The first step to accomplishing anything is to make the decision to do it. If you want to whiten your teeth, you have a world of options to choose from. There are endless options in the pharmacy and grocery store aisles. If you decide to go to your dentist for help, your dentist can help you choose the best route to the smile of your dreams. Depending on your needs, there are different whitening systems that may work for you. In some situations, other forms of cosmetic dentistry may be needed to reach your goals. Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry of Kansas City has a few different whitening solutions.

Ready to Take Home

Opalescence Go is a take-home kit that includes disposable mouth trays that are pre-filled with a professional-grade whitening gel. Opalescence Go is ready to wear right out of the package, and the mouth trays are moldable to your smile. There are flavors to choose from: mint, melon, or peach. If you are working with a smaller budget, this may be a great option for your smile.

A Customized Solution

Opalescence PF whitening gel is customized for your smile. Your dentist will first take impressions of your smile to customize whitening trays to fit your smile perfectly. Custom trays allow for the gel to penetrate every unique curve of your smile. The customized mouth trays can be included in a kit for you to take-home with you.

Whitening in Office

Rather than taking a kit home, Opalescence Boost can be done in the comfort of the dentist’s chair. This option can provide the fastest results letting you leave the office with a brighter smile. Opalescence Boost is chemically activated, which means that a special curing light is not necessary to activate the gel.

Other Cosmetic Options

A major benefit of working with your dentist to whiten your teeth is that your dentist can identify when whitening may not be enough. Discoloration from within the tooth may need to be addressed through other forms of cosmetic dentistry like bonding or veneers.
