Lasers Bring Next-Generation Technology To Teeth Whitening
The quest for the perfect smile doesn’t stop at just straight teeth, it matters how white your teeth are, too. For decades people have turned to whitening strips, special bleaching toothpastes, and even charcoal to brighten their smiles, but nothing compares to the results you get by having your teeth professionally whitened.
Now there are two professional choices to get the job done: whitening trays or a new technique that uses lasers. Yep. Lasers. With whitening trays, we take an impression of your teeth to create custom trays designed to fit snugly to your teeth so that the bleaching gel can work its magic. Typically, people wear the trays for an hour or two at a time until their teeth are the color they want.
With laser teeth whitening, the process is sped up by the heat of the lasers so that you see instant results – sometimes even up to 5 or 6 shades lighter in as little as an hour. There may be some tooth sensitivity with laser whitening. That’s why we use soft dams to protect gums as well as desensitizing pastes and fluoride. The procedure typically costs between $500 and $1000 a sessions, but with OrthoPros, we offer a program for whitening for just $350 a session.
Laser teeth whitening isn’t for everyone. It’s important to have us examine your teeth beforehand to determine if you’re a good candidate for this type of procedure. If you are a good candidate, laser teeth whitening is a great way to get instant results that you’ll be proud to show off.
