Opalescence® Xtra Boost Whitening System
How does it work?
With Opalescence Xtra Boost, you will have whiter teeth before you leave our office. This product is so advanced, it does not require a laser or a light for activation. Through enhanced chemical activation, we can now whiten your teeth without the bothersome heat or harmful ultraviolet rays. The product simply activates itself as it sits on your teeth. It's simple. It's easy. And in about an hour, you'll have noticeably whiter teeth.
Will additional whitening be necessary?
The in-office procedure is the greatest jumpstart to whiter teeth. You will likely want to continue whitening after your procedure to ensure that your teeth realize their whitest potential. We will provide you with a system for follow-up treatment that you can use at home for the next couple of days as your teeth continue whitening and eventually stabilize to their final color.
How do I keep my smile white?
After you have the smile you've long desired, it's important to keep it that way. Practice good oral hygiene and always remember to brush after consuming staining food or beverages. Opalescence Whitening toothpaste is a wonderful product for maintaining your bright smile. It not only whitens, it offers a higher fluoride uptake than any other toothpaste.
