How do I whiten my teeth?
We here at Atlanta Dental Spa can whiten your teeth in 3 different ways.
Boost in-office whitening
The first, and probably the most commonly called about option, is our in-office whitening. We use a system called Boost. With Boost, you’re here for about 2 hours from start to finish. We isolate the teeth from the gums, place a 40% carbamide peroxide gel on the teeth, it sits for about 20 minutes each round – we do 2 rounds of that. Typically, it takes anywhere from 2-3 sessions to get your brightest and whitest result.
Custom take-home trays
Our next option, which is my personal favorite, is our custom take-home trays. They’re exactly what they’re called – custom – and you use them at home. There are 2 different strengths of gel that we offer to our patients to achieve their optimal result, whereas in-office is more for someone who has a big event coming up this weekend – like a reunion or a wedding – and is wanting a quick change. Trays take anywhere from 7-10 days, but you’re able to maintain everything at home on your own and in my professional opinion, give you a better overall result.
Opalescence Go whitening kits
There is some sensitivity involved with most whitening procedures and if either of those cause too much sensitivity for you or you have a little bit of hesitation, we have another option. This option is our professional version of a white strip. It’s a little bit higher concentration gel, but a very similar application of a custom, pre-filled strip that gets molded onto the teeth. You typically wear this from 30 minutes to an hour. These come with about 2 weeks worth of trays in them and are used at home, on your own.
These are all really great options and offer something for everybody. That’s why we do what we do here at Atlanta Dental Spa – we customize your experience and provide what we think will be the best option for you and your goals!
Better life through better dentistry!
