In under one hour at our North Vermilion Family Dental office, you can undergo a simple, painless process for whitening your teeth with LaserSmile. The combination of the ingredients, along with the procedure itself, makes LaserSmile very effective. Its quick treatment reduces the risk of sensitivity and the discomfort of excess heat, making the LaserSmile treatment both comfortable and safe.
Before whitening begins, the dentist or hygienist will protect your gums with a barrier. Next, the gel is applied to your teeth. Your dentist then uses the handpiece to direct the laser onto the teeth to activate the gel. The laser is applied for bursts of 15 seconds, for up to a total of 16 minutes. Finally, the gel is rinsed from the teeth, and the barrier on the gums is removed. With proper dental hygiene, teeth whitening with LaserSmile can last for many years.
