Teeth Whitening Procedures
Teeth whitening treatments have become increasingly popular in recent years. There are many reasons for why people decide to whiten their teeth -- upcoming event, a job interview or tooth discoloration. Whatever your reason, our dentist will provide you with several treatment options, so please visit us to determine which one would be a great fit for you.
Laser Teeth Whitening
Laser teeth whitening is administered in a dental office exclusively, and is the most expensive method for whitening. All forms of teeth whitening work by releasing oxygen ions from a tooth whitening gel, which gently lift stains from the teeth. The laser simply lifts the stains faster. Another advantage of the laser is that (depending on the type of laser used) it can more easily be used to bleach one tooth at a time. This is helpful when one tooth is more discolored than the surrounding teeth.Read more about Laser Teeth Whitening
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 Baytowne Dental Center, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 217-355-5220 to schedule a consultation.

However, they are still harmless and provide excellent results but they must be performed at our dental office.
