By: Our Team

8/5/2022

Fewer things can boost your confidence the way a beautiful, bright smile can. If your teeth have become dull or stained over time, let us help you restore the stunning smile you deserve with professional teeth whitening. At The Dentist of Allen, our talented team is proud to help patients transform their look with a full range of Opalescence® teeth whitening solutions, including in-office and at-home options to help meet the unique needs of each person. In this blog, we’ll discuss how teeth whitening with Opalescence works, what options you have for treatment, and how long you can expect your beautiful new smile to last.

Why are my teeth so yellow?

There are quite a few reasons why you may be noticing dullness, yellowing, or staining of your teeth. Some of the most common factors contributing to tooth discoloration include:

  • Staining foods and beverages (coffee, iced tea, red wine, etc.)
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Smoking
  • Chewing tobacco
  • Oral health problems

What’s the best way to whiten my teeth?

While there are several over-the-counter teeth whitening products available today, many are ineffective. Some of these products can actually be damaging to the teeth and cause increased sensitivity. Without a doubt, professional teeth whitening is one of the safest, most effective, and longest-lasting ways to get a brighter, more beautiful smile. Because everyone’s needs and lifestyles are different, we offer both in-office and at-home professional teeth whitening treatments with Opalescence. Unlike many other teeth whitening treatments, Opalescence contains a specialized potassium fluoride formula that works to whiten and strengthen your teeth simultaneously, making it a fantastic option for virtually any patient.

Which teeth whitening treatment should I get?

During your initial consultation for professional teeth whitening in Allen, TX, a member of our team will evaluate your smile, discuss your concerns and goals, and explain all of your available options in detail to help you decide which one may be the most fitting treatment plan for you. At The Dentist of Allen, we offer the following popular and effective tooth whitening solutions:

  • Opalescence PF: an at-home whitening kit that includes custom-fitted trays that can be worn anywhere from 30 minutes to eight hours at a time
  • Opalescence Go: another at-home teeth whitening option that includes pre-filled trays that are worn for up to 90 minutes per day
  • Opalescence Boost: an in-office whitening treatment that can be completed in under one hour using a 40% hydrogen peroxide formula

How long does Opalescence teeth whitening last?

Generally speaking, patients can expect to enjoy a whiter, brighter smile for many years or even decades following professional teeth whitening with Opalescence. To maintain your results for as long as possible, use the following helpful tips:

  • Brush and floss twice daily
  • Attend twice-yearly in-office dental cleanings
  • Do not smoke
  • Avoid harsh or staining foods and beverages
