There’s no doubt about it: having an attractive smile makes you feel better about yourself and improve the quality of your life. And one of the easiest and least expensive ways of improving your smile is with teeth whitening. Dr. Russell understands how important his Austin, TX, patients’ smiles are, which is why he offers one of the most effective whitening products available: the Opalescence® teeth whitening system.
An Introduction to Opalescence®
Patients are thrilled with the dramatic results of whitening teeth with the Opalescence® system. For the convenience of our patients, we offer an at-home bleaching kit that allows patients to whiten their own teeth at any time in the privacy of their own homes.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Patients who prefer to whiten their own teeth at home will see incredible results with the Opalescence® whitening gel. You choose how long to leave the product on – from 15 minutes a day or even overnight. This product works remarkably well and is much more effective than over-the-counter whitening products.
Cautions About Whitening Your Teeth
As much as whitening improves the appearance of your smile, Dr. Russell would like to remind his patients that it may not be the right choice for everyone. If you have very sensitive teeth, for example, you may find that the whitening process increases that sensitivity for a short period of time. Whitening agents don’t work on dental restorations such as fillings, crowns and bridges. And young children should not have their teeth whitened.
