How does it work? Teeth whitening is accomplished by release of the oxygen ion in close proximity to tooth structure. Overall whitening depends on the number of oxygen ions available and amount of time they are on tooth structure. Oxygen ions enter enamel and dentin and are attracted to the double bonds of stain molecules. The ions attack and destroy the double bonds leaving shorter stain molecules that are more easily soluble and removed from the tooth by oral fluids. The key is the release of adequate numbers of oxygen ions and a carrying gel that pushes the ions into the tooth. Teeth whitening helps remove stains and also discoloration of teeth.
The predictability of tooth whitening comes from a correct diagnosis of staining. Predictability also depends on:
– Patient habits that may contribute to staining
– True expectations
– Patient compliance
