Dental office whitening versus home care

Effective teeth whitening starts at your dentist’s office. The reason is similar to the difference between over-the-counter and prescription medications. Whitening systems you can purchase for home use simply aren’t as strong as those used at Dr. Valarie Pinkerton's office. We offer the BIOLASE Epic diode laser whitening system.

The benefits of the BIOLASE Laser

The BIOLASE Laser teeth whitening system for its patients who seek professional results from their smile brightening treatment. A two-part system, BIOLASE uses a chemical gel of 40% hydrogen peroxide that’s activated chemically using a special-action double syringe to apply fresh whitener every time.

As well as its powerful concentration of hydrogen peroxide, one of the most popular teeth whitening agents, the Opalescence Boost gel contains fluoride and potassium nitrate to add strength to your teeth along with brighter results.

The thick gel is easy to see, for fast removal at the end of your treatment, and it stays in place to produce the best bleaching effect without damaging your gums. This also allows treatment of a single tooth to match those that surround it.

What to expect from a BIOLASE treatment

Your treatment starts with the insertion of a small blocking dam to keep any whitener from spilling beyond your teeth, followed by a resin barrier to protect your gums. Then you’re ready for the series of  BIOLASE applications. The surfaces to be whitened are covered with the whitening gel and activated with a special laser. Device.

Once your whitening is done, the resin barrier is removed, and you’re done for the day. You may return for additional whitening, in case the first session didn’t meet your goal, but you need to wait about 3-5 days. In addition, we offer Opalescence Go to help maintain your newly whitened teeth at home.
