Home Teeth Whitening

Opalescence Home Whitening

Discolourations or stains on the teeth can have a negative impact on an otherwise nice looking smile. Even if teeth are straight or properly aligned, unsightly dark spots or discolourations (due to a number of factors) can still make a smile very unattractive – and can even make you look a lot older than what your actual age is. Teeth become stained or discoloured due to a variety of reasons (such as the natural ageing process, smoking, tooth decay, etc.), and the unsightly stains that are left on the teeth may be challenging to remove permanently.

 

Teeth whitening treatments are designed to improve the appearance of teeth, so their brightness and whiteness can be brought back; these treatments work in removing the stains or discolourations on the surface of the teeth, so that smiles can once again become white and healthy looking. To those who want to have whiter teeth, but prefer not to go to a dentist’s clinic to have the treatment – home teeth whitening kits provide the best options for the improvement of smiles. Opalescence Home Whitening products provide you with an opportunity to whiten your teeth in the convenience of your own home – using an effectively safe way that is custom-made just for your specific needs.

 

 

Video: How are Whitening Trays Made?

  • One of the methods for whitening teeth uses a ‘tray’.
  • First of all, impressions are taken from which a study model is made.
  • This is painted with a special material which increases the thickness of the tooth area.
  • When the tray is prepared, a small pocket is produced.
  • The whitening solution occupies this pocket ensuring that it only comes into contact with the required surfaces and that no damage is done to the soft gums.

Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels

Opalescence is a recognised world leader in tray-based tooth whitening products and systems. The Opalescence home whitening gel is a 20% water gel that works in preventing dehydration; the potassium nitrate and fluoride formula, on the other hand, work to address sensitivity concerns. Opalescence Take Home Whitening gels are custom-made and are available only through dentists, to ensure that safety and effectiveness are guaranteed throughout the teeth whitening procedure – even if the treatment is done in the comfort of your own home.

Benefits of Opalescence Home Whitening Gels

  • Safety Guaranteed – Opalescence home whitening gels are guaranteed safe because they are only available through your dentist, who will be the one to supervise the teeth whitening treatment from the very start, up until the entire tooth whitening procedure is completed successfully. Most Opalescence home whitening gel formulations include potassium fluoride (PF) that helps strengthen the tooth enamel, better protection from cavities, and overall improves the oral health. The home teeth whitening gels from Opalescence are also formulated to be viscous and sticky – preventing the formula from spreading to the gums.
  • Custom-Made – The home whitening gels from Opalescence are administered with the use of custom-made bleaching trays that are created specifically from a patient’s unique teeth impression; the effectiveness of Opalescence home whitening gels are influenced to a high extent by these customised bleaching trays. The use of the Opalescence home whitening gel can further be customised by choosing from three available flavours (regular, melon, and mint), and from choosing from the five available formulations.
  • Highly Effective – Opalescence Home Whitening gels are proven to be powerful with the teeth whitening process, with options available in 10%, 10% PF, 15% PF, 20% PF, and 35% PF carbamide peroxide; your dentist will guide you with choosing with prescription strength formulation will be suitable for your own specific teeth whitening concerns and desired results. The teeth whitening results from the Opalescence home whitening gel can be seen after just one night of use in some cases; however, more visible and dramatic results can be expected after about one week’s use of the prescription strength Opalescence take home whitening gel.
