Over time, stains and discoloration can occur on the teeth for multiple reasons including, drinking dark liquids, eating dark or staining foods, tobacco use, and smoking. To help remove these unwanted stains and discoloration, Dr. Jeffrey Allred at Allred Dental provides Opalescence teeth whitening. Opalescence can whiten teeth by several shades, and it can help patients achieve confidence in their smiles and meet their individual goals. Using potassium nitrate and fluoride to strengthen the enamel, Opalescence is provided at our San Marcos, CA location as both an in-office and at-home whitening treatment to allow for stronger, brighter, and overall healthier teeth.
"I had such a wonderful experience at Allred dental. Dr. Allred and his staff are super friendly and attentive they made me feel totally relaxed which is pretty rare for being at a dentist office. I was actually a little nervous going in for my procedure because I was scared it was going to be painful. In the contrary I felt no pain and they were finished before I knew it. It was great!! I would highly recommend Allred dental to anyone needing dental services."- C.C. / Google / Aug 21, 2017
"Dr. Allred is amazing at what he does. I didn't even feel the shots and he banged out 8 cavities in one sitting for me. It was impressive to say the least. Thanks Jeff!"- E.A. / Yelp / Oct 01, 2017

"I have not seen a better dentist since 2002! I have had some pretty bad experiences in the past but Dr. Allred turned that all around today. He and the staff (front desk and assisstants included) are all super calm, friendly, and reassuring. I felt like I was a family member.I am pretty sure I asked an annoying amount of questions and I always got a detailed answer and never felt rushed. Literally the most thourough dentist I've ever had. I have been pretty scared of going to the dentist for nearly 15 years but Dr. Allred completely turn my fear around. I cant say enough good things. I have definitely found my life-long dentist! Thank You Allred Dental!!"- S.S. / Google / Jun 21, 2017
"I've had a lot of experience with dentists and Dr. Allred is the best I've been to. He is gentle, professional and does beautiful work. He also has what seems to me to be the latest in equipment. If you're a little neurotic (or a lot as I am) about dental visits, then this is the place for you. His staff without exception are great. They are very helpful and knowledgable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Allred to my family and friends."- B. / Google / Jun 21, 2017
What to Expect
Depending on the system chosen by the patient, Dr. Allred will go over specific directions to help the patient get their best result:
- Opalescence PF: Take-home whitening kit in several concentrations and three flavors used with custom mouth trays that can be worn 30 minutes – 8 hours
- Opalescence Go: Home whitening kit with prefilled, disposable mouth trays that come in three flavors and should be worn 15 – 90 minutes per day for 1 – 2 weeks
- Opalescence Boost: An in-office whitening treatment that uses 40% hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel to remove stains without lights or lasers in under 60 minutes
To maintain their results, patients can ask about the best home oral care routine, which may include Opalescence whitening toothpaste in addition to flossing and mouthwash. Dr. Allred will talk to each patient about food and drinks that should be avoided or what can be done to minimize stains and maintain their new, bright smile. Bi-annual cleanings at Allred Dental will also help remove tougher stains.
Similar to most cosmetic procedures, Opalescence is generally not covered by dental insurance; however, our office offers financing and we take several forms of payment. Fees and financing options can be discussed during the patient's consultation.
