Opalescence whitening is a fast, safe and effective way to brighten your smile. In under an hour, your teeth can be up to eight shades whiter. Opalescence whitening is for everyone, and patients will see results immediately.
Opalescence whitening can be a great option for patients seeking cosmetic treatment with little to no recovery time. The treatment can be completed in just over an hour, making it a great option for busy schedules or impatient patients. This means that patients can schedule their whitening treatment during their lunch break or work break.
Opalescence teeth whitening in-office treatment is ideal for patients with deep stainings, such as those caused by medications, beverages such as coffee or tobacco use.
Opalescence whitening is a procedure in which a special gel is applied to teeth and then exposed to a bleaching agent. Opalescence whitening can whiten teeth by up to eight shades, which is more effective than over-the-counter whitening products.
The dentist will start by thoroughly examining the patient’s teeth. This helps the dentist to determine if the patient is a good candidate for Opalescence whitening. The dentist will then clean the teeth thoroughly. Next, the teeth are dried and isolated using a dental dam. They will apply a special gel to your teeth and gums. This gel contains a hydrogen peroxide whitening agent. Next, the dentist will cover your gums and lips to protect them from the bleaching agent. Then, they will apply a special light to activate the gel. After the gel is removed, the dental dam is removed and the teeth are rinsed.
Your teeth may feel sensitive following your Opalescence whitening treatment, but this should subside within 24 hours. You should avoid drinking dark liquids, such as coffee, tea, and red wine. These can stain your teeth. You should also avoid tobacco products.
