For Teeth Whitening, 01007 Residents Trust Opalescence
Those over-the-counter teeth whitening products you see in your grocery or pharmacy are tempting. A word of caution, however: the bleaching agents in any teeth whitening system do not maintain their strength indefinitely. The potency diminishes with time. When you buy teeth whitening in a store or even online, there’s no way to know how long a product has been sitting on the shelf. Therefore, the potency cannot be guaranteed. With Opalescence take-home teeth whitening from Valley Dentists, you can be certain you’re receiving bleaching gel that is full-strength.
Stains on your teeth are either extrinsic or intrinsic. An extrinsic stain is confined to the enamel, or outer surface of your teeth. Intrinsic stains, on the other hand, hide in small cracks in the enamel and even deep in a tooth’s dentin, the layer beneath the enamel. And while extrinsic stains can sometimes be removed by regularly brushing with a whitening toothpaste, intrinsic stains require stronger whitening ingredients.
Opalescence take-home teeth whitening system contains either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide that penetrates your tooth enamel in order to correct the staining and discoloration of molecules deep inside a tooth. The oxygen molecules in the whitening agents react with your teeth’s discolored molecules to break the bonds that hold them together. As the oxygen molecules release, the entire tooth becomes whiter and brighter.
In addition to whitening ingredients, Opalescence also contains an agent that strengthens your teeth and reduces the likelihood of tooth sensitivity. PF, or potassium nitrate and fluoride, helps prevent cavities and decreases the sensitivity that can happen after using other teeth whitening systems.
After you’ve completed the course of whitening that Dr. Medaugh recommends, you can maintain your white smile by practicing good oral hygiene, including regularly scheduled dental cleanings and exams with Valley Dentists.
