Treatments to Whiten your Smile

We all want a bright smile that we can be proud of, however, it is not always easy when it means we have to compromise some of the things we love, such as wine and coffee. However, today we have various teeth whitening procedures that have proven to be effective and that we are proud to offer you as our valued patient. Please review some of those teeth whitening procedures below and contact us to schedule an appointment with our dentist to discuss in detail which procedure is ideal for you. Let us help you on your journey to a better smile with teeth whitening!

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 Green Street Dental Care, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 317-852-5668 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 an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see results. 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 fit over your teeth and whiten them through a special gel found inside of the trays.

These trays 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. They can also be used several times to achieve the desired results. Our dentist can further advise how many times they should be used in your particular case.

Custom whitening trays are clear and usually made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjusts when inserted. A hydrogen peroxide-infused gel is inserted in each tray, which consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth.

After they have been used and are removed, they need to be cleaned with a cotton swab or a cloth and rinsed. This makes them ready to use again. It is not recommended to use them for at least another day, after each application. Our dentist would be happy to further go into detail about the process during your teeth whitening consultation.

Zoom! In-Office 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.
