One of the most desirable attributes of an appealing smile is a set of healthy, white teeth. However, staining due to tobacco use, drinking certain types of beverages (including tea, wine, and coffee), or the natural process of aging may make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Fortunately, our cosmetic dentists can dramatically enhance the aesthetics of your smile quickly and effectively with our teeth whitening options. At our practices we offer Opalescence® Boost tooth whitening and Spa Dent Naturals. In as little as 20 minutes to one hour for the in-office procedures, we can whiten your teeth by several shades, and our supplementary take-home kits can provide more comprehensive results or offer a second option for individuals who prefer to whiten from the comfort of home. During your initial consultation, we will develop a customized treatment plan that can best achieve your cosmetic goals with beautiful results.
If you have additional questions about teeth whitening or other cosmetic dentistry treatments, or if you would like to schedule a consultation with one of our dental professionals, please contact us today.
Opalescence® Boost Tooth Whitening System
Whiter, brighter teeth that are healthier too? Opalescence® Boost can lighten teeth dramatically in just one hour with a state-of-the-art in-office procedure. Using an advanced, chemically-activated whitening gel, teeth can be enhanced without the need for bright, hot lights. When you arrive for your consultation, the ideal shade will be selected based on your expressed goals and dental characteristics. Then, one of our skilled hygienists will apply the Opalescence® Boost treatment using a special soft brush, and forty minutes to one hour later you will see the results of the procedure. Opalescence® Boost is our preferred approach as it can achieve powerful whitening without damaging the enamel of your teeth. The gel is made up of potassium nitrate and fluoride, which are designed to strengthen teeth, reduce cavities, and minimize sensitivity. Opalescence® Boost can help break down even tough, dark stains that many other techniques cannot, including those caused by tetracycline. It’s important to note, this method only works on natural teeth, so if you have filled cavities or dental crowns, our dentists can provide recommendations for how to obtain the bright smile you want.
To help maintain the results of your treatment, we offer the “Whitening for Life” program. Occasional “touch-ups” can help extend the length of your outcome further. Talk to us about your goals and we will help you find the ideal solution for a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts for life.
Spa Dent Naturals Procedure
In addition to Opalescence®, we offer Spa Dent Naturals, an innovative teeth whitening treatment that is gluten-free, BPA-free, fluoride-free, and gentle on sensitive teeth. This advanced whitening system can be completed in the office, at home, or a combination of both. The in-office Spa Dent Naturals procedure takes between 60-90 minutes to complete, depending on your unique treatment plan and needs. This Power Whitening Session can help you achieve your brightest smile in an hour with little to no sensitivity issues.
During the in-practice procedure, you will be seated comfortably in one of our office chairs and provided with some entertainment options, such as music or a movie. A barrier dental dam, made from a gel substance that molds to the unique shape of your oral structures, will be applied to your gums to help minimize discomfort. The whitening gel then will be applied to your teeth, and a special red and blue light will be used to activate the bleaching process. Once complete, we can send you home with an aftercare kit that should help keep your smile radiant for months to come.
Whitening for Life Program
Once you have had your teeth whitened and you would like to maintain them. We offer a “Whitening for Life” program for those who are diligent with maintaining their oral health and white smile. For a small one time fee of $100 we will make custom upper and lower molds for you and you will receive a syringe of whitening gel at two dental hygiene appointments in a year to help keep your teeth looking their whitest for life!
