Laser Teeth Whitening
Many people want a beautiful, white smile, but whitening products can take too much time and effort for those leading busy lives. Whitening toothpastes, gels, and trays can also cause some people’s lips and mouth to feel excessively dry and may increase tooth sensitivity. But thanks to breakthrough technology, laser tooth whitening can reverse years of stains for a bright, gorgeous smile with little time and no discomfort.
How It Works
Brentwood Dental Group uses a high intensity bleach gel in combination with an LED light to significantly brighten teeth. Our laser tooth whitening procedure begins with placing the gel on teeth. The LED light then activates the gel in a gentle, non-invasive manner. During this time, you just sit back and relax, and by the time your visit is done, you’ll have a brilliant smile you can’t wait to show off.
As the light activates the gel, the carbamide and hydrogen peroxide in the gel are broken down. The combination of heat, oxygen, and light work together to oxidize organic deposits, leaving your teeth a whiter color. This procedure brings your tooth closer to its natural, unstained color without compromising your tooth’s health or structure.
You can get a whiter smile in just half an hour. We typically divide this time into two 15 minute sessions during a single visit. The break between allows for maximum light exposure and gel concentration, but provides a necessary recess to ensure your gums do not become irritated by the process. We can adjust the intensity of whitening for patients with tooth sensitivity. Heavy stains may require some additional treatments. We work with each patient to determine the right treatment approach to achieve your desired shade.
The exact results depend on the health and condition of a patient’s teeth. The darkness of stains, desired level of whiteness, and health of teeth all determine the results of treatment, but most patients see results ranging from 6 to 12 times whiter than before.
Tooth whitening with laser technology has been proven extremely safe and effective. Most patients report no pain or discomfort at any stage of treatment.
