Opalescence Whitening

Whitening in 7 to 10 days!

Our take-home whitening system (Opalescence) is by Ultradent.  It comes in three different strengths PF10%, PF15% and PF22%, they all are made with Potassium Nitrate and Fluoride.  It is safer and easer then ever to whiten you teeth at home.  In just 1 to 2 hours, twice a day for 7 to 10 days. 

We make custom trays to fit your teeth for the best and most comfortable fit possible.  It takes just two short visits.  The first visit is to take the impressions and the second visit is to deliver the custom trays and go over the instructions.  Crowns and composite fillings will not bleach.  Some additional restorations may need to be addressed if they are in the front of your mouth.

It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
