Teeth Whitening

Brighten Your Smile:

Even with regular brushing and flossing, regular cleanings, and teeth whitening toothpastes, our teeth can still get gradually dimmer. Over-the-counter tooth whiteners barely make a difference. With Royal Oak professional teeth whitening treatments, you can regain the bright smile of your youth in as little as one hour!

Ultradent’s Opalescence Xtra Boost

Royal Oak Dental Group uses the Opalescence Power Boost for patients who want quick in-office results. Xtra Boost is a hydrogen peroxide teeth bleaching gel that is chemically activated for power bleaching and applied via a syringe. There is no need for light activation. In just one hour, you can walk out of our office with a whiter, brighter smile.

Royal Oak also offers take-home teeth whitening treatments if you’d prefer to do gradual whitening at your own pace. Help your lackluster smile regain brilliant sparkle and shine with Royal Oak Dental Group’s proven North Carolina teeth whitening treatments.

Answers to Your Tooth Whitening Questions

  1. When is the best time to whiten teeth?
    Tooth whitening can be performed anytime you are unsatisfied with the color of your smile. If you are also considering other cosmetic dentistry treatments, you will want to have your tooth whitening treatments before those procedures. Any restorations placed after tooth whitening can be matched to your new brighter tooth shade. Keep in mind that dental work like porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers cannot be lightened once they are permanently placed.
  2. Does tooth whitening pose any harm to teeth or gums?
    All of the tooth whitening options at Royal Oak Dental Group’s office are completely safe and use only FDA approved elements. Royal Oak Dental Group is highly trained in the protocol of whitening safety. Gums and lips are isolated during the tooth whitening process to ensure their safety.
  3. How long do whitening results last?
    It is different with each person. You can keep them looking bright by brushing and flossing regularly, getting them professionally cleaned twice a year, not smoking, and avoiding staining foods and drinks. Well cared-for teeth can retain their tooth whitening results for up to three years. You can also visit Royal Oak Dental Group for short touch-up sessions to keep your smile looking its best.
  4. Why not choose over-the-counter whiteners instead?
    First of all, over-the-counter whiteners require a lot of patience because most of these systems will require several applications. Secondly, the results from these products do not come close to the results that can be achieved with professional tooth whitening. “Whitening” toothpastes are targeted toward removing superficial stains and do not address intrinsic (internal) discoloration.
  5. Am I a good candidate for whitening?
    Visit one of our offices to find out if professional tooth whitening is a good option for you. They will take X-rays, examine your teeth and gums to make sure you are in good health, and make sure you do not have any areas that may be especially sensitive to whitening gels. Ideal candidates have no cavities and have dental work that is solid and not breaking down.

Dear Patient:
 
We hope this message finds you safe and healthy as we all collectively do our best to navigate the COVID-19 health crisis. Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout these challenging times. Because the health and safety of our patients and community is paramount, it has been necessary to limit our patient care to urgent and emergency care over these last few months.

As we have closely followed recommendations from the North Carolina Dental Board, CDC, and other reputable health organizations, we recognize the importance of regional-specific guidance based on the most comprehensive, accurate, and current scientific literature and data available. While community guidelines may continue to evolve, we must continue to make our treatment decisions based on the best knowledge available. It is our job to help improve the health of our patients by approaching comprehensive dental treatment PROACTIVELY, not just reacting after the compromise has become irreversible in nature.

With this in mind, we have made the decision to safely reopen our doors to ALL PATIENTS beginning Monday, May 11th. This means routine dental care, such as cleanings and simple restorations, will resume. When you come to our office you will notice the following elevated measures and precautions that we believe are necessary to maintain until we emerge from this COVID-19 environment (and likely thereafter):  

  • Sanitation stations in the front desk/waiting area
  • Anti-microbial Hydrogen Peroxide mouth rinses before the start of each appointment
  • Hi-Evacuation suction for hygiene appointments to minimize cavitron-related aerosols
  • Patient entrance doors will remain open to reduce contact 
  • Mandatory pre-screening questionnaire over the phone when appointments are confirmed and upon arrival to the office, in addition to temperature checks of ALL STAFF and PATIENTS
  • Patients will wait in their vehicles until their appointment begins
  • Limited access to patient waiting areas and operatories whenever possible (e.g. restricted to patients, parents of young children, translators, service animals, special needs assistance, etc.)
  • Enhanced social distancing measures throughout the office 

This is not the first crisis that we have endured as a state or as a nation, and we look forward to overcoming this event better, stronger and more resilient than ever before. We cannot thank you enough for trusting us with your oral health. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns, and let us know if there is anything we can do to better serve you.
 
Sincerely,
Royal Oak Dental Group
