Teeth Whitening

Laser Teeth Whitening

Laser teeth whitening is administered in a dental office exclusively, and is the most expensive method for whitening. All forms of teeth whitening work by releasing oxygen ions from a tooth whitening gel, which gently lift stains from the teeth. The laser simply lifts the stains faster. Another advantage of the laser is that (depending on the type of laser used) it can more easily be used to bleach one tooth at a time. This is helpful when one tooth is more discolored than the surrounding teeth.

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 Weatherford Complete Dental, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 580-772-2441 to schedule a consultation.

Take-Home Whitening Trays

Take-Home Whitening Trays

Several companies have introduced teeth-whitening kits to use at home, but we recommend that you speak with our dentist before using any of them.

Take-home whitening trays are an easy and cost-effective treatment alternative that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. 

Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom-made to go over your teeth and whiten them through a special gel placed on the inside of the trays.

These trays, once made for you, can then be taken home along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth-whitening needs.
