Opalescence™ PF 10% and 16%Carbamide Peroxide with Potassium Nitrate and Fluoride
Instructions for Use (IFU)
Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
The sticky, viscous formula of Opalescence gel does not leach from the tray like other whitening agents,3 and the sticky gel holds the comfortable tray securely in place. Opalescence gel contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride). High water content prevents dehydration and shade relapse, making Opalescence gel one of the most reliable whitening gels available.1-4 A university study proves that the gel stays active for 8–10 hours during overnight whitening,4 which means patients experience results quickly, increasing compliance. Opalescence gel is available in a variety of concentrations, formulations, flavors, and kit configurations to meet all your patients’ whitening needs.
Opalescence gel is recommended for whitening discolored teeth prior to placement of composite, veneers, and/or crowns. It is effective in breaking down some or all internal tooth discolorations due to congenital, systemic, pharmacologic, traumatic, etc., factors as well as aging. It is successful with fluorosis and even tetracycline staining.3
