  • Since whiter, brighter teeth became such a popular and attractive trait there has been a tremendous influx of products onto the market that claims to be able to lighten the color of our teeth. The success with which they work varies tremendously, leaving many patients forced to continue their use to maintain their results or entirely disappointed with the outcome of their efforts. Fortunately, there are also some highly successful professional alternatives to these over these over-the-counter treatments. One of the most popular is known as Opalescence Go.

    What is Opalescence Go?

    Opalescence Go whitening trays are a safe, effective teeth whitening solution that is proven to deliver outstanding results time after time. The trays themselves are generic, meaning that no custom designing is required, and this helps to make Opalescence Go very affordable. After the initial application by our experienced cosmetic dentistry team, the pre-filled, disposable trays can then be worn at home at times convenient to you. Each wearing session should last between 15 and 60 minutes, and people find the process so unobtrusive that they simply sit back, relax and read, take a bath or watch tv while the Opalescence whitening gel works its magic.

    How does Opalescence Go work?

    Like virtually all whitening treatments, Opalescence Go uses a bleaching agent to break down the molecules that create discoloration and staining. Opalescence uses hydrogen peroxide, a chemical which is extremely effective at breaking down discolored molecules in teeth, dispersing them and causing teeth to lighten and stains to fade away. In Opalescence Go whitening trays, there are two different strengths of hydrogen peroxide available – 10% and 15%. If you opt for the 10% variety, you can expect to need to use your trays for between 30 and 60 minutes each day until you achieve your final result, which is usually a maximum of 10 days. However, if you opt for the 15% variety, you will need to use the trays for between just 15-20 minutes each day. This means that there really is an option that fits with every lifestyle.

    Is Opalescence Go safe?

    One of the key concerns of any patient undergoing teeth whitening is the safety of the procedure. The process is known to cause irritation to the gum tissue, sensitivity, and other problems if not performed correctly. Fortunately, Opalescence Go has been proven to be extremely safe. This is because each try is prefilled with the safe, effective gel in such a way that it will not leak out onto surrounding gum tissue and trigger problems.

    How effective is Opalescence Go?

    Opalescence Go is extremely effective thanks to the consistent application of the gel, and the strength of the bleaching agent used. Most patients begin to notice an improvement in the color of their smile after just one treatment, with full results being achieved in less than 10 sessions of wearing the trays.
