I just tried the 35%, and I couldn't wear them for over 40 minutes. I have used 15% two years ago, and there is no difference regarding the expected results. The whitening process takes as long, the only difference is the daily time you should wear them. My dentist warned me about 35% and sometimes when I swich from hot to cold, it hurts a bit. Another problem would be that along with whitening the teeth, it whitens gums as well.

Also, do not drink coffee, or smoke. This gives extra "nuance" to the teeth, and it takes longer and more syringes to get to the results you would get without doing this. Also avoid carrots and other staining products like natural juices, red wine, any aliments which contain colorants. When I had my first bleaching I drank a greenish cocktail with a friend of mine and because my teeth were so sensitive, they were green for 3 days while I still did my whitening.

SO... my advice... don't overfill the tray and don't keep the solution longer than 40 minutes (max for 35%). I can't see how you could do that anyway.

Before a whiter smile, comes a healthy one!

This product works really well. Just make sure your tray is completely dry from the night before when you put in the new gel. I didn't do that last night and it was fizzing the whole time. When you push it up on your teeth, just run your finger across the top to get rid of any excess gel that might irritate your gums. I think I will definitely try the technique of skipping nights every now and then to give my teeth "a break".
It is worth it!!!

The cheapest and fastest way to white teeth. All bleaching services are all overated and too expensive from a dentist. Do it yourself is the best way to go. Make sure your teeth have had a regular check up to get rid of any plaque build up and Amazon has cheap great specials on Opalescence. This is something I will only use and very easy to use even though yes there might be sensitivity but if you use Fluordex a strong Fluoride toothpaste or Sensodyne you should be fine.

This is by far the best whitening product I have ever used my dentist does not carry it anymore and I went across town to find another dentist that carries this product.I work as a model and I am often on air and in pictures I have never had ANY product work so well.I switched a few times because of my own dentist using different products I have used zoom and crest and nothing has come close!!!!I can use this product once and get the same results as I would over a month using other products!

Loved it! tried the over the counter strip stuff, the paint on stuff and it all stunk, tasted bad, foamed up in my mouth and didn't stay in place. To add insult to injury it didn't work, so I went to my Dentist and she gave me the Opalescense whitening and it worked beautifully! Love my smile and wish I hadn't spent all the money on the over the counter stuff.

I have been using the 10% for the last three weeks or so... I never do it on a constant basis (I probably should) but it has worked great so far. I might do it once or twice a week... maybe three times. I usually just leave them in all night. A little sensitivity but not bad at all. I am going to try the 35% and wear them for the recommended 2 hours and pull them out.

I just started using the 15% solution 3 days ago...I wear the trays at night for approx 8hrs and I am noticing a huge difference so far! A little streaky but I know over time that will fade. One thing I do notice is the ZINGERS and sensitivity I do get from time to time. The horrible zingers I have had twice (one as we speak...now my enitre lower jaw is throbbing). Other than that, well worth it :)

I have been using product for 10 days (gone through 3 tubes). Seems like it is taking forever! I have noticed a slight change, but not significant and my teeth weren't that bad to begin with. I didn't really get any instructions....can you still drink coffee while bleaching? And do your teeth continue to get whiter after treatment?

It's been two weeks that I've used the 15% gel. Some sensitivity and a couple "shooting pains", but got through it. The color is improved, but not as much as I had hoped. Dentist had a special on this - $99 instead of $499. I had an initial in office gel treatment and then did some at home treatments 28 years ago and the results were much better - think that cost then was about $200. I would really like to know what the hygenist and dentist think about my results...did I get what they expected, they never indicated their thoughts on this other than I should get good results. As stated elsewhere on this website, results are based on hue, chroma and value... and also age.

I love this product. I have used it for 5 years, and have always had great results. I bumped up from 20% to 35% this time, and ouch!!! Major sensitivity. I think I used too much in the tray though. Only the gums hurt, not my teeth.

I've used this product for well over 15 years (as needed). Its terrific and worth the original expense. I have never had to replace the custom trays...still using the same ones! Since my move to Hawaii, 3 years ago, I have used a different bleach formula called "Day Lite" since thats all my dentist carries. Its not nearly as effective in whitening as Opalescence, but better than any over-the-counter products. I am trying to find it online as one reviewer suggests it is now available online. Hope so! Does anyone know of a site that sells it online? I do have sensitivity problems on occasion, but you just skip a day or two and do it again. Not a problem for me doing using that method. Once you use it, you won't want any other product. Highly recommended.

I was introduced to the Opalescence Whitening system through my dentist about three months ago. I love the system, but the sensitivity was a problem. I spoke with the dentist receptionist, she suggested to skip days between whitening to allow the sensitivity to go away, then proceed. This was the best advice to continue with the procedure to get the results that I want. so I will still get the same results at a slower pace before I get my crown replaced. Also, thanks to your website for the information to wait 2 weeks to allow the color to come true before replacing my crown.

I have used Opalescence for 10 years. After the initial month or so to get my teeth beautifully white, I just maintain it about once every 2-3 months. I get compliments all the time about my pretty white teeth - natural looking, not "neon white". I recommend this to all my friends!

Great product. I saw results after just one use. The only problem is the sensitivity but in my mind the results are worth it.

I've used the 20% for only 4 treatments, and I can already tell a difference, as can my family. I'm pleased so far except that my gums are irritated. I think I'll hold off for a couple of days and then pick it back up. My dentist was having a 50% off special, so the cost was affordable.

This product is a waste. I guess it worked a little bit the it's pretty rediculous that you have to go to your dentist to get a mouth piece just so you can use this. Pay for this product and pay for a mouth piece. WASTED MONEY. I wont reccommend this product to anyone.

I used this product for a few weeks and experienced some tooth sensitivity a few hours after each use but the results outweighed the discomfort. I recommend this product but start slow and beware of what will come if you try to speed up the treatment.

Yes. This product is the best. I used it for a few weeks and the results lasted for what I think was about 3 years!~! I've tried a few others since, and the result is not the same nor is it as long lasting as this product. This IS the best.

I used this product. It worked very well but I didn't like how long it took. However, it holds up for a long time. Your teeth will be whiter for at least a year as long as you continue to use a whitening toothpaste.

I highly recommend this - I have used Opalescence 15% and 20%. They both worked great. I got resutls after just one application. The custom fabricated trays is an investment though.
