Teeth Whitening Options

Teeth whitening is amongst the most popular cosmetic dental processes because it can improve your smile considerably. It is a process that restores the natural color of the teeth, or in many cases, enhances the color of the teeth to a whiter shade.


Opalescence Boost is a chemically activated power whitening gel that provides brighter, whiter teeth after just 40 minutes in the dental chair. The powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide gel is chemically activated, so it doesn’t require a hot, uncomfortable light to work. 

Opalescence Boost consists of two syringes: The first contains 38 percent hydrogen peroxide, the active tooth whitening ingredient. The second syringe contains fluoride and potassium nitrate (PF), which helps strengthen tooth enamel, reduce sensitivity and protect against cavities. When mixed, the gel produces a distinct red color to help ensure correct placement and full removal of the product. 

Safe and effective, Opalescence Boost usually takes only one dental visit to complete. While one visit is all you need to achieve a brighter smile, difficult stains or extreme discoloration may require additional treatments.

At Willow Knolls Family Dental, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 309-691-9072 to schedule a consultation.

Take Home Trays

Take-home whitening trays are a type of teeth whitening procedure that you can perform in the privacy and comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective treatment that is easy to obtain. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to see the results.

Although they can be a convenient option, seeing great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work for deep stains. These trays are custom made to fit your teeth and whiten them through a special gel that is placed on the inside of the trays.
