Lafayette, LA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/30/2014 -- Dr. Ken LeBlanc recently incorporated the KöR Whitening System into the cosmetic services he offers his patients. Other whitening systems are able to rid teeth of stains caused by coffee, tea, or red wine, but none of them have been effective on tetracycline-stained teeth, which tend to be gray or bluish in color. “The fact that the KöR Whitening System can whiten tetracycline-stained teeth is great for my patients who were given tetracycline at a young age while their teeth were still developing,” states Dr. LeBlanc. The results of the system are permanent and safe for teeth and gums.
Tetracycline was invented to replace penicillin, but the developers of the antibiotic were not aware the drug would interfere with the coloring of the tooth enamel in developing teeth. Before KöR Whitening System came on the market, people were left with few options to whiten their stained teeth. Individuals learned to live with their stained teeth or opted for porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns, but only certain veneers would work because veneers are very thin and the stain would show through the veneer. Financially, whitening your teeth is a much less expensive option than veneers or crowns.
Dr. LeBlanc remarks, “It has been a challenge to find something that would whiten tetracycline-stained teeth. Patients that suffer from this condition have given up on the whitening systems that have been available up until recently. The KöR Whitening System has given them a reason to be excited. Finally, they will be able to have a bright white smile.”
Cosmetic dentist and bleaching expert Dr. Rod Kurthy developed the KöR Whitening System. Some teeth-whitening products cause teeth to become sensitive, but the KöR Whitening System has low to no sensitivity issues and is a comfortable, easy process. Dr. LeBlanc comments, “Since it is permanent there is no need to give up coffee, tea or red wine and it’s perfect for ages 14 to 90 years old.”
