Opalescence—From the Tooth Whitening Experts
Opalescence™ Whitening Toothpaste might have new packaging, but it’s role in this whitening family hasn’t changed: effective daily hygiene and surface stain removal.
Effective Daily Plaque and Surface Stain Removal
If your patients want to enjoy foods that stain the tooth over time, this toothpaste is a whitening essential. Our Original Cool Mint and Sensitivity Relief formulas are designed to become an everyday toothpaste for your patients.
40 Million Adults Currently Suffer from Sensitive Teeth
Sensitivity can be caused by multiple factors such as exposed dentin, tooth whitening, dietary choices, hygiene procedures, etc. Opalescence™ Whitening Sensitivity Relief Toothpaste adds all of the benefits of the Original, plus the maximum strength (5%) of potassium nitrate. That maximum anti-sensitivity power helps provide relief by depolarizing the nerves, while the sodium fluoride occludes the dentin tubules. The sodium fluoride (1100 ppm) also strengthens enamel and helps fight caries.
Outstanding Flavor and True Enamel Strengthening
Both formulas offer an outstanding flavor profile that combines 3 exotic mints. It freshens breath and leaves the mouth feeling clean and cool. Both are also sweetened with xylitol, which may reduce the risk of tooth decay.
Why is RDA important?
Dentin is up to 4 times softer than enamel.
The FDA limits RDA to 200, the ADA 250 for whitening toothpaste. These high abrasion formulas have an erosive effect on dentin and enamel. Higher RDA showed increased dentin wear. This in turn makes patients more susceptible to tooth decay, gum recession, increased sensitivity, and decreased luster of restorations.
Opalescence Whitening Toothpaste has half the RDA of other leading whitening toothpastes. Whether Original or Sensitivity Relief it’s been designed for long-term daily use to create a bright, white, healthy smile.
