Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that helps whiten and enhance the color of your stained teeth. Conventional methods of whitening teeth would involve using whitening gels or strips. With advances in dental science, clinical researchers have discovered a modified way of improving the shade of your teeth with the laser bleaching process.
What is laser bleaching?
Laser bleaching is a cost-effective and non-invasive method of whitening the teeth. The procedure is primarily performed in a dentist's office and would be done in a series of steps.
What is the procedure involved in laser bleaching?
The process involved in bleaching teeth is relatively simple and does not require surgical intervention. Only in certain rare cases would the patient require the need for anesthesia. Laser bleaching is generally performed in a dentist's office and is different from other whitening procedures. The procedure involves applying a bleaching agent on the surface of teeth that would be activated by a beam of laser light. The bleach used in laser bleaching is a hydrogen peroxide gel that differs in concentration levels. It helps protect the lips, gums, and other tissues. The hydrogen peroxide molecules of the bleaching agent would decompose into water and oxygen molecules. The active oxygen molecules would work on the stain and remove them from the enamel’s surface, thereby enhancing the color of the teeth.
