Professional Teeth Whitening product suppliers mostly use Hydrogen Peroxideor Carbamide Peroxide as the active ingredients in their tooth whitener gels. The chemicalHydrogen Peroxide (HO) is a bleaching agent which converts into water (HO) and releases anOxygen molecule (O) in the process of the chemical reaction. Both Water and Oxygen arecommon, safe components of our everyday lives. The Oxygen particles penetrate the rough surface of your tooth (even though they appear smooth,they are microscopically rough, rod like crystal structures) and dislodge staining particles. I like toexplain this by imagining the TV commercials which show how a clothes washing powder withoxygen lifts stains from your clothing. The "bleach" Hydrogen Peroxide is not the same as household bleach containing ammonia, orother low-end, acid based tooth whitening products, and can be swallowed, within limits. In factour own bodies produce Hydrogen Peroxide naturally! Acidic products can remove enamel from your teeth. Look for teeth whitening products usingHydrogen Peroxide which is pH balanced, meaning they have no, or low acidity levels. Puttingacidity into perspective, you should be aware that everyday Orange Juice is shown in lab studiesto soften (and potentially erode) tooth enamel by many times more than a professional hydrogenperoxide based tooth whitening gel could, if used correctly. Myth 2 - Teeth Whitening is not Safe Not true! Cosmetic Teeth Bleaching with Hydrogen Peroxide has been in use for 100 years. Mostrecognized dental bodies worldwide endorse tooth bleaching as a generally safe practice, whensimple safety steps are followed. Any professional supplier of teeth whitening products will includeadequate instructions for the safe use of their product. Safety vs Risk with tooth whitening is generally centred on 2 main issues: Exposure of the gel tothe gums and soft tissue of the mouth or lips, and tooth sensitivity. Both can be minimized byusing professional products and minimizing the amount of time the bleaching gel is exposed to thegums or teeth. As with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks. Thankfully with professional teethwhitening any side effects experienced are temporary and are not permanent. As with mostcosmetic procedures, you may have to endure some discomfort to look better. Sometimes I callthis "Vain Pain".
 Myth 3 - All whitening Gel is the same Not true! Of the two major professional gel options, there is Carbamide Peroxide and HydrogenPeroxide. Both produce the same active ingredient Hydrogen Peroxide, but Carbamide Peroxideacts SLOWER on the teeth and is recommended for use only with an Accelerator Light (I will talkabout that later) or for overnight use. Carbamide Peroxide concentrations contains roughly 1/3 ofthe active ingredient, Hydrogen Peroxide. As an example, 35% Carbamide Peroxide is roughlyequal to 12% Hydrogen Peroxide. Because Hydrogen Peroxide is an unstable chemical which reacts immediately, it is moreexpensive to produce. Many vendors offer only Carbamide Peroxide based products as a result.Stabilized Hydrogen Peroxide, while the most difficult and expensive to produce, reactsimmediately on contact with the teeth and is best suited for short duration tooth whiteningtreatments without an accelerator light. Myth 4 - Teeth Whitening Accelerator Lights don't work Not generally true! Except in some cases. There are businesses who sell only take home teethwhitening kits, and some Dentists, who say that the LED Lights and other accelerator lights are just a gimmick and don't work. There have been many studies conducted which show that the use of a professional acceleratorlight does indeed accelerate the oxidization (the release of oxygen and chemical bleachingreaction) of tooth whitener gel. This is especially true with Carbamide Peroxide based whiteninggels which react much slower chemically. Ask yourself, how many Dentists and Cosmetic Dentistry businesses offer an "in-office","chairside", "instant whitening" or "Power Whitening" treatment? Many of them! Now why wouldthey offer this treatment if the accelerator lights did not work? From my own professionalexperience, there is no doubt that the professional quality Blue LED Accelerator lights enable afaster tooth whitening result when using Carbamide Peroxide gel. In our own studies andobservations having worked with thousands of clients and compared the results with the same gel,over the same time period, with and without the LED Accelerator Lamp, we are sure there is anoticeable improvement with the light under these conditions. But, not all Accelerator Lights are the same. Some Dentists use older technology lamps such asPlasma, UV and other technologies. These technologies function at a light spectrum which isknown to cause heating or burning of the skin tissue and heating of the tooth surface to releasethe oxygen in the gel, unfortunately that can also mean UV damage to your mouth, gums and lips.There are also mini handheld LED Lights you often see in TV Commercials - these are only toysand do not have enough power to have any effect. Another case of where an accelerator light doesn't work well is if the provider uses a mouth tray tohold the gel against the teeth, and this tray is coloured, is a "Silicone Impression" tray, or is a Pre-Filled Foam tray. These types of mouthguard trays do not allow the light frequency to pass throughthem and there are no accelerated bleaching effects as a result. 
Modern, professional teeth whitening accelerator lamps all use LED light in the blue lightspectrum, at a specific frequency which excites the oxygen release from the chemical, andaccelerates the tooth whitening process. They are often known as "Cool LED" or "cold" lightaccelerators because they do not heat the teeth or surrounding tissue. As a result, they areperfectly safe, and the technology is FDA Apparoved. Myth 5 - You need to go to a Dentist to get professional whitening results Not true! Today, you can buy in Australia, professional strength tooth whitening products whichyou can use at home or as a service with a professional accelerator light and assistance - and not just from the Dentist. Dentists are exclusively allowed to use the VERY STRONG bleaching gels, over 16% HydrogenPeroxide, and up to 35% Hydrogen Peroxide. At these strengths of whitening gel, the real risks aretooth sensitivity and gum trauma. Dentists therefore use a special gum barrier which they apply toyour gums prior to applying the strong gels. A Dentist will usually get a better whitening result inthe same amount of time as a non-dental treatment, but there are costs to consider, bothfinancially and in increased tooth sensitivity when using the stronger Dentist-only treatments. For many years the Dentist's had the cosmetic teeth whitening market monopolized becauseprofessional teeth whitening technology was too expensive for anyone else. Today, the price andavailability of professional tooth whitening products means you have many more choices andoptions. Myth 6 - Teeth Bleaching Gels from anywhere other than USA, Australia or UK are unsafe Not true! First of all, in this modern world, you may not even know it but products appearing to bemanufactured by a good American or Australian brand are most likely actually manufactured inChina. This is true with all types of products and technology worldwide, due to simple economics. There are many brands of teeth whitening products available in the market. You don't need to beconcerned where they were manufactured, because it makes NO DIFFERENCE. The activechemical, Hydrogen Peroxide is the same the world over. Because Hydrogen Peroxide is alsoused as a disinfectant, bacteria can't live in this chemical and it will always be safe (ie; germ andbacteria free) to put Hydrogen Peroxide based gel into your mouth regardless of where it camefrom or how it was manufactured. If the Hydrogen Peroxide gel is past its use by date or chemically expired, you will know rightaway, because the gel turns a milky white colour which shows that it is already oxidized and willno longer be effective at whitening your teeth, it won't cause any harm. Myth 7 - You need customized Mouthguard trays to get best whitening results Not true! While Dentists offer custom mouth trays which costs a lot of money, there are also manyhome whitening kits providing the boil-n-bite thermoshrinking mouthguards which will work equallyas well. The totally custom trays may be a little more comfortable to wear, but they need to be,because in general, a Dentist's at-home teeth whitening kits require you to have the tray in yourmouth for long periods of time, over weeks of use. There are non-dentist products which only
