Years ago now I had my teeth professionally whitened. I already have quite pearly gnashers and it cost a bundle, but I have to say that the results were extraordinary – and I only wish I could do it more!
I have discovered the next best thing however in the form of an at-home whitening system called Opalescence Go, which is also available as a stronger, dentist-only product. It is the perfect option for anyone who is looking for convenient, ready-to-go whitening, and is insanely easy to use. A professional whitening gel delivered in prefilled, disposable trays, Opalescence Go features the brand’s enhanced UltraFit tray and can deliver dramatic results in as a little as 15 minutes per day. The UltraFit tray sets Opalescence Go apart with its unique material that warms with the temperature of the body so that it comfortably molds and adapts to your smile for an even more effective whitening experience and for me, there was zero discomfort or hassle involved. Love that! Think no impressions, models, or lab time required, just an excellent introduction to whitening and a great top up if you’ve already had a whitening treatment in the past. Did it make a difference for me? Most definitely, and I’ve had the positive remarks to prove it.
I tried the six per cent hydrogen peroxide version (with wear times from 30–60 minutes) and had a great result, so I’m hoping to top that up with the 15 per cent hydrogen peroxide (with wear time from 15–20 minutes) in a few months once the silly season is past.
On an ingredient front, Opalescence tooth whitening gel contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride). Potassium nitrate has been shown to help reduce sensitivity, whilst fluoride has been shown to help reduce cavities and strengthen enamel. Together they help to improve the overall health of the teeth and yep, you’ll notice the difference pretty quick.
I love that it comes in prefilled, disposable trays, so it's easy to take with you anywhere you go and there is no mess and no fuss – two factors that have put me off at-home whitening treatments in the past. Opalescence Go also gives you a whiter smile in just 5-10 days when worn just 60-90 minutes per day, and the minty flavour is an added bonus. I have sensitive teeth and experienced no increased sensitivity as well – which I definitely didn’t expect.
So in my humble opinion, give this wonder a go. Ask your dentist for a consult and get in there – healthy looking teeth are seriously the best calling card!Tweet
