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.

"When I first moved to the area. I needed a permanent dental bridge put in, the other dentist that was practicing there did it, who is no longer there, not Dr. Mills.

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.

- 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.

To keep the outcomes of your Opalescence whitening treatment, you must stick to a home oral hygiene regimen with good flossing and brushing.

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.
