Opalescence® Treswhite Whitening System
Introducing Treswhite by Opalescence, the easiest, fastest, and best tasting way to put the white back in your smile.
How does it work?
Whitening your teeth has never been easier. Treswhite's innovative, pre-loaded whitening trays are simply inserted onto your teeth for a comfortable fit. The thin membrane tray adheres to the teeth and remains securely in place for the 60 minute wear time. Yes, only 60 minutes, once a day. It's that easy.
Is it safe?
Treswhite is a perfectly safe way to whiten your teeth. In fact, Treswhite contains both potassium nitrate and fluoride, which have been proven to prevent cavities and remineralize the teeth.
When will I see results?
Treswhite is the most powerful take-home product available. Because it contains such a high concentration of peroxide, results are achieved rapidly. Some people see results in as little as one day. Now that's fast!
How do I keep my smile white?
After you have the smile you've long desired, it's important to keep it that way. Practice good oral hygiene and always remember to brush after consuming staining food or beverages. Opalescence Whitening Toothpaste is a wonderful product for maintaining your bright smile. It not only whitens, it offers a higher fluoride uptake than any other toothpaste.
