Looking for a Convenient Way to Whiten?
We offer different options for whitening teeth and our expert team will discuss each one of them with you. The option that we recommend most is Opalescence Boost. Opalescence Boost whitening is the in-office process of bleaching your teeth to make them whiter. Over time, teeth can become discolored due to drinking coffee or red wine, smoking, and even natural aging. Patients undergoing restorative procedures might also want to whiten their teeth so they match the crowns and bridges being implanted.
If you want dramatically whiter teeth, Boost Whitening is the best way to go. This is a quick and convenient way to whiten your teeth. Research has even shown that Boost Whitening has good short-term and long-term effects, even after a stain-causing substance was added to the teeth after whitening.
Pleasant Street Dental proudly serves the East Longmeadow, Longmeadow, Hampden, Wilbraham & Springfield areas and beyond.
How it Works
Opalescence gels contain an active whitening ingredient (40% Potassium Nitrate) that penetrates your enamel to get to discolored molecules. Oxygen molecules from the whitening agents react with the discolored molecules in your teeth, breaking the bonds that hold them together. The oxygen molecules spread, whitening the entire tooth. As a result, you are left with a brighter, whiter smile.
What to Expect
The procedure takes about an hour, but a full cleaning is recommended before the whitening procedure. While your teeth are being whitened, you can relax with music or television. The difference of Boost Whitening Gels against others, is that this is chemically activated, so no hot, uncomfortable light is needed which reduces sensitivity issues. Teeth whitening is not recommended for children under 13 or for pregnant or lactating women.
