Laser Teeth Whitening

Laser Teeth Whitening

You have plenty of options when it comes to brightening your smile, but the best of them is visiting a laser teeth whitening Houston dentist. Over-the-counter whitening treatments are cheaper but ineffective, while pens, strips and trays only provide a surface appearance of whiteness. However, the tooth whitening services at Galleria Dental offer safe, efficient results that will leave you gleaming both inside and out.

Whether you’re looking for a self-esteem boost or a healthier, cleaner smile, there are many reasons to schedule an appointment for laser teeth whitening. In fact, the laser teeth whitening Galleria Dental delivers is among the more popular services among patients. Not only will laser teeth whitening eliminate surface stains on teeth, it’ll naturally change the color of your tooth enamel so that it looks as good as new.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A LASER TEETH WHITENING APPOINTMENT?

In a nutshell, the process is as follows: the dentist applies bleaching gel to your teeth and a laser is used to accelerate the bleaching process. Technically, the use of the word “laser” is a bit inaccurate; rather, the procedure is often called power or light-accelerated bleaching because it uses light energy (such as halogen, LED or plasma arc) to heat the gel and thereby achieve instantaneous results. In addition, your dentist will polish your teeth using pumice so that you’re able to leave our laser teeth whitening Galleria office with your teeth looking their best.

Because a laser teeth whitening procedure can result in initial sensitivity in some patients, your dentist will likely prescribe remedies to reduce post-procedure tenderness. For instance, you may be presented with soft rubber dams to cover your gums. Another option is a desensitizing toothpaste that hardens enamel, or a paste rich in potassium nitrate to relieve or reduce pain in the teeth, gums, lips and other oral tissues. Believe it or not, even regular chewing gum works to produce saliva that coats and soothes sensitive teeth.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO AFTER THE LASER TEETH WHITENING PROCEDURE?

Once you’ve completed the teeth whitening procedure at our Houston dental office, you’ll want to do everything you can to protect your bright white smile. In particular, you’ll want to avoid stain causing substances such as:

  • wine, especially reds
  • coffee or tea, particularly if it’s taken without cream/milk
  • deeply colored foods such as berries and tomato based products
  • foods with artificial sweeteners and hard surfaces such as candy
  • drinks with acidic qualities such as soft drinks and sports drinks
  • All forms of tobacco products such as cigarettes and chewing tobacco

Keep in mind that the aftereffects of teeth whitening are not permanent and can be negatively reversed without the proper upkeep. With that said, little to moderate of the items listed above, along with regular brushing and flossing, can keep your teeth looking their whitest.
