Teeth whitening has been a popular cosmetic pursuit among humankind for thousands of years. In fact, ancient archaeological sites are well-known for their evidence of the various methods people have used to attempt to improve their smiles over time. Some of these traditional methods worked well, some did not work at all, but they all had their shortcomings.
The modern era has been full of whitening trends too, from bleaching strips and trays full of bleaching gel to superior methods of cleaning that remove stains from teeth, there have been a variety of products developed just to focus on the way your smile looks. One of the newest methods has quickly become one of the most popular, too. That’s laser teeth whitening.
Why Laser Whitening is Popular
The procedure, like so many other laser dental procedures, is very fast and very pain-free. It produces visible results on the day of your appointment, and it does so without the use of any harsh chemicals or tools that could lead to unwanted side effects. This makes it very simple for the patient, from both a scheduling and a recovery standpoint. The other reason laser whitening is so popular is because it is generally very affordable.
