One often reads on various pages about the damaging effects of light on the gums and, even more seriously, on the teeth. However, many different types of light are also used in dental practices, including UV radiation. Today, the question is whether UV light actually has a damaging effect and how OnlySmile is responding to this criticism.
Light has several positive properties on whitening products, especially the gel that comes with them. Light generally ensures that the teeth can absorb the gel more efficiently and, above all, faster. That is also the reason why a lamp is included with OnlySmile. However, light is a form of energy and can therefore have damaging effects on your gums and other sensitive areas in the mouth. The effect should be lasting, especially with UV light. But what is true about this claim? Is light bad per se?
Under no circumstance. There are also different types of light, all of which have different advantages and disadvantages. Much more important than the light used is the lamp used, a distinction being made here between warm and cold lamps. Warm lamps emit heat when you use them, and the heat generated when you use them can burn your gums. But even that only happens if it is used improperly. For this reason, UV light from warm lamps is usually only used in dental practices, where the employees have the necessary knowledge and skills for safe use. However, this raises the question of why warm lamps are used at all? Warm lamps have the property of opening the dentinal canals of the teeth even more than cold-wave lamps. On the one hand, this ensures better penetration of the bleach into the teeth, but it does involve the risk of dehydration with subsequent dentin hypersensitivity.
We at OnlySmile also offer a lamp in our tooth whitening set, as this means that, as already mentioned above, significantly faster and stronger results can be achieved. At OnlySmile, the well-being of our customers is very important. That is why we do not use a warm lamp, but a cold LED lamp. In contrast to UV radiation, this light is not warm and therefore does not cause any burns in the sensitive area of the mouth. Other inconveniences such as increased sensitivity to pain are also reduced to a minimum. As before, however, it also applies here that this only applies to proper application. We therefore ask you to always read the package insert carefully before using it.
Another important criterion for the use of light in connection with gel is that both should ideally be coordinated. This is the case with OnlySmile, both the lamp and the gel come from one company and thus ensure maximum efficiency.
In conclusion, it can be said that with OnlySmile you can smile completely relaxed again and that you do not have to worry about your teeth if you use it properly.
