About Opalescence Teeth Whitening

Opalescence is an advanced take-home teeth whitening kit. The kit provides a custom solution for patients to use in the comfort of their homes. Our team will take impressions of your teeth to create a custom-made whitening tray that will hold the whitening gel against your teeth.

The bleaching gel contains hydrogen peroxide, which breaks down stains from foods and drinks that have built up on the teeth over time. The hydrogen peroxide gel is applied directly to the surface of the teeth and rinsed off with water when finished.

Patients should use the whitening kit every night for a week or two for 3-4 hours at a time. Patients will see dramatic results at the end of this 2-week whitening process. Some patients will need to do occasional touch-up treatments to maintain their preferred level of whiteness.

Why Should You Get Your Teeth Whitened?

Teeth whitening can transform a smile in a short amount of time and with little effort. Whitening treatments can offer our patients several benefits, including:

A brighter smile that looks more youthful

Fast and dramatic results

Improved self-confidence

Non-invasive and painless

At-Home Whitening FAQs

Most dental patients are candidates for teeth whitening, but your teeth must be free of cavities, and your gums need to be in good health. Patients with yellowed teeth or stained teeth are more likely to respond to treatment and will see the biggest results after whitening.

Opalescence teeth whitening, on average, will cost approx $250 per arch. The teeth whitening kit includes your take-home whitening trays that are custom-made for you and the Opalescence whitening solution.

Some whitening treatments can cause increased tooth sensitivity, but this is typically short-lived and subsides after completing treatment. Opalescence gel contains potassium nitrate and fluoride. These ingredients will help to maintain the integrity and health of your tooth enamel so that you are less likely to experience sensitivity issues.

In-office teeth whitening treatments can often be more expensive than at-home professional teeth whitening kits, but they can provide quicker results. Opalescence at-home kits are custom tailored to each patient and use professional strength whitening solutions. Patients will see similar levels of a white smile, but with at-home kits, they may take a longer time to see desired results than an in-office treatment.
