Pattaya Laser Tooth Whitening
| In the course of a single day we all expose our teeth
to harmful substances such as coffee, soft drinks,
tobacco, tea, red wine, and more. These substances leave stains
that cannot easily be removed with regular brushing
and dental cleanings.
Tooth whitening has become one
of the most popular of Pattaya Teeth Whitening Service and effective cosmetic dentistry
procedures due to its minimal time requirement and
dramatic results. It is one of the safest and easiest
ways to dramatically improve your smile.
Laser Tooth whitening procedures can be very successful in
achieving a brighter, whiter smile. Laser Tooth whitening is
recommended to remove stains resulting from wear and
exposure to staining agents and when teeth lose some
of their natural luster over time.

white will my teeth get after teeth whitening procedure?
|There is no universal answer as the
type and amount of staining will affect
results. Extrinsic (external) stains
such as coffee, tea, nicotine, red
wine, dark colas, aging, etc. are readily
removed resulting in noticeably whiter
teeth. Intrinsic stains from tetracycline,
flourosis, decalcification and other
discolorations occurring during tooth
development are much more difficult
as these are deep inner stains. Noticeable
lightening will result but the basic
stain coloration normally remains.
Every case is unique and is evaluated
prior to treatment. That is the purpose
of the consultation and discussion
of "expected" results prior
long will it last?
|Stains that are removed are gone
forever. However, depending on lifestyle
and oral care they may reoccur. Some
people may never need to re-lighten
their teeth, while most may need occasional
touch-ups. Using your maintenance trays
and whitening toothpaste should keep
them white for as long as you use them.
I treat again to get them whiter?
|Each Laser teeth whitening treatment results in lighter
teeth but with diminishing results.
The amount and type of stain determine
how much lighter. Darker teeth may
require multiple treatments or using
your whitening trays to get their whitest.
However, there is a saturation point
at which excessive "over bleaching" can
result in enamel damage. We will not
furnish you enough gel for this to
happen without scheduling an evaluation

crowns of fillings but will not change

that they may need to be replaced to
match the lighter natural teeth.

the laser teeth whitening treatment?
|Your teeth will stain at the same
rate regardless of whether you whiten
or not. However, after treatment you
are more aware of the shade of your
teeth and stains are more visible on

does the laser teeth whitening compare with home teeth whitening trays?
|Both are effective and will give
good results when properly used. The
laser procedure shows results in one
hour that may take wearing trays 1-3
weeks to achieve. Also, the laser is
in the doctor's control whereas the
trays are under the patient's control.
It takes discipline, patience and there
is usually more discomfort with the
trays. Approximately half the patients
we treat with the laser have tried
trays, and for one reason or another
have chosen to get the laser treatment.
If you could lose 10 pounds in one
hour instead of dieting for 1-3 weeks
to achieve the same 10-pound loss,
which one would you choose? The biggest
advantage of the laser is instant gratification,
which our low cost makes possible for
the same price most dentists charge
for the trays alone.
