What to Expect
An in-office laser treatment uses the heat from a laser to activate a specially-formulated whitening gel. The gums are first protected from the gel with a special barrier. Then, the whitening gel is then applied to the teeth and the laser to breaks down the stains that have diminished teeth’s whiteness. The entire process takes around one hour and patients immediately notice that their teeth are several shades whiter after just one treatment. Subsequent treatments could be needed to maintain whiteness.
Compared to over-the-counter whitening products and professional home whitening treatments, the results of laser treatments last the longest at 3 – 4 years. In some cases, results can last more than 5 years. Patients should follow a good home health oral care routine, including brushing at least twice a day, flossing, and using mouthwash. Additionally, patients should continue to visit their dentist twice a year for a professional dental cleaning and tooth polishing.
