Teeth that have been stained or darkened by food, tobacco use, age, medications or injury can be lightened and brightened by means of a non-invasive process known as laser teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening or bleaching simply refers to any process that will make the teeth appear whiter. While there are many over the counter options for teeth whitening, the most effective and safest teeth whitening systems are the professional strength ones available at the dentist’s office. A dental professional whitening system offers a higher concentration of whitening components (hydrogen peroxide) and delivers them to the teeth in the most efficient manner to achieve optimal results. At our office we offer the “Futura 2400 with Polaoffice 38% hydrogen peroxide” professional laser teeth whitening system. Our teeth whitening system has been shown to produce the best results compared to other systems out on the market.
Some patients may not be candidates for teeth whitening due to excessive plaque/calculus build up, cavities present, excessive gum recession, smoker, hypersensitive teeth etc.. Therefore, a prior consultation is required.
