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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
