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, red wine, 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 for some as it is for others. With an oral exam, Drs. Christopher or Stephanie Padilla can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, including a shade assessment.

Is tooth whitening becoming more popular?

Absolutely! A bright, beautiful smile can make a big difference. The Boost Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.

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 and pregnant or lactating women.

Do the results last a long time?

By following some simple post whitening care instructions, your teeth will be lighter than they were before. We recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and touch-ups with Boost take-home gel. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available through our office.

Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and Boost?

Yes! Consulting Drs. Christopher or Stephanie Padilla 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 faster and more effectively than any of these other products. 

How does the Boost In-Office System work?

The Boost’s 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. 

Is the Boost In-office procedure painful?

No. During the procedure, patients can listen to music and many fall asleep.

Are there any side effects?

Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.

How long is the procedure?

The entire procedure takes just over one hour. 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).

How long does Boost Take-Home Whitening take?

The Boost take-home gel is designed to be worn for 30 minutes per application. Drs. Christopher Padilla or Stephanie Padilla will advise you on how long you should wear each application and help you determine how many applications are right for you.

How is the Boost Take-Home System different from the Boost In-Office System?

The main difference between the two systems is that you use the Boost Take-Home System in the convenience of your own home over a series of applications. The Boost In-Office System is performed in the office over a one hour period and a care package is complementary for touch-up whitening sessions at home.
