TEETH WHITENING

ALL ABOUT TEETH WHITENING? 

Teeth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look. Teeth Whitening is not a one-time procedure. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter colour.

The outer layer of a tooth is called the enamel. The color of natural teeth is created by the reflection and scattering of light off the enamel, combined with the color of the dentin under it. Your genes affect the thickness and smoothness of the enamel. Thinner enamel allows more of the colour of the dentin to show through. Having smoother or rougher enamel also affects the reflection of light and therefore the color. Everyday, a thin coating (pellicle) forms on the enamel and picks up stains. Tooth enamel also contains pores that can hold stains. 

 

The most common reasons for teeth to get yellow or stained are: 

  • Using tobacco 

  • Drinking dark-colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine 

  • Not taking good care of your teeth 

Aging makes teeth less bright as the enamel gets thinner and the dentin becomes darker.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW: 

What is LED Light? 

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. It releases light when an electrical current is present. The light can be any color on the visible spectrum, such as blue-violet or red. LED lights are very bright, yet they don’t put off as much heat as incandescent or halogen lamps.

Does the LED Light really whiten teeth? 

LED light won’t whiten your teeth on its own. Similar to other whitening methods, you will need to apply a whitening agent to your teeth. The LED light speeds up the reaction of the whitening agent. 

It’s a fast, easy way to whiten your teeth. And, when used with an all-natural whitening agent, it’s non-toxic and incredibly safe. 

Is the LED Light safe? 

Certain types of light can cause health concerns. For example, most people are concerned about exposure to UV light and the side effects associated with it. Are you worried about light exposure and the potential for an increased risk of cancer? Well, you don’t have to worry at all with LED light! LED light is visible. That means it won’t cause ionizing radiation. Whitening your teeth with LED light won’t cause cell mutations or other harmful side effects.

How Long Does it Last?

LED Teeth Whitening can last between 6-8 months if proper aftercare is practiced. You can whiten your teeth all you want, but if you keep your bad habits, your smile won’t stay nice for long. You should already be brushing and flossing on a daily basis. This helps remove the residue from food and drink and prevents future discolouration. If you smoke, you’ll have to kick that bad habit to the curb. Smoking is dangerous to your dental health. It discolors your teeth and can lead to gum disease, tooth loss, and mouth cancer. 

Having a whiter smile can be life-changing. You'll have more confidence doing everyday things like taking selfies or talking to your friends. It’s time to invest in an all-natural, completely safe LED teeth whitening with Lashed Toronto. In just a half hour - hour, your smile will be better than ever!
