Why are more and more people choosing laser teeth whitening?

March 14, 2023

Laser teeth whitening is a quick and effective way to whiten teeth.

Laser teeth whitening – how exactly does it work? 

This procedure uses a semiconductor laser to stimulate a whitening gel applied to the surface of the teeth. The laser selectively targets pigment particles in the teeth, catalysing a reaction with the gel to remove tartar, plaque, pigmentation, nicotine stains and other discolorations, resulting in whiter and brighter-looking  teeth.

Which types of dental discoloration are typically treatable with laser teeth whitening procedures?

Yellow teeth

Laser teeth whitening is effective in treating dark stains caused by tetracycline and deep smoke stains on yellowed teeth. It is painless and has no harmful effects on teeth or gums.

Tetracycline teeth

Tetracycline teeth, a type of tooth staining, can result from the overuse of tetracycline antibiotics during infancy, pregnancy, or lactation. However, laser teeth whitening can be an effective solution for whitening teeth affected by tetracycline staining.

Advantages of laser teeth whitening

  1. Safety: The procedure takes less than 30 minutes to complete, with no more than 1 minute of exposure per tooth, greatly reducing the risk of overheating or sensitivity.
  2. Painless: The procedure is painless and does not require anesthesia. After treatment, the teeth may feel slightly sensitive, but this typically resolves within a few hours.
  3. Efficiency: Laser teeth whitening is 29.5 times more efficient than using bleaching gel alone. The treatment handle is designed according to ergonomic principles and can treat four teeth at a time, with a whitening effect that lasts 3-5 years.
  4. Convenience: Laser teeth whitening is computer-controlled and easy to operate.
