Here's How Opalescence In-Office Whitening Can Transform Your Smile in an Hour

If you're looking for a quick and effective way to brighten your smile, Opalescence™ in-office teeth whitening treatment is the solution. At SPA Dental Group, with offices in New York City and Washington, DC, we offer professional teeth whitening that can transform your smile in as little as an hour, leaving you with a brighter and more confident grin. 

What is Opalescence in-office whitening?

Opalescence is a professional teeth whitening treatment administered in our dental office. Unlike traditional over-the-counter whitening products, this treatment is much more powerful and more effective. It helps break down the stains and discoloration on your teeth, leaving your smile brighter and radiant.

How Opalescence works

The treatment is simple and straightforward. The step-by-step process involves:


Before the treatment, we clean your teeth to ensure you don’t have any debris or plaque on them that may interfere with the whitening process. We also apply a protective barrier to your gums and lips to prevent any irritation from the whitening gel.

Application of the gel

We apply the whitening gel to your teeth using a special brush. Because Opalescence is more powerful than the gels used in over-the-counter whitening products, you can expect significant results in a shorter time.


Once we apply the gel, we activate it with a special light that leaves your teeth brighter and more radiant in about an hour.

Final touch-ups

After your treatment, we perform final touch-ups to ensure your smile looks perfect. We may use a special tool to remove any excess gel or apply a desensitizing agent to your teeth to reduce any sensitivity you might experience.

If you have any questions about the process, feel free to ask any of our dental professionals.

The benefits

There are many benefits to choosing Opalescence over other whitening methods. Some of the key advantages include:

With proper maintenance, you can keep your successful outcome for up to two years. That means you can enjoy your brighter smile for a long time after the treatment.

Finding out if it’s right for you

Opalescence is a great option for anyone who wants to brighten their smile quickly and effectively. However, it may not be suitable for everyone. Some factors that may affect your eligibility for this treatment include:

Dental history

If you have a history of sensitive teeth or gums, you may not be a good candidate for teeth whitening. We can help determine whether this treatment is suitable for you.

Existing dental work

If you have any existing dental work, such as fillings, crowns, or veneers, these may not whiten along with your natural teeth. This means you may need to have the rest of your teeth whitened again after your existing dental work has been replaced.


It's essential to have realistic expectations with professional teeth whitening. While it can significantly brighten your smile, it may not be able to address all types of stains and discoloration. We can advise you on whether this treatment is the best option based on your needs.
