After the Braces, Whiten the Smile

After the braces, whiten the smile with Opalescence professional teeth whitening trays. There are many contributing factors that lead to discolored teeth: drinking tea or coffee, eating berries, smoking, certain medications and the natural aging process.

There are commercial ‘teeth whitening’ toothpastes available and some of these may help to make your teeth one or two shades lighter, but many of these products have an abrasive nature that can actually wear away the enamel on your teeth.

Fortunately, there are now professional teeth whitening products and procedures that can effectively restore your smile from dull, discolored/stained to brighter and whiter.

Beach Braces has helped many patients who have been looking for a professional teeth-whitening procedure that reverses the effects of aging, food, drink and tobacco discoloration.

Professional Teeth Whitening with Dr. Panucci

When you decide to whiten your teeth it’s important to get the best professional teeth whitening care and product advice. Beach Braces recommends Opalescence teeth whitening gel.

Opalescence is only available from your dentist or orthodontic specialist and contains 15% hydrogen peroxide. It’s stronger than supermarket teeth whiteners; and, because of its prescription-strength formula, Opalescence offers noticeable results within seven to ten days.

Opalescence is a simple, fast, and great-tasting (mint, melon and peach flavors) way to start whitening or brightening your smile after orthodontics.

They are an affordable, professional teeth-whitening option, with a wear-time of just 15 minutes per day. If you feel discomfort or sensitivity during your teeth whitening procedure, Dr. Panucci recommends skipping 1 day between bleaching treatments.

Opalescence gel contain potassium nitrate and fluoride, which help to improve oral health by strengthening enamel, decreasing sensitivity, and offering increased cavity prevention.

If you are looking to reverse the negative effects of drinking coffee, eating certain foods, smoking, or you simply want to achieve that ‘Hollywood Smile,’ contact Dr. Panucci for your professional teeth-whitening consultation now. You will discover your own brighter, whiter smile within ten days!

How it WorksProfessional Teeth Whitening - Manhattan Beach

Before bleaching: Floss and brush before bleaching. The whitening gel is more effective with clean teeth. Make sure trays are clean and dry before applying the gel.

Applying the bleaching gel: Place a SMALL drop of whitening gel on the inner front surfaces of the tray. Only place on front 6-8 teeth as no one sees the back teeth or behind the teeth.

Inserting the bleaching trays: Seat the trays firmly against teeth. Wipe off excess gel from the gums with your finger or tissue, as it will cause irritation.

Wearing time: We recommend using trays for 30 minutes to 1 hour initially and increase the wearing time if there is no sensitivity. Trays can also be used 2 to 4 hours per day for 10 days or until desired results. If you experience sensitivity, bleach every other day.

After whitening: Remove tray and rinse off teeth and brush any remaining gel from teeth and gums.
