Description

Typical whitening systems are designed to provide what dentists and patients want, however these “wants” typically fly in the face of what is physically and chemically possible. For whitening success, tooth color molecules must be broken down by radicals produced by peroxide, however, there are a myriad of stumbling blocks to achieving this goal.With most current whitening systems, peroxide gels may already be degraded when received because of inadequatehandling and lack of refrigeration by whitening product companies. gels may be chemically altered to lengthen shelf life,leading to acidic pH, higher osmolarity, higher sensitivity and less effectiveness of the products. and they typically haveinadequate continuous activity to accomplish thorough cleansing and whitening of tooth structure.In-office whitening lacks the time necessary to thoroughly degrade color molecules, and antioxidants found in saliva andsulcular fluid rapidly seep under and into whitening trays, destroying peroxide on contact.
