Claims:

1. A teeth cleaning device comprising:

a gel cartridge storing a cleaning and whitening gel;

a plurality of light emitting diodes configured to emit a cold light; a mouth guard having a generally arcuate shape, the mouth guard comprising a first arcuate recess, a second arcuate recess opposite the first arcuate recess, a cavity, a first surface, and a plurality of first openings, the first arcuate recess located on a top side of the mouth guard to receive a first row of teeth, the second arcuate recess located on the bottom side of the mouth guard to receive a second row of teeth, the cavity located between the first recess and the second recess, the first surface in communication with the cold light of the light emitting diodes;

a vibration and dispensing assembly having a generally arcuate shape and being disposed in the cavity of the mouth guard between the first arcuate recess and the second arcuate recess, the assembly comprising a plurality of vibration motors and a plurality of second openings, the motors being configured to generate vibrations, the second openings being in communication with the first openings; and

a central controller configured to control:

dispensing the gel from the gel cartridge through the second openings and the first openings into a user's oral cavity;

emitting the cold light from the light emitting diodes through the mouth guard into the user's oral cavity to activate a whitening compound in the gel; and

vibrating the plurality vibration motors configured to drive the gel against surfaces of the first row of teeth and the second row of teeth.

2. The teeth cleaning device of claim 1, further comprising an outer shell having one or more removable shell sections, the outer shell configured to house the gel cartridge, the light emitting diodes, the vibration and dispensing assembly, and the central controller.

3. The teeth cleaning device of claim 1, wherein the outer shell comprises a main shell section having a cavity, the main shell section having a generally semi-circular opening terminating with a planar bottom surface on a first side, and a generally oval opening at a top of a second side, wherein the generally oval opening is in communication with the semi-circular opening.

4. The teeth cleaning device of claim 1, further comprising:

air tubes;

gel tubes; and

an air pump configured to pressurize the gel cartridge using air tubes, and dispense the gel from the gel cartridge using gel tubes.

5. The teeth cleaning device of claim 4, wherein the air pump is disposed in a main shell section and the gel tubes engage gel guides of the vibration and dispensing assembly through the oval opening.

6. The teeth cleaning device of claim 5, wherein the main shell section includes an air vent connected by a first air tube to an input of the air pump in order to receive ambient air.

7. The teeth cleaning device of claim 6, wherein a second air tube is connected from an output of the air pump to an input in the gel cartridge.

8. The teeth cleaning device of claim 7, wherein a gel tube is connected to an output of the cartridge.

9. The teeth cleaning device of claim 3, wherein the light emitting diodes are disposed in the main shell section and emit the cold light through the oval opening into the first surface of the mouth guard.

10. The teeth cleaning device of claim 1, further comprising a cold light controller configured to communicate with the central controller to control the emitting of the cold light from the cold light emitting diodes.

11. The teeth cleaning device of claim 10, wherein the cold light emitting diodes are disposed on the cold light controller.

12. The teeth cleaning device of claim 1, further comprising:

a rechargeable battery; and

a charging controller configured to provide power from the rechargeable battery to the central controller.

13. The teeth cleaning device of claim 1, further comprising:

an induction coil configured to generate power when in proximity to a second induction coil; and

a charging controller configured to charge the rechargeable battery.

14. The teeth cleaning device of claim 1, further comprising a plurality of color light emitting diodes, wherein the central controller is further configured to control the color generating light emitting diodes to emit a color light indicating at least one operational status.

15. The teeth cleaning device of claim 1, further comprising a light strip disposed flush between several shell sections of an outer shell, wherein the light strip comprises a plurality of color light emitting diodes disposed on or embedded in the light strip.

16. The teeth cleaning device of claim 15, wherein the light strip is transparent.

17. The teeth cleaning device of claim 1, wherein the mouth guard is transparent.

18. The teeth cleaning device of claim 1, wherein the vibration and dispensing assembly further comprises a sensor configured to detect pressure from a user's bite through the mouth guard.

19. The teeth cleaning device of claim 18, wherein the central controller is configured to control dispensing the gel, emitting the cold light, and vibrating the motors based on the pressure detected by the pressure sensor.

20. The teeth cleaning device of claim 18, wherein the central controller is configured to control dispensing the gel for a first predetermined period of time, then followed by emitting the cold light and vibrating the motors for a second predetermined period of time.

21. The teeth cleaning device of claim 20, wherein the first predetermined period of time is three seconds, and the second predetermined period of time is ten seconds.

22. The teeth cleaning device of claim 18, wherein the central controller adjusts a pattern or a frequency of vibrating the motors based on an amount of the pressure detected by the pressure sensor.
