Risks of Laser Teeth Whitening – Laser Teeth Whitening Review

Teeth whitening, a relatively non-existent procedure twenty years ago has come on in leaps and bounds ever since the materialistic attitude adopted during the last few years of the twentieth century.

At this time teeth whitening procedures were only limited to actors and newsreaders who needed to look good when on television or the big screen. At that time prices were astronomical for such treatments, but as is the way of all new techniques and concepts, time will inevitably push the price down as it becomes more common place. But teeth whitening seems to be a kind of exception.

While it is true that more people of the general population seek to have their teeth whitened, they are all under the illusion that only dentists can carry out the procedure. Home whitening kits, created by moral dentists, are now being the fashion amongst those that intelligently search for more time efficient and less costly procedures, not to mention more safe methods of whitening whilst protecting the tooth.

Laser teeth whitening is one of the most expensive operations offered by dental surgeons for super quick results. Usually a concentration of either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide solution is applied to the teeth. The bleaching solution is controlled by a laser that quickens the tooth whitening process. The entire process in most cases lasts for up to two hours and the results are noticeable immediately.

Unfortunately while the results are indeed immediate, the side effects and consequences of laser teeth whitening do not make for such easy whitening. Over 18% of patients report gum tissue problems, such as bleeding and infestation while a staggering 39% conceded that teeth sensitivity had increased dramatically. Furthermore, the whitened teeth have to be cared for regularly if whiteness is to be maintained, where certain drinks and foods may not be consumed.
