How to whiten your teeth on a budget

Posted on November 30,2020

Why Opalescence Go could be your ideal teeth whitening system

When you’re looking for a whiter & brighter smile, there are two ‘traditional’ methods of teeth whitening that you may have heard of.

You could choose to have teeth whitening in the dentist’s chair, with a 90 minute treatment using high concentration whitening gel. This option is completely safe and comfortable, and can even improve your overall oral health thanks to the potassium nitrate and fluoride it contains.


Alternatively, you might go with custom made trays that you can use at home. This method involves visiting your dentist to have detailed impressions of your teeth, from which custom whitening trays are made to precisely fit your mouth.

Either of these methods can be considered the “gold standard” of teeth whitening and will give you excellent results.

Yet of course, you might want to whiten your smile without spending a lot of money. Is there still an effective teeth whitening system you could choose? Let’s look at a cost-effective but still powerful option: Opalescence Go.

How Opalescence Go can whiten your smile on a budget

To help you whiten your teeth more cost-effectively, Opalescence Go uses a similar concentration of whitening gel as their take-home kits, but at a fraction of the cost. They’ve achieved this saving by using pre-filled disposable teeth whitening trays that fit snugly onto your teeth, securely holding the whitening gel away from your sensitive gums.


There’s no need to have impressions or expensive custom trays made. Instead, it’s ready to use straight out of the box in two different strengths.

Compared with in-chair teeth whitening or even other forms of take-home whitening, it’s a more affordable system – plus it’s no less effective.

Opalescence Go’s whitening agent uses oxygen molecules to safely penetrate deep into your teeth to reach intrinsic stains (those that are deep inside your teeth).The oxygen then reacts with the discoloured molecules to whiten your entire tooth.

This completely safe tooth whitening option can give you a brighter smile in the comfort of your own home, in about five to 10 days.

Remember to have your teeth professionally cleaned before whitening

A professional cleaning is not only good for the appearance of your smile, but also the health of your teeth and gums.


So before you go ahead with any teeth whitening treatment, we strongly recommend that you have a professional clean with your dental hygienist first.

They can carry out a gentle abrasive treatment that will remove stains and brighten your teeth dramatically, even before your whitening. You can then move on to Opalescence Go for the finishing touch to your beautiful new smile.
