How Teeth Whitening Works
Teeth discolor naturally as enamel becomes worn down, revealing more of the darker-colored dentin layer below the enamel, but surface level stains caused by darkly colored or acidic foods can also make teeth appear discolored. Removing surface level stains is relatively easy, but deeper-set stains or those caused by aging, tetracycline medications, or genetically darker tooth coloring are all more difficult to remove. For issues like the later examples, porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding may be more effective. However, some whitening agents, like the Opalescence line, are able to whiten even deep-set stains that penetrate the enamel and exist between the enamel and dentin layers.
Opalescence teeth whitening offers effective whitening for even the most difficult stains. Our patented formula contains active whitening peroxide, but unlike many other whiteners, it also includes potassium nitrate and fluoride to reduce tooth sensitivity and strengthen enamel as your teeth whiten. Opalescence whitening products come in delicious peach, melon, and mint flavors.
