Different Treatments for Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening has become one of the most popular ways to combat the many causes of discoloration and stains.  Smiles fade over time and whether it is due to age, the consumption of wine and coffee, or ineffective oral hygiene, our whitening treatments can help you achieve and maintain a healthy, radiant smile.  We have a variety of whitening treatments; some need to be performed in the office by dental professionals while other treatments are available in kits designed to be taken home and used at your convenience.

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 Smiles on Beach Boulevard, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 904-551-9188 to schedule a consultation.

Take home tray

If you are unhappy with the color of your teeth but don’t have the time for in-office treatments, our take-home whitening kits are an excellent and effective alternative.  Take-home whitening trays can improve the quality of your smile anytime, anywhere. These safe, durable trays are custom-molded to fit your teeth.  A proper fit ensures the most effective treatment with maximum comfort. Simply wear these trays a few hours each day, and progressively your teeth with brighten. Once your teeth are your desired level of whiteness, just wear your trays every now and then to maintain your new smile.

While teeth whitening procedures have proven to be effective, they are meant to accompany a good oral hygiene regimen. Practicing good oral hygiene can help combat stains and discoloration naturally, and it also helps maintain the results of your teeth whitening treatment.
