A WHITER, BRIGHTER SMILE.
At Keene Dentistry & Implants Laser teeth whitening is a professional teeth whitening procedure performed using advanced laser technology by our expert team of dentists. Many of our patients undergo laser teeth whitening as a means to cosmetically improve the appearance of the mouth, teeth and smile. Many of the drinks and foods we consume on a day to day basis can cause our dental enamels to turn to shades of yellow that cannot always be treated at home and as a result can decrease a person’s confidence.

We offer long-lasting, safe and certified dental laser technology with our dentists providing personalized treatment plans to help patients regain their self-esteem through a beautiful, sparkling white smile. We promote product safety and efficacy as a principal for good results with little to no side effects.
LASER TEETH WHITENING PROCEDURE AT KEEN DENTISTRY & IMPLANTS
Laser teeth whitening is an in-office dental procedure at Keene Dentistry & Implants and is carried out by our team of professional dentists. In order to ease patients from anxiety over a choking sensation throughout the procedure, local anesthesia and sedation may be necessary especially amongst our pain-sensitive patients. We offer our patients to have their teeth professionally cleaned and polished prior to undergoing laser treatment to allow for better results. Before utilizing the laser, the gums are covered with a protective barrier for safety. A strong concentrated whitening gel or bleach is applied individually to the surface of each tooth, followed by heat being generated by the laser to activate and quickly process the speed of the whitening agent removing the stains from each tooth. Dependent on the patient’s needs of how white they desire their teeth to be, the whitening agent will be applied for a second time and the procedure repeated with the laser for a second time again. After completion of the procedure, which tends to last approximately one hour, the protective barrier is removed from the gums and the mouth is thoroughly rinsed. It is common for patients to feel some sensitivity after treatment which usually subsides within a week.
WHAT IS THE AFTERCARE REQUIRED FOR LASER TEETH WHITENING?
For patients to prolong the results of their laser teeth whitening treatment patients are encouraged to avoid consuming staining foods, liquids (e.g., tea, coffee, red wine) and certain products, such as, tobacco.
We Highly recommend that patients maintain regular oral hygiene at home by brushing and flossing their teeth twice a day. We also recommend patients schedule annual dental visits for a professional cleaning to control any early onset of the teeth staining. We devise personalized treatment plans and discuss all expenses to commit to every patient’s needs.
