Opalescence Endo is a specially formulated 35% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to whiten endodontically treated, discolored teeth using the “walking bleach” technique. Once Opalescence Endo is delivered to the pulp chamber, it should be sealed with a temporary cement, and left in the tooth for three to five days.
Shelf Life: Must be refrigerated.
A dark tooth—especially in the anterior region—can be embarrassing for anyone. In the past, the only options to correct such an issue involved invasive procedures like placement of crowns and veneers. But with Opalescence Endo, you can effectively whiten a dark, non-vital tooth while keeping natural tooth structure intact.
Easy to Apply
Self-mixed pastes need to be “spooned” with a spatula from a dappen dish into the cavity. Opalescence Endo is syringe delivered for easy, clean, and fast delivery.
Self-mixed pastes are of a relatively soft consistency, which makes it difficult to hermetically seal the cavity after placement. By contrast, Opalescence Endo is considerably more viscous, easy to place, and can be safely covered with temporary material.
Self-mixed pastes do not always contain the same standardized quantity of active ingredient, and thus there may be fluctuations in their efficacy. In many cases, the material needs to be replaced several times. Opalescence Endo always has the same concentration of active ingredient, and whitening results are achieved after just three to five days. Opalescence Endo is ready to use, economical, and has a long shelf life.
