Here at Moore Smiles, a Louisville family dentistry practice, we care about our patients. We want to make sure you have the best information possible when considering your oral health, including cosmetic dentistry procedures. One question patients frequently ask us “Is laser teeth whitening safe?”

Many patients are interested in laser teeth whitening, but are nervous about the safety and effectiveness of the procedure. That’s perfectly normal. You should be cautious when it comes to anything related to your oral health. That means having a conversation with your trusted family dentist, and getting his opinion bearing your personal dental health history in mind.

Your family dentist already is very familiar with your dental health history and your specific conditions that could be affected by a cosmetic dentistry procedure like laser teeth whitening. He can give you the best advice possible as to whether laser whitening is a good idea for you in particular. For example, if you have extreme discoloration or some other conditions, another option like dental veneers might be a better option.

That said, if laser teeth whitening were not a generally safe procedure, it wouldn’t be approved for use, and our dentists wouldn’t offer it in our practice.

If you’re considering laser teeth whitening, call our office and schedule a consultation. Our dentists will be happy to talk through all the aspects of the procedure with you in our relaxed, comfortable
environment.
