Teeth Whitening You Can Trust

The Beginning of Brighter Smiles

Jaleena was persistent, “Dad, I need my teeth whiter. Dad, I need my teeth whiter.” She would even cut out teeth whitening advertisements from dental journals and leave handwritten reminders on her dad’s nightstand. As Dr. Fischer’s teenage daughter, Jaleena was determined to keep her dad's attention focused on developing what would become Opalescence Teeth Whitening.

One night, over 30 years ago, when Dr. Fischer was finally satisfied with the whitening gel he and his team had developed, he took it home to Jaleena. He had her load the new whitening gel into the tray before bed and asked her to wear it throughout the night. “When you wake up in the morning don’t take the tray out,” he said. “Come find me, and we’ll take it out together.” The next morning, they took the tray out and discovered that—after just one night—the teeth that had been treated with Opalescence whitener were two shades whiter!

How Opalescence Teeth Whitening Works

The secret was the viscosity of the Opalescence whitening gel. Dr. Fischer knew it needed to have a sticky, viscous composition for the gel to stay in place and provide sustained peroxide release for superior whitening results. Opalescence whitening gel’s distinctive viscosity keeps the gel in place, allowing the peroxide to enter your enamel and do its job.

Whitening occurs as oxygen molecules from the whitening agent spread throughout the tooth and react with the discolored molecules in your teeth. This means that the entire tooth is whitened, even if the whitening gel isn’t in contact with every part of the enamel. This safe, non-invasive, and effective whitening method is what has made Opalescence whitening the global leader in teeth whitening and trusted by dentists and patients alike.

It’s been thirty years since that eventful morning for Jaleena and her dad. In that time, Opalescence whitening has helped millions of people brighten their smiles, giving them more confidence and improving their quality of life. It can do the same for you!
