In Office Teeth Whitening with Instant Results
Opalescence™ Boost™ professional teeth whitening is applied by your dentist right in the dental office to give you a white smile fast! No hot or uncomfortable LED teeth whitening lights are necessary because it is chemically activated, and you’ll have a brighter smile with only two or three 20 minute treatments.
Whitening your teeth removes these stains and discolorations, giving you a whiter, brighter smile. The active ingredients in Opalescence™ teeth whitening gels pass into your teeth to oxidize the discolored molecules deep down in your teeth, removing stains and whitening your smile. Our original, patented formula contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride) for patient comfort and is sticky and viscous, so it stays where it’s placed. This unique feature prevents the teeth whitening gel from seeping out during treatment, ensuring both the gel and tray stay in place and work effectively for the duration of your treatment.
According to a recent survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, “close to one in two (48%) people believe that a smile is the most memorable feature after first meeting someone—more so than the first thing a person says (25%).” That same survey also found that “more than a third of respondents view people with a flawed smile to be less attractive (37%) and less confident (25%) than those with perfect teeth.” Smiles make a lasting impression and a bright, white, beautiful smile won’t be forgotten. People seem to agree—nothing beats a beautiful smile!
Because no studies have been done regarding the safety of teeth whitening during pregnancy, the ADA suggests that “clinicians may consider recommending that teeth whitening be deferred during pregnancy.”7 Most dental professionals follow this suggestion, making it the standard protocol throughout the dental community, and recommend their patients don’t whiten during pregnancy or fertility treatments.
We agree and recommend that pregnant or breastfeeding women, women undergoing fertility treatment, and patients with serious health concerns do not use teeth whiteners.
Current research shows that only hydrogen peroxide (the whitening agent used in Opalescence™ Boost in-office whitening and Opalescence Go™ tray whitening) or carbamide peroxide (the whitening agent used in Opalescence™ PF custom-tray whitening) are effective in whitening teeth. Light activation adds no additional benefit.8 In fact, some research shows that using a light for whitening can be harmful to lips and gums.
If you are looking for a whitening toothpaste, we recommend Opalescence™ Whitening Toothpaste which successfully whitens by removing surface stains and is gentle enough to use daily without damaging your enamel.
Yes, it is safe to use Opalescence™ whitening products on any unnatural tooth surface. If your natural teeth begin to yellow or develop stain, your goal may be to whiten those teeth so that they more closely match your existing dental work. Whitening treatments will not affect the color or shade of a crown, veneer, implant, filling, or tooth restoration.
If you are whitening your teeth before a bonding procedure, consult your dentist. We recommend abstaining from any whitening treatments for 7–10 days before a bonding procedure.
When whitening, keep in mind that your smile looks most natural when the color of your teeth matches the whites of your eyes. Some people want a Hollywood white smile, but that is not a natural color for teeth and few people can actually reach that color of white. Compare strengths and wear times for our various Opalescence™ whitening products and consult with your dentist to help determine the right option for you.
