With time, our teeth tend to become discolored or stained. This is unavoidable and can be due to several reasons. Though, with the variety of teeth restoration choices available, an attractive smile is a possibility for all. Teeth whitening is a great option to produce a sparkling smile. Below you will find a list of the several teeth whitening processes that we offer at Cambridge Dental Care.
Laser Teeth Whitening
Laser treatments are some of the more effective teeth whitening procedures. The bleaching gel used is activated and enhanced by the use of a laser for quick, dramatic results. In accordance with the ADA laws, our dentist utilizes hydrogen peroxide as a bleaching agent, which ranges from 25% to 40% when it comes to levels of concentration. The heat generated from the laser speeds up the process and activates the action of the bleaching gel resulting in white, sparkling teeth.
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 Cambridge Dental Care, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 618-632-1603 to schedule a consultation.
Take Home Trays
Take-home trays are great because they can be used in the comfort of your home. Our dentist can provide you with a kit with instructions, or you can purchase these over-the-counter at any local pharmacy. Results are not immediate with this method but can be seen after a single session.
Sometimes all it takes for a big enhancement in our appearance is a small step. We offer you a suitable way to enhance your smile and boost your confidence with expert teeth whitening.
