Teeth Whitening Q & A

How does in-office whitening work?

Opalescence in-office teeth whitening uses a powerful hydrogen peroxide power bleaching gel to remove internal and external tooth discoloration. The Opalescence whitening system is effective at removing a number of different types of discoloration, including tetracycline and fluorosis discoloration. 

Unlike other forms of teeth whitening, Opalescence allows you to whiten your teeth without the use of an uncomfortable laser or LED light. Once applied, the powerful whitening gel works from the inside out, penetrating the enamel and dissolving discoloration. Opalescence in-office whitening treatments allow you to achieve a visibly brighter smile in just one visit. 

How does take-home whitening work? 

Take-home whitening allows you to achieve professional whitening results in the comfort of your own home. Whether you’re juggling a busy schedule or looking for a way to maintain the brightness of your smile, Opalescence offers several different concentrations to fit your needs. Take-home whitening kits consist of a powerful bleaching gel and custom made whitening trays. The trays are custom made from impressions of your teeth. This allows for a comfortable and snug fit that helps deliver optimal results.  

During your initial visit, Dr. Studer instructs you on the frequency and duration of your at-home treatment. Depending on the status of your teeth discoloration, you may be able to achieve your desired results with treatments lasting only 15 minutes. 

Is teeth whitening safe?

The Opalescence teeth whitening system is a safe and effective method of teeth whitening that causes no damage to your teeth or gums. Although minor sensitivity is a common side effect, it is typically short-lived and subsides once the treatment is over. With the right at-home care like proper oral hygiene and avoiding staining foods, you can enjoy your bright smile for years to come. 

Although teeth whitening is a safe, low-risk treatment, it’s best performed on patients with healthy teeth and gums. If you have any underlying oral health issues, Dr. Studer and his team can provide treatment before whitening your teeth treatment.
