Indications for Use

Opalescence Go

Opalescence is recommended for whitening discolored teeth prior to placement of composite, veneers, and/or crowns. It is effective in removing some or all internal tooth discolorations due to congenital, systemic, pharmacologic, traumatic, etc., factors as well as aging. It is even successful at resolving staining from fluorosis and tetracycline.6,7

Technical Details

UltraFit™ Tray

The all-new UltraFit is made of a unique, highly adaptable material that comfortably conforms to any patient’s arches. The tray material responds to the internal body temperature of the patient and begins to mold around the occlusal surfaces and into the interproximal spaces. The UltraFit tray also provides superior coverage buccal to lingual and ensures that the maximum amount of whitening gel remains on the teeth during whitening.

Convenient Ready-To-Go Whitening

For the patient who demands the convenience of a whitening treatment that can be performed anywhere, Opalescence Go is the answer. With no need for custom trays or extra accessories, Opalescence Go can easily be carried in a pocket or bag, and its discreet tray material makes it possible to whiten with Opalescence Go just about anywhere.​

Patented Sticky, Viscous Gel

It’s important that patients be comfortable while they whiten so they’ll be consistent with their treatments. With Opalescence, your patients don’t have to worry about gel ending up where it’s not supposed to go. Our original, patented formula is sticky and viscous, so it stays where it’s placed, preventing the gel from migrating during treatment and helping keep the custom tray in place.

Superior Stability

Opalescence products are among the most stable whitening products in the industry, each maintaining virtually all of its effectiveness over the course of its shelf life.8,9 Because delivery times vary depending on the location of each particular dental office, Opalescence products are formulated with transit time in mind, so they remain stable even after being shipped across the country. In fact, stability studies performed on Opalescence tooth whitening gels have shown that the peroxide potency at the end of the product’s shelf life is consistently 90% or greater.

Formulated with 20% Water

Many whitening products on the market dehydrate teeth, resulting in uncomfortable sensitivity for patients. Opalescence Go is made up of 20% water to keep the teeth hydrated during the whitening process. This high water content, combined with optimum levels of potassium nitrate and fluoride, reduce the likelihood of residual sensitivity for your patients.

Gluten Free and Kosher Certified

Opalescence products are gluten free and kosher certified, so they fit in with the lifestyles and beliefs of patients from any background.

Sweetened with Xylitol

Every Opalescence product is sweetened with xylitol, a noncariogenic sweetener, to promote increased oral health.

Perfectly Balanced pH

Because tooth-whitening gel can be in the mouth for several hours at a time, it’s important to use a product with a pH that closely matches the natural pH of a patient’s mouth. When the mouth has a lower pH (between 5.5 and 6.5), bacteria can begin to flourish. Carbamide peroxide releases a byproduct called urea, which raises the pH level of the mouth to a neutral level (between 7 and 8).10 The active whitening agent in Opalescence Go is hydrogen peroxide, but to help maintain neutral pH levels, it also includes added carbamide peroxide.

Sold Directly to Licensed Dental Professionals Only

Opalescence is committed to supporting the dental community. Because tooth whitening is most successful when supervised by a dentist, Opalescence is sold directly to licensed dental professionals only. It’s important for dentists to ensure their patients understand the whitening procedure, have realistic expectations of the outcome, and have an enjoyable experience so they are pleased with the final result.

Easily Combined with Other Opalescence Products for Customized Treatments

While each Opalescence product is effective in a stand-alone whitening regimen, many patients prefer to use a combination of treatments or products to meet their needs. Because every Opalescence product works in combination with the others, it’s easy to create a custom regimen for any patient.

Unmatched Quality

The names Opalescence and Ultradent are synonymous with quality. All of our research and development is done in-house. So is our manufacturing and quality control. This allows us to guide and oversee the entire process—from the time an Opalescence innovation is conceived to the time it’s created and packaged for shipping. We have met the strictest standards, and our facility is ISO 9001 certified. All of this ensures every product performs exactly as it’s supposed to for you and for your patients.

Made in the USA

Opalescence gels and syringes are manufactured at Ultradent’s facility in Utah. By purchasing products manufactured in the USA, you’re supporting our nation’s economy, and you’re helping to provide jobs for hundreds of Americans who take pride in what they do. Buying from a USA company like Ultradent also means you’ll get fresh formulations right from our own facility—not a product that may have been held up or delayed by a third-party.

FAQs

  • How does bleaching work?

    The whitening process is possible due to the ability of the carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide to freely pass through enamel and dentin and to permeate to all parts of the tooth.11 These peroxides break down into oxygen radicals, which migrate between the enamel prisms, breaking down any colored molecules that result in tooth discoloration. The structure of the tooth is not altered; the internal tooth color is simply made lighter.

    Whitening agents break down into tiny molecules and move in all directions, so even if the entire tooth is not covered with gel, the entire tooth is whitened.12

    Numerous studies have proven the effectiveness of peroxides in whitening teeth. Enamel, dentin, existing fillings, and bonding materials are not harmed by the whitening materials.
  • Will whitening affect bond strength?

    Even though whitening agents release a great amount of oxygen into the tooth, existing bonds are not weakened.13,14

    If whitening before bonding, allow a period of 7–10 days after whitening. The high concentration of oxygen in the tooth could significantly and adversely affect polymerization of the resins.15,16
  • How long do whitening results last?

    Whitening results are very stable, but depending on the patient’s nutrition and lifestyle habits, the procedure may need to be redone periodically. Due to the safety of the whitening agents, this should not concern the dentist or patient.
  • Will whitening cause tooth sensitivity?

    Tooth sensitivity is a relatively common side effect of whitening. If sensitivity occurs, it is transient and disappears after the completion of the whitening procedure. However, most Opalescence products include PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride) desensitizing agents for additional comfort. Findings have confirmed that the potassium nitrate and fluoride actually help to reduce cavities, minimize sensitivity, increase enamel hardness, and improve the overall health of the teeth.1-5 Research has shown that just as hydrogen peroxide penetrates through the enamel and dentin to the pulp, so does potassium nitrate. Potassium nitrate acts more like an analgesic or anesthetic by keeping the nerve from repolarizing after it has depolarized in the pain cycle.17 Fluoride acts primarily as a tubule blocker, plugging the holes and slowing down the fluid flow that causes the sensitivity.
  • Will bleaching weaken the tooth’s enamel?

    Opalescence tooth whitening gel contains 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.1-5
