How does Teeth Whitening Work?
Tooth “whitening” is defined as any process that will make teeth appear whiter. There are two ways this is commonly done: bleaching and non-bleaching whitening products. Often the terms “bleaching” and “whitening” are used interchangeably, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states the term “bleaching” can only be used when a product contains bleach. A product is considered simply “whitening” when it removes food or debris from the teeth without bleach. Shop our whitening kit here
What’s in Bleaching Products?
The active ingredient in tooth whiteners available from dentists or drugstores is peroxide (hydrogen or carbamide). Hydrogen peroxide is the actual bleaching agent, while carbamide peroxide breaks down into hydrogen peroxide. The bleaching products you can get from a dentist are much stronger than those purchased over-the-counter.
Whitening At Home
Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits have become popular since they are inexpensive and easy to use. They contain lower amounts of peroxide than the whitening products used by dentists, but some people can have good results though it will take more time. OTC whitening kits and products include whitening trays, strips, rinses, and toothpaste. Prices range from $25 to $100. But then again the best things always come to those who wait.
