Teeth whitening

At Palo Alto Dental Center we do bleaching by making custom trays for our patients. We then instruct our patients on how to use the opalescence (whitening) gel in these thin comfortable trays. The opalescence tooth whitening system has been proven safe in many clinical studies over the past ten years. Opalescence gel also holds the American Dental Associations Seal of Approval. It has proven very effective on reversing the effects of aging, coffee, tobacco and other stains. It even has some effect on tetracyline and fluorosis staining. The duration of the results depends largely on each individual and may be permanent.
