Teeth Whitening in Marietta
Stained and discolored teeth can get in the way of your smile. Fortunately, Elite Dentistry offer professional teeth whitening, so you can get your smile back, as well as your self-confidence. For your convenience, we offer an in-office whitening system that will whiten your smile in practically no time. With Opalescence Boost®, you can be certain that your smile will be noticeably whiter and brighter.
What Stains my Teeth?
There are many reasons why teeth lose whiteness over the years. Take the foods and beverages you enjoy every day, for example. That cup coffee may be the jump-start you need everyday, but the chemicals that give coffee its dark color can become trapped in the cracks and grooves of your teeth. Tea, cola, chocolate, blueberries and carrots and other deeply colored foods do the same. Other causes of stains and discoloration include smoking and chewing tobacco, some medications, tooth injury and genetics.
Opalescence Boost®to the Rescue
Dr. Mercke and her team at Elite Dentistry have discovered that patients are greatly satisfied and pleased with the results of teeth whitening with Opalescence Boost. This in-office whitening system leaves teeth several shades whiter after just one treatment.
While you relax in the dentist’s chair, our hygienist will apply the Boost gel, which contains a 40 percent power-bleaching product, as well as potassium nitrate and fluoride to reduce tooth sensitivity and maintain your teeth’s healthy enamel layer. Unlike some other whitening systems, Opalescence Boost is chemically activated, so there’s no need to sit under a special light. The activated gel penetrates your tooth enamel as well as dentin to bleach away stains while leaving the structure of your tooth unchanged.
Maintaining Your White Smile
Once you’ve had your teeth whitened with Opalescence Boost, of course you’ll want to maintain that whiteness for as long as possible. In addition to brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing at least once a day, our dentists recommend touch-ups with Opalescence take-home whitening gel. Simply fill your custom-fitted trays with gel and wear them for 30 minutes or even overnight.
