What is the best teeth whitener?

Teeth whitening is accomplished by using either a peroxide or carbamide peroxide gel, both break down using oxidation as the method of whitening teeth. The higher the concentration of peroxide, the faster whitening but unfortunately the higher the concentration is associated with more pain and sensitivity to the teeth and gums. The highest concentration peroxide gels are found at your dentist office and must used with a rubber dam to protect soft tissue from the gel as it will “burn” soft tissue. Lower, yet effective, concentrations of peroxide can be found in take home whitening kits. Our take home whitening kit contains 35% carbamide peroxide along with potassium nitrate to help minimize teeth sensitivity. For individuals who have experienced teeth and mouth sensitivity when whitening, we recommend our clinically proven Sensitive Toothpaste and Antioxidant Gel as a pre-treatment.
