What is the difference between carbamide and hydrogen peroxides?
Carbamide peroxide is approximately 1/3 of the strength of hydrogen peroxide. The Professional Take-Home Kits are a carbamide formulation. The Professional Chairside kits are hydrogen peroxide.
How does peroxide whiten teeth?
When peroxide breaks down (either on its own, or accelerated with a light) it forms oxygen bubbles that get down into the microscopic pores of the tooth to clean out stains.
Will tetracycline stains whiten with tray kits or in-office whitening?
Intrinsic stains (stains inside the tooth, often caused by medications) are more difficult to whiten than extrinsic stains (surface stains, generally caused by smoking, coffee, red wine, etc.). However, good whitening results can be achieved with either system. Lengthier whitening sessions, higher concentrations of peroxide, or multiple treatments will help to achieve better results. Each patient is different and results will vary. If whitening does not produce the desired results, LUMINEERS® porcelain veneers may be a better option.
How white will the teeth get?
Each patient is different. There is not a way to determine before the procedure what type of shade change will result. Each patient should be informed of this before treatment begins.
What percentages are available with the Professional Whitening Systems?
The Professional Take-Home kits are available in 16%, 22% and 32% Carbamide peroxide formulations. The Professional Chairside Kits are a 35% Hydrogen peroxide formulation.
Is it necessary to use a light with the Professional Chairside System?
The Professional Chairside Kits may be used with or without a light. However, we recommend the Sapphire Plasma Arc Light. Achieve over a seven-shade change in 30 minutes or up to a 12-shade change in an hour!
Is sensitivity an issue with the Professional Whitening Kits?
The Professional Whitening System is specially formulated to eliminate sensitivity and a recent study by the University of Buffalo reported no patient sensitivity.
