Teeth Whitening – Our office uses three products to whiten teeth (Opalescence® GO, Opalescence® Boost and Opalescence® PF) from Ultradent™.
The GO product is a prefabricated tray with either 10% or 15% hydrogen peroxide. Its ease of use makes it appealing. Wear time is about 30 minutes per tray.
The Boost is an in-office treatment that utilizes 40% hydrogen peroxide. It “boosts” a smile to achieve a fast result. Treatment time is approximately one hour.
Lastly, the PF is a bleach solution that is used in trays that we make to custom fit the patient. Utilizing carbamide peroxide, the strengths come in 10%, 15%, 20%, 35% and 45%. Wear time is generally from 30 minutes to 2 hours a day, depending on strength.
These trays can be reused to touch up a smile with bleach refills. See the Ultradent website to view products and specific information: https://www.ultradent.com/products/categories/whitening.
Teeth Straightening Trays – Patients with mild to moderate crowding can utilize clear teeth straightening trays to achieve their desired smiles. Successive trays are often used to reposition crowded teeth or teeth that are out of place.
Porcelain Veneers – Bonded to the facial surface of a tooth, a veneer serves to improve the cosmetic appearance on a front tooth that is otherwise sound.
