Everything You Need To Know About LED Teeth Whitening [VIDEO]

Feeling like your teeth aren’t as white as they could be? There is a variety of factors that cause teeth to become discolored. The most common include smoking, drinking coffee, poor dietary choices, and medications. 

Aging can also impact the brightness and color of our teeth. As we get older, the enamel starts to thin and is more susceptible to stains. Having a healthy layer of enamel is crucial. This creates a protective layer that helps fight discoloration.

Are you sick of horrible-tasting bleaching chemicals? Do you want to whiten your teeth without making them super sensitive? Want to avoid expensive trips to the dentist for whitening treatments? If this sounds like you, you should consider this easy, affordable, at-home option… 

An LED teeth whitening kit! By using natural whitening ingredients and LED light, you can smile with confidence.

What is LED Light?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. It releases light when an electrical current is present. The light can be any color on the visible spectrum, such as blue-violet or red. LED lights are very bright, yet they don’t put off as much heat as incandescent or halogen lamps.

LED lights are highly efficient. The LED is always at its highest intensity, even without a warm-up period. This means you can immediately apply LED lights to your teeth after they are turned on.

LED Light's Whitening Power

LED light won’t whiten your teeth on its own. Similar to other whitening methods, you will need to apply a whitening agent to your teeth. The LED light speeds up the reaction of the whitening agent. 

It’s a fast, easy way to whiten your teeth. And, when used with an all-natural whitening agent, it’s non-toxic and incredibly safe. 

How Safe is LED Light?

Certain types of light can cause health concerns. For example, most people are concerned about exposure to UV light and the side effects associated with it. Are you worried about light exposure and the potential for an increased risk of cancer? Well, you don’t have to worry at all with LED lights! 

The LED light is visible. That means it won’t cause ionizing radiation. Whitening your teeth with LED light won’t cause cell mutations or other harmful side effects.

Another awesome benefit of blue LED light is its antibacterial properties. Studies have found that blue light kills off the bacteria that causes tartar build-up on the teeth. You can also lessen the risk of gum disease, cavities, and other dental health issues. 

Have we convinced you yet to use an LED teeth whitening system…?

Go All-Natural

At-home LED teeth whitening kits to seem to be all the rage right now. If you’ve thought about getting one, stay away from the kits that use harmful bleaching agents. Yes, they’ll whiten your teeth, but they taste bad and can cause sensitivity issues. 

Instead, go the natural route. Natural whitening LED kits to use safe and all-natural ingredients that will brighten your smile without causing negative side effects.

Some of the most popular ingredients used in natural whitening kits include:

  • Activated charcoal 
  • Olive oil 
  • Clays

Essential oils are primarily added for flavoring. However, they also have beneficial properties for your teeth and gums.

Keeping Your White Smile

You can whiten your teeth all you want, but if you keep your bad habits, your smile won’t stay nice for long. You should already be brushing and flossing on a daily basis. This helps remove the residue from food and drink and prevents future discoloration.  

If you smoke, you’ll have to kick that bad habit to the curb. Smoking is dangerous to your dental health. It discolors your teeth and can lead to gum disease, tooth loss, and mouth cancer.

The Most Terrifying Experience of My Life...

It's true -- I've always hated going to the dentist. Everything about it just made me cringe. 

So when I went for my first teeth whitening session a while back, needless to say I was less than excited. But my umpteen-cup-a-day coffee habit had steadily turned my pearly whites into a dull gray. I had to do something.

HOOOOOLY CRAP! I thought I was going to go through the ceiling. The pain was so severe, like nothing else I had ever felt.
