Opalescence Teeth Whitening
Even if you have always taken excellent care of your oral health, you will notice some discoloration of your teeth over time. It's a product of aging, helped along by genetics and lifestyle choices like the foods and drinks we consume or tobacco use.
At Meadow Creek Family Dentistry, we are pleased to offer the convenience of professional take-home teeth whitening. There's a wide variety of whitening products available, and we have chosen those that produce the fastest, most consistent results for our patients.
Reasons to Choose Professional Whitening
There's an overwhelming selection of over-the-counter teeth whitening products, and they all claim to produce amazing results. If you're lucky, after investing a lot of money and effort using these products, you may see a slight whitening of your teeth.
But professional-strength whiteners like those available at Meadow Creek Family Dentistry contain a higher percentage of peroxide, the ingredient that removes stubborn stains and discoloration. Another benefit is that you have a professional to whom you can turn if you face a problem like sensitivity.
Whitening Products We Offer
We have found the most dramatic results can be achieved with at-home whitening kits customized for you at our Inman, SC dental office. With this method, you use whitening trays for 15 to 90 minutes every day for about two weeks. Since your teeth stay in contact with the whiteners longer, you can achieve more dramatic results than you can with a single in-office treatment.
We work with Opalescence products because we find they are the easiest to use while still producing a bright, white smile.
Opalescence PF contains fluoride and potassium nitrate and has a high water content to combat sensitivity. Your customized whitening trays are prepared using impressions of your teeth, and the sticky nature of the gel prevents it from seeping out and irritating sensitive gum tissue.
There are four different concentrations and three flavors to choose from, so we can completely customize your take-home kit to fit your needs and preferences.
Opalescence Go offers the convenience of at-home treatment without the need for impressions or the wait for customized whitening trays.
This method uses pre-filled trays that comfortably adapt to the shape of your teeth. The trays are made of a thin, form-fitting material that stays in place, unlike whitening strips. Wear the trays every day for 15 to 90 minutes (we'll tell you how much wear time you need), and in about two weeks, you'll see the stunning results.
