What is Laser Teeth Whitening?

There are a number of aspects that can lead to discoloration of the teeth, like drinking fluids that are dark, eating foods that are staining, and smoking or chewing tobacco. To help remove years of stains and brighten your enamel, Body Werks Chicago offers laser teeth whitening to help you feel much more confident about your smile. This is a fast cosmetic treatment that could effectively brighten your teeth multiple shades in one visit. Dr. Heather Prendergast in Chicago, IL will create a personalized treatment plan that will help you get a more beautiful smile.

How is Laser Teeth Whitening Performed?

As an in-office procedure, laser teeth whitening does not require anesthesia, but if you have dental anxiety or a powerful gag reflex, sedation choices may be available. Your teeth will have to be cleaned and dried prior to treatment so that the whitening gel can be applied evenly. Afterward, a protective barrier will be placed over your gums and your eyes will be shielded using special glasses. Dr. Prendergast will apply a professional-strength gel to your enamel and then expose your teeth to the laser light. The mix of this light and gel work to remove the stains. Based upon your present enamel shade and desirable result, this process could be completed 2 – 3 times. As soon as your treatment is complete, the remaining gel and protective gum barrier will be cleaned before your mouth is rinsed.

Laser teeth whitening FAQs

Will dental insurance cover teeth whitening?

Dental insurance can vary between carriers, but teeth whitening is generally not covered because it is a cosmetic procedure. Body Werks Chicago works with each patient regarding easy payment plans and financing to ensure minimum impact on you financially.

How long do the results from teeth whitening last?

Results should last several years based on your at-home dental care routine and whether you consume staining foods and beverages on a regular basis. If you maintain good oral hygiene, stains won't build up as quickly. We also recommend routine cleanings so we can remove any surface stains that develop.

Is teeth whitening painful?

Most patients experience a small amount of sensitivity right after teeth whitening, but this sensation is temporary. Some over-the-counter pain medications can help relieve discomfort. Our team can also provide ways to reduce your risk of sensitivity at our office.
