About Laser Teeth Whitening
A Brief History
Would you believe that tooth whitening has been occurring since the middle ages? Fortunately, things have progressed quite a long way from the defiling of teeth in a jar of concentrated Nitric acid!
Peroxide based gels were first used to whiten teeth in 1884. Although science has progressed a long way since that time, there has never been a recorded case of H2O2 damaging the structure of a tooth. Beyond's™ latest contribution to teeth whitening is a whitening accelerator that filters out all harmful UV and IR light. This makes it one of the most comfortable laser whitening procedures on the market.
In the US, tooth whitening is reported annually as a $20 billion industry. The Association of Cosmetic Teeth Whitening reported in 2007 that teeth whitening procedures grew at a rate of over 10% year on year. It is the fastest growing cosmetic dental treatment in Ireland and the United Kingdom.
How does Teeth Whitening Work?
Teeth whitening will occur when Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is exposed to the dentin of a tooth (the layer of the tooth directly under the enamel). When Hydrogen Peroxide penetrates through the enamel, pigmentation found in the dentin oxidizes. This renders a lighter finish which is reflected through the translucent enamel.
Other teeth whitening systems incorporate the use of a heat lamp or similar product to accelerate the oxidization process. The downside of such treatment methods is that the use of heat as an accelerant causes a host of adverse symptoms, including; itching and skin irritation, gum irritation, mild to severe burning, sunburn and exposure to harmful UV radiation.
Our laser teeth whitening system overcomes these harmful effects by using a beam of high intensity blue light, which is filtered through over 13,500 optical fibres. The light is finally filtered through 30 layers of coated optical glass.
Harmful Ultra-Violet (UV) light is completely removed due to the filtering system, leaving only a focused beam of cold light in the blue-cyan spectrum. This penetrates deep into the teeth, enabling oxidization to occur without any of the harmful side-effects.
