Laser bleaching is one of the fastest, easiest ways to whiten your smile. This professional teeth whitening treatment uses a peroxide bleaching gel that is applied directly to your teeth and activated with a dental laser for maximum whitening results. Dr. Lozada, Santa Clarita laser bleaching dentist, can help you decide if laser bleaching is right for you.
Unlike other types of whitening that can take days or weeks to show results, laser whitening can lighten your teeth ten to twelve shades in about one hour. If Dr. Lozada, expert in laser bleaching in Santa Clarita, determines that you are a candidate for laser bleaching, you can have the procedure done in a single visit. We might recommend that you have your teeth cleaned beforehand to ensure that there is no plaque or tartar buildup to interfere with the penetration of the bleaching gel and your whitening results.

Next, we will protect your gums and other soft tissues before applying the special peroxide gel. Once the gel has been applied to your teeth, the laser light will be turned on to activate the gel and send it deep inside the structure of the tooth. As the gel enters the pores of the enamel, it will break down into water and oxygen. The oxygen breaks up the stains in your teeth and leaves them looking bright and white.
While Dr. Lozada, Santa Clarita laser bleaching dentist, is taking care of your smile, your only job is to sit back and relax. You can rest, listen to music, read, or even nap during your laser bleaching treatment. Once the process is complete, a fluoride treatment might be recommended to guard against post-whitening sensitivity. The entire treatment typically takes about an hour.
Keep your smile looking bright and beautiful for months with good dental hygiene habits. Brush and floss as recommended using fluoride toothpaste. If Dr. Lozada, expert in laser bleaching in Santa Clarita, recommends touch-up whitening kits, use these as directed to keep new stains at bay.
