Latest Advancements in Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure that can help people achieve a brighter, more youthful smile. Recently, there have been a number of advances in teeth whitening technology that has made it easier and more effective than ever before. At Skin & Sculpt Med Spa we strive to provide the best in-office teeth whitening treatments available. Some may think you have to go to a dentist’s office for these services, but they can be done at a medical spa!

The demand for whiter teeth has become even high in the United States. According to a report by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, teeth whitening is the most requested procedure, with over 90% of respondents indicating that they believe an attractive smile is an important social asset.

Here is a comprehensive overview of the latest advancements in teeth whitening:


PAP+ is a formula for whitening created by Hismile that includes active ingredients phthalimidoperoxycaproic acid (PAP), hydroxyapatite (nano), and potassium citrate. This formula is a teeth whitening treatment that lessens the pain from typical teeth bleaching acts. Since it contains the active ingredient of PAP, this way of teeth whitening accelerates results without ruining the tooth’s protein structure or natural mineral. It is not an irritant to the tooth barrier at all, meaning there is no requirement for a gingival barrier in order to protect the soft tissues.

The PAP+ method is a unique treatment. It does not use any peroxide which is typically used for teeth whitening procedures and is the traditional ingredient. Peroxide is known to leave the teeth feeling weak, and demineralize them. This usually leaves the teeth feeling exposed and very sensitive. This new PAP method of whitening teeth will not only leave your smile healthier and brighter but a guarantee that you will have no pain or sensitivity.

LED teeth whitening:

LED teeth whitening is another popular method that uses a special light to activate a bleaching gel applied to the teeth. Unlike laser teeth whitening, LED teeth whitening uses a light-emitting diode (LED) instead of a laser to activate the bleaching gel. LED teeth whitening is generally less expensive than laser teeth whitening and is considered to be a safer and more gentle method. The LED light is believed to help speed up the whitening process by activating the hydrogen peroxide in the gel, which helps to break down and remove stains from the teeth.

Overall, LED teeth whitening can be effective at whitening and brightening teeth. However, the effectiveness of the treatment can vary depending on the specific product and the severity of the staining. Some people may see significant results after just one treatment, while others may require multiple treatments to achieve their desired level of whiteness. It is important to discuss this with a dental professional before doing this especially if you have sensitive teeth or gums.

Robotics of Dental Implant Technologies 

Robotics has been around for all different types of surgeries and procedures to enhance physicians’ knowledge and judgments to make quick decisions. While it is unlikely that robotics fully replaces any human, it is a huge help in the dental world. One of the main benefits of using robotics in dental implant surgery is the ability to achieve a high level of precision and accuracy. The robotic system can make very small, precise movements, which can help to minimize the risk of complications and ensure that the implants are placed in the optimal position for long-term success.

Additionally, robotic implant surgery may be less invasive than traditional surgery, as the robot can make small incisions and perform the surgery with minimal disruption to the surrounding tissue. This can potentially lead to faster recovery times and less discomfort for the patient. The use of robotics in dental implant surgery is an exciting area of innovation that has the potential to improve patient outcomes and make the implant process more efficient and effective.

At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits 

While there are many new advancements in teeth whitening, some may prefer to continue doing it at home. At-home teeth whitening kits are a convenient and cost-effective option for people who want to whiten their teeth. These kits typically include a bleaching gel and a mouth tray that is used to apply the gel to the teeth. The tray is usually worn for a few hours each day for a week or more, depending on the kit. Be sure to read the instructions and discuss with a medical professional which kit is best for you. Take-home teeth whitening kits are generally less expensive than in-office teeth whitening, but they may not be as effective and may take longer to produce results.

Natural Ways to Whiten Your Teeth 

With all of the new advancements being available to the patient, they may still prefer the natural way of doing things. According to Medical News Today, many natural remedies can help remove staining and yellow discoloration while still protecting the tooth enamel. Watching the specific foods and drinks you intake such as coffee can help reduce the stains on your teeth. Try brushing with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda twice a week for a minute to two minutes to help whiten the teeth naturally. Going the natural route may not have as fast of results but is a great way to start. If you are looking to have a teeth whitening procedure done, the natural way could be great to maintain the results after the fact.

Overall, there are a number of options available for people who want to whiten their teeth. It’s important to follow proper oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing regularly, to help maintain the whiteness of your teeth as well as watch the food and beverages you are consuming. If you are looking to have your teeth whitened, it is important to remember you do not have to go to a dentist’s office to have it done. A medical spa is a great option to get that smile brighter and whiter.
