Laser whitening is one of the professional teeth whitening products that shows excellent results just after a few sessions. However, it is highly suggested that a dental professional perform this procedure for proper application and better results. A disadvantage of most professional teeth whitening products like this laser procedure is that it is expensive. One session of laser teeth whitening  with  the dentist can cost at least $300 which is really a burden. Even so, a lot of people still prefer to undergo professional teeth whitening products like laser procedure since this can lighten the teeth up to 10 shades. The procedure involves placing strips between your teeth in which a laser heats them up so they can penetrate your teeth. After a session, whitened teeth  is already visible. Add a few  more sessions and you have super shiny white teeth.
Bleaching products. Bleach is widely-recognized form of professional teeth whitening product that can effectively lessen teeth discoloration. Typically, this bleach is composed of  10% carbamide peroxide used by dentists for oral hygiene. After three sessions of repeated application, results are highly visible. Nevertheless, some staining is reduced after the first session. The dentist must carefully apply the bleach since gums and mouth tissues can exhibit adverse reactions to the  harsh bleach. Also, bleaching must be followed-up by applying extra home teeth whitening products to maintain the result.
Professional teeth whitening products can deliver excellent  and permanent results. However, one must be choosy and cautious when using such products. It is always best to seek the services of a dentist when using professional teeth whitening products.
