Patented Sticky, Viscous Gel
With Opalescence, 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. This means the whitening treatment is as comfortable as possible, which helps in patient compliance.
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.3,4
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.4
Formulated With 20% Water
Many whitening products on the market dehydrate teeth, resulting in uncomfortable sensitivity for patients. Opalescence 10% is made up of 20% water to keep the teeth hydrated during the whitening process. This high water content reduces the likelihood of residual sensitivity for the patient.
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
Opalescence 10% 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. When patients whiten using products that contain carbamide peroxide, like Opalescence 10%, a byproduct called urea is released. Urea, which also occurs naturally in saliva, raises the pH level of the mouth to a neutral level (between 7 and 8).5 So, not only can whitening improve the esthetic appearance of your patients’ smiles, it can also provide numerous health benefits for your patients as well.
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.
To be effective, a whitening treatment has to be convenient to use, encouraging patient compliance. With its efficient syringe delivery, Opalescence 10% is extremely easy to use.
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.
