Lasers have been used in dentistry since 1994 to treat a number of dental problems. We at Dr. Anil Da silvas Clinic recommend you to use laser bleaching if you have a really busy schedule.
Laser Bleaching process lightens discolorations of tooth enamel. This process uses a gel injected into a mouthpiece that is inserted into your mouth over your teeth for about 15 to 20 minutes for teeth whitening.
Laser bleaching systems will remove most stains with a gentle action that whitens your teeth. As the active ingredient (hydrogen peroxide), is broken down, the LED light acts upon the stained organic deposits, which oxidizes them into a white color. This process makes the overall tooth color closer to its natural unstained color. Your tooth structure remains unchanged. Years of clinical tests have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of this system. Over 90% of people treated achieve some level of tooth whitening. Crowns, bridges and fillings do not lighten with dental bleaching. For most people, the treatment can last for a year. Teeth become stained in the first place from consuming foods and beverages. Upon the completion of your initial bleaching process, you are on your way to restoring your teeth to their natural white color. Exposure to foods, drinks (especially coffee, colas and red wines), smoking and other consumables will gradually darken teeth over time again. The regularity of continued bleaching of your teeth should be a decision reached with your technician's advice.
People typically have their teeth whitened to improve their appearance. Whiter teeth are associated with beauty and a healthier lifestyle. When people have a brighter smile, they tend to smile more often and are less self-conscious. In addition, a whiter smile tends to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles, giving way to a more youthful and energetic appearance. Finally, a whiter smile gives people to whom you are speaking a place to focus on and gives you a friendlier appearance.
