Who Is A Good Candidate For Laser Teeth Whitening?
In-office laser teeth whitening is an excellent solution for anybody seeking to remove stains and discoloration in their teeth and obtain a whiter and brighter smile. Before you get laser teeth whitening, our team in Rockville, MD will ensure that your teeth are strong enough to handle the treatment and discuss your concerns, goals, and treatment choices. Teeth whitening is also ideal if you want fast, dramatic results. Unlike store-bought whitening products, your laser procedure at Dlight Dental will be personalized to your needs so that you experience appealing, consistent results.
What Can I Expect from Laser Teeth Whitening?
Performed in our Rockville, MD and Washington, D.C. offices, laser teeth whitening does not require anesthesia, but in case you have dental anxiety or a strong gag reflex, sedation alternatives are available. Your teeth need to be cleaned and dried before treatment so the whitening gel can be evenly applied. Then, a protective barrier will be put over your gums while your eyes are shielded using special glasses. Our team will paint a professional-strength whitening gel on your teeth and then use a laser light to assist with breaking down the stains. Depending on your existing enamel shade and desired outcome, this process might be done 2 – 3 more times. Once the procedure is done, the remaining gel and protective gum barrier will be removed before your mouth is rinsed.
Dlight Dental Reviews
This practice is extremely good. The periodontist was very informative about the work she was doing, and the upcoming dental work that needs to be completed. The front desk staff, as well as the individual handling the finances, are courteous, knowledgeable and informative. I am appreciative that I found this practice.
Incredibly effective and organized staff all around. Always prompt and I never have to wait more than a few minutes to go back. Dr. Valle-Cintron is great, takes his time to answer any questions you have, and very skilled. He is attentive throughout my procedures, ensuring my comfort and minimizing any discomfort or anxiety I had
Dr Jean Li very professional and her staff 100 recommended.
Dlight Dental and Doctors are excellent in their knowledge and dental service.
By far the best dental experience I have ever had. I had a lot of work done here - extraction, implant, cleaning, fillings etc. and for someone who is usually afraid of the dentist they made me comfortable throughout the year. I recommended this place to a close friend and he had the same experience. I had to move out of state otherwise this would be my dental office for life. I’m very lucky to have come across the people at this office. If I could give this place 100 stars I would.

What Happens after Laser Teeth Whitening?
Unless sedation was used, you should be able to leave following your procedure to return to your normal activities. However, you should stay away from anything that may stain your teeth (lipstick, coffee, tobacco products) for at least 48 hours after your treatment. You will encounter sensitivity to hot and cold — this should only last for 3 – 5 days. To maintain your results, you should brush your teeth as soon as possible after having staining food and beverages in addition to tobacco products. At home, you must follow a daily oral hygiene regimen, including brushing and flossing to avoid new stains. Professional dental cleanings twice a year at Dlight Dental can also help remove stains that are darker. If you need to renew your results after a couple of years, you can schedule another laser whitening treatment or ask our team about home teeth whitening choices.
