Popular Teeth Whitening Treatments

Sometimes, no matter how much care one can give to the dental hygiene, teeth can still have a discolor appearance. Many people opt to do teeth whitening procedures since if teeth don’t look as white as they can be, they will portray a sense of an unhealthy mouth. Some of the reasons why teeth might discolor have to do with the drinks and foods we consume. Daily eating or drinking coffee, wine, soda, tobacco, and such are the most prominent contributors to teeth stain. Teeth whitening is getting more accessible now since these treatments can be performed in a dental office as they can be implemented in your own home.  Therefore, it is essential to search what treatment will work best for you before committing to any.

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 Morton Family Dental Care, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 317-738-9884 to schedule a consultation.

Zoom! In-Office Whitening

Zoom! In-Office Whitening 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 activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening. 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.
