Teeth whitening or bleaching has become increasingly popular over the years as new procedures have made it cheaper and safer. You can use a variety of methods from whitening toothpastes to over-the-counter gels, strips and trays; or professional whitening products from the dentist.
There is also one-time laser tooth whitening that can be done in a dentist's office in about an hour, providing outstanding results.
The fastest way to whiten teeth is through laser tooth whitening at a dentist's office. A gel is applied to the teeth and a special light and/or a laser accelerates the whitening process, with results achieved in one 30 minute or 1 hour session.
Laser Whitening Recovery Time
Some people experience tooth sensitivity during and after the treatment, but this usually subsides a few days after the final treatment. The laser whitening is not permanent and whatever caused your teeth to stain in the first place will continue to stain them. If you avoid smoking and drinking coffee, your results will last longer.
