Whitening occurs as oxygen molecules from the whitening agent spread throughout the tooth and react with the discolored molecules in your teeth. This means that the entire tooth is whitened, even if the whitening gel isn’t in contact with every part of the enamel. This safe, non-invasive, and effective whitening method is what has made Opalescence whitening the global leader in teeth whitening and trusted by dentists and patients alike.
Tooth Bleaching: Keeping Teeth White
Whether you use an at-home tooth-whitening system, or have your teeth bleached by a dentist, you can help maintain the results by brushing, flossing, and rinsing daily. Also, avoid acidic and tannin-rich foods and beverages such as:
Black teas and coffee
White and red wine
Carbonated beverages (dark and light-colored sodas)
Berries and other strongly-colored foods
Sauces (soy, tomato, curries)
