Q.

Which method is better?

Hi,

My dentist says he can whiten my teeth for me using a homekit bleaching product and I believe it's a safe method these days etc. But my health spa says they can do it with new laser technology that isn't abraisive etc - it only brings your teeth back to it's natural shade (as when you were born) - can you tell me which of these methods is better/safer/longlasting etc.? Obviously they both think THEIR method is better.

Thanks

If your spa has a dentist I would do the laser treatment at the spa ONLY IF a dentist is overseeing the procedure. This method usually lasts longer but I strongly advise that only a dental proffessional use the laser.
