Almost everyone would enjoy having a beautiful smile, which probably explains why teeth whitening has become so popular over the past few years. Whitening your teeth is, after all, one of the easiest and least expensive ways to improve the appearance of your smile. If you’re tempted to try one of the relatively inexpensive, over-the-counter whitening products, we suggest that you talk to Dr. Reddy before you do. Although some OTC products do offer limited results, they’re never as effective as professional teeth whitening services that you can receive here in our Hutto, TX, office.
An Introduction to the Opalescence® Teeth Whitening System
Dr. Reddy is pleased to offer our patients what we believe to be one of the most effective teeth whitening products available today: Opalescence®. We offer two types of whitening systems – one that is completed here in our office, and another that patients can take home and perform themselves. Both products feature Opalescence® whitening agents, which produce amazing results! What follows is a little more information about both the in-office and take-home whitening systems.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
For patients who prefer to have their teeth whitened here in our office, we offer Opalescence® Boost. This advanced system utilizes Opalescence® tooth whitening gel that is chemically activated, which means that Dr. Reddy doesn’t have to use any type of light to activate the gel. You’ll see dramatic results in less than an hour!
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
For people who prefer to whiten their own teeth at home, we offer Opalescence® take-home whitening gel. The formula is available in four different strengths and three flavors. You can choose how you whiten your teeth – whether you use it for 15 minutes a day or even overnight.
Teeth Whitening Precautions
While it’s true that our Opalescence® products dramatically whiten our patients’ teeth, it’s important to remember that teeth whitening may not be the best choice for everyone. If you have sensitive teeth, you may find that whitening products make your teeth even more sensitive, although that is usually only a temporary side effect. Whitening products won’t work on dental restorations such as fillings and crowns, etc. And whitening products are not intended for children.
