Potassium nitrate and fluoride decrease sensitivity while strengthening enamel and preventing caries. Twenty percent water content prevents dehydration and shade relapse, making Opalescence one of the most reliable bleaching gels available. Vital teeth whitened with Opalescence remain lighter for years. A university study proves that the gel stays active for 8-10 hours during overnight bleaching, which means patients experience results quickly, increasing compliance. Opalescence is available in a variety of concentrations, formulations, flavors, and kit configurations to meet all your patients? whitening needs.
