At-Home Teeth Whitening Meets At-Home Teeth Straightening
For use with custom orthodontic aligners, the carbamide peroxide whitening gel in Opalescence PF Whitening for Aligners whitens teeth by chemically removing discoloration deep in the enamel and dentin—no LED teeth whitening light required.

Create an At-Home Teeth Whitening Kit for Your Patients
While each Opalescence teeth whitening kit is effective as a stand-alone teeth whitening treatment, many patients benefit from using a combination of products to meet their needs. Because each Opalescence teeth whitening product works in combination with the others, it is easy to create a customized teeth whitening kit for any patient to take home. For example, while your patients whiten and straighten their teeth using Opalescence PF Whitening for Aligners, they can also brush their teeth with Opalescence™ Whitening Toothpaste to enhance and maintain their bright new smile.
The names Opalescence teeth whitening 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 whitening innovation is conceived to the time it’s created and packaged for shipping. We have met the strictest standards, and our facility is FDA registered and ISO 13485 certified. All of this ensures every product performs exactly as it’s supposed to for you and for your patients.
Opalescence teeth whitening 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. Because delivery times vary depending on the location of each particular dental office, Opalescence whitening products are formulated with transit time in mind. Although shelf life is ultimately dependent on how each product is stored, our teeth whiteners will remain stable even after being shipped across the country1.
Formulated with High Water Content
Many whitening products on the market dehydrate teeth, resulting in uncomfortable sensitivity for patients. Opalescence PF for Alginers teeth whitening gel contains high water content to help prevent teeth dehydration. This high water content also helps to reduce shade relapse, maximizing patient satisfaction.
Sweetened with Xylitol
Opalescence PF Whitening for Aligners is sweetened with xylitol which may reduce the risk of tooth decay.
Perfectly Balanced pH
Because teeth 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 saliva. When patients whiten using products that contain carbamide peroxide, like Opalescence PF Whitening for Aligners, the pH level of the mouth rises to a neutral level (between 7 and 8)2.
Made in the USA from Globally Sourced Materials
Opalescence teeth whitening gels, trays, syringes, and toothpastes are manufactured at Ultradent’s facility in Utah from globally sourced materials. By purchasing products manufactured in the USA, you are supporting our nation’s economy and helping to provide jobs to hundreds of Americans who take pride in what they do.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does tooth whitening work?
Opalescence whitening gels contain an active whitening ingredient, either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. Peroxide gels break down into water, oxygen, and reactive oxygen molecules. These reactive oxygen molecules treat both the enamel and the dentin, oxidizing the bonds of discolored stain molecules. By changing the stained molecules, the tooth becomes lighter.
Reactive oxygen molecules permeate the entire tooth, so there is no need for the whitening agent to be in contact with every surface of the tooth for the entire tooth to be whitened.
Will tooth whitening affect bond strength?
Even though whitening agents release a great amount of oxygen into the tooth, existing bonds are not weakened.3,4
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.5,6
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 tooth whitening cause sensitivity?Tooth sensitivity can occur as a result of whitening. If sensitivity occurs, it is transient and disappears after the completion of whitening treatments. If desensitizing treatments are desired, we recommend the use of UltraEZ™ desensitizing gel or Enamelast™ fluoride varnish. Opalescence™ Whitening Toothpaste Sensitivity Formula can also be used to help to prevent or lessen sensitivity if it occurs.
