Teeth Whitening Options

Professional teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments as more people than ever are striving to look and feel their best. At Rockingham Dental Group - Exeter, we offer a variety of treatment options, including in-office procedures and take-home teeth whitening kits. Our dentist will help you determine which option is best for you to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. 

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 Rockingham Dental Group - Exeter, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 603-772-7874 to schedule a consultation.

Take-Home Whitening Trays

At Rockingham Dental Group - Exeter, your comfort and convenience are our top priority. For this reason, we offer take-home whitening trays so you don't have to spend an hour in our office to get a brighter smile. Instead, you'll receive custom-fitted take-home trays and professional-strength whitening gel, along with instructions from our dentist for how long to whiten and when. Although take-home teeth whitening kits take longer to produce the desired results, they can be done on your own time, so you can choose a time that's most convenient for you. To learn more about our take-home whitening trays, contact our Exeter, New Hampshire, office at 603-772-7874. 

Zoom!

Zoom is a bleaching process widely used to lighten discoloration of enamel and dentin. Tooth discoloration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine, or from smoking. The aging process also can stain and darken your teeth. The Zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp – to accelerate the bleaching process – to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.
