Opalescence ® is a proven teeth whitening treatment that eliminates organic stains on the teeth and significantly brightens the smile. Opalescence ® can be used without light activation of the gel. Opalescence ® is an exceptionally quick and simple treatment. Bleaching gel is applied to the teeth for around 30 minutes. Opalescence ® is completely safe and helps to protect dental enamel during treatment with added potassium nitrate and fluoride.
Why should I consider Opalescence ®?
Opalescence ® combines hydrogen peroxide that serves to whiten the teeth, with potassium nitrate that reduces sensitivity and strengthens enamel. This treatment can only be used on generally healthy teeth that are free from disease and decay.
There are a great many reasons why Opalescence ® is often preferred over other brands, including:
Minimizes tooth sensitivity
Promotes strong tooth enamel
Quick treatment times
Reduces risk of tooth dehydration
How is the Opalescence ® treatment performed?
Opalescence ® whitening gel contains 38% hydrogen peroxide and potassium nitrate. After in-office treatment, gel and toothpaste containing lower concentrations of the whitening formula may be prescribed for use at home. The Opalescence ® whitening gel is thick, which reduces mess during application.
Here is how the procedure will be performed:
A thorough cleaning is recommended prior to bleaching
Photographs will be taken to record the current color of the teeth
The first covering of Opalescence ® whitening gel will be applied to the teeth for 30 minutes in office
More gel will be distributed for home use
