Laser Teeth Bleaching Benefits
By Mike Zanov
One of the most frequently asked questions is - are there any benefits to laser teeth whitening? We are to confess that there have been no independent studies which have to a common conclusion that laser tooth whitening will help patients attain their natural whiteness potential more powerfully than if applying other whiteners. We do say that appliance of laser teeth whitening method drastically reduces bleaching time and sensitivity.
You won't be shocked if we say that all teeth bleaching methods made a long way in the past ten years. Dental whitening office process also known as Laser Bleaching (or Power Bleaching, Argon Bleaching, etc.) which is extremely popular these days is a significantly shorter process than other tooth bleaching methods at the beginning of the whitening era.
NASA scientists have developed this exclusive technique and it has become the much loved teeth whitening method of dentists as well as of patients. You may ask why this has become the dentists' favorite and the answer is as this as simple - it's less time-consuming and 2 hours is quite sufficient for the procedure and no follow-up treatment is really needed.
Not less than 93% of dentists and patients say this technique to be of satisfaction result and this procedure is more preferred by patients who are not into the overnight-long wearing of the mouthpiece used in home teeth whitening process. If compared to other treatment methods, laser teeth whitening results last longer if compared to conservative treatments. The chief disadvantage of laser teeth whitening is its high cost.
The principle of the laser tooth whitening method is the following - dental hygienist puts a rubber seal around your teeth to defend patients' gums, then concentrated peroxide gel is applied onto patients' teeth and the whitening procedure is accelerated with the use of laser - for the next hour you will sit in a dental chair with your mouth wide open, while a special light, usually argon or mixture of other gases, is radiated onto the teeth whitening paste that in turn chemically interacts with the peroxide and fulfills the teeth whitening process in as short a time period as possible.
As a final remark we enumerate the advantages of laser-bleaching techniques, they are the following: uniform color, less sensitivity due to less heat, and less hand time needed for application. And as you know that nothing is ideal this method has some drawbacks: it is needed to follow up with home matrix bleaching, and it is a lot more costly.
