How Safe are LED Teeth Whitening Kits?

Posted on 1/11/2021 by Dr. J. Derek Tieken
How Safe are LED Teeth Whitening Kits?There are a lot of options out there for people who want to whiten their teeth or get rid of yellow stains, and one of those options is the LED teeth whitening kit. However, whenever you're thinking of opting for any whitening option, you should always consider its safety first as such kits can often be dangerous as well.

You can also consult Dr. J. Derek Tieken and Dr. Tieken at Tieken Smiles Dentistry for further advice regarding teeth whitening and which options will be suitable for your teeth.

How Do LED Teeth Whitening Kits Work?

These kits basically have a mouth guard that you fit over your teeth and turn it on. Then, this mouth guard emits a special light that activates teeth whitening agents on your teeth. This helps whiten your teeth over time for a cleaner and brighter set of teeth. Different kits use a different whitening system.

Some rely on bleaching solutions while others use non-bleach based solutions. There is also a difference in the strength of these solutions. Those kits at the dentist are often stronger than home kits. Moreover, such teeth whitening kits at the dentist usually involve a lot more than a simple mouth guard.

Are They Safe?

Usually these kits are safe. You can sometimes experience an increase in teeth sensitivity after using such kits, but there are many remedies for that as well. The main thing to consider is the quality and strength of the kits as sometimes they can be overly abrasive and harmful for the teeth and gums.

Whenever you are in doubt about anything, it's always a good idea to consult your dentist and ask them about it first. They will know your concerns and have much more knowledge to guide you towards the best options.
