The LWS laser whitening system is a professional bleaching system used in combination with diode laser systems with a wavelength from 810nm to 980 nm and the ND:YAG Laser with a wavelength of 1064 nm.
The gel is enriched with titanium dioxide (TiO2 ) which in combination with a laser is an effective photocatalytic pigment that also physically blocks undesired increases of heat. The presence of titanium dioxide allows the use of less hydrogen peroxide in the bleaching agent, thus achieving excellent results with fewer side effects (e.g. sensitivity, changes in the tooth surface, etc.) for a natural whiteness.
The LWS TITANIUM was developed in a cooperation between the Vienna Dental School and the Vienna University of Technology in order to obtain a high bleaching efficiency combined with an elevated protection of the dental enamel.
What Can Patients Expect From Laser Teeth Whitening?
One of the biggest advantages of laser teeth whitening is that, from beginning to end, the entire procedure takes about one hour before noticeable differences are seen. Laser teeth whitening is not recommended for people who have receding gums, sensitive teeth, or other severe problems with their teeth. It is also not recommended that women who are pregnant, or people who are sixteen years old or younger.
It is also possible that the patient's teeth may come out whiter than they believed they would be. This is not a long-term problem due to the fact that laser teeth whitening does not have permanent results. With that in mind, some stains could resurface that could require additional laser treatments to be required. This, of course, leads to further expenses. The immediate results, however, are worth the investment.
