Professional Teeth Whitening
While other teeth whitening systems take days or weeks to complete, our new power whitening system allows our patients to get whiter teeth in just one dental visit!
By using a higher level of the active ingredient hydrogen peroxide, present in all teeth whitening products, combined with laser dentistry, we can eliminate stains set deep inside your teeth. This process of using the laser for teeth whitening is called power teeth whitening and, while the laser is what makes the reaction so effective, most processes share the same active ingredient, hydrogen peroxide.
During this process, hydrogen peroxide turns into oxygen, which penetrates tooth enamel to break down stains. This teeth whitening technique, also called in-office tooth whitening, provides the best results possible in as little as one office visit.
Power Teeth Whitening
The power teeth whitening process is much more effective and more immediate than take-home teeth whitening. Over-the-counter whitening products only contain 10 to 16 percent hydrogen peroxide and toothpastes with hydrogen peroxide contain as little as one percent. Power teeth whitening uses 30 to 35 percent hydrogen peroxide for the best of all whitening results.
The process involves a rubber dam placed over your gums which protects them from damage. The power bleaching solution is applied and the laser is used to activate the hydrogen peroxide. Instead of days or weeks, you will walk out of the office with whiter teeth in about an hour.
Take Home Whitening
The take-home whitening process involves custom trays made from an impression of your teeth and the active ingredient gel which you apply at home. The process is gradual, but results will be noticed within days and the longer you continue the application the whiter your teeth will become.
