What Is Laser Teeth Whitening?
Laser teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to whiten your teeth without damaging them. Here’s what to expect during the teeth whitening procedure:
- Our dentist will first protect your lips and gums, then apply a bleaching gel to the surface of your teeth.
- They will then use a laser to activate the gel's whitening agent to brighten your teeth rapidly.
- Once the whitening process is complete, the dentist will polish your teeth to bring them to a shine and send you home with a list of aftercare instructions to make sure your smile stays white and you don’t have any discomfort or sensitivity.
What to Avoid After Laser Teeth Whitening
Once you have achieved a whiter smile through our laser teeth whitening process, you’ll want to keep them that way. Make sure to consume the following stain-causing substances in moderation, or avoid them altogether:
- Red wine
- Coffee and tea
- Berries and tomatoes
- Artificial sweeteners
- Hard candies
- Acidic drinks, such as soft drinks or energy drinks
- Tobacco products
Regular brushing and flossing will help to keep your teeth as white as possible as well. Laser teeth whitening is not permanent and may require additional visits over time to maintain desired brightness.
How Is Professional Laser Teeth Whitening Different from At-Home Whitening Kits?
At-home bleaching kits require you to wear trays with a bleaching agent for an extended period of time. When provided by a cosmetic dentist who knows how to take care to protect your teeth and gums, laser teeth whitening provides a more effective brightening solution in as little as 30-90 minutes.
Laser teeth whitening does more than reduce stains on the surface of your teeth. The combination of bleaching hydrogen peroxide gel and laser provides a more robust and deep whitening. It whitens and brightens your tooth enamel, removing stains deep inside your teeth.
