What Does a Laser Teeth Whitening Procedure Involve?

        1.    Preparation  

As part of your preparation, you’re required to replace your toothpaste with the ones for sensitive teeth, at least one week before the procedure.  You should eat before the procedure because you will not be allowed to eat for a few hours after the procedure. 

2.     Procedure 

When the whitening process starts, your dentist will apply bleaching gel to each tooth. After the bleach is applied, the dentist will use a heat generated Laser to accelerate the process and increase the effectiveness of the bleach. The dentist will use a very powerful bleaching gel that the laser activates and develops for fast and more satisfying results.

During the teeth whitening procedure, the dentists are using a hydrogen peroxide gel with concentration levels ranging between 25 to 40 percent. Due to this high concentration levels, your dentist will take special precautions to reduce tooth sensitivity and also to protect gums, lips and other tissues from any damage.
