Opalescence: GO Treatment
Your smile is the very first thing that people notice about you. One of the most prominent features of your smile is your teeth. Bright white teeth can provide you with a brilliant, confident smile that leaves quite the impression. However, there are many factors that can discolor your tooth enamel, leading to a dull smile that leaves you feeling self-conscious. Sylvan Heights Dental can provide you with a way to brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home with Opalescence GO.
What Causes Discoloration?
There are many different reasons why your teeth may become discolored. These causes include:
|What you eat and drink. Certain types of foods and drinks contain high concentrations of dark pigments. These pigments can then stick to your teeth, effectively dulling their brightness.
|Tobacco products. Cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and other tobacco products contain tar and nicotine, which can contribute to significant staining.
|Medications, such as doxycycline.
|Aging. As you get older, the brightness of your smile decreases.
An Alternative to Over the Counter Whiteners
You have probably seen the many over the counter teeth whitening products available in the oral care aisle of your local pharmacy or grocery store. These products, which consist of toothpaste, gels, strips, and more, all contain low levels of bleaching agents. While they can treat minor surface stains, they often cannot provide the drastic results many are searching for.
Opalescence GO is a professional alternative to over the counter whitening options. It is a simple, fast, effective way to whiten your teeth or touch up teeth that have previously been whitened. This treatment allows you to whiten your teeth at home but does not use custom trays. Instead, they are ready to use right out of the box. The trays are pre-filled and come in two different concentrations with two different flavor options.
How Does Opalescence GO Work?
With Opalescence GO, your pre-filled trays are ready to use right out of the box. This treatment uses UltraFIt trays, which adapt to your teeth and provide you with complete coverage from one side of your mouth to the other. This ensures that all of your teeth receive the whitening gel and that the maximum amount of gel stays on your teeth during treatment. Trays are meant to be worn for 30 to 60 minutes or 15 to 20 minutes daily depending upon the concentration and treatment typically takes 5 to 10 days to complete.
