Teeth Whitening Treatments We Offer

During the last years, Teeth whitening procedures have become an increasingly popular solution for a brighter smile, as daily consumption of coffee, wine, and other products that damaged teeth has risen. Moreover, finding procedures that work effectively to bring back a beautiful white smile has become a priority for many people.

In this article, we will be looking at different teeth whitening procedures, which have proven to be highly effective, both for maintaining teeth health and delivering that gorgeous white smile that you want.

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 Laurel Lakes Cosmetic Dentistry, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 301-498-6511 to schedule a consultation.

Take-Home Trays

What makes over the counter teeth whitening kits so popular is that they can be done at home. These trays are available for both sensitive and non-sensitive teeth. Each teeth whitening kit consists of impression trays and teeth whitening gels. These "take-home trays" are engineered for anyone to use, and come with instructions on how to perform the procedure yourself.  However, it is still important to consult our dentist so that the correct teeth whitening take-home kit is given to you. 

Custom whitening trays are trays that are clear and are usually made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjusts when inserted. A special gel is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth. They are also great for our patients who are on the go and need a more flexible way to do a teeth whitening treatment, as well as for those who have never done one and would like to start by using this method, Our dentist will go through the steps in-office and over what to do to maximize your treatment.

Important: While the teeth whitening procedures mentioned in this article certainly work and have been proven to be effective, they are meant to accompany a good oral hygiene regime. It is very important to always maintain proper oral hygiene. This not only helps you get naturally whiter teeth over time, but it also maintains the results of your teeth whitening treatment and prevents stains from developing or darkening.
