Laser Bleaching

Laser bleaching is a procedure for lightening tooth color and involves the application of a bleaching gel to the teeth and activation of the bleaching effect by means of laser light.

The prerequisite for laser tooth whitening is a professional tooth cleaning – ideally one week before the tooth whitening takes place. In connection with this, the gum tissue and surrounding mucous membranes are covered with a gum protection fluid.

The bleaching gel is then applied to the teeth to be treated. The laser lamp light accelerates the bleach effect so that visibly brighter and long-lasting tooth whitening can be observed even after a short time period.

Laser bleaching has an especially long-lasting effect. A "white diet" should be observed in the first 2-3 days following the process.

Laser bleaching is a particularly gentle and pain-free bleaching method. Laser bleaching has a satisfaction rate of about 93%. The long-term results depend primarily on the individual. Certain habits, such as using tobacco products, drinking coffee, tea, dark soft drinks, and infrequent visits to the dentist may lessen results. As long as you receive regular professional care and use professional after care products (whitening paste, etc.) you should be able to maintain results for a period of 1-2 years.

Just one hour of laser bleaching can whiten the teeth up to 10 tooth shade grades.
