With laser teeth whitening, Dr. King utilizes a special tool and whitening formula. The process starts with the application of a whitening gel to the surface of the teeth. This gel is the heart of the whitening process, because it’s activated by a specific type of light, one with a wavelength of 480-520 nanometers. The combination of the whitening gel and the laser accelerator penetrate deep into enamel on the teeth to eliminate staining.
Laser teeth whitening treatment offers you a speedier procedure than other whitening procedures. Since this process uses a special whitening agent and activating light, it speeds up the process dramatically, while still offering stellar results that keep teeth looking good and healthy at the same time.
For best results, it’s recommended that you have three individual laser teeth whitening sessions with Dr. King. That is the initial treatment because most people have a lifetime of stains and discoloration to remove. Each session takes 20 minutes to complete. Dr. King provides a quiet and comfortable place to relax in during the session, so the experience is a positive one. Once complete, you can enjoy teeth that are anywhere from five to 14 shades brighter.
Laser teeth whitening is a safe practice when conducted by an experienced professional and with quality products. The light used from the laser is a cold light, as well, so there is no risk of burning or tissue damage. Some people may notice mild gum irritation from the bleaching solution or sensitivity to teeth, but that’s temporary.
This form of teeth whitening is popular among busy professionals for a reason. It’s just as effective as the longer treatment but fast and safe. Most consider this an investment in their oral health, too. Clean, healthy teeth mean fresher breath and overall better hygiene. Combined with a strategic dental care program, teeth whitening offers a noticeable improvement.
