Teeth Whitening

Life happens. Whether through coffee, tobacco, disease, or just age, teeth don’t stay white forever. Whatever the reason, if you aren’t completely satisfied with your smile, consider a whitening treatment.

The Peroxide Solution

Most whitening systems are based on a peroxide formula. When the whitening gel or paste interacts with water, it breaks down into its component parts. One of those components is oxygen, which is what does most of the dirty work.

Oxygen really digs deep into the tooth. Once it reaches the stained molecules, it reacts with them. This breaks some of the chemical bonds holding those molecules together, thus effectively changing their chemical makeup, and making them much smaller. Those bits can then be rinsed away.

Whitening toothpastes and over-the-counter products work this way, as many systems do, but their effects can sometimes feel insignificant. That’s because over-the-counter whitening comes in a relatively diluted form. Lower peroxide content means that only through long-term diligent use can it really do its job.

If you have ever tried these systems and found them lacking, there’s good news! For whitening results that really pop, come in to Fairchance Dental Arts for a professional grade formula.

Professional In-Office Teeth Whitening

Opalescence Syringe
Our dental office uses Opalescence Boost™ patented whitening system. This fantastic product contains the stronger peroxide formula you need to get professional, long-lasting results. When safely applied to your teeth by a professional, you’ll see a noticeable and significant difference within the hour after application.

How the Boost teeth whitening process works:

  • Your mouth and gums will be covered so they won’t be affected by the whitening agent.
  • The Boost whitening gel will be applied to your teeth.
  • The teeth whitening gel is chemically activated, which means no LED teeth whitening lights are needed.
  • You leave our office with a smile that is up to 8 shades whiter!

It really is that simple to get a whiter smile that looks brand new here at Fairchance Dental Arts.

Take-Home Tooth Whitening

Opalescence Syringe
Sitting in a dental chair isn’t the right choice for everyone. For those whose schedules or needs won’t allow it, Fairchance also offers the take-home whitening system from Opalescence Go™.

This product contains a professionally prepared solution with a higher concentration of peroxide than the drugstore brands – an average of six shades whiter. It can be used at home when your needs and schedule allow.

You’ll be equipped with an upper and lower tray for your teeth as well as the Opalescence Go whitening gel. Opalescence Go whitening has been known to whiten teeth extremely quickly, so you can usually expect to see results within just 3 applications. Drs. Megan or Caleb Beam will discuss with you how long you should wear the formula and how often.
