduced chairtime, ease of use and desensitizers. With Pola Office+ (37.5-percent hydrogen peroxide) you reportedly can reduce chairtime with three to four eight-minute applications. The Pola Office+ automix syringe is designed to provide ease of use and a fresh mix with each application. This reportedly also allows clinicians to recap and use leftover material at a later time. Lastly, Pola Office+ has built-in desensitizers designed to offset sensitivity the patient may have.

“Sinsational Smile is a great whitening product to offer my patients. It offers a nice, subtle whitening effect with virtually no sensitivity in about 20 minutes-even at the new higher concentration. My patients then have the option to continue whitening at home with the accessory pen, if they choose to. But, most of all, they love the fact that they aren’t sore when they leave. This is a great addition to our practice.”-Dr. Paul S. Crespo, DDS

“I’d tried take-home, custom trays, and I loved them, but I wasn’t great about remembering to wear them consistently. So when I visited my dentist, he suggested I try Opalescence® Boost-their in-office whitening treatment. Upon finishing the pain-free, 40-minute procedure and rinsing off my teeth, the results were like night and day! I left the office 100 percent more confident. I couldn’t stop smiling! Now, two years after receiving my Opalescence® Boost treatment, I still get regular compliments on how white my teeth are!”-Chana Wald
