Why Your Teeth Whitening Needs a Professional Touch Malibu, CA

The quest for a brighter, whiter smile has grown in popularity over the years. With the rise of social media and the desire for that perfect selfie, a dazzling set of pearly whites has become an aesthetic standard. While there are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products available, the value of professional teeth whitening cannot be overstated. At Smiles in Malibu, under the expertise of Dr. Bob Perkins, we swear by the Opalescence Teeth Whitening system and here’s why.

What is Opalescence Teeth Whitening?

Opalescence is a leader in the professional teeth whitening industry, having crafted trusted products for over 30 years. It offers a wide range of whitening products tailored to the unique needs and preferences of patients. The active ingredient in the Opalescence gel, either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, permeates the enamel to access discolored molecules in your teeth. It then reacts with these molecules, breaking the bonds that hold them together, resulting in a brighter, whiter smile.

Why Opt for Professional Teeth Whitening?

Sure, going to the drugstore and buying your own whitening products may be cheaper and more convenient – but it comes with some drawbacks. By opting for professional teeth whitening from your dentist, you can ensure the following benefits:

  • Safety: One of the primary concerns with over-the-counter products is the potential for harm if not used correctly. When you opt for professional teeth whitening, you’re in the safe hands of trained dental professionals. Dr. Bob Perkins and his team ensure that the procedure is carried out under controlled conditions, minimizing risks associated with gum irritation or tooth sensitivity.
  • Customized Treatment: Everyone’s teeth are unique. Factors like the degree of discoloration, tooth sensitivity, and desired results play a crucial role in determining the right treatment. Professional teeth whitening allows for a tailored approach, ensuring that you get the results you’re aiming for.
  • Long-Lasting Results: Over-the-counter products might provide temporary brightness, but the results tend to fade quickly. Professional whitening treatments, like Opalescence, offer longer-lasting results, ensuring your smile remains radiant for an extended period.
  • Time-Efficiency: While many DIY kits require multiple applications over several days or weeks, professional treatments can offer significant results in just one session. If you’re looking for instant brightness, seeing a dentist is your best bet.

The Opalescence Advantage

What sets Opalescence apart from other professional whitening systems is its commitment to oral health. Its unique formulation includes potassium nitrate and fluoride, which help reduce sensitivity and increase enamel hardness, respectively. This ensures not just a whiter smile but a healthier one too.

Furthermore, Opalescence gels come in varying concentrations and flavors, allowing for a truly personalized whitening experience. Whether you prefer in-office treatments or take-home kits, there’s an Opalescence product to fit your needs.

By choosing professional teeth whitening, you’re not just opting for a cosmetic upgrade but an overall enhancement in oral well-being.
