Teeth whitening is extremely popular these days, and there are no shortage of methods available to accomplish it, some more effective than others. Typically, whitening treatments that are over the counter do not offer the kind of results that most of us would like to see. Our Flatlands cosmetic dentist, Dr. Abraham Esses, is happy to be offering laser teeth bleaching as an option. It combines the advantages of providing both effective results and quick results and is a safe, comfortable way to get your teeth whiter and brighter.
For those who are excited by getting more noticeably whiter teeth after just one treatment, laser teeth bleaching by our Flatlands cosmetic dentist may be the ideal way to go. It must be done in our office, however. We do offer at-home teeth whitening for those who prefer that convenience. With laser teeth bleaching, a translucent bleaching gel is applied directly to your teeth. The laser then activates the solution and this results in a much quicker whitening effect as the crystals in the gel absorb the laser’s energy.
So, just how much quicker is it than more traditional teeth whitening methods? Well, the number of sessions required will most certainly depend upon how discolored your teeth are to begin with and how white you want them to get, but most patients see a noticeable difference after just one treatment. This means that even if your teeth are yellow or brown, you can still get them a lot whiter with laser teeth bleaching by our Flatlands cosmetic dentist.
The main drawback to laser teeth bleaching, aside from not being able to do it at home, is that the difference in color will be so quick that it will be obvious to your family, friends, and co-workers. If you would prefer a method that is more gradual so as not to call attention to the fact that you are getting your teeth bleached, this method is not the right one for you. Fortunately, there are others that we offer. The other drawback is that it is a more expensive method than other types of teeth whitening. But deciding the best choice can be done later. Just call us to schedule an appointment with our Flatlands cosmetic dentist so that you can get started on the road to whiter teeth right away.
