Treatments for Teeth Whitening

More people than ever are turning to teeth whitening to reverse years of stains from coffee, wine, tobacco and more. Not all teeth whitening treatments are created equal, unfortunately. For best results, turn to our dentist at Springfield Complete Dentistry. 

Opalescence Boost

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 Springfield Complete Dentistry, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 703-354-8811 to schedule a consultation.

Take-Home Whitening Trays

With take-home whitening trays, you can get a whiter smile from the comfort of your own home. Our dentist will create custom-made trays to ensure a comfortable and secure fit. You'll also receive detailed instructions regarding how long to wear them each day and how to properly clean them. Keep in mind it may take up to two weeks or more to see results with this method because the whitening gel is in contact with your teeth for shorter periods of time. 

At Springfield Complete Dentistry, we offer both in-office treatment options and take-home teeth whitening kits to help you achieve a bright and beautiful smile. Contact our Springfield, Virginia, office today to schedule a consultation with our dentist and find out which option is right for you.
