Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening comes in many forms, and individuals who would like to have a white, glistening and spotless set of teeth have several options to choose from. Some of those options are for regular teeth whitening which takes a bit of time to show clear results, and some are more drastic, which can produce results in a single short session of whitening while being safe for your teeth’s outer structure.

Take a closer look at the various whitening solutions we offer at Sugarloaf Family Dental in Lawrenceville, Georgia, below.

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 Sugarloaf Family Dental, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 470-223-3532 to schedule a consultation.

Take-Home Trays

Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform in the comfort of your home. This is a convenient 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. These trays are custom-made to go over your teeth and whiten gradually over time.

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. 

Zoom!

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 accelerate the bleaching process – to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. 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.

There are many teeth whitening methods, each containing a similar yet different process and outcome. Treatments will affect each individual differently, which is why we will recommend a proper consultation with our dentist prior to choosing the right option for you. Additionally, everyone’s current state of oral health is different, so certain treatments may not work for you. If you are looking to achieve a brighter smile, visit Sugarloaf Family Dental in Lawrenceville, Georgia, for effective and efficient teeth whitening services.
