At-Home Teeth Whitening Process

A woman brushing her teethAs a superior method to over-the-counter whitening treatments, Opalescence Go is simple and fast, and it requires no impressions.

When receiving your kit, you’ll remove them from the package and center the tray on the arch of your mouth. Then, you’ll either suck down or swallow to hold the tray in place. You’ll need to remove the outer tray and either suck down or swallow again. If the gel is 10% strength, you’ll wear your tray for 30-60 minutes, but if it’s 15%, you’ll only wear for 15-20 minutes. Once you remove your tray, be sure to brush your teeth, being careful not to swallow any of the remaining gel.

In just a few days, you’ll begin to notice a significant difference in the brightness of your smile!
