Techniques for Teeth Whitening

Laser rays can also bleach, and this is an effective and fast way to bleach teeth where bleaching trays and gels are not used, and only the laser ray works on the teeth layers.
One of the side effects of bleaching is increased teeth sensitivity to cold. This may last for few hours to days or more depending on the type of care you take for the teeth.
Using sensitivity curing products helps minimize the problem while healing the micro fractures and opening of the enamel layer with re-mineralization over time.
