The Opalescence™ treatment contains two syringes. The first syringe contains 38 % hydrogen peroxide which is the active ingredient for tooth-whitening. The second syringe contains both potassium nitrate (PF) and fluoride. These help strengthen the tooth’s enamel, reducing sensitivity and protecting against cavities forming. When mixed together, this gel produces a very distinct red color so your dentist will accurately place and fully remove the gel.
Opalescence™ is proven safe and effective and in most cases only requires one visit to your dentist to complete the treatment. If you have more stubborn stains or discolorations, additional treatments may be required.
At Smile On Dentistry – Centreville, we have many teeth whitening options so ask your dentist if Opalescence™ is the right option for you. Call us today at (703) 543-8112 to schedule a consultation.
