What is Opalescence Teeth Whitening?

Opalescence® is a proven teeth whitening treatment that is designed to eliminate organic teeth stains to achieve a brighter, healthier-looking smile. Opalescence® can be applied either with or without light activation of the gel provided per the preferences of the dentist. Opalescence® is an incredibly simple treatment that can be carried out in a short amount of time. Opalescence® is a totally safe and effective treatment that protects dental enamel during treatment by using an extra amount of potassium nitrate and fluoride.

Prescription-strength Opalescence Tooth Whitening Systems are widely considered to be stronger and more effective than their over-the-counter counterparts. They can only be obtained through a dentist. 

What Are the Benefits of Opalescence?

There is a litany of reasons that Opalescence® is preferred by patients and practitioners to other brands. Opalescence comes with various benefits, including:

  • A drastic reduction in tooth sensitivity
  • Strengthening of tooth enamel
  • A relatively quick treatment
  • Lower risk of tooth dehydration
  • Clinically proven results

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Opalescence?

Opalescence® involves a combination of hydrogen peroxide, which successfully whitens teeth, and potassium nitrate, which can achieve a major reduction in tooth sensitivity while fortifying enamel. While this treatment is suitable for virtually all patients, it is vital that the teeth be free of extensive decay and disease.

How is the Opalescence Treatment Performed?

Opalescence® whitening gel contains 38% hydrogen peroxide and potassium nitrate. This gel is used during the in-office treatment, after which patients will receive a gel and toothpaste that contain lower concentrations of the formula for at-home use. The Opalescence® whitening gel is considerably thick, ensuring that there is minimal mess during the application and treatment process.

The procedure involves the following steps:

  • A full cleaning is performed to remove any excess debris from the surface of the teeth
  • Photographs of the teeth are taken prior to the treatment to have a record of their initial color
  • A cheek retractor is inserted in order to better illuminate key teeth in the mouth
  • A resin is applied to the gums to keep them protected throughout the treatment process
  • The first coating of Opalescence ® whitening gel is applied to the teeth for approximately 15 minutes
  • The gel is then suctioned off of the teeth so that the practitioner can monitor the whitening process
  • Additional gel is applied and left on for 15 minutes
  • The gel is then removed again
  • The mouth is thoroughly rinsed before the final round of gel is applied
  • The mouth is then thoroughly cleaned and post-treatment photos are taken in order to assess the state of the teeth

In some cases, the dentist will choose to expedite the whitening process by using a specialized light, which is applied for about 30 seconds for every gel application. The entire procedure, including the initial cleaning, typically lasts no more than 90 minutes.
