About Laser Teeth Whitening
Many of the things people enjoy to partake in (tea, coffee, candy, sodas, tobacco, berries, red wine, and more) can stain the dental enamel and cause a dingy, yellow smile. In recent years, multiple teeth whitening products have appeared in stores, but none of them are as effective and fast as laser teeth whitening by our dentists at DentalWorks - Fort Mill in Tega Cay, SC. In less than one hour, years of stains can be removed using safe, advanced dental laser light allowing teeth to be many shades whiter. Our dentists can customize and control the procedure to help each patient safely achieve their whitening goals and keep their results longer.
"I had my first visit to see Dr. Hansen, and it was a good one. He and his staff were very professional and friendly. Looks like I picked the right dentist!"- M.P. / Google / Aug 28, 2017
"Great and friendly staff. My appointment was at 8 and was seen by Mr. Hansen at 8. Definitely recommend this place."- M.R. / Google / Jul 31, 2017
"Fabulous office. I have been having weird issues with my insurance company, resulting in me not having been to the dentist for a full year and now I've got several issues with my teeth. Dr. Hansen (he told me to call him Richard, what a cool guy) was the most friendly, helpful dentist I have EVER been to. I'm pretty young and have found that a lot of doctors can be very patronizing to younger patients, but not with Dr. Hansen or any of the employees I spoke to. They are, however, VERY informative and answered every question I had under the sun.I had to drive 50 minutes to get there (I live in NC) because they're the closest provider that takes my insurance, but even when I get new insurance and can go to someone closer I will still return to this office.Karen, Rose, and the front office guy (his name escapes me!) are the bomb, super organized AND they sorted out everything with my insurance even though there were some technical difficulties. Tiffany (she took my x-rays and did my cleaning) was incredibly knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor.I read some negative reviews from a few years ago and got nervous before I went in, but I think that they've gotten new staff or those reviews weren't legit, because I can't believe that was the same office. I wish I could give them more than five stars, I am more than satisfied with this office and excited to have found a dentist that I don't mind going to (even if the drive sucks)!"- E.M. / Yelp / Jul 25, 2017

What to Expect
Laser teeth whitening is done by our dentists at their office in Tega Cay, SC, and while anesthesia is not needed, sedation options are available for patients with worry or a prominent gagging or choking feeling. For maximized results, the teeth will be professionally cleaned and polished before the whitening treatment, then the teeth will be dried and a protective barrier will be applied over the gums. After the teeth and gums are ready, our dentists will brush on the whitening agent to the the teeth and then activate the gel with a special light. Once the whitening gel is triggered, stains will be removed from the enamel for several minutes until our dentists remove the gel. Depending on the patient's current enamel color and whitening goals, the gel will be applied up to three times. Once the whitening service is done, our dentists will remove the and gum barrier before fully rinsing the mouth.
After the whitening procedure is completed, patients should avoid staining foods and liquids as well as products with tobacco as much as possible to maintain the results of their in-office teeth whitening treatment. Some patients may get some sensitivity after the procedure, which should be discussed with our dentists if it lasts longer than 3 - 5 days after the whitening service. Patients should continue to follow a good home oral care routine and visit our dentists in Tega Cay, SC twice a year for a professional cleaning and once a year for a dental exam to minimize future staining. With good oral care, the results of an in-office teeth whitening procedure can last for several years and be touched-up as needed.
