Tooth Whitening Tips

What are the main differences between in-office bleaching procedures and the at-home and over-the-counter tray-based bleaching systems---Strength of bleaching agent. For starters, over-the-counter home use products and dentist-supervised at-home products usually contain a lower strength-bleaching agent (from 10% carbamide peroxide—which is equivalent to about 3 percent hydrogen peroxide -- up to 22% carbamide peroxide). In-office, professionally applied tooth whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide in concentrations ranging from 15 to 43 percent.
