Laser Teeth Whitening – The Speed King!

by Joe Bulger DDS

What is Zoom Teeth Whitening?

Laser Teeth Whitening (Laser Bleaching) has become increasingly popular. With this procedure, you have special formula of gel applied to your teeth and then sit while a high-intensity beam of light is applied to activate the gel.

There are different popular brands of laser teeth whitening products, such as Zoom Teeth Whitening, BriteSmile and Sapphire. They all provide accelerated Teeth Whitening.

Compared to other options, like Home Teeth Whitening Trays or Teeth Whitening Strips, Laser Bleaching can give you incredibly fast results.

Laser Teeth Whitening is also called In-Office Whitening, as you have it all done right there in the dental office.

Does Laser Bleaching give Best Tooth Whitening?

Do you get the best teeth whitening results with lasers?

Hard to say. If you’re willing to persevere, you can get good results with the strips. I’ve definitely seen amazing results with the trays.

I don’t think “best teeth whitening” is the real issue. Time and money are the key factors here. Laser Teeth Whitening is the speed king. Hands down.

Some people can’t be bothered with Strips or Trays and don’t mind shelling out more for the option ofย  whitening teeth their with a Laser.

As a Toronto Teeth Whitening dentist, I would say time is the biggest factor for these people. Those that have the money and place high value on their time appreciate fast, effective results.

We often see busy corporate executives opt for the Laser Teeth Whitening.They have no patience to fuss with Home Teeth Whitening Products or Whitening Strips.

Sometimes the Whitening is just the first step of a much bigger case involving Porcelain Veneers, Crowns, Dental Implants and the like. In big cases like that, the fee for whitening teeth is just a small part of the overall expenses that can easily exceed $1500 per tooth.

Why Does Whitening Teeth with a Laser Cost More?

In a nutshell, you’re paying for the time in the chair and the extra cost of the Zoom Teeth Whitening products.

Some offices will charge a big premium for this service as Laser Bleaching is considered a luxury item. Expect fees around $500 to $1000 for a single session. You may consider a package fee for multiple visits as it’s unlikely a single visit will give you optimal results.

Another option is to finish off with the Home Teeth Whitening Products. You’re sure to get the best teeth whitening results possible. You’ll get the fast start with the Laser Bleaching and then you’ll top it off by wearing the Home Trays.

Toronto Teeth Whitening Dentist Prefers Home Teeth Whitening Products

I have to admit, I try talking everyone into using Home Teeth Whitening Products.

It’s not that Laser Whitening doesn’t work. It does. It’s just it doesn’t work any BETTER than Custom Trays.

So I say “Save your money.” Those Zoom Teeth Whitening products are far more expensive than trays. Why pay so much more if you can get the same best teeth whitening results for a fraction of the cost?

People love fast and easy, that’s why. And there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s like saying “Why buy a bicycle if a car will get you there much faster?”

If you want fast results, Laser Teeth Whitening is for you.

I personally like the idea of the laser, but if it’s the same effect as using the whitening trays– I would stick with the customized trays, (as I’ve already done). On the flip side, time is money, so I can totally appreciate one that would opt for laser. Great insight!

Thanks for your comments Roxy. I prefer the Trays myself, but can appreciate how some busy people want faster results and don’t mind paying extra for it.

This is a very detail information on Laser Teeth Whitening which I believe many people wants to know about. I have social bookmark it and share it with people who is interested in this topic!

I have friends who tried laser teeth whitening as well, and they really like the results that they got. However, I didn’t have enough money for doing laser now and I just using the teeth whitening strip to maintain my teeth bright and white! I guess I will need to consider of using the laser after reading your post!

Zoom teeth whitening process whitens both the center and external of teeth that react well to whitening treatment. Avoid sweet food and drink and other liquid that can stain your teeth is a wise decision. Keeping teeth white after a Zoom teeth whitening treatment is needed for the most excellent results. Simple changes in your diet and continuing regular oral cleanliness and expert cleanings will extend the Zoom teeth whitening results.
