What Is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening, also known as teeth bleaching, is a safe and effective cosmetic dentistry procedure that utilizes powerful bleaching agents to remove stubborn stains and tooth discoloration. Unlike over-the-counter whitening products, professional tooth bleaching treatments are administered and tailored to the patient’s needs by a licensed dentist, ensuring optimal results and minimizing the risk of sensitivity or other potential side effects.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Effective Removal of Stubborn Stains

Professional teeth whitening methods like Opalescence use high-concentration bleaching agents including hydrogen peroxide, potassium nitrate, and fluoride, which penetrate deep into the enamel. These agents break down and eliminate tough stains caused by coffee, tea, red wine, tobacco, and aging. Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening products, which may only provide surface-level whitening, professional teeth whitening treatment targets intrinsic stains beneath the enamel and extrinsic stains on top of the enamel, resulting in whiter teeth and a significantly brighter smile.

Customized Treatment Plans

Our Seven Fields and Oakdale dental professionals assess each patient’s unique dental condition, including the severity of discoloration, enamel sensitivity, and oral health status, to create customized teeth whitening trays. These custom trays ensure proper fit and even distribution of the whitening agent, maximizing effectiveness while minimizing the risk of gum irritation or tooth sensitivity. 

Long-Lasting Results with Professional Supervision

Professional teeth whitening treatments yield results that can last several years with proper maintenance and periodic touch-ups. Our dental professionals monitor the whitening process closely, adjusting treatment duration and intensity to achieve the desired shade without compromising dental health. 

Comprehensive Oral Examination

Before undergoing a professional teeth whitening procedure, patients typically receive a comprehensive oral examination with one of our Seven Fields and Oakdale dentists. This examination allows us to detect any underlying dental issues, such as cavities or gum disease, that may need to be addressed before whitening. 

Professional Guidance and Monitoring

Our dental professionals provide valuable guidance and monitoring throughout the whitening process. They offer insights on proper oral hygiene practices and lifestyle habits that help maintain the results. 

Your dentist can also identify any adverse effects or complications with tooth whitening methods, providing prompt intervention for patient safety. This personalized support enhances the whitening experience and contributes to long-term oral health.

The Professional Teeth Whitening Process with Opalescence®


Before undergoing tooth whitening treatment, you’ll have an initial consultation at our Oakdale or Seven Fields office, with one of our cosmetic dentists. During your initial consultation, your dentist will evaluate your teeth and gums to ensure professional teeth whitening is the right choice for you. We’ll discuss your desired teeth whitening outcome, address concerns, and develop your personalized tooth whitening treatment plan.


Our team will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove any plaque or debris for optimal results. We will then take impressions of natural teeth or create custom trays for the whitening gel. We offer a convenient whitening option, called Opalescence Go™.

Teeth Whitening

Our take-home kits allow you to whiten your teeth gradually over several weeks, using custom-fitted trays and a whitening gel for your convenience. 

To use your tooth whitening trays, fill the trays as directed with the prescribed amount of Opalescence Go whitening gel. Ensure the tooth whitening gel is evenly distributed within the trays to achieve uniform whitening results across all teeth. 

Once the trays are filled, gently insert them over your teeth, making sure they are properly seated and comfortable. Wear the trays for the specified duration as recommended by your dentist, typically ranging from 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the concentration of the whitening gel and your sensitivity levels. Afterward, rinse your teeth and clean your whitening trays as directed for future use.

Professional Teeth Whitening Aftercare

To maintain your sparkling new smile, our Oakdale and Seven Fields dentists recommend the following: 

  1. Avoid staining foods and beverages for at least 24 to 48 hours after treatment.
  2. Maintain good oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing regularly.
  3. Use a whitening toothpaste or touch-up gel as recommended by your Seven Fields or Oakdale dentist.
  4. Schedule regular dental cleanings and dental exams.
  5. Avoid habits like smoking or excessive coffee consumption that can restain your teeth.
  6. Use your whitening trays for touch-up whitening treatments as needed to maintain your desired shade.
  7. Follow any specific instructions provided by your dentist for optimal results.
  8. Be patient, as the whitening effect may take a few days to become apparent.
  9. Contact our Seven Fields or Oakdale dental office if you experience any unusual tooth sensitivity or other concerns.

Yes, professional whitening is a safe and effective procedure when performed or directed by a licensed dentist. Dentists take all necessary precautions to protect your teeth and gums during the process, ensuring optimal safety and comfort.

No, professional tooth whitening only affects natural tooth enamel. Existing dental restorations won’t be whitened and may need to be replaced to match your new, brighter tooth shade.

Professional teeth whitening is an elective cosmetic procedure, so it’s most likely not covered by insurance. However, you should check with your insurance provider to get a better understanding of your coverage.
