Posted on 6/19/2023 by Evan
Facts About Laser Teeth WhiteningTo its name, laser teeth whitening entails using a beam of high-intensity light with a bleaching gel to whiten one's teeth. It's a procedure done at the dentist's office, unlike other at-home whitening procedures. Laser whitening procedures are done on patients with discolored and stained teeth to uplift their aesthetics.

Tooth Sensitivity

The procedure uses potent bleaching agents that enhance its efficiency. However, the bleaching solutions cause sensitivity in the patients within the first two days, one may experience sharp pain when taking hot or cold foodstuffs. Dentists claim the sensitivity should last for a couple of days and vanish. For patients living with sensitive teeth, during the consultation they should open up about their current situations, this will enable the dentist to advise on the best whitening method to take.

Damage From Excessive Whitening

While teeth whitening procedures uplift and brighten one's smile, when done in excess may lead to permanent damage to your teeth. You may have brittle or translucent teeth, which are prone to dental diseases. Whitening procedures should never be overdone, and you should follow the dentist's instructions to the latter to achieve the desired results, as damages done by laser whitening procedures are impossible to undo.

Gum Irritation

Whitening solutions in your mouth mean additional effects on gums and other mouth parts. You may experience sensitivity in equal measure to the teeth' after the procedures.
