Infinite White Background Question

Say you have found the perfect exposure for your subject (say by using f/8, ISO400, 1/60th); you are absolutely content with the subject and you don't want to change the camera settings, but the background isn't pure white. It is close and you have tried to adjust it in photoshop, but it makes the subject look out of place with respect to the background. Also, there's nothing one can do with how close the lights are (they are already as close as they can be).

Would one's last recourse be adding more lighting to the background?

I'm using a pure white background paper and I have 800 watts on it and they're close.

What would you do? Am I missing something?
