Laser teeth bleaching

Postby Bubbles » Tue, 07 Sep 2004 8:49 am

Hi

I know someone who had it done and it looks really good, very big difference. Expensive though and needs to be redone about once every 18 months to two years. Or so.

Teeth veneers also can. But even more expensive, but permanent whiteness then. Very expensive and also means having some of the surface of the tooth filed away.

Forget those home bleaching kits..........rubbish results. Not strong enough.

If teeth veneers means having some of the surface of the tooth filed away, then i would not advise it. Cos from what i know, every person teeth has a protective layer such that your teeth will be more resistance to bacteria. If you file it away, your teeth will become more vunlerable. :D

My 2 cents worth after some research.

Laser teeth whitening is the best bleaching method now compared to older "heat treatments" which have a higher risk of permanent sensitivity. No surface damage (to the enamel) is done per se. Hydrogen Peroxide released from the reaction of the blue "cold" laser with the applied gel acts on the discolouration like bleach.

Proper dental care will prevent early discolouration, including avoiding staining drinks etc.

My sister got hers done in Bangkok, about $550 in total i think. Went with a company in Singapore called Health Aesthetics. Cheers.

Do it only if u hv a real need for it like your wedding or some important person u're meeting. It causes create sensitivity, and you may hv to live with it..

My dentist always discourages me from it..I am sure he wld love to make some money from making my teeth white but by saying it's bad for my enamel. I had to listen to him.

I was told about the side effects such as sensitive teeth....thought it was a temporary side effect though and not permanent?
