Teeth Whitening in Sunnyvale
Brighten your teeth and rejuvenate your smile!
Whitening with Bleaching Tray
Dr. Au uses Opalescence® Professional Teeth Whitening Systems for professional whitening that is safe, fast and highly effective.
Why choose professional whitening with Opalescence?
Stains are classified as either extrinsic (surface stains) or intrinsic. Intrinsic stains live between the micro cracks in your enamel and in the layer underneath called dentin. Over-the-counter whitening products are generally only effective at removing the extrinsic stains on your teeth, and not always the stubborn ones.
Dr. Au can prescribe the whitening solution that will work best for your teeth, your schedule and your budget.
How does Teeth Whitening work?
Video – How Opalescence Works
Opalescence contains an active whitening ingredient that penetrates your enamel to get to the discolored molecules. Oxygen molecules from the whitening agents react with the discolored molecules in your teeth, breaking the bonds that hold them together. The oxygen molecules spread, whitening the entire tooth.
Dr. Au offers four levels of whitening with Opalescence:
In-Office with Opalescence Boost
Dr. Au can brighten your teeth several shades whiter in less than hour. Opalescence Boost is a chemically activated whitening treatment that doesn’t require a whitening light or laser, making it more comfortable and less likely to dry your teeth.
Opalescence Boost is applied with a gentle brush and an hour later you’ll see dramatic results!
Take Home Opalescence
Opalescence take-home whitening trays come in four different concentrations and three flavors. The higher the concentration the shorter the time needed to wear the trays. With Opalescence at 35% concentration, you can wear Opalescence for as little as 30 minutes per day. Dr. Au will help you choose which concentration will work best for your teeth and gums.
The bleaching trays are customized from an impression of your mouth, ensuring a tight fit and more effective treatment.
You’ll get results after the first treatment and after one week you should expect to see really noticeable results.
Opalescence Go comes in prefilled disposable trays, so it’s easy to take with you anywhere you go. Opalescence Go whitens your smile in just 5 to10 days with tray wear times from 15 to 60 minutes per day.
