With take-home whitening treatment, regular use and good oral hygiene can keep your smile bright for many months at a time. Your dentist will supervise your at-home whitening treatment and determine how long and how often you should use it for optimal results.
The total cost of your teeth whitening treatment will depend on your unique cosmetic needs. Your dentist will perform an examination of your teeth during your cosmetic consultation to determine the best way to achieve your desired results. We will provide you with a complete breakdown of all treatment costs and associated fees so you know exactly what to expect.
Patients typically see whitening in 7-10 days with maximum results after 14-24 days. Keep up with regular whitening treatment as recommended by your dentist to achieve and maintain your brightest results.
While Opalescence products contain potassium nitrate and fluoride to prevent discomfort during whitening treatment, patients may experience some temporary gum irritation or tooth sensitivity following a whitening session. The effects are usually mild and pass quickly.
Your teeth can become dull, yellow, or gray over time due to your diet, drinking dark-colored or carbonated beverages, smoking and tobacco usage, age and family history, certain medications, and dental trauma. Professional teeth whitening treatment can remove these harsh stains from your enamel and reveal a brighter, more natural smile.
