Laser teeth whitening is a photo dynamic teeth whitening procedure that is the most sophisticated method of whitening in the world. It involves one appointment at our dental clinic in Brisbane and the results are instant. So long as you look after your teeth well, experience has shown that the benefits of laser bleaching can last for years.
A special, non-acidic, hydrogen peroxide gel is combined with a laser which affects the light absorbing molecules in your teeth to make them lighter.
Home bleaching involves wearing very thin, transparent plastic trays which are moulded to your teeth. These hold a bleaching agent in contact with the tooth surface. They are normally worn at night for approximately one week.
What is the More Effective Method?
Usually the whitening is subtle. However, a difference would be noticed between upper teeth that have been bleached and lowers that have not. The degree of colour change varies from person to person depending on the initial degree of discoloration and usage time of the bleach.
How Long Does the Bleaching Last?
This varies depending upon your individual circumstances. However, teeth can still become stained and they will continue to age in a normal way with the passage of time. As mentioned before, the laser whitening can last for years. If you opt for home whitening, we recommend keeping the trays and obtaining new bleach stocks from BOH dental clinic in Brisbane. This will enable you to repeat the whitening periodically. The Australian Dental Association suggests once a year is appropriate.
