Teeth Whitening With Dr. Kenn Kakosian DDS: How BriteSmile Works

Last updated 7 years ago

A number of factors can affect the coloring of your teeth, including genes, smoking, drinking coffee, not brushing well or simply age. For some, discolored teeth can be a source of embarrassment while for others it is merely a nuisance. In both cases, most will ask their dentist about teeth-whitening options. With BriteSmile’s effective combination of both gel and laser light, you can have a white smile, thanks to cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kenn Kakosian, DDS, in NYC. Here are the basics of how BriteSmile works:

  • BriteSmile Light: Some people may see BriteSmile stations at their cosmetic dentist’s office and assume the system utilizes only a laser. The blue laser light applied to your teeth is specially designed to whiten teeth safely and effectively. This light is safe on your teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues and works in conjunction with BriteSmile gel to achieve a white smile.
  • BriteSmile Gel: The gel placed on your teeth is similar to typical whitening gels that your cosmetic dentist may use, but is gentler because it contains less hydrogen peroxide than most other whitening gels. The light placed on the gel enhances its function, thus speeding up the process of whitening so you can see dazzling results in only one hour.
  • Safety: Your dentist or cosmetic dentist must be certified to use the BriteSmile system, ensuring your safety at all times throughout the procedure. The professionalism of your cosmetic dentist, paired with the gentleness of the equipment, gives you a white smile in no time without any hassle or pain.

If you are interested in enjoying the benefits of a BriteSmile treatment and whiter teeth, contact Dr. Kenn Kakosian, DDS, by calling (888) 775-8116 or by visiting our website. Dr. Kakosian specializes in Invisalign, veneers, and many other general and cosmetic dentistry procedures.
