Is Laser Teeth Whitening Safe

Is Laser Whitening Safe?

White teeth are indispensable for a beautiful smile. However, most of us observe that our teeth turn yellowish over time because of habits like consuming too much tea, coffee or acidic beverages or smoking cigarettes. Luckily, getting pearly white teeth isn’t difficult anymore thanks to modern technology. You may notice that there are many options when it comes to teeth whitening methods if you research on the internet. You might have come across the laser teeth whitening as you looked through these various options. Laser teeth whitening has become one of the most commonly used teeth whitening methods in dentistry in the recent years. Still, you may have questions about this method. Why is laser teeth whitening treatment so popular? Is it really safe?

How Does It Work?

The first step of the laser teeth whitening procedure is cleaning and removing the plaque from the teeth. We apply a peroxide gel to the teeth after thoroughly cleaning them, and let it set for a while. Once it’s set, it prevents your teeth from stains and gives the maximum cleaning thanks to its strong structure.  While the gel is still on your teeth, we use a laser beam to activate the powers of the peroxide gel. Your teeth will be 5 or 10 shades whiter after the first session. The whole procedure is done within an hour and most patients state that they don’t feel any pain during the session. Some patients may experience tooth sensitivity for a few days after the procedure but it’s not really common.

You should add a whitening toothpaste and mouthwash to your oral care routine, in order to maintain the results that you get from laser teeth whitening treatment. The outcomes of the procedure are permanent as long as you take care of your teeth thoroughly and avoid the overconsumption of certain drinks such as black tea, coffee, soda, etc.  

In conclusion, laser teeth whitening is a safe and quick procedure. It doesn’t damage the teeth and is a convenient treatment even for patients who have tooth sensitivity. The procedure doesn’t cause any pain or bleeding, therefore it doesn’t require the use of anesthesia either. One of its greatest advantages is that it’s the fastest teeth whitening treatment. Laser teeth whitening allows patients to achieve significant results right after the procedure, while other teeth whitening options take more time.
