LASER TEETH WHITENING
Did you know that professional, in-office laser teeth whitening is now the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment in the U.S.? Would you like to revive your discolored or stained smile? At TruGLO Modern Dental, Dr. Kalasho provides safe, controlled, and pain-free laser teeth whitening options for you. As a top dentist in Hollywood, her goal is to help every patient reach a smile they can feel confident in.
The very best part is that the results are almost visible instantly. You’ll leave out office beaming with satisfaction. If you have been considering whitening your teeth, laser teeth whitening is by far the unrivaled treatment option.
WHAT MAKES LASER TEETH WHITENING SPECIAL?
Not only does laser teeth whitening produce fast results, but it is also the safest treatment plan. In the past, patients expressed gum and tooth sensitivity as reasons not to get their teeth bleached. However, Dr. Kalasho uses a specific peroxide gel with anti-sensitivity granules that do not soak into your teeth. Dr. Kalasho also uses desensitizers like fluoride and potassium nitrate during the treatment to minimize any potential tooth sensitivity while maximizing results.
Our goal is to brighten your smile and make the experience as comfortable as possible.
WHAT ARE THE PRIMARY CAUSES OF TEETH DISCOLORATION?
Teeth begin to lose their original white color for a variety of reasons. Some reasons can be more challenging to prevent, while others are simply a matter of lifestyle changes. Whatever the reason, our laser teeth whitening can provide a solution.
As we age, our teeth naturally darken. It might be due to genetics, eating habits, or poor oral health. Many patients say they feel their teeth have a brown, yellow, green, or gray tint to their teeth as they get older.
The things we eat and drink also have a direct impact on the brightness of our teeth. Many people know that coffee, red wine, and dark sodas can cause staining and discoloration, but some fruits and vegetables can also have the same darkening effect over time.
Smoking and tobacco use are the number one cause of discolored teeth. Not only is it detrimental to your oral health, but smoking is also the leading cause of lung cancer. If you are a smoker, for many reasons, please stop for your health!
PREPARING YOUR TEETH FOR WHITENING
First, Dr. Kalasho will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth. Prophylaxis cleanings ensure that all debris, build-up, and plaque on your teeth and in between have been removed. After clearing the build-up in and around your teeth, we will address the teeth themselves.
Next, she will perform a thorough exam of your mouth to look for any issues like decaying teeth, gum disease, or cracks in your teeth. Once this is completed, Dr. Kalasho will take pictures of your teeth so she can measure and compare their color on a shade guide. She uses this as a benchmark to assess which shade of white is right for your smile.
LIGHT-ACCELERATED WHITENING POWER
Dr. Kalasho believes it is essential for patients to understand how laser teeth whitening works and how it differs from other methods of whitening. The more you know about a procedure, the more comfortable you will feel about it.
She uses a light-accelerated bleaching technique, often referred to as power whitening or Zoom whitening. Your mouth is primed with a resin that confines your teeth. The laser and light now target only the surface of your teeth. Dr. Kalasho takes excellent care to ensure that your gums and tissue are not affected by the laser’s light. She also uses a special gel to assist in this process. The specially formulated teeth whitening gel works in tandem with the laser to absorb the light and whiten your teeth.
You may have heard of several teeth whitening technologies on television, magazines, or the internet. The bottom line is the most effective type of light to dramatically whiten teeth is ultraviolet light. Ultraviolet rays use the blue spectrum of light. This wavelength of blue light is the safest and most effective for laser teeth whitening treatments.
ARE YOU READY TO WHITEN YOUR SMILE?The first step to achieving long-lasting, effective teeth whitening results is to schedule your consultation with Dr. Kalasho. It is essential from the onset that you have the right expectation in terms of results. Some of Dr. Kalasho’s patients only require one treatment to achieve the shade of white they desire. Others might require several. However stained or discolored your teeth are, Dr. Kalasho is committed to finding the solution for you. She believes in using the least amount of laser whitening treatments to produce the maximum result you want.
