Laser deep bleaching

Laser deep bleaching is one of the most popular procedures of the last decade. It is a laser assisted photochemical tooth whitening procedure. There is a great difference between the conventional phototermic (without illumination) and the laser (photochemical) procedures; not only in the principle, but n the efficiency and quality as well. The laser procedure affects not only the enamel surface but even in the dentin layer develops such photochemical processes, which may efficiently whiten even tetracycline discolouration. By other procedures it was not possible to treat efficiently dentin discolourations. That’s why the laser photochemical teeth whitening is named „deep bleaching”


Treatment plan

First step is to identify the cause of discolouration, assessment of the condition and treatment.
When choosing the treatment, the less invasive but efficient solution is seeked for.  Discolourations on the surface of the teeth are removed. 
Minimal invasive procedures as plaque removal, polishing of tooth surfaces, prophylactic treatment, and fluoride treatment are applied. Second step is the microabrasion, considerably lightening the enamel.

Treatment of stains int he tooth tissues
Chemical whitening is made with substances containing hy
drogen peroxide. Applied on the tooth surface removes stains from the surface and the uppermost layer of the enamel. 

The process is sped up by thermochemical mean, by heating with photopolymer lamp; the oxidation substance penetrates even into the enamel prisms.

The chemical reactions in the inner layers, deep in the enamel and in the dentin are induced by laser light during photochemical whitening.
Discoloured surfaces are covered with composite filling material, or repaired with veneers, shells, crowns.
