Teeth Whitening Treatments That Work
Teeth whitening procedures have become increasingly popular over the last few years. As daily consumption of coffee, wine and other teeth-staining products have risen, so has the need to find procedures that work effectively to bring back a beautiful, white smile.
Listed below are the different types of teeth whitening procedures that we offer, all of which have proven to be highly-effective in maintaining dental health and delivering the gorgeous smile you're looking for.
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 A Winning Smile, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 561-965-7000 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. You must follow the instructions that our dentist gives you so you can 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 they whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.
These custom made trays can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines our dentist gives you. The time period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.
How Take-Home Whitening Trays Work
Custom whitening trays are clear trays clear that are usually made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjust when inserted. A small dollop of gel is inserted in each tray to give them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth.
After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or a cloth and rinsed so they can be used again. You should not use them for at least a day after each application.
These whitening trays can be used several times to achieve the desired results. Our dentist can further advise you on how many times you should use them.
