Opalescence Boost is a chemically activated power whitening gel that provides brighter, whiter teeth after just 40 minutes in the dental chair. The powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide gel is chemically activated, so it doesn’t require a hot, uncomfortable light to work. Using the unique double-syringe configuration, the clinician activates the 40% hydrogen peroxide formula just prior to application, ensuring every dose of Opalescence Boost is fresh and effective.
- Chemically activated, so no light is needed
- Powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide gel
- Opalescence tooth whitening gel 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.1-5
- Fresh chemical for each application
- Precise delivery
- Easy to see for complete removal
- Two 20-minute applications for a total of 40 minutes of treatment time
Opalescence Boost Procedure
Place protective eyewear and clothing on yourself and the patient. Check to see that the syringes are securely attached before mixing. Press the plunger of the red syringe in, pushing all the contents into the clear syringe. Forcefully press the small clear stem completely into the larger clear stem. Then press the clear plunger completely into the red syringe. To activate, press the chemical from the red syringe into the clear syringe with thumbs. Reverse action, and mix a minimum of 25 times on each side.
Press all mixed gel into the RED syringe. Separate the two syringes and attach the Micro 20ga FX® tip onto the red syringe. Check the flow on a cotton gauze or mixing pad prior to applying it intraorally. If resistance is met, replace the tip and recheck the flow.
Place Ultradent IsoBlock™ and self-supporting plastic cheek retractors. Completely rinse and air dry teeth.
Securely attach a Micro 20ga tip to OpalDam®Green and check flow. Express a continuous bead along the gingival margin, overlapping approximately 0.5mm onto the enamel. Begin and finish the bead one tooth beyond the most distal tooth that is being bleached, building the barrier 4–6mm high and 1.5–2.0mm thick. Express the resin through any open embrasures.
Light cure the OpalDam Green resin barrier for 20 seconds per arch using a scanning motion. Carefully check the resin cure with an instrument.
Apply a 0.5–1.0mm thick layer of Opalescence Boost 40% to the labial surface of the tooth and slightly onto the incisal/occlusal surfaces. Allow the gel to remain on the teeth for 20 minutes.
Suction gel from teeth using the Ultradent®Luer Vacuum Adapter and SST™ – Surgical Suction tip. Do not use water. Repeat steps 6–7 one or two times until desired results are achieved. Do not exceed three applications per visit.
After the final application is complete and all visible gel is removed, thoroughly rinse the teeth.
Gently slide the tip of a dental instrument beneath the OpalDam Green and lift it off. Check for and remove any interproximal remnants.
Evaluate the shade change. If additional whitening is desired and no significant sensitivity is noted, reschedule the patient in three to five days for repeat treatment or to dispense take-home whitening trays.
Indications for Use
Before and After Opalescence Boost
No Light Needed
Scientific studies6-12 have proven that the best in-office bleaching results do not require a light. That’s why Opalescence Boost has always been chemically activated for the highest quality in-office whitening available.
Offering dramatic results after just two 20-minute treatments, Opalescence Boost is perfect for patients looking for instant whitening gratification or those who have an important event coming up that requires a bright, white smile.
Innovative Mixing and Delivery
Opalescence Boost uses a unique syringe-to-syringe mixing method to ensure fresh, effective product for every application. Once the gel is mixed, Opalescence Boost is conveniently applied to the teeth through the Micro 20ga FX tip. This specially designed tip has flocked fibers on the end to allow quick, easy, and precise delivery.
With its powerful 40% hydrogen peroxide formula, Opalescence Boost can provide noticeable whitening results in less than one hour. Because of its powerful concentration, Opalescence Boost is only administered in the dental office.
Distinct Red Color
The noticeable color of Opalescence Boost makes it easy to see, which helps during placement and removal.
Opalescence products are among the most stable whitening products in the industry, maintaining virtually all of its effectiveness over the course of its shelf life.13,14 Because delivery times vary depending on the location of each particular dental office, Opalescence products are formulated with transit time in mind, so they remain stable even after being shipped across the country. In fact, stability studies performed on Opalescence tooth whitening gels have shown that the peroxide potency at the end of the product’s shelf life is consistently 90% or greater.
Formulated with 20% Water
Many whitening products on the market dehydrate teeth, resulting in uncomfortable sensitivity for patients. Opalescence Boost is made up of 20% water to keep the teeth hydrated during the whitening process. This high water content, combined with optimum levels of potassium nitrate and fluoride, reduce the likelihood of residual sensitivity for your patients.
Gluten Free and Kosher Certified
Opalescence products are gluten free and kosher certified, so they fit in with the lifestyles and beliefs of patients from any background.
Perfectly Balanced pH
Because tooth whitening gel can be in the mouth for several hours at a time, it’s important to use a product with a pH that closely matches the natural pH of a patient’s mouth. When the mouth has a lower pH (between 5.5 and 6.5), bacteria can begin to flourish. Opalescence Boost contains added buffers to help maintain neutral pH levels. So, not only can whitening improve the esthetic appearance of your patients’ smiles, it can also provide numerous health benefits for your patients as well.
Sold Directly to Licensed Dental Professionals Only
Opalescence is committed to supporting the dental community. Because tooth whitening is most successful when supervised by a dentist, Opalescence is sold directly to licensed dental professionals only. It’s important for dentists to ensure their patients understand the whitening procedure, have realistic expectations of the outcome, and have an enjoyable experience so they are pleased with the final result.
Easily Combined with Other Opalescence Products for Customized Treatments
While each Opalescence product is effective in a stand-alone whitening regimen, many patients prefer to use a combination of treatments or products to meet their needs. Because every Opalescence product works in combination with the others, it’s easy to create a custom regimen for any patient.
