Teeth Whitening Treatments We Offer

We would all love a bright and sparkling smile. One way you can achieve your best smile is with a teeth whitening treatment. Our excellent dentist at Coral Ridge Dental Arts in Fort Lauderdale Florida is available for you to answer all your concerns related to teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening involves a set of procedures, with each being appropriate to address a different need. We provide a range of teeth whitening procedures. Details are outlined below:

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 Coral Ridge Dental Arts, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 954-771-3331 to schedule a consultation.

Take Home Trays

Custom whitening trays are clear and are used in conjunction with a small dollop of gel, that is inserted in each tray which gives them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth. 

After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or a cloth and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again, although It is not recommended to use them for at least another day after each application.

These whitening trays can be used several times to achieve the desired results. Our dentist can further advice on whether this treatment is right for you.

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.
