There are various habits and factors that may cause the yellow or darkened look of your teeth, such as drinking dark beverages, chewing or smoking tobacco, and not having a great oral care regimen. Dr. James Mills provides the Opalescence tooth whitening program for treatments at our Myrtle Beach, SC office and in the comfort of your own home, which can help eliminate stains on your teeth to get a brighter, whiter smile. Opalescence is exceptional because not only does it whiten, the formula combines fluoride and potassium nitrate (PF) to reinforce your enamel. To meet your precise requirements and goals, Dr. Mills can help you determine during your appointment at Market Common Dentistry which Opalescence treatment choice is right for you.
"Christine is a fabulous dental hygienist. Am NOT a fan of going-to-the-dentist (after having to have ALL my baby teeth pulled as a child; then, a decade+ of orthodontia and fillings (since we had no fluoride on our water, i.e. deemed a Communist conspiracy in the ’50s); then on to several decades of periodontal treatments/root canals/crowns and (elective) veneers...aside from wisdom teeth extractions.I swear, I have spent a large part of my life in a dental chair. (I have financed, I conjecture, the sailboats and antique collections of previous dentists) Thus, I have deep-rooted disquietude whenever I have to go to the dentist.That being said, although I still do not wake up w. a spring-in-my-step on days when I have a dental appt, Christine and Dr. Mills do their very best to make my visits (every 3 months) beyond bearable.I highly recommend Market Common Dentistry--for their skill, long-term care plans, and comfort during treatments."- M.R. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2020

A treatment with Opalescence may be helpful if you have considerable teeth discoloration, and it works by brightening your teeth while at the same time creating overall healthy teeth. With a number of alternatives for treatment, Dr. Mills can help you choose the Opalescence method that best meets your goals and needs. You might prefer the rapid results of a procedure in our office, the ease of an at-home treatment, or even a mixture of both for a more long-term outcome.
What to Expect
We offer a number of different choices to meet your particular needs. During a consultation, Dr. Mills will evaluate your enamel and understand your aesthetic goals before suggesting an Opalescence whitening treatment. When you have settled on a method, Dr. Mills will schedule your appointment or help explain how to use your kit at home. In Market Common Dentistry, we provide:
- Opalescence PF is a whitening kit for home that will be used with custom-made trays. The trays may be used for as few as half an hour or at night for as long as eight hours.
- Opalescence Go is another home whitening kit that comes with prefilled dental trays that can be worn anywhere from 15 to 90 minutes each day for one or two weeks.
- Opalescence Boost is an in-office procedure utilizing a 40% hydrogen peroxide whitening formula that works to eliminate discoloration in less than an hour.
To keep the outcomes of your Opalescence whitening treatment, you must stick to a home oral hygiene regimen with good flossing and brushing. Speak to Dr. Mills about aftercare products by Opalescence, such as toothpaste and toothbrushes. You also need to continue to attend twice-yearly cleanings in Market Common Dentistry where our staff utilizes specific tools to polish your teeth and eliminate stains. Your results may be visible for several years with excellent oral hygiene and if you avoid staining foods and beverages, such as tea, coffee, and not using tobacco. If you notice that your teeth are starting to dull, then speak to Dr. Mills about a follow-up Opalescence procedure to revive your smile.
