Perfectly clean white teeth are possible in just an hour or two thanks to laser whitening techniques. As technology has advanced, using lasers on the teeth is now a safe everyday procedure that can be carried out by a qualified dentist.
To protect teeth, gums and sensitive tissue from the bleaching agent the dentist will use:
- Rubber dams on the gums
- Retractors for the cheeks
- A low heat laser
Usually the only side-effect is tooth sensitivity and that “normally resolves itself after a few days”. More information about teeth whitening can be found at http://yourdentalhealthresource.com/does-laser-teeth-whitening-damage-teeth/.
