Teeth Whitening Solutions

Teeth whitening is a great solution for achieving a brighter smile. At Rice Creek Family Dentistry we have a variety of teeth whitening procedures. Below you can find details about these procedures.

Opalescence™ Teeth Whitening

One of the teeth whitening procedures that our dentist can perform is the Opalescence in-office teeth whitening treatment. The Opalescence teeth whitening treatment is perfect for patients who are preparing for a special occasion. The Opalescence teeth whitening kit consists of the Opalescence teeth whitening gel, which contains fluoride, potassium nitrate and a chemically activated light.

Take-Home Trays

A great solution for teeth whitening is take home trays since you can use them at home. You can obtain one from our dentist, who will give you with a kit and instructions on how to use it, or you can also purchase from your local pharmacy. This method produces gradual results that appear over time, in contrast to the instant results that in-office whitening treatments often provide.


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.
