What is tooth whitening?
Tooth whitening is the removal of stains and discolorations from the enamel and dentin. The outer layer of the tooth is enamel, and beneath the enamel is dentin. Enamel is thin and typically much lighter in color, while dentin is darker in color and makes up the bulk of the tooth. Enamel can be discolored over time simply from age, but also from outside sources like coffee, tea, tobacco, and other foods and beverages. Also, as we age, our enamel thins, causing more dentin to show through, making the overall appearance of the tooth look darker. Whitening your teeth removes these stains and discolorations, giving you a whiter, brighter smile.
How does teeth whitening work?
Working from the inside out, the active ingredients in Opalescence gels penetrate your teeth to break down the discolored molecules deep down in your teeth, removing stains and whitening your smile. Our original, patented formula contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride) and is sticky and viscous, so it stays where it’s placed. This unique feature prevents the gel from migrating during treatment and helping keep the gel and custom tray in place so it can continue whitening your teeth for the duration of the treatment.
How long do teeth whitening results last?
Teeth whitening results are very stable; leaving you with a stunning smile long after 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.
