FAQs

  • How does bleaching work?

    ​Tooth whitening is a chemical process. The peroxide in the whitening agent breaks down into tiny molecules that move inside the tooth structure, where they break down any molecules that cause discoloration. Because of this process, the entire tooth is lightened, even if the entire tooth is not covered with bleach. However, the structure of the tooth is not altered; the internal tooth color is simply lightened. Enamel, dentin, and current fillings and cements are not affected or harmed by the peroxide.​
  • How long does the bleaching last?

    ​Bleaching results are very stable. However, depending on your nutrition and lifestyle habits, bleaching may need to be re-done periodically. Due to the safety of the bleaching agents, this should not cause any concerns.
  • Will bleaching cause problems by weakening my teeth?

    ​Findings have confirmed that whitening with Opalescence PF products actually helps to reduce cavities, minimize sensitivity, increase microenamel hardness, and improve the overall health of your teeth.
