What is Boost Whitening?
Boost whitening is a powerful new treatment option for patients whose teeth have been stained by foods, drinks or smoking. Compared to over-the-counter whitening kits, Boost whitening is faster and more effective. Our cosmetic dentist in Torrance
says results appear in just one hour for most patients.
Advantages of Boost Whitening
Boost whitening uses a patented bleaching gel to remove deep stains from tooth enamel and dentin. The active ingredient, carbamide peroxide, works almost instantly but leaves tooth structure intact. Boost whitening system contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride). Potassium nitrate has been shown to help reduce sensitivity. Fluoride has been shown to help reduce caries and strengthen enamel. Together they help to improve the overall health of the teeth*.
The Boost Whitening Procedure
Our expert in Boost whitening in Torrance
first prepares the teeth before applying the bleaching gel. Whitening occurs over the next hour and is followed by fast fluoride treatment. Because Boost whitening does not require light activation, it is more comfortable than other professional whitening options.
Patients with virtually any type of tooth discol-md-6oration can receive dramatic benefits from Boost whitening. By avoiding staining foods and drinks, patients can help their results last longer. To find out whether Boost whitening is an option, patients can contact our dentist for a consultation and shade assessment.
