1 00:00:05.186 --> 00:00:09.733 We use Opalescence, which we found does a great job, 2 00:00:10.390 --> 00:00:15.967 specifically, we're using hydrogen peroxide at 15%. 3 00:00:16.017 --> 00:00:19.750 We like what Opalescence is doing with that product. 4 00:00:20.058 --> 00:00:21.142 We're getting great results. 5 00:00:21.143 --> 00:00:23.675 Patients just do it for a very short period of time 6 00:00:23.717 --> 00:00:27.575 each day for about 15 minutes, for five days consecutively 7 00:00:27.608 --> 00:00:29.080 and they're getting very good results. 8 00:00:29.150 --> 00:00:33.342 It's not a problem to use these whitening products 9 00:00:33.583 --> 00:00:39.042 that are ADA approved because we've come to recognize 10 00:00:39.092 --> 00:00:42.292 that they do not cause problems to the teeth, 11 00:00:42.510 --> 00:00:45.533 but to use them consistently over and over again 12 00:00:47.358 --> 00:00:50.583 is going to cause less and less of a chance of whitening your tooth. 13 00:00:51.408 --> 00:00:54.408 Those little molecules that break up become less and less 14 00:00:54.428 --> 00:00:57.050 because there's less of a chance of breaking up those molecules 15 00:00:57.083 --> 00:00:58.317 over the course of time. 16 00:00:58.361 --> 00:01:02.883 Through what you eat and what you drink, you're going to have staining. 17 00:01:03.050 --> 00:01:04.280 It's just going to happen. 18 00:01:04.300 --> 00:01:05.833 Whitening your teeth is okay. 19 00:01:06.092 --> 00:01:09.092 It's a good thing to do if it's something you want to do. 20 00:01:09.442 --> 00:01:13.160 But the over the counter products are pretty good today. 21 00:01:13.190 --> 00:01:15.958 But inhouse, what we're using is very effective. 22 00:01:16.233 --> 00:01:18.808 The whitening effects last for maybe a few months, 23 00:01:18.809 --> 00:01:20.567 maybe even up to six months. 24 00:01:20.667 --> 00:01:22.396 Some people get different results, 25 00:01:22.596 --> 00:01:24.558 so some people will last a little bit longer, 26 00:01:24.700 --> 00:01:27.042 some people, a little less, if you will.
