Get more confidence in your smile with professional teeth whitening

Many factors can affect the whiteness of your smile. Some examples include:
• Dietary habits (drinking coffee, tea, soda, and red wine)
• certain medications
• smoking

Tooth whitening is an affordable and effective way to combat common causes of tooth discoloration while boosting your self-confidence and improving your appearance.

At General and Cosmetic Dentistry of Tampa, we have performed thousands of teeth whitening treatments, including Zoom and we have found the best and most lasting results using Opalescence tooth whitening system. Opalescence® offers a wide range of tooth-whitening products designed to brighten your smile. With custom-designed take-home, on-the-go, and in-office options, Opalescence Tooth Whitening Systems accommodate all lifestyles and budgets.

Prescription-strength Opalescence Tooth Whitening Systems are stronger and more effective than over-the-counter teeth-whitening products and are only available through your dentist.


Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are only available through your dentist. While using the Opalescence Tooth Whitening System, your dentist will supervise your treatment from initial consultation through completion. The special whitening gel will not affect your gums, and in many cases, it can help improve your oral health by strengthening tooth enamel, decreasing sensitivity, and offering increased cavity prevention.


Powerful, prescription-strength Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are available in varying strengths depending on your dental needs. Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels can provide results after just one night, although results may vary and can take up to a week before you experience noticeable changes.


Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are delivered through customized bleaching trays designed to fit your unique smile. Your dentist will create your personal trays from an alginate impression of your mouth; this customization is part of what makes Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels so effective.

Further customize your Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gel experience by choosing from the five different treatment options: Opalescence, Opalescence® Tréswhite Supreme™, Opalescence® BOOST, Opalescence after care toothpastes, toothbrushes, and OpalPix®. Talk with your dentist about what options are available to you.
