Laser Teeth Whitening
The discoloration of the teeth enamel can have many different causes. Factors such as aging, chemical damage or discoloration can greatly affect its development. Some of the more common causes of teeth discoloration are medications, coffee, tea or cigarettes. At the same time, people who drink significant amounts of cola soft drinks can experience similar staining.
During the procedure, a translucent bleaching gel is applied to the teeth and then laser light is applied. The laser activates the crystals in the gel, which absorb the energy and penetrate the teeth enamel to increase the lightening effect on the teeth. The extent of the whitening depends on the degree of discoloration of your teeth. Generally, one visit is all it takes to obtain a brighter smile. Keep in mind though, the sudden change in the color of your teeth will be noticed by those around you right away.
However, you must remember that laser whitening is not a permanent procedure. Depending on your personal habits and dental hygiene, results can last for one to or more years. Usually, the procedure is very effective and you will definitely be pleased with the results.
