Laser Teeth Whitening FAQ
What is laser teeth whitening?
Laser teeth whitening helps remove stains, restoring teeth to their natural colour without damaging the surface layer or increased sensitivity. Stained teeth are often the result of ageing as well as dark coloured liquids and foods.
Will I have perfect white teeth?
Our natural tooth colour varies, for instance, many people naturally have a greyer shade of teeth. Others may have white spots.With that said, our aim is to remove stains and restore teeth to their natural colour whatever that may be.
Are home whiting kits and beauty salons effective?
A common Teeth Whitening FAQ, it is important for laser whitening to be carried out by trained professionals; therefore beauty salons may carry substantial risk. Home kits do not provide tailored mouth guards which are risky as the gel may leak out into your mouth and gums, resulting in blistering and increased sensitivity.
As a legal requirement, kits sold in Europe are no more than 0.1% peroxide, and this is often not enough to be effective. Also, kits sold online may contain acids and abrasives, which could be hazardous.
Is Laser teeth whiting always effective?
Laser teeth whiting is most effective on natural teeth. Veneers, crows, dentures, plates or bonding will not have the desired result.
How many sessions will I need?
The numbers of sessions depend entirely on the current state of your teeth and your overall goals. Results are long lasting, although follow-up treatments are recommended. Lifestyle habits do affect the number of sessions required for maintenance. For example, smokers would require more frequent treatments.
Are there any side affects?

I already have sensitive teeth, is this procedure still safe?
