Opalescence Boost Whitening in Beverly Hills
Opalescence Boost whitening in Beverly Hills is one of the most popular teeth bleaching services. It is convenient and fast, and it delivers stunning results! If you ever watched the ABC show Extreme Makeover, you’ve probably seen how some individuals have benefited from this treatment — but Boost isn’t just for folks on TV. It’s a great option for almost anyone who wants to say goodbye to deep-set dental stains and hello to a smile that turns heads wherever you go.
How Boost Works
Many in-office Beverly Hills teeth whitening systems require a special light to activate the bleaching gel, but Boost is different. It is chemically activated, which means that all it has to do is sit on your teeth for a few minutes as it penetrates the enamel to break up even stains that have been there for years. The gel is a strong hydrogen peroxide solution that also contains a compound called PF (a mix of potassium nitrate and fluoride), which helps to strengthen teeth and reduce post-procedural sensitivity.
When you’re in our office for Boost whitening, you can expect the process to go something like this:
- We cover your gums and lips so the bleaching gel won’t irritate them.
- The gel gets applied to your teeth, and we leave it there for 10 -15 minutes while you relax and enjoy our entertainment system.
- We rinse off the gel and check the shade of your teeth. We can reapply Opalescence Boost a few more times, or until we reach the desired results.
- The total amount of time you spend in our office should be less than an hour. However, if you want ultra-white teeth or have very deep stains that need to be removed, you might have to come back for a few more whitening sessions.
How to Maintain Your Results
Boost can whiten your teeth by several shades, but how long the results last is largely up to you. To keep your smile as bright as possible for as long as possible, your cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills recommends that you enjoy dark foods and beverages (such as coffee and red wine) in moderation. You should also avoid other staining habits, including tobacco use.
Oral hygiene is another key to keeping your teeth beautiful. A whitening toothpaste can help to fight surface stains, and a good flossing habit can remove plaque between the teeth that might lead to discoloration.
Periodically, you may need to do some whitening touchups. We offer take-home whitening kits that you can use when you notice that your smile is looking a little less lustrous than it did immediately after your Boost session.
Is Boost Right for You?
The majority of our patients are good candidates for Boost. However, if you have extremely sensitive teeth, you might want to consider take-home whitening instead. Also, keep in mind that the bleaching gel will not affect the color of fillings, dental bonding, or crowns; if you have any of these restorations on your front teeth, you might need to speak to Dr. Valentine about alternative ways to achieve the dazzling grin you’ve always wanted.
