What is the Fastest Way to Brighten my Smile?

More than 37 million Americans used tooth whiteners in 2020. And with store shelves stocked with competing products, it’s understandable that confusion and exasperation may arise when attempting to choose between the innumerable options.

But why wrestle (physically and mentally) with strips, pastes, gels, and other faddish items that may not yield the results you desire? Instead, contact our expert dental team at Beacon Dental Health or visit one of our practices in New England, so we can help you easily, quickly, and brilliantly achieve the smile of your dreams.

What causes tooth staining?

We’d all like our teeth to be a little whiter. But the staining process can occur even if you’re committed to proper dental hygiene. Lifestyle factors, like consuming some of the world’s favorite beverages, including coffee, tea, wine, and soft drinks, cause inevitable discoloration. And intensely pigmented foods, like tomato sauces, berries, and curries, can impart their colors to your teeth. Tobacco products are also prominent tooth-stainers. And even some medications, such as tetracycline, can cause discoloration.

Consumables that are sugary and acidic are especially damaging. The sugars accelerate tooth decay, and the bacteria that feed on these sugars can erode enamel. Similarly, acids can strip away enamel, revealing the yellower dentin below. So to undo these effects and prevent future stains, contact us at Beacon Dental Health for a detailed consultation!

Get a dazzling smile with Opalescence

The Beacon Dental Health is excited to offer the unparalleled whitening prowess of Opalescence. The Opalescence whitening system is backed by over 30 years of dental science and proven results. It’s brightened more than 100 million smiles, and it’s sure to brighten yours, giving your teeth a brilliance that turns heads.

What you can expect when you make an appointment

After evaluating your oral health and discussing your whitening goals, our professional dental team will take an impression of your teeth to create your comfortable, custom-fitted Opalescence trays. Then, you simply fill these trays with the included syringe-style gel applicator and pop them onto your teeth in the comfort of your home.

The different concentrations offer various wear times, allowing you to achieve dramatic whitening results in just 15 to 30 minutes a day. Your new, brighter smile will begin to emerge within only a week or two.

The Opalescence advantage

The carbamide peroxide solution in Opalescence chemically removes discoloration from deep within the teeth. It’s formulated for the most effective viscosity and “stickiness” so the gel doesn’t migrate and the trays remain firmly in place.

The specially formulated solution also prevents dehydration. And it boasts the sensitivity-reducing effects of potassium nitrate and the teeth-strengthening qualities of fluoride.

Plus, it’s available in three pleasing flavors: mint, melon, and regular, so there’s an option sure to please even the pickiest of tastes while delivering clinically proven whitening results. And it’s vegan, gluten-free, and kosher, providing a safe, effective solution for one and all.

Contact us today for a more vibrant smile

There’s no point in bothering with store-bought products when Opalescence offers easy, effective, clinician-approved results. And all you have to do is sit and relax at home while this convenient, professional whitening system removes stains in as little as 15-30 minutes a day.
