Teeth Whitening Q & A

What makes my teeth yellow?

Many factors contribute to teeth yellowing. Age, certain medications, and things you eat and drink can all play a role. Major culprits also include drinking tea, coffee, red wine and using tobacco products.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening is completely safe, especially when administered by a qualified dental professional such as Dr. Gershfeld. The professionals at his practice offer Opalescence Boost whitening treatments for safe, reliable results. You can decide to have your teeth whitened in one hour-long office appointment or gradually over time with a take-home whitening kit.

In both cases, the Boost whitening solution is completely safe to put on your teeth and in your mouth. The only discomfort you may experience is temporary tooth and gum sensitivity from the bleaching agents.

What is a Boost in-office procedure like?

An in-office whitening procedure could make your teeth up to 10 shades brighter after just one appointment. At your appointment, your gums and lips are covered so they’re protected from the powerful whitening gel.  

An experienced member of Dr. Gershfeld’s staff applies the Boost gel to your teeth. The gel contains an active whitening agent that penetrates your enamel to dissolve discolorations.

You sit with the gel for less than an hour to achieve dramatically whiter teeth. Boost requires no uncomfortable application of a light — which can be hot and bright — to activate the gel, making your experience more pleasant.

What can I expect from a Boost at-home whitening kit?

If you'd rather whiten your teeth gradually over the course of a few weeks, ask Dr.
Gershfeld about an at-home whitening kit. Various professional-grade formulations and flavors are available, so Dr. Gershfeld can help you determine which version is best for you. The formulas are applied using custom-made trays, which are more comfortable and effective than
over-the-counter whitening products.
