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 Longwood Family Dentistry, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 407-332-6060 to schedule a consultation.
Take Home Trays
Take-home whitening trays are a tooth whitening procedure you can perform in the comfort of your home. This is an easy and cost-effective teeth whitening treatment. You must follow the instructions given by our dentist to obtain the results at home. Although they can be a convenient option, obtaining great results can take longer than other treatments and they don’t always work as well for deep stains. These trays are custom made to go over your teeth and whiten them with a special gel that is found on the inside of the trays.
The time they must remain on your teeth can vary according to your teeth whitening needs.
