Over time our teeth pick up stains from food and drinks such as coffee and red wine which dull and yellow the natural white colour of our teeth. Smokers are particularly prone to the yellowing of their once bright, healthy smile. So why not refresh your smile with a healthy teeth whitening treatment at Gipsy Lane Dental?

Opalescence take-home whitening gels are available from your dentist only. The sticky, viscous gel won't leak out of the tray onto your gums, and Opalescence gels include potassium nitrate and fluoride (PF). Findings have confirmed that the potassium nitrate and fluoride actually help to reduce cavities, minimize sensitivity, increase enamel hardness, and improve the overall health of your teeth
Powerful, professional-strength Opalescence take-home whitening gels are available at Gipsy Lane Dental. Opalescence take-home whitening gels can provide results after just one treatment, though you should expect to see noticeable results in about a week.
Opalescence take-home whitening gel is delivered via a customized whitening tray that your dentist will create from an impression of your mouth. This customization is part of why Opalescence take-home whitening gels are so effective.
Stains on teeth can be classified in one of two ways: extrinsic or intrinsic. Extrinsic stains appear on the surface of your teeth. Intrinsic stains live between the microcracks in your enamel and deep within your dentin (the layer of your tooth underneath your enamel). Whitening toothpastes and mouth rinses may be able to remove some of the extrinsic stains on your teeth. But only teeth whitening agents can remove the stubborn extrinsic stains and the unsightly intrinsic stains that cause your teeth to look discolored.
Opalescence gels contain an active whitening ingredient (either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide) that penetrates your enamel to get to 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. As a result, you are left with a brighter, whiter smile
