Laser Dentistry,Chennai,India

                                    Tooth whitening or Dental bleaching is a procedure in general dentistry but most especially in the field of cosmetic dentistry. Teeth whitening are done for removing the stains from the teeth or tooth caused by bacterial pigments, foodstuffs and tobacco .Whitening restores natural tooth color and bleaching whitens beyond the natural color.

There are many methods to whiten the teeth such as: brushing, bleaching strips, bleaching pen, bleaching gel, laser bleaching, and natural bleaching.

Laser Dentistry is a revolutionary step in dental care, which allows for the virtually pain free application of dental procedures with reduced swelling, trauma and bleeding. Crucially, the need for invasive implements and tools including the drill are eliminated.

In Laser Teeth whitening lasers are used for teeth whitening. Lasers are used to speed up the in-office teeth whitening procedures. A peroxide bleaching solution, applied to the tooth surface, is “activated” by laser energy, which speeds up of the whitening process.

All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. When used in teeth whitening procedures, the laser acts as a heat source and enhances the effect of tooth beaching agents.

Soft Tissue (Gum) Laser Dentistry treatment

Crown Lengthening: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser) and bone (hard tissue laser) to expose healthier tooth structure. Referred to as crown lengthening, such reshaping provides a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.

Gummy Smile: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile.

Soft Tissue Folds (Epulis): Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of soft tissue folds often caused by ill-fitting dentures.

Muscle Attachment (Frenula): A laser frenectomy is an ideal treatment option for children who are tongue tied (restricted or tight frenulum) and babies unable to breast feed adequately due to limited tongue movement. A laser frenectomy may also help to eliminate speech impediments.

Hard Tissue (Tooth) Laser Dentistry treatment

Cavity Detector: Low intensity soft tissue dental lasers may be used for the early detection of cavities by providing a reading of the by-products produced by tooth decay.

Tooth Sensitivity: Dental lasers may be used to seal tubules (located on the root of the tooth) that are responsible for hot and cold tooth sensitivity.

Dental Fillings/Tooth Preparation: Hard tissue dental lasers may eliminate the need for a local anesthetic injection and the traditional turbine dental drill. Lasers used in dental filling procedures are capable of killing bacteria located in a cavity, potentially leading to improved long term tooth restorations. However, dental lasers are not appropriate for the replacement of amalgam fillings, onlays or crowns.

There are several advantages. Dentists may not need to use a drill or administer anesthesia, allowing the patient to enjoy a more relaxed dental experience. Laser procedures can be more precise. Also, lasers can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies; reduce the amount of bacteria in

Affordable Teeth Whitening India

In recent years, tooth whitening has become a huge phenomenon. A whiter, brighter smile is one of the first things that people notice about your appearance. Most likely you’ve noticed the various ads for teeth whitening products bombarding us everywhere. “If your teeth are whiter, you look better” is the message that these advertisements send.

Most common favourite foods such as the junk food, beverages and other hot and cold drinks come with an unavoidable side effect namely the yellowing of teeth. It is not possible to control your teeth from getting a stained look even if you brush twice a day as hard as you can with the normal tooth pastes. Although brushing does help in keeping them clean, there is however no whitening effect. This condition has led to a great demand for special teeth whiteners.

Till recent times such teeth whiteners were not available easily in the market and people had to go to the dentist’s office to get their teeth whitened. This seems to cost ‘an arm and leg’ and people often seem to be annoyed about having to travel to the dentist’s office and wait for the appointment.

In India Teeth Whitening costs are very cheap when compared to western countries.Here teeth whitening cost begins from just $130 where as  in Europe ,US and UK  the teeth whitening costs are above $600

Bleaching vs. Whitening

The  term “bleaching” is permitted to be used only when the teeth can be whitened beyond their natural color. This applies strictly to products that contain bleach – typically hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.

The term “whitening,” on the other hand, refers to restoring a tooth’s surface color by removing dirt and debris. So any product that cleans (like a toothpaste) is considered a whitener. Of course, the term whitening sounds better than bleaching, so it is more frequently used – even when describing products that contain bleach.

Teeth Whitening Options

Three major teeth whitening options are available today. All three rely on varying concentrations of peroxide and varying application times.

  • In-Office Whitening

Significant color change in a short period of time is the major benefit of in-office whitening. This protocol involves the carefully controlled use of a relatively high-concentration peroxide gel, applied to the teeth by the dentist or trained technician after the gums have been protected with a paint-on rubber dam.

  • Home Whitening

Many dentists are of the opinion that professionally dispensed take-home whitening kits can produce the best results over the long haul. Take-home kits incorporate an easy-to-use lower-concentration peroxide gel that remains on the teeth for an hour or longer (sometimes overnight). The lower the peroxide percentage, the longer it may safely remain on the teeth.

Why do your teeth darken?

There are various reasons. The majority of darkening is a result of:


Smoking stains

Soft drink consumption

Coffee staining

Tooth stains result in less light to shining through teeth, making them look dull and lifeless.

Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening products certainly can remove harsh staining – that exists on the exterior as well and the interior of your tooth enamel.Products applied by a dentist or with ‘at home’ whitening kits consist of either one of two products – those containing Peroxide, or those containing bleaching agents.It is important to note that tooth whitening can only achieved on your natural teeth and not on artificial enhancements.
