About Teeth Whitening
At St. Barnabas, we are proud to offer a wide array of dental care services, including routine dental care, pediatric dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and more services like teeth whitening. Even with regular brushing and flossing, teeth can lose their luster and become stained because of various factors, including:
- Smoking cigarettes
- Drinking dark beverages like coffee, soda, and red wine
The good news is almost anyone can improve the appearance of their smile by whitening their teeth. Most teeth whiteners contain some type of peroxide as the active ingredient to break down discolored molecules. Occasionally, some patients will experience tooth sensitivity after whitening, but it is temporary and does not mean that you have damaged or weakened your teeth.
Opalescence Teeth Whitening Treatment
Opalescence is a professional whitening treatment only available from dentists and proven effective at providing dramatic, long-lasting teeth-whitening results. It has received many awards in the dental industry for its patented concentration of potassium nitrate and fluoride, which is designed to strengthen enamel and prevent cavities. Its unique formula also contains ingredients to decrease sensitivity and make your whitening experience as comfortable as possible.
This option comes in the form of a whitening gel that you wear in custom-made trays for a length of time determined by the dentist, typically a week to 10 days. Opalescence is effective at treating all types of discoloration and works better than over-the-counter whitening treatments, like whitening strips that only lighten teeth and don’t strengthen them or prevent cavities.
