Topical teeth whiteners commonly use hydrogen peroxide as the primary ingredient. When used incorrectly, this can lead to heightened sensitivity. When used excessively, it may actually damage the teeth. These are two compelling reasons to consider professional teeth whitening over at-home options.

It is well-known that tooth whitening can lead to sensitivity. Findings from studies looking into enamel damage are not quite as established. While there is some evidence that tooth whitening can do irreversible damage to teeth, multiple studies have found the opposite to be true as well. All of this points to one simple fact: it really is best to have your teeth whitened by a cosmetic dentist who can help protect against over-application, reduce risks of sensitivity, and provide services that strengthen, as well as brighten, the smile.

Whitening your teeth on your own is messier, less reliable, and more likely to result in complications. If you are considering a tooth whitening procedure, get in touch with us today to schedule a consultation and learn if one of our professional services could help you reach your goals.

Opalescence Boost

At Desert Smiles, we offer Opalescence Boost for in-office teeth whitening. Fast and reliable, Boost is also formulated with potassium nitrate and fluoride, one of which works to reduce sensitivity, one of which works to strengthen the enamel. Incredibly effective, Boost can lighten the shade of your teeth several times over without causing any damage to the enamel. Better still, the process takes very little time and can be completed during a single office visit.

In addition to Opalescence Boost, we offer take-home kits with prescription-strength bleaching gel that allow you to brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home. These kits come with personalized application trays, which work to prevent seepage, reduce irritation, and produce consistently pleasing results.
