Opalescence has shown to be effective for removing some or all of the internal tooth discoloration due to congenital, systemic, pharmalogic, traumatic, etc., factors and aging. Great success with fluorosis and even tetracycline staining.
The Opalescence refill kits are perfect if you already have bleached your teeth and need to touch up. Most individuals will do a touch up whitening every 3 to 4 months - depending on their personal habits. If you smoke, drink coffee, tea or red wine, you may need to touch up every 2 months.
Just use your own trays with our bleach to keep your teeth as white as possible.
The delicious melon or mint flavored Opalescence gel is worn overnight, while you sleep for ultimate performance and maximum convenience. The patented formula bleaches in as little as 30 minutes in 1-3 daily treatments or for 1-6 hours daytime (if worn overnight, gel will stay active for 8-10 hours).
The active ingredient in Opalescence, carbamide peroxide, has been recognized by the FDA for many years as an oral antiseptic and is now used for its superior tooth whitening properties. Fluoride and potassium nitrate are added to reduce the amount of tooth sensitivity.
Opalescence has a shelf life of 24 months refrigerated (12 months un-refrigerated). Recommended refrigeration temperature range is between 36 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit (2 to 8 degrees Celsius).
