A variety of whitening products and techniques are available at home or at a dentist’s office to help you achieve a brighter smile. They differ in effectiveness and cost, but none give long-term results.
A light-activated teeth whitening process is one option.
To eliminate surface and/or subsurface stains from eating, drinking, and smoking that leaves stains on or in the tooth enamel, this procedure combines LED blue light technology in combination with the best professional-grade whitening ingredients. Instead of producing heat, the LED light technology creates a blue light that prompts the whitening chemicals to enter the tooth enamel and remove stains. Like the light produced by the sun, blue light belongs to the UV spectrum. In our tooth whitening system, hydrogen peroxide acts as the cleaning agent. Studies have shown that blue light is an excellent activator for hydrogen peroxide, giving your teeth a deeper clean in less time.
Blue LED light therapies are becoming increasingly popular, owing to their perceived safety over UV radiation. You can either buy over-the-counter whitening solutions that involve a blue light or have the treatment done at your dentist’s clinic.
How do LED teeth whitening work?
When exposed to power, an LED, or light-emitting diode, emits only one hue of light on the visible light spectrum. UV, or ultraviolet radiation, was once employed to speed up the whitening process. However, it has been discovered that UV light can result in cancer-causing cell alterations.
As a result, LED lights swiftly supplanted UV lights in whitening operations. LED lights use less power, last a long time, and do not need to be warmed up before use. Although their light is brighter than other types of light, it is also significantly cooler because of its capacity to dissipate heat. All of this makes them an excellent light for tooth whitening.
For one crucial reason, LED lights are used in teeth-whitening procedures: a study has shown that they hasten the chemical processes that remove stains from teeth. As already said, whitening agents last for 24 hours. More stains can be removed during this time since the chemical reactions are accelerated. In the end, your smile will be more radiant the more stains are eradicated.
In general, a single LED teeth whitening procedure can lighten your smile 6–8 shades.
Overall, the use of LED lights during teeth-whitening procedures has increased the efficiency of whitening agents, resulting in smiles that are whiter and brighter. However, the major component of whitening treatment continues to be the whitening chemical. Even though an LED light cannot create results on its own, it can produce amazing results when combined with whitening gels.
How long does it last?
Normally, a white smile lasts between three and six months. This solely depends on your dental health, as well as what you eat, drink, and smoke.
