Teeth whitening lights, also known as LED lights, teeth whitening lamps, or even teeth whitening lasers, work by emitting a special wavelength of blue light that activates the whitening gel used during the teeth whitening process.
The whitening gel usually contains hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which are active ingredients that break down with temperature increase and remove stains on the teeth's surface. When the LED light is shone onto the gel, it activates the peroxide, allowing it to penetrate the tooth enamel and break down the stains more effectively.
Teeth whitening lights also help to speed up the chemical reaction between the peroxide and the stains, making the whitening process more efficient in a short amount of time.
The blue light used in teeth whitening does not harm the teeth, gums, or any other surrounding tissues, and the entire process is generally considered safe and effective when performed by a trained dental professional.

It is important to note that professional teeth whitening lights should only be used as part of a professional teeth whitening treatment and not as a standalone solution.
