Laser teeth whitening is a highly effective way to whiten your teeth. Laser teeth whitening has become hugely popular and is now as common as having teeth cleaned and polished. It is very safe, non-invasive and highly effective.
Before the treatment, you will have a brief consultation with the dental professional to run over any questions you have about the procedure. Then, your current tooth shade will be assessed and agreed upon.
You will be given some protective eye glasses and a cheek retractor will be placed in your mouth so your teeth are visible. A gingival barrier will be applied to protect your gums. Now you are ready for your treatment. Whitening gels will be applied to the teeth and the laser will be placed in front of your mouth for three sessions of 20 minutes. Once you have finished you will rinse thoroughly and take a look at your new bright white smile!
Tips to prevent tooth discoloration after laser teeth whitening
Once you have completed a whitening treatment, there are a few steps you can take to maintain your whiter smile.
- Avoid stain-causing foods and beverages– coffee, tea, wine, sports drinks, hard candy, berries, and tomato sauces are all foods that can cause tooth discoloration.
- Use a straw– when drinking beverages, use a straw to keep stain-causing dyes away from your teeth.
- Quit smoking– smoking tobacco can cause teeth to become discolored. Eliminating tobacco can help keep your teeth bright.
Detailed aftercare notes and advice are given afterwards. The dental practitioner will follow up with you to ensure you are happy with your results.
