Laser teeth whitening is an advanced whitening technique that uses a special gel and laser energy to quickly remove stains from the surface of teeth. This bleaching process is usually very effective and can remove extrinsic and intrinsic stains.
Patients prefer laser teeth whitening over conventional whitening methods because the lasers can target problem areas more precisely and provide more dramatic results. To determine if this whitening method is right for you, schedule an appointment with our dentist at Bo Macdonald DDS Dentistry.
How Does Laser Teeth Whitening Work?
First, our dentist will apply a special hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth. The gel is only applied to the surface of your teeth, so the treatment will not cause any irritation or harm to the inside of your mouth. Then, a laser is used to activate the gel, causing it to break down and form oxygen bubbles that penetrate the enamel of your teeth to break up the stains and whiten your smile.
This minimally invasive treatment can whiten your teeth up to eight shades in just one appointment. If you want an even brighter smile after your first session, you can schedule further treatments with our dentist to enhance your new look!
The Benefits of Laser Teeth Whitening
There are certain benefits to choosing laser whitening over other types of teeth whitening systems. For instance, many patients find that laser teeth whitening is more efficient than other solutions such as whitening trays. The laser activates the bleaching agent in the whitening gel and allows it to quickly penetrate the enamel of your teeth. This makes laser whitening more effective at removing stains from the surface of the teeth than mere bleaching agents.
Laser whitening is also safer than traditional whitening solutions such as whitening trays, which can cause irritation to the gums. The laser targets the treatment area precisely and causes no pain or discomfort during or after the treatment. Laser treatments are also faster than other cosmetic dental procedures, such as veneers and crowns. Most patients can expect to see visible improvement in their teeth in just one treatment session!
