For nearly two decades, lasers have been used for medicinal and cosmetic purposes in dentistry. Today, lasers are approved for safety by the Food and Drug Administration, and they have become much more prevalent and standard in dental offices across the country. Lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. This energy can achieve accuracy and precision when shaping the gums, biopsying oral tissues, removing tooth decay, and killing bacteria during a root canal. Lasers are even being used for elective procedures to expedite in-office tooth whitening.
Laser Teeth Whitening in West Hollywood
That dental lasers offer a long list of benefits for patients and dentists? Specifically, laser dentistry has grown in popularity among patients because it effectively reduces inflammation, bleeding, and swelling during and following dental procedures. Many patients also report experiencing less pain when lasers are used instead of drills. For this reason alone, many patients experience less anxiety and apprehension before and during their dental appointments. Who doesn’t want a brighter, healthier-looking smile? Laser Whitening is an in-office teeth whitening procedure that brighten stained or discolored teeth in an hour. Using light to supercharge the whitening gel, laser Whitening can whiten teeth up to eight shades in one procedure.
Possibly. Laser dentistry is generally not used in examinations and cleanings. However, if you need a filling, root canal, biopsy, periodontal treatment or tooth whitening, a dental laser could provide a better overall experience and recovery. To find out if laser dentistry is right for you, schedule an appointment to meet with our West Hollywood teeth whitening experts, and discuss your options for treatment.
Your experience will be similar to those you may have had before, only without the pressure, vibrations and sound of a dental drill. Just as with traditional dental treatments, you will be anesthetized before having laser treatment. However, because dental lasers may help minimize pain, you may not require as much anesthesia as you would with a non-laser treatment.
Your post-treatment care will not differ from the instructions you would have from a dentist using a drill or other dental tool. However, you may find that your recovery time is shorter and that bleeding is minimal immediately following your treatment.
