At Perfect Smiles California, we want to help each patient create their best smile. For patients who would like a whiter smile, Dr. Garate is proud to offer Ultradent’s Opalescence® Take-Home Whitening Kits as well as an in-office Opalescence® teeth whitening treatment to our orally healthy patients.
How Does Opalescence® Teeth Whitening Work?
If you’re an ideal candidate for Ultradent’s Opalescence® Take-Home Whitening, Dr. Garate can create customized trays for you to ensure an even application of whitening gel.
Opalescence® whitening gel works through its active ingredient, carbamide peroxide, which contains a 1:3 ratio of hydrogen peroxide. Carbamide peroxide breaks down to hydrogen peroxide, the actual bleaching agent that eliminates stains from your teeth.
Opalescence® whitening gel is available in multiple concentrations, ranging from 10%, 15%, 20%, and 35%. All concentrations will achieve the same brilliant results over time, but Dr. Garate will recommend the best fit for you based on your goals and particular oral environment.
Is Opalescence® Teeth Whitening Right For Me?
Teeth whitening is generally safe, and most people tolerate it well. If you have intact teeth, good oral health, and are not pregnant, teeth whitening may be a great option for you.
Take-home whitening is convenient, allowing you to whiten your smile at home at your leisure. With your custom trays, you can maintain your results for years to come. We are happy to order refills of whitening gel for you at any time.
If you'd rather whiten your teeth in our office, ask Dr. Garate about adding a teeth whitening treatment to your regular dental checkup appointment.
