Teeth Whitening Treatments That Work

Teeth whitening treatments have become increasingly popular during recent years. People choose to whiten their teeth for various reasons including important events, job interviews, self-confidence boosts or the most obvious, tooth discoloration. Whatever the reason might be, our dentist will present you with several treatment options to restore your tooth color.

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 Sunset Hills Family Dental, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 618-692-9980 to schedule a consultation.

Take-Home Whitening 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.

In Sunset Hills Family Dental you can make sure that the teeth whitening procedure you are looking for is not only provided but exectuted perfectly. We are located in 2 Club Centre Ct, Edwardsville, Illinois,62025. Don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment for a brighter smile today! 618-692-9980.
