You can use teeth whitening in Urbandale, IA to bring back your healthy looking smile if your teeth have become stained from smoking, drinking coffee, or aging. Calculus, tarter build-up, and even some medications can also darken your teeth. Unlike laser whitening of teeth or bleaching, tooth whitening focuses on safely restoring the natural color of your teeth for a beautiful, natural smile.
Very few people have brilliant white smiles, so even subtle changes in shading can make you look years younger.
McDonald Family Dentistry in Urbandale offers a few professional whitening systems to brighten your smile:
Opalescence In-Office Whitening System
Do you have a special occasion coming up? In about an hour, you can have a dazzling white smile! Opalescence Boost is a chemically activated power whitening gel that provides brighter, whiter teeth right in the dental chair during your visit. The powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide gel is chemically activated, so it doesn’t require a hot, uncomfortable light – just a nice relaxing visit while you’re teeth are whitening.
Custom Designed Trays with Take-Home Whitening Gel Kit is another popular option. It’s a home bleaching and tooth whitening system that produces results in two to six weeks. An advantage with this system is that you can use the custom-fitted reusable upper & lower trays to do booster whitening as your teeth may change in the future because of daily staining due to diet, etc. Simply refill the whitening gel syringes to be used as often as you wish with your own personal trays.
Opalescence Go! Pre-filled Whitening Trays
This powerful, professional whitening system comes in a kit of 10 trays and requires no office visit. If used daily for about 20 minute sessions, patients can experience whiter, brighter results in their smiles in as little as five to ten days!
