Teeth Whitening Treatments
Teeth whitening procedures have become increasingly popular in recent years. As the daily consumption of coffee, wine and other stain-causing products has risen, so has the need for treatments that help create beautifully white smiles. At Bear Branch Family Dentistry in The Woodlands, Texas, we offer a variety of highly effective teeth whitening treatments. Take a closer look at these systems and how they can help you achieve your smile goals.
KöR Whitening System
The KöR whitening system consists of trays that are made from molds of your teeth, a whitening gel and a teeth desensitizer. It works by restoring your teeth’s youthful ability to absorb oxygen. The whitening gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving and removing the stain molecules. Once you have the tray molds of your teeth, your kit goes home with you for use at your convenience as directed by your dentist.
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 Bear Branch Family Dentistry, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 281-419-2327 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.
These trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.
