Laser Teeth Whitening For Quicker Results

Published:June 29th, 2010

Among the teeth whitening procedures available today, laser teeth whitening is one that can remove the stains on your teeth and help you get a bright smile that will make you feel more confident.

One such procedures involves using a laser with a whitening gel. The gel is applied to your teeth and a laser light activates the crystals that absorb energy from the light and penetrate the teeth enamel. The time it takes for such a procedure to be effective depends on the degree of discoloration of your teeth. It is a quick procedure but it is more expensive and dental insurance typically does not cover the cost.

However, laser teeth whitening can restore the teeth to their original colour. There is no risk for the enamel of your teeth. Laser teeth whitening creates teeth sensitivity but only for a short period of 24 to 48 hours after the treatment. The advantage is that your teeth will be whiter for a period of up to 24 months after a laser teeth whitening procedure.

Laser whitening can make your teeth five or six shades lighter, so this makes the procedure more efficient when compared to other methods.

The laser activation can trigger a quicker reaction of the peroxide whitener. So both the speed of the whitening process is increased and the efficiency of the whitening results.

Laser teeth whitening is usually performed in your dentist’s office. Professional teeth whitening procedures performed by dentists involve a higher concentration whitener in a shorter period of time. The products that are available for at home teeth whitening have a lower concentration of the whitener and should be used over an extended period of time.

So if you are interested in getting quicker results, laser teeth whitening might be the right choice for you.
