Laser Teeth Whitening

What Is Laser Teeth Whitening?

While it's not plastic surgery, laser teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic dental procedure that shows significant improvement to your teeth' brightness — up to 10 shades brighter. Specially formulated Whitening Gel is applied to each tooth while a laser generates heat that enhances its effectiveness, which ultimately speeds up the process, leading to quick, dramatic results.

 

How Does Laser Whitening Work?

It's not a long process, but it is precise. Check out the step-by-step breakdown below:

  • Prep:

    • The color and shade of your existing teeth are determined using a shade indicator.

    • A picture of your teeth is taken to see a before/after comparison.

       

  • Procedure:

    • A protective coating is placed over the gums to protect your mouth and gums from the bleaching gel.

    • A Specially formulated Whitening Gel is applied to the front of your teeth to keep the solution on the surfaces of your teeth.

    • Patients must sit still as a bleaching light or laser will shine onto the teeth to activate the bleaching process.

    • Some whitening systems consist of three 15-minute sessions in one sitting.

    • The gauze and the liquid dam materials will be monitored between sessions to ensure that the mouth's soft tissues are safe and dry.

  • Post:

    • After the treatment, avoid certain food and drinks for a few days as the pores of enamel are more susceptible to absorbing stains (lipstick, coffee, soda, etc.) and sensitive to cold food items (ice cream, cold beverages, etc.)

    •  

There's no doubt that laser teeth whitening is the most expensive of all teeth whitening options, but for a good reason. It's quick and effective results are a combination that's tough to beat.

 

How Do You Maintain Your Laser Teeth Whitening?

You got your teeth laser whitened. You love it. But according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, professional teeth whitening can last six months to two years. So how do you keep those pearly whites so white? Here are a few specific things you can do to maintain your new bright smile:

 

  • Avoid dark-colored beverages and foods that cause staining over time

  • Drink with a straw to reduce the effect of staining beverages

  • Brush with whitening toothpaste to help whiten and protect your teeth

  • Visit your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings

  • Schedule a follow-up treatment every six months if necessary

  •  

What Are My Alternatives to Laser Teeth Whitening?

Perhaps you prefer passing on the laser in your mouth option. There's a variety of options to choose from. There are two categories for non-laser whitening: over-the-counter (OTC) products or professional systems. The latter can be applied either at home or in-office and achieve better results than OTC due to higher percentages of the bleaching agent and their application method. OTC products come in a variety of forms:

  • Toothpaste and rinses

  • Gel used in trays

  • Whitening strips

  • Whitening chewing gum

  • Whitening paint-on gel

  •
