What causes tooth discoloration?
Many factors make teeth lose their luster. Genetics is one factor; some people just have whiter teeth than others.
Other factors include cigarettes, dark foods and beverages (including coffee, soda, tea, and red wine), age, medications (such as tetracycline), and tooth trauma.
How does teeth whitening work?
The active ingredient in most teeth whiteners is some form of peroxide. Oxygen molecules from the peroxide penetrate the tooth and break down discolored molecules.
Because the oxygen molecules spread throughout the entire tooth, it is not necessary for the whitening gel to touch every part of the tooth for the entire tooth to be white.
Will whitening cause tooth sensitivity?
Some people experience sensitivity while whitening, but many do not. Sensitivity does not mean damage has been caused to your teeth. It is temporary and typically disappears within a few days.
Opalescence also contains unique ingredients designed to decrease sensitivity and make your whitening experience as comfortable as possible. Your dentist can provide you with additional desensitizing treatments if you experience lingering discomfort.
Will whitening weaken my teeth?
No! Whitening will not weaken your teeth. Opalescence whitening gel includes PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride). Potassium nitrate has been shown to help reduce sensitivity. Fluoride has been shown to help reduce caries and strengthen enamel. Together they help to improve the overall health of the teeth. 2,3,4,5,6
