How Advanced Laser Technology is Used for Professional Teeth Whitening
Dr. Richard Weigand of Spokane, Washington, sees many patients in the community who want to whiten their teeth but have been disappointed by the results of expensive over-the-counter whitening products. Instead, our team may recommend using advanced laser technology to achieve a brighter smile. He is pleased to offer laser-assisted dentistry, including laser-assisted professional teeth bleaching.
What is Laser-Assisted Teeth Whitening?
Laser-assisted teeth whitening is a procedure that uses a laser to activate the whitening gel. This procedure causes the gel to break down the stain molecules and release oxygen. The increased amount of oxygen then helps to brighten your teeth. Laser-assisted teeth whitening is a relatively new technology and has become very popular in recent years. It is considered one of the safest and most effective ways to achieve brighter teeth and is hands down more effective than anything patients could purchase over the counter at their local drugstore.
Why do our Patients Love Laser-Assisted Teeth Whitening?
Using advanced laser technology in the dental office to perform whitening is an excellent option for patients looking for effective, fast, and affordable whitening options. Patients often choose laser teeth whitening because:
- It is one of the most effective methods of teeth whitening available.
- The results are usually very quick, often providing noticeable changes after just one treatment.
- It is affordable, sometimes costing less than purchasing multiple over-the-counter whitening products to obtain the same results.
- There is usually no pain or sensitivity associated with the procedure.
- Results can be maintained by using home whitening products afterward.
Is Laser Teeth Bleaching Painful?
Absolutely not! The treatment is comfortable and allows patients to brighten their smiles in a single appointment, achieving their desired results without waiting weeks or months for gradual improvements.
What Can I Expect During My Laser Teeth Whitening Treatment?
Patients are made comfortable in the dentist’s chair before the teeth are thoroughly cleaned. Then, a whitening gel is applied to the surfaces of the teeth, and a laser light device is used to activate the ingredients, which pull deep stains from within the natural tooth enamel. Patients relax while the procedure is performed, and then the whitening gel is removed to reveal a brighter smile!
What Other Treatments are Provided with Advanced Laser Technology?
Dr. Richard Weigand and his team in Spokane are pleased to integrate laser technology into other areas of the practice, including periodontal disease treatments and gum contouring. Lasers have continued to become more popular in dentistry and other areas of medicine and provide precision care with less bleeding and healing time for most procedures. Working with a dentist who continues to reinvest into the practice to provide state-of-the-art solutions for patients is a smart choice! Our team also has extensive training on using lasers in the dental office so that patients can feel at ease with an experienced professional in charge of their treatment.
Are Lasers safe?
Lasers continue to be used in many areas of medicine because of their effectiveness and reliability. When treatments are performed by a trained professional, laser treatments are completely safe!
