Does Laser Teeth Whitening Work For Everybody?

By Paul H Logan

There are several different factors that will impact the color of your teeth. Habits such as drinking dark colored drinks such as coffee, sodas, and red wine cause staining, just as smoking does. Many individuals turn to whitening toothpaste, and although this may help slightly, it doesn’t have the same effects as a laser teeth whitening procedures. People who are looking for whiter and brighter smiles are turning to this procedure for a dramatic change to the color of their teeth.

Well, a gel with whitening agents is placed in a tray to fit over the shape of your teeth. Once the tray is in place the gel begins to take action. The different substances begin to break down and start bleaching the colored areas of the teeth. The teeth are not damaged through the process, and other cavity fillings or bonding will not change color. The substance only works on enamel.

Many people trying to decide whether to do the procedure or not, consider safety. Well, this is a very low risk procedure that is quite common. This is a quick procedure that can leave you with teeth that are 2-5 shades lighter.

What’s the difference between a laser treatment, and a regular tray whitening system without the laser? The major difference between both is the fact one is faster than the other. The laser applied to the tray will quicken the results, whereas you’ll have much slower results with an ordinary tray.

The long-lasting impact of the laser treatment depends on how you maintain your teeth. When you avoid dark liquids such as red wine, coffee and sodas you can keep your brighter smile for longer. Also ask your dentist for recommended touch-ups.

People tend to have their teeth whitened in order to enhance their physical appearance. Whiter teeth help reduce the effects of aging; it minimizes the appearance of wrinkles which makes a person look younger and more energetic. Whiter teeth are associated with physical beauty, friendliness and a healthy lifestyle, and enhances your overall image. A stronger smile typically increases self-confidence.

Are there disadvantages to the procedure? You may feel some discomfort while getting the laser teeth whitening treatment, and some sensitivity afterwards. The discomfort usually ends when the laser is turned off. The sensitivity your teeth may experience is typically short term and does not last for long.
