There are various habits and factors that can lead to the yellow or darkened look of your teeth, such as drinking dark beverages, chewing or smoking tobacco, and not having a good oral care regimen. Dr. Justin Becerra provides the Opalescence tooth whitening program for treatments at our Lakewood, CO office and in the comfort of your home, which can help eliminate stains on your teeth to create a brighter smile. Opalescence is exceptional because not only does it whiten, the formula combines fluoride and potassium nitrate (PF) to also strengthen your enamel. To meet your specific requirements and goals, Dr. Becerra can help you determine during your appointment at Alpine Dental Arts which Opalescence treatment choice is most appropriate for you.

"If you’ve ever felt anxiety about going to the dentist - look no more! Alpine Dental Arts provides a dentist, Justin Becerra, DDS, and staff that will ease your worries! My husband and I had been discussing changing our dentist. A friend of our family was insistent that we give her dentist a try, because her entire family was so impressed with them. My husband and I decided to give Alpine Dental Arts a try, and we actually signed up with a new dental plan to make that happen.We were NOT disappointed ~ Dr Becerra and his staff are amazing! We all know how important the front desk is for first impressions and accommodations. Ramona and Kathy are very welcoming to each and every client, greeting them by name. They are very knowledgeable on dental procedures, and are always willing to assist with all insurance needs. They share a great sense of humor, as does the entire staff, which always helps to make you feel a little more relaxed and comfortable, especially in a dental office.I had the pleasure of having my first 6 month checkup/cleaning done by Crystal. She did a fabulous job with cleaning my teeth, and I told her that she was the first hygienist to clean my teeth without any discomfort. After my cleanings, I leave their office feeling like I had not been to the dentist. Crystal is very professional, does a great job as a hygienist, and is very calming. I have not had the pleasure of working with Joan, but I’m sure she is just as accommodating and professional.Then there is Barb, who has totally turned my life around with a beautiful smile! She accomplished this without me having to go through expensive braces or invasive procedures. I’m 65, and had pretty much planned on dealing with my teeth as they were from here on out. Over the years, they had turned yellow, and it was difficult for me to smile when having my picture taken. The tops of my front lower teeth had been chiseled away by my teeth grinding. I had two upper, pointed canines that had open spaces between nearby teeth. I finally decided to have my teeth whitened professionally, since the over the counter products didn’t seem to do the job. Barb was so patient and explained the whitening process very thoroughly. During my followup visit, she suggested I might be interested in having some bonding work done on the above mentioned problem areas. I wasn’t even aware of such procedures. She actually performed a quick sample of the procedure on my teeth so I would have an idea of what it would look like (before and after). Needless to say, I had the procedures done by Barb, at a low cost. She was very careful, and it was obvious she is a perfectionist. She wanted everything placed perfectly and shining. It was a very simple and quick procedure, with no pain, and no novocaine. It did wonders for my self-esteem!The newest member of the team, Justin Becerra, DDS, replaced the previous and wonderful Steven Anundsen, DDS (who retired). Dr Becerra is amazing as well. Both my husband and I felt very comfortable with Dr Becerra, and both agreed that he is definitely well educated in his field. He kept the incredible staff, which was encouraging to their clients, right from the start. He is very professional, and joins the entire staff with the ability to enlighten your day. Kudos to Alpine Dental Arts!"- C.D. / Google / Sep 06, 2018
Opalescence may be helpful when you've got considerable teeth discoloration by brightening your teeth while at the same time creating overall healthier teeth. With a number of choices for treatment, Dr. Becerra can help you select the Opalescence method which best fits your goals and needs. You might prefer the rapid results of a procedure in our office, the ease of an at-home treatment, or even a combination of both to get long-term outcomes.
What to Expect
There are many different choices to meet your unique smile goals. During a consultation, Dr. Becerra will evaluate the health of your teeth and understand your aesthetic goals before suggesting an Opalescence treatment. Once you've settled on a treatment, Dr. Becerra will schedule your appointment or help explain how to use your kit at home. In Alpine Dental Arts, we provide:
- Opalescence PF is an at-home whitening kit that is used with custom-made trays. The trays may be used for as few as half an hour or overnight for as long as eight hours.
- Opalescence Go is another an at-home kit with pre-filled dental trays to be worn 15 – 90 minutes per day for one or two weeks.
- Opalescence Boost is an in-office procedure using a 40% hydrogen peroxide bleaching agent that works to eliminate discoloration in less than 60 minutes.
To keep the outcomes of your Opalescence treatment, you should follow a home oral hygiene regimen with proper flossing and brushing. Speak to Dr. Becerra about aftercare products by Opalescence, such as toothpaste and toothbrushes. You also need to continue to attend twice yearly cleanings in Alpine Dental Arts where our staff utilizes specific tools to polish your teeth and eliminate stains. Your results may be visible for several years with good oral hygiene and if you avoid staining foods and beverages, such as tea, coffee, and tobacco products. If you notice that your teeth are starting to dull, then speak to Dr. Becerra about another Opalescence procedure to revive your smile.
Since it's considered a cosmetic procedure, Opalescence is typically not paid for by the majority of dental insurance providers. Alpine Dental Arts takes many payment methods and our office can help you to find low-interest medical financing so that your procedure is affordable. Talk to Dr. Becerra for more information at your appointment.
