Pros of Laser Teeth Whitening

In true laser teeth whitening, the laser is required to activate the chemicals in the whitening gel, producing faster and more effective results.

In whitening techniques using lights, including those products you can use at home, the light only functions to produce heat. When whitening gel containing peroxide chemicals heats up, it works faster.

Pros of Laser Teeth Whitening

When a properly trained and certified dentist performs laser teeth whitening, there are several advantages.

  • Noticeable results develop within a single laser teeth whitening session.
  • The dentist does all the work in the office, so the patient does not have to use any materials or techniques at home.
  • The whitening results are faster than those achieved by take-home products.
  • Having a dentist perform the procedure reduces the risk of complications like soft tissue burns or damage to the nerves inside the teeth.
  • It is one of the fastest ways to get noticeably whiter teeth; the effects should be visible within a few hours after the first appointment.
  • Removes tough stains that other whitening treatments can’t.
  • Some types of laser teeth whitening treatments can be used to lighten just one or a few heavily stained teeth.
  • Laser teeth whitening is an easy and non-invasive procedure.
  • There are no needles involved and there is generally no pain.
  • It’s an extremely affordable procedure most professional dentists should be able to provide some form of laser teeth whitening.
  • The results of the laser whitening can last a long time, from 6 months to two years if you take proper care of your teeth.
