Is Laser Whitening more effective than home teeth whitening?

Professional home whitening kits provide more permanent results over a longer time
scale, whereas laser tooth whitening offers immediate results. A combination of the

What is the procedure involving teeth whitening?

surfaces with built up plaque do not whiten well. A scale and Polish will leave your
tooth surfaces beautifully smooth and clean and ready for whitening.
Home Whitening with Professional Home Whitening Kits involves taking impressions
of your teeth at your first appointment. We use the impressions to make custom

appointment, a few days later, we fit the trays and show you how to use the gel.

place the laser light directly on the teeth. You may experience sensitivity during the
treatment. After 20 minutes, the dentist will wipe off the gel and reapply it. This
process will be repeated several times. After about an hour of the whitening process,
the dentist will wash off the gel and record the new brighter shade. We will also make
you custom made trays to follow up your whitening with a take home whitening kit.

porosity is higher the younger you are. Lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking red
