Laser teeth whitening Adelaide is widely used in both in-clinic and in-home teeth whitening. Its main benefit is the considerable acceleration of the bleaching process, but it also offers professional quality bleaching results.
Teeth whitening using a laser is one of the latest advances in teeth whitening. The use of blue light during whitening treatment can accelerate the results. In fact, what we may think as laser light is, in most cases, a halogen, or LED lamp.
It is widely accepted that a beautiful and bright smile is an essential contributing factor in our social, professional, and personal relationships. Most of us would often be jealous of the white and pearly teeth of celebrities and would like to have an equally attractive smile.
This can be a costly treatment if we opt for whitening in surgery. Back in the day, there was no option using lasers to whiten teeth in a dental office. Today, some homemade teeth whitening kits include a portable blue laser light that is equally effective for the laser light used by dentists.
Professional teeth whitening
People who choose to whiten their teeth professionally are generally aware of the cost and time that the entire process would require.
Before beginning the whitening process, the dentist will always make sure that your teeth are healthy. If fillings are needed, the dentist will tell you that they should be done before the whitening process. After that, the dentist will evaluate how stained and discoloured your teeth are to inform you about the sessions necessary as well as the cost involved.
The conventional procedure can begin with a preliminary cleaning of the teeth and the necessary custom moulding or casting of the mouth trays to accommodate the whitening gel, which needs to be uniformly and adequately applied to the teeth. Personalised mouth trays are essential for safe and effective teeth whitening Adelaide because they fit perfectly to the teeth and do not allow the whitening gel to come into contact with the gums and irritate them. The whitening gel used by most dentists is hydrogen peroxide that can brighten teeth for more than ten shades.
Laser teeth whitening can be much faster and produce better results since light energy can accelerate the whitening process much quicker than ever. A resin-based barrier always shields the gums and exposing the teeth to blue light for approximately 15 minutes. More advanced treatment procedures that involve less heat on the teeth and reduce ultraviolet emissions may allow the teeth to be exposed to blue light for approximately 30 minutes. This can reduce the number of visits to the dentist until the desired results are achieved. For teeth that are not very discoloured, the desired whitening effect can be made in a single session.
