Current Teeth Whitening Treatments
Most people’s diet involve the daily consumption of foods and drinks that stain their teeth. Some of the foods and drinks are coffee, sodas, wine, tea and even fruits, such as strawberry and blackberries. Acids in foods and beverages break down your teeth's enamel, making it easier for the enamel to be stained. Therefore, no matter how much you take care of your teeth, you can still have discolored teeth. With the use of social media, appearance has become more important than ever because it can be the starting point for building new relationships, and it can reveal a lot about an individual's hygiene. Since white teeth play a vital role in people’s image, teeth whitening treatments have become increasingly popular.
Opalescence™ is a chemically activated power whitening gel that provides brighter, whiter teeth after just 40 minutes in the dental chair. The safe, powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide gel is chemically activated, doesn’t require a hot, uncomfortable light to work, and usually takes only one dental visit to achieve desired results.Read more about Opalescence™
Take Home Trays
Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform at the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to 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 whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.
Theses trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.
