What are oxidation of stain particles?


Preston Dental Saskatoon Dental Clinic Services

Most whitening products contain a concentrated blend of carbamide or hydrogen peroxide. When oxidation occurs, these compounds cause stain particles across the tooth to dissolve and break apart, lifting them away from the enamel and leaving a whiter color behind. Such peroxide blends are also effective in helping healthy tooth structure appear brighter.
