About Whitening

Teeth whitening works by bleaching your teeth to get rid of stains or discoloration. Two types of bleaches are used in tooth whitening gels: Hydrogen Peroxide and Carbamide Peroxide. Each whiten teeth and have same side effects, notably tooth sensitivity. Gels with hydrogen peroxide only need to be worn for 30-60 minutes per day where as carbamide peroxide gels stay active for up to 6 hours. In recent studies, both bleaching agents achieve similar results with no difference in sensitivity or rebounding.
