Laser Teeth Whitening

by Mark Freeman

Copyright 2005

There's something about a big smile. Especially a big smile

that shows beautiful white teeth. A bright white smile says

"healthy", and admit it, people with beautiful white teeth

somehow even look happier. A whiter smile can make a person

more confident and outgoing in social situations. Unfortunately

most of us don't have the whitest smile that we could. Years of

drinking dark colored beverages such as coffee, tea, soda, and

red wine, smoking, and aging take their toll on the color of

tooth enamel. The great news is that today anyone can have a

dazzling white smile.

Teeth whitening has become the most common form of cosmetic

dentistry performed. It's a very simple and fairly inexpensive

way to greatly improve your smile. There are several ways to

whiten your teeth depending on the amount of money you want to

spend, and your level of patience. You can choose from tooth

whitening gels and whitening toothpaste, bleaching strips,

bleaching gel with a fitted mouth tray, or laser teeth

whitening. Laser teeth whitening is sometimes called in-office

bleaching. Of all these different types of alternatives laser

teeth whitening is the fastest way to a white smile, it's also

the most expensive. A one hour teeth whitening session

generally runs around $600.00.

Laser teeth whitening is considered the top of the line

treatment. It takes about one hour. The dentist applies a

bleach solvent containing hydrogen peroxide to the teeth. You

will find that hydrogen peroxide is found in all teeth

whitening products. The higher the amount of hydrogen peroxide

the faster the tooth whitening will take place. Once the bleach

is on the teeth the teeth are subjected to a light source,

usually a laser. This laser activates the hydrogen peroxide.

This application is left on your teeth for twenty minutes. This

process is then repeated two more times before you are done.

Of course, the results you receive from any tooth whitening

system will fade over time. Trying to avoid dark colored drinks

and not smoking will help you enjoy the results longer.
