Sometimes, patients want to be able to whiten their teeth at home rather than in the dental office. However, many over-the-counter tooth whitening options are hard on tooth enamel. Additionally, some do not perform well or whiten teeth evenly.
The alternative to buying subpar or damaging whitening systems is working with a cosmetic dentist in Baton Rouge to find a better, safer product. Drs. Juban and Cowen often recommend Opalescence, a dental grade at-home whitening system that uses carbamide peroxide only available through certain providers.
To ensure even distribution of the whitening solution, we will first take dental impressions of the teeth. The impressions are then used to create custom-fitted bleaching trays. At home, patients place Opalescence gel into the trays and then wear them as prescribed. The bleaching changes the appearance of the tooth enamel without destroying its integrity. Patients who opt for at-home bleaching can typically achieve their desired results in just a few weeks.
Compared to the cost of constantly purchasing low-quality whitening products, Opalescence is an affordable, cost-effective way to maintain a whiter smile for months. It can be the perfect solution for any adult desiring a brighter, whiter, more dazzling smile.
Tooth whitening systems like Opalescence may not be right for every patient. For instance, intrinsic stains – which affect the innermost layers of the teeth – do not respond to bleaching. In these cases, other cosmetic and restorative treatments such as porcelain veneers, porcelain inlays and onlays, or dental crowns may be more suitable.
