With just two or three 20-minute treatments its powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide formula provides instantly noticeable results. It is perfect for patients who want to get whiter teeth fast, who have particularly difficult stains to remove, or who have an important event around the corner that requires a bright, white smile.
Trust the experts. With over 30 years of experience, more than 50 teeth whitening awards earned, and over 100 million smiles brightened, Opalescence teeth whitening is the #1 professional teeth whitening brand on the planet.
The Best Way to Whiten Teeth Fast
Some in-office whitening procedures rely on lights or lasers to “activate” the chemical whitening agent. However, Opalescence Boost in-office whitening relies solely on chemical activation. Studies have confirmed that the whitening agent is effective without any lasers1.
Opalescence Boost teeth whitening gel’s innovative double-syringe mixing configuration ensures fresh teeth whitening gel for each application. Because the gel is chemically activated, no refrigeration is required prior to mixing.
After it is mixed, Opalescence Boost teeth whitening gel is conveniently applied using a Black Mini™ tip. Its thick viscosity formula prevents the gel from running, and its noticeable red color makes it easily visible to aid in precise placement and complete removal. Opalescence Boost whitening gel is also formulated with at least 20% water content, which helps prevent dehydration—maximizing patient comfort and satisfaction.
Create an At-Home Teeth Whitening Kit for Your Patients
While each Opalescence teeth whitening kit is effective as a stand-alone teeth whitening treatment, many patients benefit from using a combination of products to meet their needs. Because each Opalescence teeth whitening product works in combination with the others, it is easy to create a customized teeth whitening kit for any patient to take home. For example, Opalescence Go teeth whitening trays are a great way to follow-up an Opalescence™ Boost™ in-office whitening treatment and go perfectly with the daily use of Opalescence™ Whitening Toothpaste. A 1 oz. tube of Opalescence Whitening Toothpaste is included with each Opalescence Go whitening patient kit.
The names Opalescence teeth whitening and Ultradent are synonymous with quality. All of our research and development is done in-house. So is our manufacturing and quality control. This allows us to guide and oversee the entire process from the time an Opalescence whitening innovation is conceived to the time it s created and packaged for shipping. We have met the strictest standards, and our facility is FDA registered and ISO 13485 certified. All of this ensures every product performs exactly as it s supposed to for you and for your patients.
Opalescence teeth whitening products are among the most stable whitening products in the industry, each maintaining virtually all of its effectiveness over the course of its shelf life. Because delivery times vary depending on the location of each particular dental office, Opalescence whitening products are formulated with transit time in mind. Although shelf life is ultimately dependent on how each product is stored, our teeth whiteners will remain stable even after being shipped across the country2.
Formulated with High Water Content
Many whitening products on the market dehydrate teeth, resulting in uncomfortable sensitivity for patients. Opalescence Boost teeth whitening gel is made up of at least 20% water content which prevents dehydration.
No Refrigeration Required Prior To Mixing
Vegan and Certified Gluten Free
Opalescence Boost whitening gel is vegan, meaning no animal products are used. It is also certified gluten free by the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America (GFCO)—an independent, third-party certification program for gluten-free products. This means it fits in with the lifestyles and beliefs of patients from diverse backgrounds.
Made in the USA from Globally Sourced Materials
Opalescence teeth whitening gels, trays, syringes, and toothpastes are manufactured at Ultradent’s facility in Utah from globally sourced materials. By purchasing products manufactured in the USA, you are supporting our nation’s economy and helping to provide jobs to hundreds of Americans who take pride in what they do.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does teeth whitening work?
Opalescence whitening gels contain an active whitening ingredient—either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. Peroxide gels break down into water, oxygen, and reactive oxygen molecules. These reactive oxygen molecules treat both the enamel and the dentin, oxidizing the bonds of discolored stain molecules. By changing the stained molecules, the tooth becomes lighter.3
Reactive oxygen molecules permeate the entire tooth, so there is no need for the whitening agent to be in contact with every surface of the tooth for the entire tooth to be whitened.4
Will teeth whitening affect bond strength?Because the reactive oxygen needs to dissipate from the tooth before bonding, it is necessary to wait 7–10 days before any bonding procedure.5
How long do teeth whitening results last?Teeth whitening results are very stable, but depending on the patient’s nutrition and lifestyle habits, the procedure may need to be redone periodically. Due to the safety of the teeth whitening agents, this should not concern the dentist or patient.
Will teeth whitening cause sensitivity?Tooth sensitivity can occur as a result of whitening. If sensitivity occurs, it is transient and disappears after the completion of whitening treatments. If desensitizing treatments are desired, we recommend the use of UltraEZ™ desensitizing gel or Enamelast™ fluoride varnish. Opalescence™ Whitening Toothpaste Sensitivity Formula can also be used to help to prevent or lessen sensitivity if it occurs.
