Laser teeth whitening is administered in a dental office exclusively, and is the most expensive method for whitening. All forms of teeth whitening work by releasing oxygen ions from a tooth whitening gel, which gently lift stains from the teeth. The laser simply lifts the stains faster. Another advantage of the laser is that (depending on the type of laser used) it can more easily be used to bleach one tooth at a time. This is helpful when one tooth is more discolored than the surrounding teeth.Read more about Laser
LaserSmile® is the most advanced in-office accelerated tooth whitening system available today. It creates a more aesthetic appearance by reversing discoloration of tooth enamel. The LaserSmile® teeth whitening system is a simple, painless, and effective process that brightens your smile without increased tooth sensitivity or the uncomfortable excess heat caused by other whitening methods. This in-office procedure utilizes a special laser to activate the whitening gel for dramatic, long-lasting results.Read more about LaserSmile® (Laser)

Take Home Trays
Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform at the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment that can be easily obtained. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth, and whiten your teeth through a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.
These trays, once made for you, can then be taken home as a teeth whitening kit, along with the guidelines given by our dentist. The time period that they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs. They can also be used several times to achieve the desired results. Our dentist can further advice on how many times they should be used in your case.
Custom whitening trays are trays that are clear and are usually made of a clear plastic that comfortably adjusts when inserted. A hydrogen peroxide-infused gel is inserted in each tray, giving them their whitening properties. The gel consists of a hydrogen peroxide solution that actively whitens the enamel of the teeth.
After they have been used and are taken off, they need to be cleaned with a Q-tip or a cloth and rinsed. This makes them ready to be used again. It is not recommended to use them for at least another day, after each application. Our dentist would be happy to further go into detail about the process during your teeth whitening consultation.
Venus White® is a take-home whitening kit for custom trays your dentist at Dental Plus creates for you. The trays contain a special whitening gel, which is available in a range of concentrations so that your dentist can devise an effective, customized treatment plan that eliminates stains and brightens your smile while protecting your teeth from uncomfortable sensitivity.Read more about Venus White®
The Zoom teeth whitening kit consists of hydrogen peroxide gel and an overhead lamp that delivers UV light. In the Zoom teeth whitening procedure, the hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the patient’s teeth. Once the hydrogen peroxide gel has been applied, an overhead lamp delivers UV light to the teeth. The UV light penetrates the enamel, making for a whiter smile.
There are many teeth whitening methods, each containing a similar yet different process and outcome. Treatments will affect each individual differently, which is why we will recommend a proper consultation with our dentist prior to choosing the right option for you. Additionally, everyone's current state of oral health is different, so certain treatments may not work for you. If you are looking to achieve a brighter smile, visit Dental Plus in Logansport, Indiana, for effective and efficient teeth whitening services.
