People often want to make their teeth whiter without the hassle of going to a dental clinic. Currently, people can do this at home using laser teething kits.
Laser teething kits allow you to whiten your teeth in minutes, but they must be used properly in order for them to produce good results. There are certain things that you need to know in order for these kits be successful and give you what you want — a whiter smile.
There are many different types of laser teeth whitening kits. The most popular ones are those that use a laser called the Diode Laser. You can get this type of kit in three different wavelengths: two yellow and one blue. In order for you to get the best results from your teeth whitening kit, you need to know how each one works and how to apply it properly.
How To Apply Your Laser Teeth Whitening Kit
In order for you to get the best results from your teeth whitening liquid, you need to apply it only on the parts of your teeth that have tints of yellow or brown. You will also want to make sure that these areas are completely dry before applying the toothpaste.
You also need to be sure that the product is completely dry before you begin using your teeth whitening kit. If there are any droplets left on the toothpaste after it dries, they will not be able to absorb the light from the laser. You will only get a white mark if enough of the teeth become covered. When you apply toothpaste on your teeth, you want to make sure that it gets absorbed into all of your tints and stains.
You will only get a good result with your teeth whitening kit if you use it every day in order to keep up its effectiveness. The more you use it, the sooner you will notice better results in terms of whiter teeth. However, you should not use it for more than two weeks consecutively. It is very important that you give your teeth enough time to rest in between treatments.
Over time, the effectiveness of your laser teeth whitening kit will decline. It is also susceptible to environmental factors such as heat, moisture and chemicals. Therefore, it is a good idea to replace it after its effectiveness starts declining or if the color starts changing.
It is also a good idea to apply your laser teeth whitening kit after you have brushed and flossed your teeth with toothpaste and mouthwash that contains fluoride.
Laser teeth whitening kits at home do more harm than good to small businesses
The effects of laser tooth whitening kits on people’s oral health isn’t a new topic, and one with heated debates forming on both sides of the argument. However, my concern with these products is not just the debate around their safety, but rather the effect they might have on local dental offices.
If you’re unaware of what laser teeth whitening kits are, let me explain: they are a long tube that goes in your mouth that has lights at either end and shines down to your teeth (there’s also mouth guards you wear). The light is supposed to stimulate the production of melanin in the cells, which will make your teeth whiter.
Home whitening kits actually matter?
These kits are being sold online for as little as $60, though advanced kits can be purchased from dentists for upwards of $3,000. While it’s understandable that people would want a cheaper way to whiten their teeth; do results from these at-home whitening kits actually matter?
Although these at-home whitening kits are cheap and produce results that are less than satisfactory for most people; the results usually fade fairly quickly (within a few months). This means more ‘business’ for dentists who need to fix their clients’ smile after purchasing one of these products.
What’s even better, is that people are not just using these products on their teeth, but also on their gums. The cheapness of the product means that many people purchase one and then use it before seeing a dental professional. Therefore, when they finally go to see a local dentist for other reasons, their gums are beyond repair and need to be worked on more heavily. If this isn’t a bad enough business headache for local dentists, purchasing one of these kits could actually do more harm than good to your teeth in the long run.
Dr. Mark Wolff, a professor in NYU’s Department of Periodontology shared his knowledge on the topic. “If you use it too long, the sensitivity in teeth can increase and make your teeth more sensitive to hot or cold foods, or even air.”
These kits aren’t just causing issues for dentists either. It seems that most of their customers are complaining about the results not being great enough in the long run. Surgeon and dental expert Dr. Maurice Garcia said: “Patients want perfect Hollywood smiles but they don’t want to commit to perfection with all-on-four or dental implants — they want it done cheaply.
