The fastest treatment for teeth whitening in Ann Arbor is Opalescence Boost. This in-office procedure only takes about an hour, and it can whiten teeth by several shades. It uses an extremely strong, chemically activated gel to penetrate teeth and break up even stains that have been there for many years. One of the things we love about the Boost gel is that it contains a compound called PF, which will reduce your sensitivity after the procedure and even strengthen your teeth.
Here’s what you can expect during your treatment:
You’re going to love your new smile, and you’ll want to do everything within your power to make your new glow last as long as possible. Maintaining your look is easy because the fee for your initial treatment (which is only $275) includes an at-home touch-up kit. Using special trays and a strong bleaching gel, you can use the kit to periodically remove new stains that might creep up on your teeth.
It’s important that you follow the instructions with your bleaching kit. Leaving the gel on your teeth for longer than recommended could cause your teeth to become overly sensitive. If your dentist provides you with the stronger bleaching gel (15 percent hydrogen peroxide), you should only leave it on your teeth for 15 – 20 minutes at a time. If you have the milder gel (10 percent hydrogen peroxide), it’s safe to leave it on your teeth for 30 – 60 minutes at a time.
Of course, there are ways beyond touch-up bleaching that can help you keep your smile nice and bright. Try to cut back on foods and drinks that might cause new stains, such as coffee and red wine. Also, use a whitening toothpaste daily to fight surface discoloration.
The Opalescence whitening system is safe for most patients, but it may not work for everyone. For example, if you have restorations on your front teeth (such as crowns or fillings), the bleaching gel won’t do anything to change their color. Also, if your teeth are prone to sensitivity, you might talk to your dentist about skipping the in-office treatment and using an at-home whitening kit instead.
