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.
