When it comes to in-office whitening, many dentists use products such as Zoom, which utilize whitening gel in combination with a light or heat source. Dr. Macalik prefers to use Boost (which does not require heat or light) and one of the greatest advantages for you is that you will not experience the tissue trauma or burns to the gums that can often be an uncomfortable side effect of heat-activated whitening products.
What Makes Boost Different from Zoom Whitening?
Boost is a chemically-activated whitening treatment with a unique formula that whitens teeth without the ultraviolet rays or heat of a Zoom light. Its syringe-to-syringe mixing system ensures not only ensure freshness, but delivers an evenly mixed product. It also has a distinct red color, making placement and removal of the product easy.
Boost usually takes less than an hour and you will see significant results after just one treatment. It’s often applied in three treatments of about 20 minutes. The Boost formula contains fluoride and potassium nitrate which actually helps to improve your overall oral health by:
- Decreasing sensitivity
- Strengthening your enamel
- Creating an increased level of cavity prevention
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to transform your smile.
