Now is the perfect time to look and feel better about yourself with a whiter, healthier, and more confident smile.  Let's face it — one of the first things you notice about people is their smile. When you meet someone with a bright, natural smile, it catches your attention.  However, over time, nature's aging process and your lifestyle (smoking or drinking coffee, tea, or wine) can stain or make your teeth lackluster.

To get your smile back to looking its best, you should choose a whitening method that:

• Achieves The longest-lasting results
• Gives you the most naturally brilliant and uniform look
• Is clinically proven to be safe and effective
• Uses a low concentration of active ingredient (Hydrogen peroxide)

No other professional teeth whitening system can help you achieve a bright smile, like BriteSmile's Professional Teeth Whitening System.

At Home: Opalesence

How does it work?

Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth that will allow for custom trays to be made for your bleaching procedure. The Opalescence gel is placed in thin, comfortable trays and fitted over your teeth. As you whiten your teeth, carbamide peroxide is broken down and oxygen enters the enamel and dentin. This bleaches out the discolored areas. The structure of the tooth is not changed. The color of the tooth is simply made lighter.

Is It Safe?

Whitening your teeth has been proven safe in clinical studies over a period of many years. The primary ingredient in Opalescence is carbamide peroxide, which has been safely used to brighten the smiles of millions of people worldwide.

When will I see results?

Results are often seen after one night. Optimum natural whiteness usually occurs when the process is continued for a week to 10 days. We will go over what you can expect for your individual situation.

How do I keep my smile white?

After you have the white smile you’ve long desired, it’s important to keep it that way. Practice good oral hygiene and always remember to brush after consuming staining food or beverages. Opalescence Whitening toothpaste is a wonderful product for maintaining your bright smile. It not only whitens, it offers a higher fluoride uptake than any other toothpaste. It is available through our office!
