Is Laser Teeth Whitening Safe?

teeth, health, smile, dentistPerfectly clean white teeth are possible in just an hour or two thanks to laser whitening techniques. As technology has advanced, using lasers on the teeth is now a safe everyday procedure that can be carried out by a qualified dentist.

To protect teeth, gums and sensitive tissue from the bleaching agent the dentist will use:

– Rubber dams on the gums

– Retractors for the cheeks

– A low heat laser

Usually the only side-effect is tooth sensitivity and that “normally resolves itself after a few days”. More information about teeth whitening can be found at
