Laser Teeth Whitening
Laser teeth whitening is administered in a dental office exclusively and is the most expensive method for bleaching. Generally, all forms of teeth whitening work by releasing oxygen ions from a tooth whitening gel, which gently lifts stains from the teeth. This is because the laser simply lifts the stains faster. Another advantage of using a laser is that (depending on the type used) it allows the dentist to bleach one tooth at a time. This is helpful when one tooth is more discolored than the surrounding teeth.
