Whitening with braces on.

Whitening with braces on.


                   I have been whitening my teeth for several years now. Recently, when I started my orthodontics, I did not want to stop whitening! I really want to share my experience and my go-to product with you all! I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first (as was everyone else that saw me bleaching)! So, I got in contact with one of our representatives.

              I asked her to give me the “Chemistry of Bleaching”.  She educated me in regards to the process of whitening and how it works! “When you are whitening your teeth you do not bleach extrinsically (outside), you bleach intrinsically (inside). Your stains are on the inside of your teeth, not the outside. The bleach works as the ingredients penetrate the tooth and spreads throughout. It does not matter if you have a bracket placed on the surface of your tooth because you bleach from the inside, it then shows on the outside!” Monica (Field Sales Consultant with Ultradent).

                    Opalescence Go trays are what I have been using to whiten my teeth since I have had my braces on, I love the product quality and the ingredients that are in the trays. A few of the main ingredients include: Hydrogen Peroxide, Xylitol and Fluoride. These ingredients work to: Whiten the teeth, prevent bacteria from adhering to the teeth and around the brackets, eliminate any bacteria that may be around the brackets and prevent the teeth from becoming sensitive! Those ingredients all work together in different ways to make your smile glisten and give you a shot of confidence!

If you have braces on and would still like to whiten your teeth, give us a call and we will help you out! I have loved having a white smile with braces on and would love for you to also be confident with your braces on as well. Happy Bleaching!
