A ‘White Wedding’ Should Include Your Teeth

Imagine you are getting married in six months. You probably already picked out your dress or your tuxedo. You know when and how you will get your hair cut and styled before the ceremony.

You just need one more thing for a picture perfect wedding day — white teeth.

We certainly hope your smiles will come easy and often on what should be the best day of your life. We also want you to be proud to share the photos from that day for years and decades to come.

This is just one of the reasons we offer professional teeth whitening for our patients at Beaumont Family Dentistry. If you live in Richmond, Lexington, or anywhere else in central Kentucky, you are within driving distance of one of our three locations.

Reasons To ‘Lighten Up’

Tooth stains don’t happen overnight. They usually set in so gradually that we don’t really notice. Then one day, we look in the mirror and realize that the shiny, pearly white teeth you remember have become yellow and dull.

This could happen for any number of reasons. Maybe you have been a tobacco user for a long time. Nicotine and tar are not good for your teeth, and it shows.

Of course, tobacco is hardly the only thing that causes staining. Soft drinks, coffee, tea, wine, pasta sauce, soy sauce, and even some fruits can cause your teeth to become stained.

Poor oral hygiene may be another factor contributing to your stained teeth, too. If you aren’t brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing daily, you also might be exposing your teeth to the bacteria and plaque that cause tooth decay (and other problems).

Retail Therapy?

Going shopping for a new pair of shoes may make help you feel better, but don’t expect the same thing from commercial whitening products.

You can find plenty of them. Anymore, it seems toothpaste, strips, gels, and mouthrinses all claim that they will whiten your teeth.

WebMD looked at that very issue. They found that whitening toothpastes can make your teeth about … one shade whiter.

In contrast, they found that professional whitening systems (like the kinds we use at Beaumont Family Dentistry) can make your teeth up to eight shades whiter.

KöR Whitening

KöR is one of the fastest and most effective professional teeth whitening systems available today, and we offer it in our Lexington offices. KöR uses active ingredients similar to many other whitening products, so what makes it different?

One key difference is KöR’s production process. KöR products are refrigerated from they time they are packaged until they are delivered to our offices.

KöR researchers learned that whitening products become less effective when they are stored at room temperature. By keeping the products cool, KöR maintains more of its ability to remove stains.

KöR also designed its products to reduce the teeth sensitivity that can occur as a result of teeth whitening. This makes it more comfortable than some other whitening products as well.

And with KöR, you receive custom whitening trays. These help to keep out saliva, which can reduce effectiveness of your treatment.

We offer a combination of in-office and take-home KöR whitening products. This gives you the best possible results in a short amount of time.

Your White Wedding Day

When people talk about a “white wedding,” they are usually talking about the dress. Even so, we are confident that you will want your smile to look as good, if not better, than what you are wearing.

After all, your dress or your tuxedo is going to look great for a day, but your smile is something you will be wearing for the rest of your life.

If you are going to spend your hard-earned money on a whitening product, you should be confident that it’s going to give you results that you can see. That’s why we offer KöR whitening at each of our Beaumont Family Dentistry offices.
