Laser teeth whitening is a bleaching process widely used around the world to lighten discoloration of teeth. Tooth discoloration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine; or from smoking. The aging process also can stain and darken your teeth. The chair-side laser teeth whitening procedure accelerates the bleaching process.
Before deciding whether teeth whitening is right for you, the dentist will conduct a examination of your teeth and gums to ensure proper health, as well as talk with you about your oral hygiene and lifestyle habits to determine if you will benefit from whitening. This will help you and the dentist agree on the whitening product or technique that’s best for you.
