How an LED Teeth Whitening System Works

Posted on 5/24/2021 by Louis McDonald, D.D.S.
How an LED Teeth Whitening System WorksCan you really use LED light to whiten your teeth? This teeth whitening technique differs from the traditional hydrogen peroxide solution to remove staining. However, most people don't understand how LED light can make a difference on their teeth, and they're usually skeptical until they see the final results.

At McDonald Dental, Dr. Louis McDonald and Dr. McDonaldwe offer different teeth whitening solutions that are not only effective, but safe too.

What is an LED Teeth Whitening System and How Does it Work?

Light Emitting Diode or LED is a type of light that activated the teeth' whitening agents (bleach and non-bleach products). These solutions remove stains on and below the teeth' surface depending on the product you use and its strength. While you can purchase these LED whitening systems at the store, we recommend getting this treatment from a dental professional.

We have better equipment and treatment systems, including whitening agents, applicators, mouth trays, and LED lights.

LED Teeth Whitening vs. Other At-Home Treatments

Whitening results depend on your teeth' natural shade, the whitening gel type, and your treatment duration. Over the counter whitening products, such as whitening toothpaste or strips, only whiten your teeth' surface. They do the job, but not as effective as an LED teeth whitening system. However, you can use whitening toothpaste to further improve the results of the LED whitening treatment.

Teeth Whitening and Oral Care

You must remember that LED whitening systems do not clean your teeth, so they're not substitutes for regular oral care. Make sure to brush and floss regularly after every meal to prevent different oral conditions from developing.

At McDonald Dental, Dr. Louis McDonald or Dr. McDonald have many options available to brighten your smile including LED teeth whitening systems. To schedule an appointment with us, call us at (346) 250-3575 today.
