Opalescence® Teeth Whitening Systems

At Waxahachie Family Dentistry, we’re proud to offer the Opalescence teeth whitening system. For over 25 years, Opalescence has been the leader in professional whitening with safe and effective products you can use from the comfort of your home. In just a matter of days, you can remove stubborn stains and discoloration to achieve the dazzling white smile of your dreams.

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?

Your dentist knows your oral health needs and can make recommendations to optimize the whitening process. They’ll be able to answer any questions you have about the Opalescence system and provide instructions to ensure you’re comfortable with using the products at home.

Unlike whitening toothpastes and rinses, products from Opalescence don’t just target the extrinsic stains on the surface of your teeth. The active whitening ingredients safely penetrate the enamel of your teeth to remove intrinsic stains and discoloration, brightening your smile from the inside.

Over-the-counter whitening products can’t match the results you’ll see with Opalescence. Get complete coverage with trays that whiten all your teeth and won’t damage the soft tissue of your mouth. Best of all, you can put sensitivity worries to the side with products that strengthen your enamel instead of compromising it.

 

The Opalescence Process

The Opalescence teeth whitening system applies whitening compounds to the visible surfaces of your teeth on form-fitting trays. Their solutions are customized to fit your needs and availability, whether you choose to wear the trays for as little as 30 minutes or for an extended overnight whitening.

You’ll start to notice the whitening benefits of Opalescence products after just one use. After 5-10 days of regular application, you’ll enjoy a noticeably whiter smile with none of the sensitivity or coverage issues that come with over-the-counter whitening strips.

In addition to treating discoloration, Opalescence whitening gels contain potassium nitrate and fluoride to help reduce cavities, minimize sensitivity, increase enamel hardness, and improve the overall health of your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does teeth whitening last?

Lasting benefits are a key advantage to the Opalescence teeth whitening system. By clearing away deeply-set stains beneath the enamel of your teeth, you’ll achieve whitening results that can undo years of natural discoloration. Because Opalescence products are designed to strengthen and enhance the health of your enamel, you’ll also be better prepared to protect your bright smile.

Will Opalescence products weaken my teeth or increase sensitivity?

The teeth whitening systems from Opalescence are infused with potassium nitrate and fluoride to enhance the strength of your enamel and protect your teeth from future stains. While sensitivity is a common side effect of whitening procedures, Opalescence systems come in different concentrations of whitening agents to balance comfort and results. 

Your dentist will ensure that you receive the appropriate Opalescence product to suit the health of your teeth and prevent any lasting increase in teeth sensitivity.

Will Opalescence products whiten crowns and veneers?

The Opalescence whitening system is designed to whiten natural teeth structure only  —  it will not have the same effect on porcelain or other materials. If you’re interested in removing stains from your restorations, talk to your dentist about the options available to you.

Is the Opalescence whitening system less effective than processes which use whitening lights or lasers?

No! Current research shows that “light activation” from whitening lights or lasers offers no additional benefit to the active whitening ingredients you’ll find in Opalescence products.
