Teeth Whitening Procedures our Dentist Offers
Teeth Whitening comes in many forms, and individuals who would like to have a white, glistening and spotless set of teeth have several options to choose from. Some of those options are for regular teeth whitening which takes a bit of time to show clear results, and some are more drastic, which can produce results in a single short session of whitening while being safe for your teeth’s outer structure.
In this article, we will be taking a look at distinct teeth whitening procedures, which have proven highly effective and efficient, both in terms of maintaining teeth health and delivering that gorgeous white smile that you want. Teeth whitening is a great option to produce a brighter smile. Below you will find a list of the various teeth whitening procedures that we offer.
KöR Teeth Whitening
Individuals who prefer to avoid laser treatments as a result of sensitivity can ask our dentist about the KöR teeth whitening procedure. This treatment makes use of the proprietary KöR Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel™ Hydremide Peroxide formulation and delivery system. The proprietary formulation delivers results without the use of any lasers.
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 Associated Family Dental Care, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 859-276-4345 to schedule a consultation.
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.
These 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 period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.
