The season of love is upon us, and with that comes Valentine's Day. It is a day to celebrate love, and what better way to celebrate it than with a bright and healthy smile? If you are thinking about giving yourself and your significant other the gift of a bright, white smile, there are many simple and effective options available today. At Seattle Dental Care, we offer non-toxic, whitening with in-office laser teeth whitening.
Laser teeth whitening is safe and very effective with its capability of lightening teeth by 2-6 shades. The BIOLASE system, which we make use of in our office, has two Epic diode laser systems to whiten teeth. The process uses lasers to whiten the enamel and create a more attractive smile! The process involves applying a whitening gel to the teeth and then activating the gel with a BIOLASE laser system for safe and optimal results. This procedure is non-invasive and allows patients to return to work the same day. The whitening gel used is made of hydrogen peroxide and shows maximum results with no or little sensitivity. This biocompatible teeth whitening option may take 90-120 min in the office to ensure treatment is done slowly, and properly. During the procedure, your gums will also be protected to minimize and prevent them from touching the whitening gel.
After the procedure, your teeth will be whiter but will still appear natural. To help maintain the shade of the teeth, patients are recommended to main their oral hygiene level and rinse after meals, especially after consumption of staining foods and beverages.
A benefit of laser whitening over at-home kits is that your holistic dentist can remove stains from the teeth that individual products cannot remove on their own. Here are some more benefits of laser teeth whitening:
Treatment time: This treatment lasts just 90-120 mins in the office. No need to constantly wear the whitening gel or strip for a prolonged amount of time, which may cause sensitivity to teeth and gum. One session is all you need.
Immediate results: There's no waiting period for laser teeth whitening. You'll be able to show off a beautiful new smile to the world within 2 hours.
Professional and offer biocompatibility: Your holistic dental care team will apply the teeth whitening gel and activate the laser light to help it work faster. This is a safe whitening option because your holistic dental care team is trained in its use and knows how to apply the light properly. Your gums will also be protected during the process.
Long-lasting results: As long as you practice good oral hygiene and avoid staining beverages like coffee or wine, your new smile will stay bright for a long time. You should get touch-up treatments every six months or so to help your smile stay bright and beautiful.
Safe on dental restorations: When compared to traditional whitening methods, patients who need restorative dentistry won't need to worry about having their dental restorations stained or damaged during a whitening procedure.
Be sure to talk to your dentist about all of your possible treatment options to see which one is right for you.
