Effective Teeth Whitening Methods

Today, people are more interested in teeth whitening than ever before. Daily consumption of coffee, wine, soda, tobacco and such are the most prominent contributors to tooth stains. Teeth whitening is now accessible since these treatments can be performed in a dental office or even in your own home. It is important to search what treatment will work best for you before committing to any.  

The provided information below are about the different types of methods available to whiten your teeth. These treatments have shown to have effective and provide enduring results.

Opalescence Boost

Opalescence Boost is a chemically activated power whitening gel that provides brighter, whiter teeth after just 40 minutes in the dental chair. The powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide gel is chemically activated, so it doesn’t require a hot, uncomfortable light to work. 

Opalescence Boost consists of two syringes: The first contains 38 percent hydrogen peroxide, the active tooth whitening ingredient. The second syringe contains fluoride and potassium nitrate (PF), which helps strengthen tooth enamel, reduce sensitivity and protect against cavities. When mixed, the gel produces a distinct red color to help ensure correct placement and full removal of the product. 

Safe and effective, Opalescence Boost usually takes only one dental visit to complete. While one visit is all you need to achieve a brighter smile, difficult stains or extreme discoloration may require additional treatments.

At Farabee Family Dental Care, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 765-447-7052 to schedule a consultation.

Take-Home Whitening Trays

Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform at the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments, and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.

These trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.

Always consult with our dentist before deciding on any of teeth whitening procedures mentioned above.
