Opalescence Teeth Whitening System
Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with one of our simple bleaching procedures. You may chose to take your time with a custom Take-Home Kit, or with fast results In-Office.
It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile.
Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful brilliant smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.

With just 2 visits, in a few days you can have an inexpensive way to conveniently whiten your teeth and have the effectiveness of in office whitening. We will take “before” pictures and take impressions for custom trays, this first visit is as short as 30 minutes. In only a day or two your Opalescence’s take home kit including your custom bleaching trays will be ready for pick up.
Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

- Works on people of any age
- Is a near-permanent solution for a dull smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive
With 45 minutes of wear per day and Opalescence’s special bleaching agent will bubble stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
What are the details of In-Office Whitening?
We provide in-office whitening in approximately 2 1/2 hours. Making Opalescence Boost work for our patients, this chemically activated whitening treatment offers results in about an hour. This dentist-supervised, in-office procedure is safe and effective, and offers a brighter, whiter smile after just one appointment. At the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.
Considerations for Teeth Whitening
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
