Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening is a procedure that restores the natural color of your teeth. There are many teeth whitening techniques offered at our dental office.

We would love to help you achieve the smile you've been looking for, so if you want more information on the procedures or products mentioned below, don't hesitate to call us to schedule an appointment with our team.

Opalescence™

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 Terrace Dental Associates, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 631-277-3100 to schedule a consultation.

Take Home Trays

What makes over the counter  teeth whitening kits so popular is that they can be done at home. These trays are available for both sensitive and non-sensitive teeth. Each teeth whitening kit consists of impression trays and teeth whitening gels. These "take-home trays" are engineered for anyone to use, and come with instructions on how to perform the procedure yourself.
