Dr. Marino & Associates offers two premier teeth whitening options. Patients can choose from Opalescence Boost, an in-office procedure, or Opalescence Go, a professional-quality at-home whitening system.
Opalescence Boost is our in-office teeth whitening treatment that takes less than one hour. Our staff ensures your procedure is comfortable and delivers lasting results. Once the teeth whitening is completed, we send you home with a 10-pack of Opalescence teeth whitening trays for you to maintain whitening habits at home.
The at-home teeth whitening option we offer is called Opalescence Go, which uses teeth whitening trays with gel that you apply and insert into your mouth. Opalescence Go is considered professional-grade, and delivers similar results to an in-office teeth whitening. Best of all, you can get results using the treatment for less than 30 minutes a day for 5 to 10 days.
Some patients are wary of teeth whitening due to increased sensitivity. For some people, whitening does induce sensitivity. That’s why it’s important to talk with your dentist before undergoing a whitening treatment, and get the advice and recommendations you need based on your teeth and dental health.
There are a few steps you can take to help prevent sensitivity during the teeth whitening process. Using a soft-bristle toothbrush is a good first step, as well as using toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth. It also helps to steer clear of acidic beverages and foods from your diet when possible.
If you continue to experience sensitivity or any type of pain, talk with the trusted dentists at Dr. Marino & Associates. We are here to help you get the results you are seeking without any discomfort.
