As we get older, our teeth start to lose their natural whiteness. Habits such as smoking and eating and drinking certain foods and beverages can also speed up the process.

If you’ve noticed that your teeth look more yellow than white, you might want to consider teeth whitening at your Kirkland dentist.  At Jen Kim: Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer Boost teeth whitening for a bright and white smile you can’t help but want to show the world.

What Is Boost?

Boost teeth whitening is an effective professional teeth whitening system, and it is great for those who have sensitive teeth. It also provides dramatic results in a short amount of time. Treatment only takes about an hour!

 If you are worried about sensitivity during the procedure, rest assured that the product’s desensitizing agents enable most patients to tolerate the process comfortably. Of course, if at any time you are uncomfortable, you can let us know—and you can decide whether or not to continue with the procedure.

How Boost Works

We recommend you have a complete teeth cleaning prior to the teeth whitening procedure. Once we are certain your teeth are free of plaque and tarter, we will brush the whitening gel onto your teeth. Care is always taken to avoid getting the agent onto gums and lips. The gel will sit on your teeth for about 15 minutes as a special light is used to activate the gel.

When the time is up, the whitening agent is removed from your teeth, fresh gel is applied and the process is repeated—usually three times.

Dr. Kim will also talk to you about how to maintain your new white smile after undergoing the procedure.
