If you are interested in having your teeth whitened, or want to speak with Dr. Kruckman about your whitening options, we encourage you to contact our dentist’s office today.

How does deep bleaching work?

Opalescence deep bleaching system works by restoring and enhancing your teeth’s ability to absorb precious oxygen. Opalescence deep bleaching gel provides oxygen directly to the tooth and encourages the tooth to absorb and dissolve the excess oxygen, working to remedy and resolve signs of staining. Not only is this method effective, it is also completely safe for use. In addition, this teeth whitening procedure has proven to be painless in the majority of cases. Pain, however, is always dependent on the patient’s individual sensitivity, but, research and clinical testing has shown that the Opalescence bleaching gel produces little to no sensitivity. Testing has also shown that patients who normally feel sensitivity with bleaching, typically feel no more than 10% of the original level of discomfort with bleaching when using Opalescence.  

When you contact Dr. Kruckman for your deep bleaching treatment, you can expect to have several molds made of your teeth. With these molds, Dr. Kruckman can then create your own unique set of ultra-comfortable bleaching trays to be worn with the Opalescence bleaching gel. Once you have your trays, you will be asked to wear them for 30 minutes a day while at home.  The trays are so comfortable that you may even forget that they are in your mouth. By wearing the trays you will effectively expose your teeth to the specialty compound that makes your teeth the whiter, brighter, better teeth, you’ve always hoped for.

How white and how long?

Unlike other common bleaching methods, Oplaescence bleaching gel is a completely permanent option and only requires occasional at home maintenance. As for how white your teeth will get, deep bleaching with the Oplaescence gel dramatically whitens teeth. The process has been known to lighten stained teeth 16 shades or more. Although it is important to note that every set of teeth is different and every patient is different. In general, though, theOpalescence teeth whitening system is able to noticeably whiten teeth without making them look unnatural. The end result with this product is never ultra-white, fake looking teeth, but rather natural, beautiful and bright looking smiles.
