Updated November 21, 2016

Opalescence tooth bleaching is a reasonably priced and convenient solution for a whiter smile. According to the ADA, Opalescence tooth whitening products have been proven to make your teeth their whitest. Opalescence tooth whitening system is only available at a dentist office for at home use. The Opalescence Whitening System is safe, effective and comes customised with whitening trays that are create at the dentist office from an impression of your mouth and teeth.

Brush and floss teeth just before using the whitening get. Use the trays first without any gel to check the fit and comfort. Make sure that the bleaching trays are clean and dry before applying the whitening gel. Water reduces the effectiveness of the whitening gel and slows down the process.

Place small drops of tooth whitening gel half way to the centre front part of tray and do not spread the bleach around. The average treatment per tray requires approximately 0.5ml of whitening gel.

Place the whitening tray in the mouth over the teeth, making sure the tray is firmly against the teeth. Wipe any excess gel that seeps over the edge of the tray and onto your gums with a tissue.

Wear the trays for 30 minutes to 1 hour the first time and increase the wearing time if there is little or no tooth sensitivity. Remove the tray and rinse your teeth. Brush any remaining gel away. Clean and dry whitening trays after each use.
