What Is Carbamide Peroxide?

Important Ingredients to Whitening

One of the most important and most common ingredients in dental whitening gels is carbamide peroxide. This is commonly used in dental products as a bleaching agent, which is safe to use at home. Research shows that carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide give amazing results when it’s used to whiten teeth and have minimal side effects. These whitening gels are basically hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, that eventually breaks down into hydrogen peroxide. These peroxides freely pass through the enamel, dentin and permeate to all parts of the tooth. These peroxides break down into oxygen radicals, which migrate between the enamel prisms, breaking down any colored molecules that result in tooth discoloration.

What Makes Carbamide Peroxides Best for Whitening Results?

Bleaching products containing peroxides remove all deep stains within the tooth and any surface stains that might stick to your enamel. This produces a combined internal and external whitening effect on your teeth. The fact is that, all carbamide peroxide bleaching gels typically contain between 10% and 44%. This is roughly an equivalent of 3% to 16% hydrogen peroxide concentration. The carbamide peroxide is designed to release over a slower period while worn in the teeth whitening trays. This eliminates any risk of burning and provides optimum whitening results.


At-home tray-based teeth whitening methodology using a 10% carbamide peroxide tooth whitener was first introduced to the dental community in a paper published in 1989. The majority of these at home tray-based teeth whiteners are applied to the teeth by filling up teeth trays with a whitening gel. The teeth trays are then fitted over the teeth and applied for a specified amount of time while the carbamide peroxide-based gel works.

Many clinical studies show that various 10% carbamide peroxide products revealed good tooth whitening results. These whitening results claim to last for years when using carbamide peroxide. However, the whitening effect can relapse in color if you eat many stain causing foods or smoke tobacco. The key to using carbamide peroxide gel for teeth whitening is consecutive applications of the whitening gel with no more than 24 hours between treatments.

Over the past few years, there has been an increasing number of over-the-counter bleaching products including gels, rinses, gums, dentifrices, whitening strips or paint-on films. These products are freely available over the internet, pharmacies, and supermarkets. These over the counter products have been considered alternative methods for at-home bleaching but the VAKKER BANANA Teeth Whitening Kit is one of the most effective and advanced teeth whitening treatments you can find outside of a dentist’s office that will provide you visible results.

Before you do any bleaching, whether it is with teeth whitening kits you purchased online or DIY treatments that you saw a video. You should have your teeth checked by your dentist for any teeth problems, such as cavities or cracks, which could cause the pulp to become irritated during whitening. Also, you must always follow the directions that come with teeth whitening products, so you do not cause any severe issues with your teeth.
