Popular Teeth Whitening Treatments
Sometimes, no matter how much care one can give to the dental hygiene, teeth can still have a discolor appearance. Many people opt to do teeth whitening procedures since if teeth don’t look as white as they can be, they will portray a sense of an unhealthy mouth. Some of the reasons why teeth might discolor have to do with the drinks and foods we consume. Daily eating or drinking coffee, wine, soda, tobacco, and such are the most prominent contributors to teeth stain. Teeth whitening is getting more accessible now since these treatments can be performed in a dental office as they can be implemented in your own home. Therefore, it is essential to search what treatment will work best for you before committing to any.

Brite Smile In-Office Whitening
The Brite Smile In-Office Whitening system uses a hydrogen peroxide mixture and the power of “cool blue” LED light to whiten your teeth up to eight shades lighter. First, the gum line is protected with an application of vitamin E. Then, the whitening gel is applied to the surface of the teeth. The gel is then exposed to the LED light, accelerating the whitening process. This procedure is safe and won’t damage to your teeth. Also, if you are worried about teeth sensitivity, we can adjust the product’s concentration.

Laser Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening has become one of the first requests that dental patients have when visiting their dentist.
Laser teeth whitening is administered in a dental office exclusively and is the most expensive method for whitening. Bleach is applied to each tooth, and heat generated by a laser enhances its effectiveness while ultimately speeding up the process. This procedure uses a strong bleaching gel that the laser activates and enhances for quick, dramatic results. The bleach used is a hydrogen peroxide gel that ranges from 25 to 40 percent in concentration levels. With these high concentrations, special precautions are taken to reduce tooth sensitivity, as well as protect the lips, gums and other oral tissues from being damaged.
Laser teeth whitenng takes about an hour in the dental office. Oftentimes, several treatments are needed to achieve the desired results and bleaching trays for home use may be needed as well to improve or maintain those results.
Laser teeth whitening isn't for everyone and is just one option to whiten your teeth. To find out more about teeth whitening, schedule a consultation at Markland Family Dental by calling us at 765-868-7113.

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 Markland Family Dental, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 765-868-7113 to schedule a consultation.
