Laser whitening is a safe and efficient solution to stained teeth. Laser whitening makes teeth immediately whiter. Teeth may become up to 10 shades whiter.
Laser whitening treatment is ideal for whitening naturally yellow dentine and teeth with damaged enamel. It can be used to treat various dental issues from dark canines to teeth that have been darkened by root canal therapy or trauma. The method does not change the natural structure of the tooth.
The service process
Gums and mucous membranes are protected carefully before the whitening. In laser whitening, the whitening process is exceptionally enhanced during the procedure in both the enamel and the dentine, making the whitening of the teeth even quicker and safer (traditional light methods only work on the enamel).
Laser whitening is carried out on as extensive an area as possible (total of ten upper and lower teeth). Extending the procedure to the first molars prevents the so-called tunnel effect where the whitened area appears too narrow when smiling.
The process consists of three sets of treatments during a single appointment. Laser whitening is always carried out individually, using a specially designed whitening agent and a safe laser device.
Dental whitening is based on hydrogen peroxide, the effect of which is enhanced with a laser lamp. The results of the laser whitening can be enhanced and maintained with at-home whitening.
Instructions for laser whitening patients:
Before laser whitening:
If your teeth are sensitive, we recommend using toothpaste for sensitive teeth for two weeks before the dental whitening. Avoid drinking acidic beverages, such as wine and juice, for two days before the whitening.
Tartar and superficial stains are removed. Do not use mouthwash (Listerine, chlorhexidine) for two days before dental whitening. We recommend having something to eat before arriving for your appointment as food or drink other than water is not allowed for two hours after the procedure. We also recommend bringing a bottle of water with you.
Immediately after the laser whitening:
Do not eat or drink anything except water for two hours.
48 hours after the laser whitening:
Do not smoke or use snuff.
Do not use toothpaste that is coloured or contains sodium bicarbonate.
Do not use lipstick.
Do not eat or drink staining or acidic foods or drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine or other alcoholic products, cola, chocolate, salty liquorice, liquorice, soy sauce, ketchup, beetroot, curry, blueberries, carrots, oranges, grapefruit, soda, etc.
2 weeks after the laser whitening:
Do not use colouring, chemical mouth rinses or mouthwash such as chlorhexidine or Listerine.
There may also be differences in the shades of your teeth (e.g. white patches caused by fluorosis). Any shade differences will even out within two weeks of the whitening treatment.
When booking an appointment, please observe the following:
A tooth whitening assessment appointment (free of charge) is required if the customer is new and the dental hygienist is not yet familiar with the customer’s teeth.
Receding gums, implants, laminates or retainers installed on the inner surface of the teeth during orthodontic treatment will not prevent whitening.
Whitening does not have an effect on dental repairs such as fillings, crowns and veneers.
Dental whitening is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women. We also do not perform dental whitening on patients under the age of 18.
