Teeth Whitening Treatments
Most people’s diet involved the daily consumption of foods and drinks that stain their teeth. Some of the foods and drinks are coffee, sodas, wine, tea and even fruits such as strawberry and blackberries. Acids in foods and beverages break down your teeth's enamel, making it easier for the enamel to be stained. Therefore, no matter how much you take care of your teeth, you can still have discolored teeth. With the use of social media, appearance has become more important than ever because it can be the starting point for building new relationships, and it can reveal a lot about an individual's hygiene. Whiten teeth plays a vital role in people’s image, so that might be a reason why teeth whitening treatments have become so popular. Teeth whitening is getting more accessible now as these treatments can be performed in a dental office as they can be implemented in your own home
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 Foreside Family Dental, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 207-439-3390 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.
ZOOM! In-Office Tooth Whitening
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 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.Read more about ZOOM!
