Teeth whitening has become one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures in the past few decades. It's an easy and effective way to get a more youthful appearance for a smile that has, over time, become stained by smoking or tobacco use, eating or drinking dark foods such as fruits and vegetables, wine, coffee, sodas and tea and exposure to metal salts, such as iron and copper. Over the counter whitening products make it possible to lessen this type of extrinsic staining to your tooth enamel.
Most patients at our office opt for the Opalescence Go take-home whitening system because it is fast, effective and affordable, with no impressions, models, or lab time required. Many over-the-counter whitening products on the market dehydrate teeth, resulting in uncomfortable sensitivity for patients. Opalescence Go teeth whitening gel contains high water content to help prevent tooth dehydration and fluoride to combat sensitivity. This high water content also helps to reduce shade relapse, maximizing patient satisfaction.
