Cosmetic LED Teeth Whitening


 

LED Teeth Whitening is designed to whiten the color of your teeth safely, quickly and is affordable. Our gels are made in the US. The glycerin we use is plant-derived and kosher. Teeth whitening is a simple process. Whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide and/or carbamide peroxide. These active ingredients break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter. 
 
Are there any contraindications?
This treatment CANNOT be used by pregnant or lactating women, people under the age of 14, people with gum disease, open cavities, leaking fillings, or other dental conditions, or people with a known allergy to peroxide and/or to aloe vera. People that have had braces removed should wait 6 months for cement residue to wear off before getting a teeth whitening treatment and people with a piercing or other metal objects in the oral cavity should remove them before the treatment as they may turn black. If I feel a sharp pain on a particular tooth during the treatment I should stop the treatment and contact my dentist since this could be a sign of an open cavity. 
After Care Instructions:

TOOTH SENSITIVITY: Although uncommon, some people can experience some tooth sensitivity

during the first 24 - 48 hours after the whitening treatment. People with existing sensitivity, recently

cracked teeth, micro-cracks, open cavities, leaking fillings, or other dental conditions that cause

sensitivity may find that these conditions increase or prolong tooth sensitivity after the treatment. If

you experience tooth sensitivity after the treatment, you can use SensodyneTM toothpaste to ease the

discomfort. Brush your teeth with this toothpaste until tooth sensitivity goes away.

If you have tooth sensitivity do not begin with your touch-up pen treatment at home. Wait until the

sensitivity goes away and then begin with the home treatment.

RELAPSE: After the treatment, it is natural for teeth color to regress somewhat over time. This is

normal and should be very gradual, but it can be accelerated by exposing the teeth to various staining

agents, such as coffee, tea, tobacco, red wine, colas, citrus drinks and fruits, etc. Do not eat or drink

anything except water for the first hour after the treatment because the gel opens the pores of

the enamel and makes the teeth very vulnerable to staining agents. If you purchased a touch-up

pen or a take-home kit (which is highly recommended in order to avoid color regression) be

aware that the pores of your enamel will remain open for as long as you use it so you should

refrain from staining agents till you stop using the pen. You can resume your normal habits 24

hours after you conclude the touch-up pen treatment. Also, be aware that drinks and food are not

the only things that can stain our teeth when the pores are open; lipstick, for example, can stain too.

Do NOT apply lipstick soon after whitening your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any guarantees?


Although most natural teeth can benefit from a teeth whitening treatment, I understand that everyone’s teeth are different and that results will vary. I understand that people with yellowish teeth generally get the best results and that if my teeth have spots due to tetracycline use (grayish tint) or fluorosis, these will be difficult to whiten. Also, if I have artificial teeth, caps, crowns, veneers, porcelain, composite or other restorative materials, I shouldn’t expect dramatic results from this treatment because the peroxide gel will not whiten (or damage) artificial dental work. Also, I am aware that my teeth will never be whiter than the white color my genes naturally allow.




What are the potential risks?


Although whitening treatments are generally safe, I understand that some of the potential complications of this treatment include, but are not limited to:




Is there any gum/lip irritation?


Whitening gel that comes in contact with gum tissue or the lips during the treatment may cause inflammation or whitening of theses areas. This is due to inadvertent exposure of small areas of those tissues to the whitening gel. The inflammation and/or whitening of gums and lips is transient, and the color change of the gum tissue will reverse within 30 minutes. I may feel a stinging and tingling sensation on these soft tissues during the treatment if the gel comes in contact with them.




Is there any allergic reactions?


A small percentage of people are allergic to peroxide. Should allergic reaction occur, temporary blisters and swelling on lips can occur.




Is there any tooth sensitivity?


Although uncommon, some customers can experience some tooth sensitivity during the first 24 hours after the whitening treatment. People with existing sensitivity, recently cracked teeth, micro-cracks, open cavities, leaking fillings, exposed roots, or other dental conditions that cause sensitivity may find that those conditions increase or prolong tooth sensitivity after the treatment.




Will I experience any tooth spots or streaks?


Some customers may develop white spots or streaks on their teeth due to CALCIUM DEPOSITS that naturally occur in teeth. These spots are NOT caused by the peroxide gel. The gel just brings the already existing calcium deposits out and makes them visible again. These usually diminish over time.




Is this treatment permanent?


After the treatment, it is natural for teeth color to regress somewhat over time. This is natural and should be very gradual, but it can be accelerated by exposing the teeth to various staining agents, such as coffee, tea, tobacco, red wine, colas, etc. I realize that I should not eat or drink anything except water during 60 minutes after the treatment because the gel opens the pores of my enamel and makes my teeth very vulnerable to staining agents. If I purchase a touch-up pen, I realize that my pores will remain open for as long as I use it so I should refrain from staining agents till I stop using the pen. Only 24 hours after I conclude the touch-up pen treatment can I resume my normal habits. I understand that the results of the treatment are not intended to be permanent and that secondary, repeat or touch-up treatments may be needed for me to maintain the color I desire for my teeth.
