With time, our teeth tend to become discolored or stained. This is unavoidable and can be due to several reasons. Though, with the variety of teeth restoration choices available, an attractive smile is a possibility for all. Teeth whitening is a great option to produce a sparkling smile. Below you will find a list of the several teeth whitening processes that we offer at Cedar Creek Dental Care.
Kor Teeth Whitening
The Kor Teeth Whitening Treatment makes use of the proprietary KöR Dual-Activated, Tri-Barrel™ Hydremide Peroxide formulation and delivery system. This proprietary formulation is able to deliver great results and it’s preferred over laser treatment by many patients.
Laser Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening has become one of the first requests that dental patients have when visiting their dentist.
Laser teeth whitening is administered in a dental office exclusively and is the most expensive method for whitening. Bleach is applied to each tooth, and heat generated by a laser enhances its effectiveness while ultimately speeding up the process. This procedure uses a strong bleaching gel that the laser activates and enhances for quick, dramatic results. The bleach used is a hydrogen peroxide gel that ranges from 25 to 40 percent in concentration levels. With these high concentrations, special precautions are taken to reduce tooth sensitivity, as well as protect the lips, gums and other oral tissues from being damaged.
Laser teeth whitening takes about an hour in the dental office. Oftentimes, several treatments are needed to achieve the desired results and bleaching trays for home use may be needed as well to improve or maintain those results.
Laser teeth whitening isn't for everyone and is just one option to whiten your teeth. To find out more about teeth whitening, schedule a consultation at Cedar Creek Dental Care by calling us at 918-251-1521.
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 Cedar Creek Dental Care, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 918-251-1521 to schedule a consultation.
Take Home Trays
Take-home trays are great because they can be used in the comfort of your home. Our dentist can provide you with a kit with instructions, or you can purchase these over-the-counter at any local pharmacy. Results are not immediate with this method but can be seen after a single session.
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!
