When looking for the latest and most exciting in teeth whitening kits with lights, it is important to keep a few important things in mind. The first thing to remember is the intensity of the light source itself. There are basically two kinds: standard home units and those with red and blue lights. Both can be effective in whitening your teeth but the difference lies mainly in the strength of their light sources. These two light sources tend to be stronger and therefore should not be used in tandem with each other.
Most teeth whitening kits with lights will contain either a single light or a pair of them, usually blue and red. They may also include bleaching agents. Bleaching agents are used because they add that extra bit of brightening to the whitening process. The effect is often compared to the effect of flashing your curtains. Bleaching agents tend to work very fast however and should be used with caution.
A typical product will contain either a gel or a paste. The gel is placed in a tray and lit up. As the trays are moved over your teeth the bleaching agent will work its magic. Typically a whiter smile can be achieved after the first application and after repeated applications of the result is very dramatic.
However this isn’t the end of the line; some people have found that using a combination of the gel and the whiting agent works better than just a whitening kit with a single light. For those who don’t have the time to apply the gel themselves it may be worth considering a kit with a combination of LED light and whiting agent. The LED lights used are similar to those used on electric pens. LED lights designed for home use tend to be slightly brighter than the ones used in dental practices, but they are still bright and quite portable.
The result of a whitening kit with a combination of lights is a whiter smile that lasts a lot longer than the best whitening gel. It is also a safer way to get that celebrity smile that you have always wanted. In terms of safety the main thing to look out for is to make sure that the kit you choose is made by a well-known and reputable company. This can usually be checked on the company’s website.
If you want a really simple teeth whitening kit you can always try a bleaching LED light tray. The bleaching gel is stored in a clear plastic cup and the LED light tray just fits into it. You can then fit the plastic tray into your mouth so that the gel is applied directly. To do this simply press the plastic tray into your mouth and hold it there for a few seconds. Then remove it and your teeth will be whitened as normal.
