Premier Laser Systems' Multi-Operatory Dentalaser (MOD) laser has been cleared by the US FDA for tooth whitening. The argon laser is used to accelerate the chemical whitening process of a number of tooth bleaching and whitening products from six different manufacturers. Premier Laser has formed a joint marketing agreement with Stardent International Labs, which is based in Salt Lake City, Utah, to market the system in the US. Premier Laser, which is based in Irvine, California, says that the system costs $9,000 to set up compared with $40,000 for a competing whitening centre, and the whitening reagents cost about $25 per procedure.
