Teeth Whitening is a procedure that restores the natural color of your teeth. There are many teeth whitening techniques offered at our dental office that we will review next. Our dentist at Market Square Dental Care in Claremore Oklahoma recommends various teeth whitening products based on the needs of our patients. It is important to note that teeth whitening has improved and now there are safer options for both sensitive and non-sensitive teeth that will not damage your enamel. We would love to help you achieve the smile you've been looking for, so if you want more information on the procedures or products mentioned below, don't hesitate to call us to schedule an appointment with our team.
Laser Teeth Whitening
Laser teeth whitening is administered in a dental office exclusively, and is the most expensive method for whitening. All forms of teeth whitening work by releasing oxygen ions from a tooth whitening gel, which gently lift stains from the teeth. The laser simply lifts the stains faster. Another advantage of the laser is that (depending on the type of laser used) it can more easily be used to bleach one tooth at a time. This is helpful when one tooth is more discolored than the surrounding teeth.Read more about Laser Teeth Whitening
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 Market Square Dental Care, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 918-342-0202 to schedule a consultation.
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.
Zoom is a bleaching process widely used to lighten discoloration of enamel and dentin. Tooth discoloration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine, or from smoking. The aging process also can stain and darken your teeth. The Zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp – to accelerate the bleaching process – to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.Read more about Zoom!
