Teeth Whitening Lights
Teeth can be whitened at home with over-the-counter solutions. You can whiten your teeth at home with your help or consultation with your dentist's.
From whitening toothpaste to LED light bulbs, whitening uses three lights:
UV (ultraviolet) light:
It whitens teeth. The Laser UV light whitens the teeth, and it is done in a dentist's office for safety.
Light emitted from a tungsten core. Like the UV light, it should be done at the dentist's office.
LED (light-emitting diode):
Emits blue light to speed up dental whitening without harming enamel. Some over-the-counter products do employ LED blue light, which can be used at home as well as in the dentist’s office. (2)
What is LED Teeth Whitening?
Tooth whitening is any process that lightens the color of a tooth. Whitening is accomplished by either the physical removal of the stain or a chemical reaction that lightens the tooth color.
In a research that was published in the Journal of Conservative Dentistry, light-activated whitening outperformed non-light-activated whitening. (3)
