TEETH WHITENING

Q&A's

WHAT IS TEETH WHITENING?

Teeth whitening, sometimes known as “bleaching”, is a common dental procedure. According to the FDA, “whitening” restores natural tooth color and “bleaching” whitens beyond the natural color. We strongly believe that our L.E.D.-accelerated carbamide peroxide trays are the best teeth whitening method.

 

WHY DO TEETH STAIN?

Baby teeth are usually whiter than the permanent teeth that follow. As people age, their teeth gradually darken. Teeth can stain because of the foods that we eat and the bacteria in our mouths. Some antibiotics can cause teeth to stain. Dark or colored liquids like coffee, tea, and wine can also stain teeth.

 

CARBAMIDE VS HYDROGEN

Hydrogen peroxide is a cleaning agent created by combining hydrogen and oxygen (H2O2). Although often used as an antiseptic and disinfectant, it is also used for teeth whitening. Hydrogen peroxide is extremely effective for whitening teeth. However, hydrogen peroxide is also very powerful. It can create tooth sensitivity and even irritate the mouth and gums. Because of this, only trained dentists should administer higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide.

Carbamide peroxide is a combination of hydrogen peroxide and urea. As a result, it has a weaker concentration of hydrogen peroxide (1/3 of the strength). Although not as effective as high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide, it is still a very effective and fast teeth whitening agent. Because it is not as concentrated, it is safer to handle and can be used by anyone, not just dentists.

Which one do we use? Both actually! We use both higher and lower concentrations of carbamide and hydrogen peroxide throughout our product line.
