Laser Teeth Whitening $950

Our teeth get discoloured over time especially if we consume coffee, tea and red wine. We can reverse this by applying a special gel to our teeth and leaving it to bleach or whiten over time. This can be done at home using a custom-made mouthguard. The effects are usually seen after 2 weeks.  Alternatively, it can be done in the clinic using a laser or blue LED light or laser over one or two sessions, each lasting an hour or less. Laser teeth whitening takes the least time to achieve a satisfactory result.  If the stains are very deep or dark, porcelain or zirconia veneers or crowns may be required.

Laser teeth whitening uses a special amplified light which can quicken the speed at which your teeth can be whitened, when Laser teeth whitening uses a special amplified light which can quicken the speed at which your teeth can be whitened, when compared to chair-side whitening using ordinary LED blue light. Both these methods are more effective and less time-consuming than using a home kit. The surrounding gums are first covered and a concentrated bleaching gel applied to teeth that are to be whitened. The light or laser is then applied for around an hour to achieve the desired new shade. Laser teeth whitening is thus the most effective of the 3 methods available.

What to expect in the clinic during treatment

In general it is painless.

  • A protective layer of plastic is first placed over the gums as the chemicals used can irritate the gums.

  • A bleaching gel, typically hydrogen peroxide is then placed on the tooth.

  • A light is then used to quicken the reaction.

At Precious Dentistry, we use a special light known as a laser which speeds up the reaction and is more gentle on the tooth making it faster and less uncomfortable. However, some patients may feel some sensitivity or a tingling sensation, in which case the treatment can be divided over two visits.

Things to Avoid immediately after treatment

  • Coloured foods and sauces - beetroot and curries

  • Coloured fruits - blueberries and tomatoes

  • Drinks which stain teeth - coffee, tea and red wine

  • Mouthrinses which contain the chemical chlorhexidine ​

Maintenance

While teeth will slowly darken over time, you can prolong the effect of teeth whitening through the following measures:

  • Good oral hygiene - brush your teeth at least twice a day and use dental floss to clean between teeth

  • Use of home-care kits or teeth whitening toothpastes

  • Return to the dentist for regular check-ups and teeth cleaning

  • Return for a short session of whitening periodically, if you consume lots of coffee, tea or red wine ​

 

Limitations of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a fairly effective and cost-effective way of lightening our teeth. However, while some stains are superficial, others may affect the entire body of the tooth and have a deep discolouration which cannot be removed either by conventional cleaning or tooth whitening procedures. In such cases, we would need to remove the outer discoloured layer and replace it with a new outer "shell" termed a veneer. If the stains are very dark, even porcelain may be unable to mask the underlying colour and a more opaque but still aesthetic material, Zirconia, may be required.

Health Screening Guidelines, Academy of Medicine, Singapore, Mar 2019.

Advances in technology have resulted in the development of lab tests and scans which have a certain predictive value for disease. However, many of these lack sensitivity and specificity and may not be necessary in the absence of risk factors. Please consult your doctor for suitability, cost-benefit and risks of tests requested

Pap Smear every 3 years from age 25; HPV test every 5 years from age 30. Breast self-examination should be carried out monthly from age 20. Mammograms recommended every 2 years from Age 50. Consider annually from age 40 if at risk. Ultrasound of the breast is not a substitute for mammograms but is preferred by some as there is no radiation involved. May also be useful for patients with dense breast tissue.

Recommendations for Cancer

Screening Biomarkers, commonly called tumour or cancer markers are included as they are frequently requested but lack sensitivity and specificity and should not be considered a definitive test for cancer. However may be considered for patients in high risk groups. Colonoscopy recommended every 5-10 years from age 50, and dependent on risk factors. Gastroscopy should be included if at risk of stomach cancer. Colonoscopy every 5 -10 years from age 50, frequency risk factor dependent. Liver: Ultrasound Abdomen 6-monthly for patients with Hepatitis-B. Lung: Low-dose CT Lung yearly for heavy smokers from age 55. Nose: Nasoendoscopy and biomarker (EBV) for patients at risk. Prostate: PSA biomarker for men above 50, before 50 if at risk. Stomach: Gastroscopy every 3 years in high risk groups. Recommended screening age and frequency dependent on risk factors. ​

You may opt to exclude a Medical Assessment if you have your own doctor. However, a medical report will not be provided. Additional or alternative tests may be suggested after assessing risk factors. If any test is not required, price will be adjusted accordingly.
