Teeth Whitening Q & A

by Benjamin J. Crowley, DDS

What is Opalescence?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Crowley will discuss options for whitening your teeth. Depending on the kinds of stains his examination reveals, Dr. Crowley can explain the science behind extrinsic and intrinsic discolorations and recommend an effective tooth whitening system called Opalescence. The gel used during the in-office treatment is specially formulated to strengthen tooth enamel and even prevent cavities while breaking down and removing stains at the same time.

How does tooth whitening work?

The tooth whitening you receive at a dentist’s office is much more efficient than whitening toothpaste, oral rinses, and whitening strips available at your local drugstore. Opalescence gel dispensed by Dr. Crowley contains chemicals that work directly on the discolored tooth enamel. A cheek retractor will be placed in your mouth as the treatment begins. The whitening gel is activated by a syringe then carefully applied to each tooth. The gel must sit on the teeth for a period of time to be effective. Unlike other teeth whitening treatments, no bright light is used during the whitening process with Opalescence. There is a slight risk of sensitivity during the Opalescence treatment, but no permanent damage to your gums or teeth. Millions of patients experience dazzling results from Opalescence tooth whitening.

How long does this process take? How long before I see results?

In-office teeth whitening can typically be completed in less than an hour. Opalescence Boost is a highly concentrated whitening formula that can only be administered in the dentist’s office. Most patients see incredible results after only one appointment. It is important to note that each patient whitens differently, depending on age and the extent of stains and discolorations. Patients with deeper stains may require a longer whitening process or follow-up appointment. If you’re interested in teeth whitening, call or schedule an appointment online with Dr. Crowley. The practice is currently welcoming new patients and takes pride in helping patients achieve the smile of their dreams.
