Professional Teeth Whitening in Omaha, NE
Millions of people suffer from the effects of discolored teeth, which can have a detrimental impact on their smiles. While poor hygiene can be a contributing factor, discoloration can also be a sign of age-related frailty of the teeth, caused by various factors.
Professional teeth whitening treatments can provide an easy way to achieve a brighter, whiter smile in just one session. The procedure works by applying a hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth using a tray similar to a retainer. This produces oxygen ions that break down interior and exterior staining, leaving teeth looking brighter and whiter. This bleaching process is highly effective and very safe, with little to no discomfort. At Omaha Healthy Smiles, we offer ready made Opalescence® trays and also custom fit trays.

How is professional teeth whitening performed?
Our office currently offers two different types of professional whitening services: in-office and custom-made trays.
- In-office. These procedures start by covering up vulnerable areas inside the mouth, including the lips and gums, to prevent exposure from the peroxide. Then, we apply a high-concentrate hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it. You will rest comfortably for a short time until the gel does its work. Then we remove the coverings and rinse the gel away.
- Custom-made trays. We will take a custom mold of your teeth to make clear trays that you take home, along with a whitening gel. These trays will help minimize the risk of whitening gel affecting your gums or mouth and you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is place the whitening gel inside the trays and place the trays in your mouth.
How do I whiten my teeth at home?
If you’re looking for a teeth whitening remedy without coming to the dentist, there are a few simple things you can try at home like brushing with baking powder, use hydrogen peroxide to brush or rinse with on an occasional basis (cut the peroxide in half so you are using a 1.5% solution and not a 3% solution, which is common for over-the-counter), use apple cider vinegar as a brushing or rinsing agent, eat more fruits and vegetables they are good for your body and your teeth, limit foods that stain your teeth such as soda, coffee and wine, limit your sugar intake and always remember to brush and floss twice a day—its still a powerful tool.
