Teeth Whitening Treatments

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 valuable 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.

Opalescence™

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 ProDental, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 573-443-1525 to schedule a consultation.

Take Home Trays

Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure you can complete in the comfort of your own home. It's a simple and effective way to achieve a whiter smile, provided you follow the instructions from our dentist. The custom take-home whitening trays fit comfortably over your teeth and are worn for a brief period of time each day. Over the course of about two weeks, you'll have a more dazzling smile. 

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.
