Interested in advanced laser teeth whitening, but don’t want to spend too much money on it? Before anything else, you should know what advanced laser teeth whitening entails. Basically, this treatment is used to lighten the discoloration of enamel and dentin. Tooth discoloration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine; or from smoking. The aging process can also stain and darken your teeth. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.
Once you’ve decided to get the procedure done, your dentist will do an examination on your teeth and gums to ensure proper health. During your consultation and evaluation, your dentist will also note any existing dental work, such as crowns and veneers, which will not respond to conventional whitening agents.
The procedure begins with a short preparation to cover the lips and gums, leaving the teeth exposed. Then the whitening gel, which works together with the Zoom light to penetrate the teeth and break up the stains and discoloration, will be applied on your teeth. The gel remains in place for 15 minutes while the light is activated. During this time, you can relax, watch TV or listen to music.
You can then check the shade of your teeth after the first session and decide if you would like to have more sessions or not.
To help maintain the whitening effects of the procedure, you will be advised to avoid certain foods and beverages, or consume them in moderation to avoid staining your teeth. This includes tea, coffee, red wine, and cola, as well as smoking.
Some people may experience some sensitivity during and after the procedure, but this always dissipates.
