Laser Teeth Whitening
What is Laser Teeth Whitening?
Laser teeth whitening is a professional teeth whitening procedure performed using advanced laser technology by us at The Hillside Smile Dental Care. People undergo laser teeth whitening to cosmetically improve the appearance of the mouth, teeth and smile. Many drinks and foods we consume on a day to day basis can cause our dental enamels to turn to shades of yellow that cannot always be treated at home and as a result can decrease a person’s confidence. Today, a number of teeth whitening products are sold in stores around the United States, but none prove to be as efficient as laser teeth whitening by us at The Hillside Smile Dental Care. We offer long-lasting, safe and certified dental laser technology, providing personalized treatment plans to help patients regain their self-esteem through a beautiful, sparkling white smile. The Hillside Smile Dental Care promotes product safety and efficacy as a principal for good results with little to no side effects.
What is the procedure involved in Laser Teeth Whitening at The Hillside Smile Dental Care?
Laser teeth whitening is an in-office dental procedure at The Hillside Smile Dental Care and is carried out by us. Although local anesthesia is not necessary except for pain-sensitive patients, sedation may be provided to ease patients from anxiety over a choking sensation throughout the procedure. In order to achieve better results, we may offer patients to have their teeth professionally cleaned and polished prior to undergoing laser treatment. Before administering the laser, the gums will be covered with a protective barrier for safety. A whitening gel or bleach is applied on the surface of each tooth individually, followed by heat being generated by the laser to activate and quickly process the speed of the whitening agent removing the stains from each tooth. Reliant on the patient’s needs of how white they desire their teeth to be, the whitening agent will be applied for a second time and the procedure repeated with the laser for a second time again. After completion of the procedure, which tends to last approximately one hour, the protective barrier is removed from the gums and the mouth is thoroughly rinsed.
What is the aftercare required for Laser Teeth Whitening?
As with all dental procedures, in order for patients to prolong the results of their laser teeth whitening treatment patients are encouraged to avoid consuming staining foods, liquids (e.g., tea, coffee, red wine) and certain products, such as, tobacco. It is common for patients to feel some sensitivity after treatment which usually subsides within a week.
The Hillside Smile Dental Care recommends that patients maintain regular oral hygiene at home by brushing and flossing their teeth twice a day as well as paying us an annual dental visit for a professional cleaning to control any onset of the teeth staining. We devise personalized treatment plans and discuss all expenses to commit to every patient’s needs.
