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

"Honestly you couldn't find a better dentist or dental office in North County. The staff is the most professional and kind group that you'll ever meet. Dr. Allred's talent, hard work, education and premium technology is unrivaled. We've trusted him with countless issues from maintenance, ortho, to surgical.

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.
