Teeth Whitening Treatments for a Brighter Smile

Teeth whitening procedures have become increasingly popular during the last few years. As daily consumption of coffee, wine and other products that stain teeth have risen, so has the demand for teeth whitening. In this article, we will look at the distinct teeth whitening procedures that have proven to be highly effective. At Econ River Family Dental, our dentist and team strive to provide you with your dream smile and help maintain excellent oral health. Below, you will find the teeth whitening treatments our Orlando, Florida, office offers.

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 Econ River Family Dental, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 407-601-0638 to schedule a consultation.

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 different process yet have similar outcomes. 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.
