About Teeth Whitening
Even a healthy smile can be discolored from the consumption of some of certain foods and beverages. At Beyond Smiles Dental Care in Fort Worth, TX we understand that having a bright, beautiful smile can have a positive impact, so board-certified dentist, Dr. Edwina Evangelista performs professional teeth whitening. Beyond Smiles Dental Care offers two options for teeth whitening: at-home teeth whitening kits and in-office treatments. Both options are equally effective, differing only in price and treatment time. Dr. E customizes all teeth whitening treatment to the specific needs of each patient so they can see a more brilliant smile.
There are many attractive-looking whitening kits that can be bought over-the-counter at most stores. However, Dr. Evangelista wants her patients to understand her concerns about these over-the-counter whitening options. Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits use hydrogen peroxide gel that does not protect the teeth from sensitivity and enamel deterioration. Though over the counter whitening treatments may appear to be cheaper, they could result in costly repairs in the long run. Professional teeth whitening at Beyond Smiles Dental Care can help patients safely achieve a whiter smile.
For quick, in-office teeth whitening, Beyond Smiles Dental Care uses Opalescene Boost teeth whitening system. This teeth whitening treatment uses a 40% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to brighten the teeth in a total of 40 minutes, which is broken up into two 20-minute sessions. Boost Whitening service is chemically activated, so it does not require the use of a light for treatments. In addition, the gel is not prepared until immediately before a session for optimum effectiveness. The gel solution contains potassium nitrate and fluoride, which serve to protect the teeth from sensitivity and to strengthen the enamel of the teeth.
At-Home Whitening Kits
For those who would prefer to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home, Dr. E offers customized at-home teeth whitening kits. These whitening kits are comprised of custom dental trays which will hold a professional grade whitening gel snugly against the teeth for high quality results. Beyond Smiles Dental Care will fit the patient during their visit for the dental trays as well as instruct them on how to use and care for them when they are complete.
