Professional teeth whitening has become extremely popular in recent years. When it comes to stained teeth, wine, coffee and cigarettes only tell part of the story. Sometimes teeth are discolored due to genetics or medication, among other reasons. If you are ready to have the white, dazzling smile you always wanted, get laser teeth whitening with Dr. Gabriel Roybal, DDS.
Just like our same-day crowns and veneers, you can get your teeth whitened in our Santa Fe office with Zoom! Whitening laser teeth whitening system, or Britesmile laser whitening system. It’s fast and effective, giving you noticeable results in under an hour. You will leave our office with a radiant white smile up to eight shades lighter than when you arrived.
How Long does Teeth Whitening Take?
Start to finish, you will probably be in Dr. Roybal’s Santa Fe office for about two hours. Prior to the procedure we begin with a preparation period that includes a dental screening, to confirm you are a good candidate for the whitening, a cleaning and plaque removal. At the onset of the procedure, a peroxide gel is applied to the teeth. This gel contains a professional strength formula that ensures the laser accomplishes the maximum possible amount of teeth whitening. The laser will activate the gel, for as little as 45 minutes of bleaching.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Yes. Professional teeth whitening under the supervision of an experienced dentist is one of the safest dental procedures available. Extensive research on laser teeth whitening indicates that it is safe for your teeth as long as it is performed in a professional teeth whitening dental clinic.
How Long does Teeth Whitening Last?
As long as you follow simple post-teeth whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be whiter than they were before. After your laser teeth whitening procedure, it is important to floss, brush twice per day and have occasional touch-ups with Zoom! Weekender or Nite White gel. These professional teeth whitening products are specifically designed to keep your teeth their brightest.
Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?
Some patients do report increased sensitivity during and after the treatment. Most do not. Most tooth and gum sensitivity following whitening is temporary and should subside within a few days following treatment.
