TEETH WHITENING TREATMENT
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LASER (UV LED) TEETH WHITENING?
Teeth whitening performed by a laser specialist gets teeth brighter, faster. Laser teeth whitening is stronger than commercial at-home kits because of the combination of heat and light used. This process speeds and intensifies the whitening process. Generally, teeth become 5-20 shades brighter while commercial at-home whitening products take 25-30 times longer to produce the results that are achieved with one hour of laser teeth whitening. Multiple sessions are sometimes necessary, depending on the individual's enamel.
WHO CAN UNDERGO TEETH WHITENING?
Unlike other cosmetic procedures, teeth whitening is generally for everyone, as it can dramatically improve your appearance and confidence in a short period of time.
Individuals must be 14 years old or older to undergo the teeth whitening treatment with the use of a UV LED lamp and dental grade gel.
This is because enamel is not fully developed until around the age of 14.
This treatment is not permitted for individuals who have braces, but we can recommend the procedure before or after the placement of braces. However, it is completely safe to whiten while permanent retainers are in place.
Individuals under the age of 18 years old are required to have a parent or guardian accompany them to sign consent forms.
Individuals who are sick, have sores or cuts, gum disease, etc. are not prohibited to have the teeth whitening treatment performed.
Clients that are pregnant or breastfeeding must consult with their doctor prior to scheduling teeth whitening services.
HOW LONG WILL THE WHITENING LAST?
Results vary between individuals depending on diet and lifestyle. Daily cleanings and periodic touch-up treatments are recommended to maintain desired results.
WILL THE TREATMENT WORK ON CROWNS AND FILLINGS?
Yes, laser teeth whitening will remove stains from existing dental work. Our goal is to whiten the existing dental work to the original color of the material used during the time of placement.
