Things to Know About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening treatments offer fast, non-invasive methods to enhance your smile. It is a process that restores the natural color of the teeth, or in many cases, just brightens the color of the teeth beyond its natural shade. Almost everyone who chooses for a teeth whitening solution sees reasonable to significant improvement in the glare and whiteness of their smile. There are many teeth whitening techniques offered at our dental office and over the counter.

Opalescence Boost

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 Galleria Dental, Opalescence Boost is just one of many teeth whitening options. Call us at 702-433-0007 to schedule a consultation.
