What is Laser Teeth Whitening Treatment and How Does It Works?
Laser teeth whitening is a process of improving the natural color of the teeth and restoring its surface by using bleaching/whitening gel and laser to remove dirt, debris, and deep stains from the tooth surface. The number of laser teeth whitening sessions depends upon the severity of your teeth discoloration.
The process of laser teeth whitening starts with a photograph of your teeth. The photograph of your teeth is used to examine your teeth and gums condition. It is also used to figure out the stains. After evaluating the teeth, our cosmetic dentist may recommend professional cleaning before starting the laser whitening process cleaning if needed. The coating of food that you eat and other substances will be removed in the teeth cleaning process. After that, the laser teeth whitening process begins. First, the dental professional will place a rubber or plastic guard in the patient’s mouth to keep the mouth open. After that, a protective substance is applied over the gums to protect them from bleaching or whitening gel. The protective substance on gums also prevents gum irritation, burning, and other side effects. Once, the protective layer forms, the dentist will start applying the bleaching gel to the teeth. After that, the dentist starts using narrow laser light to activate the whitening gel by heating it up. The heated whitening gel will penetrate the enamel and start doing its work by removing the stains. After some time, the left whitening gel will be removed by using a small vacuum. The process of teeth whitening will be repeated by the dentist up to 3-4 times until you get your desired shade. In the last step, the dentist will rinse the patient’s (your) mouth and remove the protective substance which was applied on the gums before. The entire process of laser teeth whitening takes around 30 to 60 minutes to complete.
