How soon after laser teeth whitening can I have a dental implant procedure? Or are they irrelevant?

Irrelevant . The two procedures are not related. You can have them done in any order you desire, but consider bleaching first so your new implant crown will match your newly bleached teeth!
Laser Whitening. The jury is still out on the effectiveness of laser whitening being better than traditional tray or strip whitening. That said the implant procedure is unrelated to the whitening procedure. Esthetics come into play when restoring the implants. At that point you want to be happy with the whitening result so you will have the implant restorations match your own teeth.
Whitening/implants. Laser teeth whitening is fast, safe, and noninvasive. While you might not want to have the procedures done on the same day, whitening should have little if any effect on other procedures. However, it’s best to make these decisions with your cosmetic dentist. At your first consultation, explain all of the cosmetic improvements you hope to make, so that a comprehensive treatment plan can be devised.
Soon. The laser light that does teeth whitening does not interfere with your ability to have an implant put on your jaw bone.
Irrelevant. The same appointment. First whitening, followed by implant placement. Good luck.

Does laser teeth whitening whiten the inside of your teeth? At the dentist today, my dentist told me that the insides of my teeth are very stained. It might not be a problem unless I laugh or smile real big, but i'd like to get it taken care of if I can.

Typically . Typically staining of teeth is limited to the outer enamel which lends itself to"whitening" procedures which are variations of bleaching. Superficial stains may also be removed with a dental prophylaxis (cleaning by your hygienist). Beneath the outer layer of enamel of a tooth is a supporting material that is called dentin. Dentin is yellow in color. As we age, or with aggressive brushing, the outer enamel is worn which leads to exposure of this dentin. This will impart a yellow color to the teeth. This condition is not amenable to whitening procedures, instead some form of coverage, such as veneers are required to correct this yellowing. Be advised that the best veneers can also be stained if your are a heavy smoker, tea / coffee drinker or eat pigmented foods. You dentist should be able to recommend the best solution for your situation. Read more...
Usually yes. Teeth color comes from inside (center) of the teeth. Whitening gel goes inside the teeth thru small pores in the enamel. Then it whitens the discolored teeth all around. Some people have lots of plaque on their teeth. If there are stained plaque, that will go away with teeth cleaning... Read more...
No! Whitening your teeth with either the laser or conventional bleaching trays, the only genetic portion of the tooth that will whiten is the enamel. The next layer of the tooth is called dentin and this will certainly not brighten in color. Your dentist was more than likely referring to deep stains in the enamel that might not brighten as well. However other cosmetic procedures can fix this. Read more...
