Tooth whitening is a fast and easy way to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Whether you have mild to moderate stains, tooth whitening treatment is a cosmetic dental procedure that was designed to brighten, lighten and improve the overall look of your teeth. Laser Teeth Whitening Technology is a powerful way to enhance your appearance so you can smile with confidence.
Why is tooth whitening beneficial?
Everyday life can have a surprising impact on your teeth. As we age, our teeth naturally darken and appear more yellow and grey. This is because the tooth enamel becomes thin with use, wear and tear and aging. The dentin layer that sits just beneath the enamel becomes increasingly more visible as the enamel thins. This layer is a darker, yellow color and it causes our teeth to look dark and stained. Certain foods and beverages can also stain your teeth prematurely. This includes coffee, red wine, and chewing tobacco.
Most stains and yellowing can be dramatically improved with a tooth whitening treatment. Whiter teeth can also help you feel more confident in both, your professional and personal life.
How does laser teeth whitening work?
Laser treatment is a new and innovative method of teeth whitening. It makes treatment times faster and can provide stunning, enhanced results. We use a laser called Biolase EPIC, this is a specialized tool designed specifically for precision. The laser works in conjunction with a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. Concentrated laser energy is used to heat the whitening gel, which activates the treatment process. The laser ensures that the treatment is done evenly for all of the teeth and it allows for a powerful level of whitening. Using Biolase EPIC, your teeth will be 4-6 shades lighter after treatment. Treatment time only lasts 20 minutes with laser whitening. This is much faster than traditional gel whitening treatments and allows you to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile quickly and efficiently. It is an excellent procedure to have before a special event, an important meeting or a wedding, it’s fast, easy and effective.
Our whitening services include:
- In-Office Tooth Whitening – in-office tooth whitening utilizes laser technology and prescription hydrogen peroxide gel to whiten your teeth quickly and effectively. Whitening can be 4-6 shades lighter and usually, only 1-3 appointments are needed to achieve a patient’s desired results.
- Home Bleaching and Whitening Kits – Your dentist can provide you with custom bleaching trays. These can be used at home to keep your teeth white between appointments.
- Over-the-Counter Bleaching – Your local pharmacy most likely offers tooth whitening treatments and kits. These can be effective over time, however, the percentage of hydrogen peroxide is usually less. This means that over the counter products can take longer to see results. We recommend Opalescence Supreme prescription level formula which has up to 15% hydrogen peroxide and contains fluoride.
Whitening treatments can make a fast and considerable impact on your overall appearance. They require maintenance and are no substitute for brushing and flossing and your oral health routines should always be maintained after treatments.
