An average person’s life is busy and with a plethora of errands to run; you might hardly get time to visit the dentist’s office regularly. However, neglecting the dental care can have adverse effects on your oral health. Even though you brush twice daily, your teeth may become stained or discolored over time. This can be due to intake of excessive caffeine, smoking, and certain medications or often inherited.

Imagine smiling with yellow teeth, even the imagination is embarrassing. Worry not, Dr. Dutt at Opulent Dental has on-the go solutions to whiten your teeth and brighten your teeth.

What is in office teeth whitening?

In office teeth whitening or professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure in which Dr. Priyanka Dutt “whitens” the teeth to achieve lighter shades. Teeth whitening remove the stains or discoloration from the surface of teeth and give it a polished or glossy look. The best part is you can craft your smile the way you want, and you can stop when you think your smile is white enough!

We use certain chemical or bleaching agents to give the smile you want. The procedure itself usually lasts for only 20 mins (about 30 mins in and out time).

Differences between Professional (In office) teeth whitening and at home teeth whitening


  • Longevity: In office whitening penetrate better and hence the results will stay much longer compared to at home teeth whitening products.
  • Time: In office teeth whitening usually require you to spent about 30 mins at Opulent Dental vs at home teeth whitening methods can require periodic application of the kit (about 30-60 mins) over a series of days or weeks to get only about half the result.
  • Outcomes: In office teeth whitening results are way superior that at home products.

Reasons you may need professional teeth whitening:

  • Staining or discoloration from tea, coffee, alcohol and certain foods
  • Dark teeth due to aging
  • Staining due to smoking and use of tobacco

For mild discoloration, you may get the desired whitening results in one visit but to achieve lighter shades you would require multiple visits. However, to combat darker stains and discoloration due to intrinsic factors, whitening or bleaching might not work, and you would require dental bonding or veneers.


Can teeth whitening make my teeth sensitive?
Even though your teeth will be exposed to chemical bleaching agents, yet the method we use for professional teeth whitening at Opulent Dental will not make them sensitive. Guaranteed! You will leave Opulent Dental with a healthy and a whiter smile.
Is the at-home teeth whitening kit better?
