Teeth whitening is one of the most commonly requested cosmetic dentistry procedures for one simple reason—almost everyone deals with stains or yellowing teeth at some point in their lives. Whether it’s because of smoking, starting each day with a cup of coffee, or simply getting older, discolored teeth are a frequent concern among our patients. Our teeth whitening treatments are a safe, effective way to brighten your smile and shave years off of your appearance.

We offer the following teeth whitening options at Oakdale Dental Associates:


In-Office Opalescence Boost


Opalescence Boost is a safe, dentist-supervised teeth whitening treatment that produces long-lasting results. It uses a 40% hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel that brightens your smile in a single appointment that takes under an hour. Opalescence in-office whitening is chemically activated, which means it doesn’t require light generated by a laser in order to work.


At-Home Opalescence Go



To whiten your teeth from the comfort of home, we offer Opalescence Go bleaching kits. This convenient option comes with pre-loaded whitening trays with 15% hydrogen peroxide solution prescription-strength strips that are worn for 15 to 20 minutes for 7 to 10 days. Opalescence Go is affordable and effective; it can be used on its own or as a complement to Opalescence Boost treatments.


Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening


How do I get my yellow teeth white again?


The answer to this question depends on the cause of your yellow teeth. For most patients, teeth whitening treatments can brighten teeth that are yellowed, but in some circumstances, yellow teeth are the result of enamel erosion and resistant to traditional whitening treatments. During your consultation, we’ll let you know if your tooth discoloration is a fit for teeth whitening treatments; if not, we’ll go over alternative procedures to help you achieve a whiter smile.


How can I get whiter teeth in one day?


The only way to get noticeably whiter teeth in a single day is with in-office teeth whitening treatments. They produce the most dramatic results in the shortest amount of time.


What are the side effects of teeth whitening?


Some patients experience tooth sensitivity after teeth whitening treatments, but this is usually temporary and lasts no more than a few days.


How many sessions do you need for teeth whitening?


In-office teeth whitening treatments typically only require a single appointment.


How long does Opalescence take to work?


Opalescence Boost produces dramatic results in under an hour, but because Opalescence Go is designed for home use, its results take a bit longer. While your Opalescence Go trays start working to brighten your smile right away, it can take a few days for you to start to see the results, as they’re more gradual. Taking before and after photos can help you see the difference in your smile once your treatment is complete.
