If you prefer teeth that are immediately whiter right now or you would rather whiten your teeth over a few nights while you sleep, Dr. Flores-Noto and Dr. Swager have your answer with Opalescence! With over 100 million smiles brightened and 30 years of experience, Opalescence Teeth Whitening is the global leader in professional teeth whitening.
Strips or paint-on gels are a waste of time. Get your teeth whiter in a fraction of the time with Opalescence!
Whitening your teeth removes these stains and discolorations, giving you a whiter, brighter smile. The active ingredients in Opalescence teeth whitening gels pass into your teeth to oxidize the discolored molecules deep down in your teeth, removing stains and whitening your smile. Our original, patented formula contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride) for patient comfort and is sticky and viscous, so it stays where it’s placed. This unique feature prevents the teeth whitening gel from seeping out during treatment, ensuring both the gel and tray stay in place and work effectively for the duration of your treatment
There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea or tobacco. During tooth formation consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. With an oral exam, Drs. Flores-Noto and Swager can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, including a shade assessment.
Lots of other in-office whitening treatments use an LED light or a laser during the whitening process. You’ve probably seen commercials for these kinds of teeth whiteners. Or maybe you’ve even seen kiosks in the mall where they use a light to whiten your teeth. Are these lights and lasers really effective, though?
Current research shows that only hydrogen peroxide (the whitening agent used in Opalescence Boost in-office whitening and Opalescence Go tray whitening) or carbamide peroxide are effective in whitening teeth. Light activation adds no additional benefit. In fact, some research shows that using a light for whitening can be harmful to lips and gums.
Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, Opalescence is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
Like with many other dental or medical treatments, people have wondered if teeth whitening during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or IVF is safe.
Because no studies have been done regarding the safety of teeth whitening during pregnancy, the ADA suggests that “clinicians may consider recommending that teeth whitening be deferred during pregnancy.”7 Most dental professionals follow this suggestion, making it the standard protocol throughout the dental community, and recommend their patients don’t whiten during pregnancy or fertility treatments.
We agree and recommend that pregnant or breastfeeding women, women undergoing fertility treatment, and patients with serious health concerns do not use teeth whiteners.
Teeth whitening results are very stable, leaving you with a stunning smile long after your teeth whitening treatment is over. However, there are a few factors that can make teeth lose their luster. Things like genetics, diet, age, some medications (like tetracycline), and certain habits (like smoking) may affect the length of your whitening results. Fortunately, touch-up treatments are quick and easy, helping you get that bright, white smile back.
No. During the procedure, patients can actually watch television or listen to music. Many fall asleep.
Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.
The entire procedure takes just over one hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure (we recommend a cleaning prior to the actual Zoom! Whitening session).
Tooth sensitivity is a relatively common side effect of teeth whitening. No harm is caused to your tooth as a result of a whitening treatment, and this discomfort is not an indication of damage to your tooth. If sensitivity occurs, it is most often temporary and will go away when you’ve completed the whitening process. If you do experience tooth sensitivity, there are ways to treat it using desensitizing toothpastes and gels such as Opalescence Whitening Toothpaste Sensitivity Relief or UltraEZ desensitizing gel. Consult with your dentist to determine the best treatment for your needs.
Opalescence teeth whitening is available from dental professionals. This ensures that you receive safe, untampered, and real Opalescence teeth whitening. After a routine exam to ensure you are a good candidate for teeth whitening, your dentist will provide you with the right Opalescence teeth whitening product for your needs.
