How Does Laser Teeth Whitening Work?

By: Dr. Victoria Veytsman


When you are unhappy with your teeth and want to restore stains, discoloration, and yellowing, laser teeth whitening may be the answer. At Cosmetic Dental Studios in NYC, cosmetic dentist Dr. Victoria Veytsman offers Philips Zoom! White Speed teeth whitening, which uses an LED light to help our patients quickly get a bright and white smile. After your initial comprehensive dental exam at our Midtown Manhattan office, we can make suggestions for cosmetic dentistry procedures that can improve your smile, including laser teeth whitening.

What is laser teeth whitening?

One of the fastest ways to achieve a white smile is with laser whitening treatment from Dr. Veytsman. This advanced technology can brighten your teeth up to several shades after just one treatment and in less than one hour. Philips Zoom! White Speed is effective and has long-lasting results. Best of all, it can be customized to meet your goals for your smile and to help you achieve a celebrity smile.

During laser teeth whitening, Dr. V. will protect your gums to prevent irritation. Next, a whitening gel is applied to the teeth, and a laser is used to break down stains. The process will take about 45 minutes, and you will see your teeth are whitening up to several shades whiter. At Cosmetic Dental Studios, we recommend one laser teeth whitening treatment every three to four years as this whitening treatment provides the longest results in Midtown Manhattan.

Laser teeth whitening versus teeth whitening trays

Laser teeth whitening is a specialized procedure that uses concentrated bleaching gel and a laser to whiten the teeth dramatically. Laser teeth whitening is more expensive than other whitening methods, such as teeth whitening trays. It also has a higher risk of tooth sensitivity post-treatment. However, it is more effective and results last longer than teeth whitening trays. Also, teeth whitening trays require more applications to achieve the same results you get from just one laser teeth whitening treatment.

Is teeth whitening good for my teeth?

According to the American Dental Association, teeth whitening is indeed safe. Patients can see results from our laser teeth whitening treatment. Your experience will vary based on your goals for your smile and your existing shade.

How to keep teeth white

After your laser teeth whitening in Midtown Manhattan, you will have to maintain your smile to keep it looking its best. Be sure to stay hydrated, as water can rinse away food and beverages that can stain the teeth. Also, use a straw to keep staining beverages off of your tooth enamel. Regular dental exams and routine dental cleanings help make sure your teeth and gums are healthy too.
