No Light Needed
Scientific studies1-7; 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.
Immediate ResultsOffering dramatic results after just two or three 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 DeliveryOpalescence 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.
Powerful FormulaWith 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 ColorThe noticeable color of Opalescence Boost makes it easy to see, which helps during placement and removal.
Superior StabilityOpalescence products are among the most stable whitening products in the industry, maintaining virtually all of its effectiveness over the course of its shelf life.8,9 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% WaterMany 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 CertifiedOpalescence products are gluten free and kosher certified, so they fit in with the lifestyles and beliefs of patients from any background.
Perfectly Balanced pHBecause 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 OnlyOpalescence 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 TreatmentsWhile 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.
Unmatched QualityThe names Opalescence and Ultradent are synonymous with quality. All of our research and development is done in-house. So is our manufacturing and quality control. This allows us to guide and oversee the entire process—from the time an Opalescence innovation is conceived to the time it’s created and packaged for shipping. We have met the strictest standards, and our facility is ISO 9001 certified. All of this ensures every product performs exactly as it’s supposed to for you and for your patients.
Made in the USAOpalescence gels and syringes are manufactured at Ultradent’s facility in Utah. By purchasing products manufactured in the USA, you’re supporting our nation’s economy, and you’re helping to provide jobs for hundreds of Americans who take pride in what they do. Buying from a USA company like Ultradent also means you’ll get fresh formulations right from our own facility—not a product that may have been held up or delayed by a third-party.
Opalescence Boost ProcedureSee a list of products used
Place protective eyeware and clothing on yourself and the patient to prevent contact with whitening agent. Check to see that the syringes are securely attached before mixing. To mix, follow the instructions on the reverse side.
Press all mixed gel into the RED syringe. Separate the two syringes and attach the Micro 20 ga FX® tip or other recommended tip, onto the red syringe. Check the flow on a cotton gauze or pad prior to applying it intraorally. If resistance is met, replace the tip and recheck the flow.
Place Ultradent IsoBlock™ bite block and self-supporting plastic cheek retractors. Completely rinse and air dry teeth and gingiva.
Securely attach a Micro 20 ga tip to OpalDam® resin barrier and check flow. Express a continuous bead along the gingival margin, overlapping approximately 0.5 mm onto the enamel. Begin and finish the bead one tooth beyond the most distal tooth that is being whitened, building the barrier 4–6 mm high and 1.5–2.0 mm thick. Express the resin through any open embrasures.
Light cure the OpalDam Green resin barrier for 20 seconds per arch using a scanning motion. Check the resin cure with an instrument using caution not to disrupt the seal.
Apply a 0.5–1.0 mm thick layer of gel to the labial surface of the tooth. Allow the gel to remain on the teeth for 20 minutes per application.
Suction gel from teeth using the Ultradent® Luer Vac and SST™ tip or a surgical suction tip. Do not use water. Repeat steps 6–7. Stop when desired results are achieved, or if the three applications per visit maximum has been met.
After the final application is complete and all visible gel is removed, thoroughly rinse teeth with an air/water spray and the high volume suction.
Gently slide the tip of a dental instrument beneath the OpalDam resin barrier 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 3–5 days for repeat treatment or dispense take-home whitening treatment.

Opalescence Boost: Simple, Straightforward, Effective
Opalescence Boost Results
“We love brightening smiles with Opalescence Boost. It does a better job than the other in-office whitening systems we’ve used. It’s easy to use, and patients rave about the results.”
How does bleaching work?
The whitening process is possible due to the ability of the carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide to freely pass through enamel and dentin and to permeate to all parts of the tooth.10 These peroxides break down into oxygen radicals, which migrate between the enamel prisms, breaking down any colored molecules that result in tooth discoloration. The structure of the tooth is not altered; the internal tooth color is simply made lighter.
Whitening agents break down into tiny molecules and move in all directions, so even if the entire tooth is not covered with gel, the entire tooth is whitened.11
Numerous studies have proven the effectiveness of peroxides in whitening teeth. Enamel, dentin, existing fillings, and bonding materials are not harmed by the whitening materials.6
Will whitening affect bond strength?
Even though whitening agents release a great amount of oxygen into the tooth, existing bonds are not weakened.12,13
If whitening before bonding, allow a period of 7–10 days after whitening. The high concentration of oxygen in the tooth could significantly and adversely affect polymerization of the resins.14,15
How long do whitening results last?
Whitening results are very stable, but depending on the patient’s nutrition and lifestyle habits, the procedure may need to be redone periodically. Due to the safety of the whitening agents, this should not concern the dentist or patient.
Will whitening cause tooth sensitivity?
Tooth sensitivity is a relatively common side effect of whitening. If sensitivity occurs, it is transient and disappears after the completion of the whitening procedure.
