Why Choose Laser Teeth Whitening?

Most Americans have or will consider professional teeth whitening treatment at some point. As one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures, teeth whitening can enhance your entire appearance and give your confidence and self-esteem a boost in as little as one office visit. 

At Manhasset Dental Arts, our dentists Dr. Elizabeth Abrams and Dr. Michael Abrams and our dentistry team offer cosmetic and family dentistry services at our office in Manhasset, New York.

The advantages of laser teeth whitening

While over the counter teeth whitening products can help, they won’t deliver the same results as professional treatments and may contain harsh chemicals and ingredients that can strip away at your tooth enamel over time. 

As the enamel layer gets thinner (which is also a natural part of the aging process), your teeth are more vulnerable to stains and discoloration from everyday habits like drinking tea or coffee or enjoying some red wine with dinner. 

Laser teeth whitening is a non-invasive and gentle procedure that removes stains and whitens your teeth without damaging enamel or gum tissue. The heat from the lasers amplifies the effects of the whitening agent to boost the whitening process. 

Laser teeth whitening usually requires two to four sessions depending on your circumstances. Each visit ranges from 15 minutes to an hour, so you can fit the sessions in on your lunch break or in between errands. 

To get started, you’ll undergo a screening and dental exam to check for any oral health issues like cavities or signs of gum disease. If you need any dental work like fillings, they’ll be taken care of first before the whitening treatments. Teeth whitening treatments can temporarily cause or heighten tooth sensitivity, so let our dentists know if you have any issues during your consultation. 

The gums are covered and protected during the treatment, and you can choose to whiten all or just a few of your teeth during your sessions. Once the session is over, you’re free to go and won’t have to worry about any healing or downtime. 

Unlike standard teeth whitening treatments that offer an in-office or at-home option, laser teeth whitening can only be performed at the dentist’s office. Like all professional teeth whitening treatments, laser treatments offer more pronounced and longer-lasting results than over the counter options. 

For the best and longer-lasting results, maintain a good oral hygiene routine, be sure to keep all of your follow-up appointments, and try to limit exposure to food and drinks that are known to stain your teeth.
