Is Cold Light Whitening Safe?
Published on  Updated on  

Cold light whitening is a chemical whitening method that does not require grinding teeth.


The principle of the cold light whitening is to use the peroxide in the whitening agent to bleach the teeth under the cold light irradiation environment (isolating harmful ultraviolet rays and infrared rays), that is, the pigment decolorization, so as to achieve the effect of teeth whitening.


Clinical experiments show that cold light whitening technology can generally brighten 5-14 VITA levels, which is one of the more mainstream teeth whitening methods today.


What is the safety of cold light whitening?

Regular cold light whitening technology is safe, and it will generally not cause damage to the teeth if it is properly operated. However, the whitening agent contains oxidative components, which may damage the gums, so avoid contact with the gums during the process, and rinse your mouth with warm water in time after the end.


Medical cold light whitening and household cold light whitening

The hospital's cold light whitening uses a high-power whitening instrument, which can quickly achieve a whitening effect in a small number of treatments, and the effect can be maintained for 1-2 years. It has the advantages of safety, speed and lastingness.


Household teeth whitening machine is also becoming more and more popular, and the principle is basically the same as that of cold light whitening in hospitals. It should be noted that you must choose products from regular manufacturers, and use them according to the instructions. Do not overuse and over-whiten your teeth. Healthy teeth are yellowish, and it is not recommended to use chemical products to pursue excessive false whiteness.


In addition, it should be noted that the effect of cold light whitening is not permanent. We can prolong the time of teeth whitening through daily good eating habits, oral cleaning care and regular whitening care.


Cold light whitening is not suitable for all people. The following conditions are not suitable for cold light whitening.

• People with tooth decay and tooth loss.
