    I had a cleaning today and asked my dentist for a referral to get my teeth whitened (I wanted to treat myself for another 4.0 semester!) anyways, he said he actually does teeth whitening in his office. He uses Opalescence Boost. I looked on some websites and it looks like it might be better than Zoom or Britesmile.

    I guess my biggest concern is that it is so cheap. ($350 for both arches) I've seen upwards of $800 for other methods.

    I did find some (obviously biased) research studies on the official Opalescence site.  Supposedly, other methods of in-office whitening can damage the pulp in your teeth overtime because of the light used. Apparently, this form doesn't use a light to activate the bleaching formula.

    Anyone ever had this in-office form of teeth whitening done before?
