Teeth aren’t naturally the bright white color that we like to see when a celebrity walks down the red carpet. In fact, the normal color of teeth is off-white or even a tad on the yellow side. Our everyday activities, such as drinking wine and eating berries, can make our smiles even darker. Fortunately, though, modern dentistry has allowed us to change the way our teeth look by blasting away stains for a smile that truly dazzles. In our practice, we offer two effective and safe whitening treatments:
Opalescence Boost is an in-office treatment that only takes about an hour from start to finish, making it perfect if you want to transform your smile as soon as possible. It uses a powerful 40 percent hydrogen peroxide bleaching solution that a dental professional applies to your teeth. Here is how the process works:
You can use our take-home whitening kits as a way to maintain the results of your in-office treatment, but you can also use them as a standalone way to brighten your teeth. We’ll help you put together a Opalescence kit that will have customized whitening trays and a bleaching solution in a concentration that is right for your circumstances. We’ll coach you on how to use your kit to get the dramatic results you want in a way that is safe for your teeth.
Using either of our available whitening avenues is a superior option to relying on OTC bleaching products, most of which only address stains on the surface of teeth. Opalescence breaks up stains that are beneath the enamel, leading to an amazing look that can last for years.
Your teeth whitening journey starts when you contact us and schedule a consultation in our office. We’ll have to make sure that your teeth are healthy enough for the treatment you want, and we’ll discuss any issues that might interfere with the efficacy of your brightening procedure (for example, if you have dental bonding on your teeth, it won’t respond to bleaching). We might also talk to you about other cosmetic dentistry options, such as veneers, that can do more than just change the color of your teeth.
