BioLase – Professional Laser Whitening

Professional Laser Whitening

What is Teeth Whitening?

Some at-home and in-office whitening treatments vary in actual visible results and lasting effects, which can make it difficult to choose an effective, durable whitening treatment. At Denver Dentistry, we offer BIOLASE Teeth whitening with Epic X Laser, a highly specialized procedure that can produce dramatic whitening results. This innovative light treatment can give our patients up to nine shades whiter teeth in about 20 minutes with little to no discomfort and immediate results.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic service offered to help lighten and brighten teeth. The teeth whitening process helps to remove discoloration or stains from drinks, food, tobacco, or medications. Our whitening process is an accelerated whitening system that produces quick results, and does not damage the teeth or gums.

The whitening gel contains an active ingredient, and this breaks down during the whitening process to allow oxygen to reach the enamel of the teeth. As a result, the teeth become brighter and lighter in color. Professional teeth whitening can whiten teeth up to 10 shades lighter. Most patients see results instantly, or only after a few treatments. Having bright white teeth is important and builds confidence for patients of all ages. We want our patients to be proud of their smile, and our team is here to help our patients achieve the smile they have always wanted.

What Options are Available for Teeth Whitening?

here are a few options that we offer to our patients for teeth whitening. We offer BIOLASE Teeth Whitening with Epic X, KöR Teeth Whitening and Deep Teeth Bleaching for patients that want dramatic results at a rapid pace. These processes removes stains from food and beverages, and patients can see results instantly.

Many of our tooth-whitening patients opt for BIOLASE Teeth Whitening with Epic Laser for three principal reasons:

  • BIOLASE’s special Epic X laser reacts with the hydrogen peroxide gel to accelerate whitening. The treatment itself lasts just under 20 minutes.
  • Results are usually more immediate and dramatic than traditional whitening tools.
  • Patients experience little to no discomfort during or after laser-activated tooth whitening.
We recommend BIOLASE for its efficiency and lasting results. It’s the perfect procedure for patients who want to see results fast, as well as for people who prefer shorter dental visits.

To find out more about our teeth whitening options, and how we can help you achieve a bright white smile, call Denver Dentistry to schedule your appointment.

The foundation of providing safe and personalized holistic care begins by getting to know you and your goals for your oral health and overall health, both short term and long term. Dr. Grabiak will then learn about your family’s dental and medical history, along with your dental and medical history. Afterwards, we begin your exam by taking a sample of your saliva (Sillha), checking for seven different biomarkers. That same day, we will send you home with a report showing how you scored in those different biomarker categories.

The head and neck examination is often overlooked by busy clinicians but it is as crucial as an element of the oral cancer examination. Dr. Grabiak begins his exam outside of the mouth by starting with a soft tissue check of the neck and the jaw. A thorough head and neck examination is essential for detecting early skin cancers, any overdeveloped jaw muscles that may be contributing towards bruxism, and enlarged lymph nodes that may indicate an active virus or infection.

After the extraoral exam, Dr. Grabiak begins his extensive intraoral exam. During Dr. Grabiak’s exam he is evaluating the teeth, uvula, mucosal tissues, tongue, floor of the mouth, hard and soft palate, and the oropharynx. Part of this exam includes taking high-definition photos of the mouth, all at different angles so you can see exactly what he is seeing. Our hygienist will then come in and complete a comprehensive periodontal assessment. In some cases, Dr. Grabiak and your hygienist may recommend additional testing to get to the root cause of the evidence of symptoms they are seeing in your mouth. This entire process takes roughly an hour. In some cases, depending on what Dr. Grabiak and your hygienist had found during their exam we will invite you back for a follow-up appointment called review of findings.

In preparation for the review of findings, Dr. Grabiak and your hygienist will take the time to evaluate all of the data that was collected from your examination and testing to determine your specific needs. At your review of findings appointment Dr. Grabiak will sit down with you one on one to review the data that was collected from your appointment, along with any recommendations. This allows you the time to ask Dr. Grabiak any questions that you may have about your treatment recommendations and expectations from treatment.
