What is laser teeth whitening?
As you may know, teeth whitening has been a common practice for quite some time. There are several ways to achieve it but the latest treatment in that regard is laser teeth whitening. It involves making one’s teeth appear whiter by using a laser, as its name suggests. However, contrary to popular belief, the latter itself is not directly responsible for bleaching the denticulation. In fact, the dental professional first has to spread a paste that contains peroxide on the teeth – it may be carbamide or hydrogen peroxide. The blend is then heated using a carbon dioxide or argon laser and this is what provides the result. For some reason, people think that this method only requires one session for the outcome to be apparent. This is not the case as it also requires a few visits for the treatment to be fully effective.
Why laser teeth whitening is the most popular choice
– State of the art technique
The first reason why this system is the primary choice in Birmingham is that it is the latest technology available in that domain. It is therefore meant to be an upgrade on the conventional technique, which means that it can only be more efficient.
– Less time-consuming
Next is the fact that it is way faster than its counterparts. In fact, it only requires a few sessions while the traditional system might take up to a year to attain optimal results. For the former, a person only needs 2 to 4 treatments, in general, but he might have to wait a fortnight after the previous one for a new session. Moreover, treatment usually does not take more than an hour.
– Professional supervision
The process, regardless of whether it is done using a laser or trays, can result in teeth sensitivity that might be quite significant in some circumstances. The main benefit of using lasers is that it is done by a professional, which means that the latter will be able to closely supervise such cases.
It tends to be safer than using trays, despite being a relatively new technique. This is because the substances used in trays are not regulated. It is, therefore, difficult to know whether one is using a trustworthy product or not.
– Less expensive
At first glance, it might seem that laser whitening is more expensive than strips whitening or even trays. It is not necessarily the case, as people tend to forget that the other treatments spread over a long period. This means that everyone having recourse to them have to buy the products a few times before optimal results are visible. Therefore, in the end, the laser treatment is a less costly option.
– Long-term results
This characteristic also contributes to making the process less expensive in some way. In fact, the effects of one session of laser whitening can last for as long as three years. The results are off the charts when compared to whitening strips; the effects are visible for six months in average.
What other options customers have
– Dentist bleaching trays
This is the go-to option for most people. It consists of using a tray that is made from the mould of one’s teeth. It is then filled with a whitening paste and placed on the teeth for a certain period. It is worth noting that the tray may have to remain in the mouth for up to four hours in a single go. Also, the treatment may last for more than a year.
– Crest whitening strips
This product has hit the market in 2001 and is still commonly used. It is a plastic strip resembling a tape that is placed on the teeth for a given period – it depends mainly on the brand being used. The way it works is the side that is placed directly on the teeth contains a gel that makes them look whiter after a few sessions.
– Zoom whitening
This technique is very similar to the one in which lasers are involved, the difference being in the details only. A paste is still applied on the teeth – it is the same gel that is used during laser treatments. However, the dentist will not use a laser here, but a UV lamp. The rays from the latter will break down the gel and this is what allows the enamel and dentin to be penetrated by the oxygen molecules that bleach the teeth.
Why having the treatment done at home is easier and more private
This option is available at Celeb Teeth Whitening and what sets us apart is the fact that we offer to all our customers in Birmingham the possibility to have it done at home. This has several advantages that will be discussed below:
1. The client does not have to set foot outside
Some people do not like to use shared facilities for hygienic reasons. For example, they do not want to lie on a dentist’s bed because they do not like the thought that other people have been there before them. This is comprehensible, and it is the reason why we propose to have it done at home. It might be a new experience for some, and there is no single place where one feels more secure than one’s home. Moreover, it is possible for those having recourse to the treatment to have their loved one next to them for an increased sense of security.
2. It is a more private experience
The experience of having laser treatment varies from person to person. For some people, it might just be a mere formality while for others it can be lead to sensitivity. Therefore, their reactions are different and, for that reason, some person hesitate to go to a dentist to get the treatment. Others simply want their private lives to remain private. This is especially the case high-profile persons and celebrities; the most benign aspects of their lives are exposed to public scrutiny.
3. A matter of convenience
Sometimes, people get ill when they had some things planned and cannot afford to go outside and get them done. This is where the possibility of doing the treatment at home comes in handy. Even if they are sick, the dental professional can still come to their place to do the job. Other persons might have a very tight timetable, making it impossible for them to travel during working hours. It does not matter how busy an agenda might be as a session can only take 15 minutes for some persons. This means that it can easily squeeze through the few spare minutes some people might have during a day.
