Choose between two professional teeth whitening solutions: laser teeth whitening right here in our Covington, KY dental office, or convenient take-home whitening kits by leading brand Opalescence.
How Does Laser Teeth Whitening Work?
Whitening your teeth with our in-office dental laser is safe, convenient, and effective. There are no trays and you don't need to apply gels at home or wear whitening trays overnight. When you visit our Covington dental office for your whitening treatment, Dr. Applegate will apply a special paste to your teeth office. From there, the laser is used for approximately 40 seconds per tooth.
While everyone’s smile is different, most patients find that their teeth are lightened by 4-8 shades with laser teeth whitening!
Is In-Office Teeth Whitening Right For Me?
Do you want a whiter smile but don’t want the inconvenience of using whitening trays or gels at home? Laser teeth whitening could be the best option for you as you can see a whiter smile in just one visit to our Covington dental practice!
Laser whitening not only removes common food stains left by wine, coffee, and tea, but also can be effective at removing tougher stains caused by medication. Even still, in-office laser whitening isn't your only treatment options — Applegate Dentistry also offers take-home teeth whitening kits to help you achieve results on the go!
How Opalescence® Teeth Whitening Works
Opalescence® Teeth Whitening is a highly effective method to brighten your teeth. Dr. Applegate will create custom trays tailored to your teeth, ensuring an even and comfortable application of the whitening gel. The magic behind Opalescence® lies in its active ingredient, carbamide peroxide. This compound breaks down into hydrogen peroxide, the primary bleaching agent responsible for removing stains from your teeth.
Opalescence® whitening gel comes in various concentrations: 10%, 15%, 20%, and 35%. While all concentrations deliver stunning results over time, Dr. Applegate will recommend the ideal formula based on your goals and specific oral conditions.
Is Take-Home Teeth Whitening Right For Me?
Opalescence® Teeth Whitening is a safe, well-tolerated procedure for most individuals. If you have healthy teeth, good oral hygiene, and are not pregnant, this treatment can brighten and whiten your smile.
One of the advantages of take-home whitening is its convenience. You can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home using the custom trays provided. These trays also allow you to maintain your dazzling results for years to come, and we're always happy to order whitening gel refills for you whenever you need them.
