Tooth Discoloration

Stains on teeth are generally classified as being extrinsic or intrinsic. Extrinsic stains, also referred to as external stains, are visible on the outermost layer of your teeth. These discolorations are caused by coffee, tobacco products, certain medications, tea, or wine and may not fully react to whitening toothpaste or mouth rinses. Intrinsic, also known as inner stains, are on the hard layer of your teeth beneath the enamel, the tooth’s dentin. Intrinsic stains can only be removed through professional whitening practices and products. 

Teeth Whitening with Opalescence

Our practice uses Opalescence and Opalescence Go whitening systems, which we believe to be the best, safest, and most effective choice for your teeth and tooth enamel. This system brightens the color of your teeth by using hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide to break down discolored molecules that have developed on the teeth.

Teeth whitening with Opalescence greatly reduces the discoloration of enamel and dentin with convenient, customized pre-filled take-home trays. We also offer Opalescence Go as an option, which does not require impressions or molds. It is ready to use straight out of the box with an UltraFit tray that conforms to any smile, and is available in varying levels of strength. Both options are used in the comfort of your own home over the course of 5-10 days.

Sensitivity to cold may be experienced by some patients during or after the procedure. Rest assured, this is temporary and will go away within 1-3 days following treatment.

Aftercare

Teeth whitening is not permanent, but it can last anywhere from a few months to a few years with proper care. We recommend using Opalescence brand toothbrushes and toothpaste that are specially formulated with whitening and fluoride components. Our team will provide you with a comprehensive list of options during your visit.
