Laser Teeth Whitening

At Greenberg Orthodontics in Pasadena, CA

We offer very safe and effective tooth whitening with our non-ablative laser. This laser treatment is super safe! It lights up the gel and not the tooth. Therefore, you will not have the sensitivity that you do with other whitening services. You will enjoy a pearly white smile!

Greenberg Orthodontics offers the most advanced treatments to keep your smile healthy and bright. One of the most common cosmetic dental concerns is tooth discoloration. With a variety of in-office and at-home whitening treatments available on the market today, it can be difficult to determine which method offers the most benefits. Pasadena Laser Teeth Whitening provider Greenberg Orthodontics is confident that our state-of-the-art treatment will deliver stunning results without the drawbacks of other treatments.

What is Laser Teeth Whitening?

Laser teeth whitening is an in-office treatment for tooth discoloration. In contrast to other in-office and at-home whitening treatments, our laser treatment involves the use of a laser to heat up a specially-formulated gel rather than heating the teeth directly. This allows for faster, more effective whitening with less sensitivity, making this unique method a win-win.

What are the Benefits?

Tooth discoloration can be a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness, sometimes causing those who experience it to hide their smile. At Greenberg Orthodontics, we are committed to helping our patients smile more.

Laser teeth whitening delivers noticeable results within a single in-office session. You won’t have to worry about ongoing or daily at-home treatments, making this option as convenient as it is effective. With care provided by experienced and board-certified orthodontist Dr. Vickie Greenberg, you can significantly reduce your risks of complications like tooth nerve damage and soft tissue burns.

Who is a Candidate for Laser Teeth Whitening in Pasadena?

Teeth whitening at Greenberg Orthodontics is an excellent option for patients with generally healthy teeth who want to remove surface stains for a more radiant smile. Candidates should have realistic expectations for their treatment and be committed to practicing good everyday dental care to enhance the longevity of their results and maintain good overall oral health.

However, some patients may not be suitable for this particular treatment method. Patients with discoloration due to tooth damage or decay should address such issues before undergoing teeth whitening treatment. Patients with gum disease, cavities, exposed roots, or deteriorating enamel are also not candidates. Sensitive teeth, allergies to product ingredients, and tooth restorations such as crowns or fillings may also prevent some patients from undergoing laser teeth whitening.

What to Expect During Your Treatment

On the day of your appointment, you can expect to leave our office with a noticeably whiter smile. To begin your treatment, Dr. Greenberg will place a rubber guard in your mouth to keep it open throughout your procedure. Next, she will apply a protective substance over your gums. This substance will harden into a rubber-like consistency and help prevent irritation or burns to your gums.

Once the protective layer has hardened, Dr. Greenberg will apply the whitening gel to your teeth. Using a handheld laser device, she will heat and activate the gel, causing it to foam. This will indicate that your treatment is effectively removing surface stains from your teeth. After the gel is left to work for several minutes, Dr. Greenberg will use a small suction device to remove the gel. Then, she will repeat the gel portion of your treatment several times until your teeth have reached the desired shade. She will remove the gel solution one last time, as well as the protective layer from your gums, concluding your treatment and revealing your bright new smile.

After Your Treatment

For at least two hours after your treatment, you will need to drink only clear fluids. You need to wait a minimum of 24 hours before eating or drinking highly pigmented foods, soda, coffee, or tea to prevent compromising your results.

Your Results

In just an hour, you can expect a substantial difference in the shade of your teeth. Your results will last as long as you prevent further staining. Good dental hygiene combined with avoiding foods and drinks that cause discoloration can help you maintain your results indefinitely.
