7 INTERESTING Q&As ABOUT WHITENING

We’re talking facts straight from research experts. The family of Opalescence whitening products has been studied and tested throughout its evolution. No wonder it’s becoming a household name.

Can I Whiten my Teeth When I sleep?

You can whiten while you sleep with a custom tray! A university study proves that Opalescence™ 10% whitening gel stays active for 8–10 hours during overnight whitening.1

Do UV or LED lights help during whitening?

Studies have repeatedly shown that UV or LED do not improve the efficacy of whitening treatments.4 In fact, some research shows that using a light for whitening can be harmful to lips and gums.5 Plus, they’re notorious for shade relapse.

How long will my results last?

It depends on a number of factors. Anything from your biology to your diet can affect how long your teeth stay white. However, Opalescence whitening is effective in helping reduce shade relapse as compared to competitor tooth bleaching products.6 Also, a great whitening toothpaste (such as Opalescence™ Whitening Toothpaste) can lengthen the time between treatments.

Is it messy, or will it hurt my teeth or gums?

The sticky, viscous formula of Opalescence whitening gel does not leach from the tray like other whitening agents.7 Having said that, it’s very important to not move the gel around in your mouth too much. If it lingers on your gums, it might cause irritation or pain. To avoid discomfort, follow the instructions on how to correctly apply the pre-filled trays and syringe gels. Use Opalescence sensitivity relief toothpaste prior and during whitening to help with any tooth discomfort.

Is teeth whitening expensive?

The cost of teeth whitening can vary greatly depending on what you use and where you get it. While over-the-counter teeth whiteners are the least expensive, they may not be the most effective because they are not tailored to your specific needs. Also, they may increase the risk of having sensitive teeth. Other dentist-administered teeth whitening treatments may be more expensive because of costly teeth whitening lights or lasers used in the procedure, but these accessories generally do not provide any added benefit. Opalescence teeth whitening offers the benefits of a dentist prescribed whitening treatment without any costly gimmicks, making it the best value. Talk to your dentist about specific costs and to determine the best whitening option for you.

I want to get started, what do I do now?

Your dental office can get you started on a great whitening regimen. Your hygienist and dentist are fantastic resources for determining regimen, timelines, shade tracking, understanding your particular needs and desires, and (when necessary) sensitivity relief.

Reliable and Effective

I’m a dentist and recommend these to all patients. It is a reliable and effective tooth whitening gel to use in whitening trays. I use it once every other day and then once a week to maintain. I would buy again!

Better than anything out there!

This stuff is a magic worker! I had the trays made when I got my braces off many years ago as a teenager and the gel has consistently been better than anything out there- zoom, dentist stuff, and OTC gels. I use this a couple times a year to keep my teeth pearly white.

Wonderful! Whiter teeth without discomfort. This is the One!

I had given up on whitening toothpastes. They had always burned my tongue and made my eyes and nose run for 15 minutes after use. This product is the answer: it whitens teeth as well as the other harsh drugstore products, but it is pleasant to use. I use this as my regular toothpaste now, and it really helps maintain my whitening treatments. Highly recommended!

Won't live without it!

Opalescence™ is truly a whitening toothpaste, unlike other brands that claim to brighten your teeth but can't back it up. A few years ago, I ran out of Opalescence toothpaste and decided to let it go and try other brands. In just a few months, my teeth were noticeably duller and a bit more yellow. Now I won't go without it again, and my teeth are a very white shade on my dentist's scale.

Opalescence™ Whitening Toothpaste Review

Teeth Whiter and breath fresh and clean.

This is the best toothpaste I have ever tried. Was introduced by dental hygienist. Was doubtful at first. This really works. I use daily and already wouldn’t go back to my old toothpaste. I highly recommend this to anyone that wants whiter teeth. Makes your mouth feel so clean.
