If you prefer teeth that are immediately whiter right now, Dr. Abeyta has your answer with Boost technology.
Boost is an In-Office Whitening System that uses proprietary technology to whiten your teeth an average of eight shades* in a little over an hour while you relax at your dentist’s office. It’s ideal for anyone who wants immediate results. Boost has revolutionized teeth whitening with state-of-the-art, patented technology that is gentle, safe, and effective. There is no laser, no heat, and no scraping. Our whitening system uses only two simple elements for dramatic results in one office visit: gel and gentle blue light.
What is Boost Tooth Whitening?
Boost is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.
What Can Cause Tooth Discoloration?
There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea or tobacco. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics, or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.
Who May Benefit From Tooth Whitening?
Just about anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective or some as it is for others. Upon an oral exam, Dr. Abeyta can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, including a shade assessment.
Is Tooth Whitening Safe?
Yes, research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any tooth whitening product, Boost is not recommended for children under 13 years of age or pregnant or lactating women.
How Long Do The Results Last?
By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and touch-ups with At Home kits. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office. And you may go even lighter with additional applications.
What Is The Difference Between Over-The-Counter Tooth Whiteners & Boost?
Consulting Dr. Abeyta is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Boost is clinically proven to whiten your teeth eight shades in one hour.
How Does Boost In-Office System Work?
Boost’s light-activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide. As hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged. The Boost light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within one to three days after interruption or completion of the treatment.
How Long Is The Procedure?
The entire procedure takes approximately two hours. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. We recommend a cleaning prior to the actual Boost Whitening session.
