How Often Should You Use LED Teeth Whitening?
Who doesn’t want beautiful, white teeth when they smile? Unfortunately, not all of us have that kind of smile. Years of coffee, wine, or tea drinking, food stains, smoking, and even neglect often leave us with off-white or yellowed teeth. After a while, even brushing your teeth twice a day doesn’t do the trick to get rid of surface stains. So, we hold back our smiles with self-conscious awareness. We shy away from pictures, our selfies change overtime and we just aren’t that confident anymore.
Thankfully, you don’t have to settle for less than a beautiful, pearly white smile! There are safe whitening treatments for all your teeth whitening needs, even if you have sensitive teeth. These treatments provide you a lot of flexibility; so you can whiten your teeth at your comfort, at home or on-the go.
What is LED Teeth Whitening?
LED teeth whitening is an excellent choice for getting whiter teeth faster with professional results, without using harsh and harmful chemicals that strip away the tooth’s enamel. An LED whitening system consists of a light that works in conjunction with a tooth-whitening agent, speeding up the whitening process and leaving you with a brighter smile.
How Does it Work?
Enamel is porous, allowing staining agents to be absorbed into the tooth. When you use a tooth whitener, the bleaching chemicals reach into the tooth enamel and set off a chemical reaction. This oxidation reaction can then break apart the staining compounds.
The LED light helps to decompose the peroxide faster, confirmed in a 2012 study.
Commonly used whitening agents are hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. Peroxide can partially penetrate the layers of the teeth, removing compounds that cause discoloration. Used by itself, it can be too harsh. Carbamide peroxide is a mixture that causes a slow-acting, gentler reaction on the teeth.
Carbomer is typically used as a thickening agent, but when used with peroxide is a powerful whitening agent.
For sensitive teeth, we designed activated charcoal-based teeth whitener products that are also highly effective. Our charcoal toothpaste uses organic bamboo charcoal, while our charcoal powder uses coconut charcoal. Both forms of charcoal work by drawing out stain-causing toxins from your teeth.
Is it Safe?
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide-based tooth whitening products are both safe and effective. Another study also showed that when the manufacturer’s instructions are followed, hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide-based tooth whitening is safe and effective.
Carbamide has also been assessed as safe to use in cosmetic products. Although not a “natural” product, carbomer has no documented safety problems and is listed as safe by the Cosmetic Independent Review.
In addition, the use of LED lighting is safer than UV lighting. LED light is a cool light, whereas other lights produce heat, which can damage the tooth enamel.
How Often Should You Use It?
Use 15 minutes once a day for 21 days, and then one to two times weekly to maintain that beautiful smile. You’ll see visible results just after an hour of your first use. The Cleaner Smile kits last long, upto a minimum of 6 months based on your usage; this makes it a perfect home whitening solution for longer terms.
As with anything else, it’s important to follow the directions and not over use it.
We offer Regular and Maximum Strength teeth whitening kits. Our peroxide-free Charcoal Dental Care Kit is perfect for sensitive teeth. Make sure you never run out of whitening gel for your kit, purchase whitening pens that perfectly complement each of your LED kits.
