LED Teeth Whitening: How does it work and is it effective?

Professional teeth whitening can be expensive. Here’s why you should consider an at-home LED teeth whitening kit.

Have you ever had your teeth professionally whitened? It usually involves whitening gel, a flashy LED light and, of course, a heap of money.

But what if I told you that there was an easier way to whiten your teeth just minutes before you go out? For us less prepared people, who champion less effort with great results (yes, I’m looking at you with the dry shampoo), Spotlight Oral Care has released a new product that whitens teeth in just 30 minutes.

Made by dentists, the Professional LED Teeth Whitening System is a godsend for lazy beauty lovers, bringing professional teeth whitening to your home at an affordable price. So, how does it work?

The system comes with three essential components: a dual action LED light, PAP Pro Whitening Strips and a PAP Pro Teeth Whitening Pen, all of which work together to provide a clinically proven solution to a brighter, whiter smile.


What is PAP?

PAP stands for phthalimidoperoxycaproic acid, an active ingredient that helps whiten teeth. It’s an absolute game-changer, especially when combined with an LED light. PAP is a key ingredient alongside hydrogen peroxide in the kit’s whitening strips and whitening pen, and both ingredients are activated by the LED light. When the dual active whitening ingredients are combined, they break down stains and lift the overall shade of the tooth without sensitivity. 

How does the LED light work?

Once the strips are applied, the LED light is placed in your mouth. Once you press the button, the light uses nanotechnology to emit blue wavelengths for ten minutes. This helps accelerate and activate the ingredients of PAP and hydrogen peroxide, causing an oxidising action that helps whiten teeth.

Once the blue light switches off automatically, press the button twice for phase two – the red light. This is what really makes this LED teeth whitening system stand out from the rest. The red light soothes and rejuvenates the gums and soft tissues surrounding the teeth. This helps reduce tooth sensitivity and improves the gums’ appearance over just five minutes.


No stain left unlifted

Next, leave the PAP whitening strips on for a further 15 minutes, then brush your teeth to remove any residue. Finally, apply the PAP Pro Whitening Pen gel to your teeth to whiten any hard-to-reach areas and to maintain whitening results between treatments. This ensures you have gotten every nook and cranny of your smile.

That is it! You will be left with a professional level of whitened teeth in 30 minutes, a great way to boost confidence before hitting the town this weekend. Going forward, it is recommended to repeat the process every ten days to maintain results.
