A pearly-white smile is beautiful to look at and can greatly improve self-confidence. Many people are opting for the Opalescence Chairside Whitening System for fast, safe and effective teeth whitening. Opalescence combines the newest advances in dental technology with proven chemical formulas. This ensures that the bleaching experience is efficient, and the results are satisfying.
There are many reasons why teeth become stained or discolored, including tobacco use and drinking dark liquids such as red wine, coffee, tea and cola. However, the natural aging process and prescription medication use can also cause yellowing and graying.
There are literally hundreds of whitening treatments available in the marketplace, including take-home strips, bleaching toothpastes and take-home whitening gels. Many take-home gels are ineffective and may not elicit the desired results. Additionally, some take-home formulations cause damage to the surface of the enamel to make them effective due to acidic pH solutions.
Opalescence whitening system has many advantages over these other treatments, including:
All teeth treated simultaneously.
Faster treatment times.
Longer lasting results.
Removal of stains on crowns, veneers and other restorations.
Safe procedure and treatment.
Treatments are performed by our experienced professional.
It is important to seek advice from Dr. Kamins prior to beginning a bleaching regime. Women who are pregnant or lactating should not seek bleaching treatment, but rather should wait until after they have completed these precious time periods to bleach their teeth.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Stains on teeth can be classified in two ways: extrinsic or intrinsic. Extrinsic stains appear on the surface of your teeth. Intrinsic stains live between the microcracks in your enamel and deep within your dentin (the layer of your tooth underneath your enamel). Whitening toothpastes and mouth rinses may be able to remove some of the extrinsic stains on your teeth. But only teeth whitening agents can remove the stubborn extrinsic stains as well as the unsightly intrinsic stains that cause your teeth to look discolored.
Opalescence gels contain an active whitening ingredient (either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide) that penetrates your enamel to get to discoloring molecules. Oxygen molecules from the whitening agents react with the discolored substances in your teeth, breaking the bonds that hold them together. The oxygen molecules spread, whitening the entire tooth. As a result, you are left with a brighter, whiter smile.
