The Science of White
There are five scientific elements to successful teeth whitening – peroxide, light, pressure, heat, and exposure. Research shows that a combination of these elements will produce much greater results. With the help of White Science innovations, it’s easy to accomplish.
Found in virtually all dental whitening products, peroxide creates the platform for converting hydrogen peroxide to hydroxyl radicals. These hydroxyl radicals penetrate the tooth structure and break down stains into ever smaller particles. However due to its degree of acidity, peroxide can burn the gums and cause tooth sensitivity. So how does Solarius use peroxide more safely? With the combination of light, heat, and pressure, Solarius can use a gentler peroxide gel specially formulated with a neutral pH. The result is whiter teeth without irritation or sensitivity.
Found in virtually all dental whitening products, peroxide creates the platform for converting hydrogen peroxide to hydroxyl radicals. Hydroxyl radicals penetrate the tooth structure and break down stains into ever smaller particles. Solarius Neutral pH peroxide gel provides a safe and comfortable experience without causing tooth sensitivity.
The conversion of hydrogen peroxide to hydroxyl radicals can be accelerated by exposure to certain wavelengths of light. Specifically within the spectrum of 400 to 560 nanometers, the safe visible light increases the release of hydroxyl radicals and accelerates the whitening process.
Light, within the spectrum of 400 to 560 nanometers, accelerates the stain removal process by increasing the conversion of hydrogen peroxide to hydroxyl radicals.
Without pressure peroxide has limited effectiveness. By applying mild pressure from White Science’s patented light guiding tray, neutral pH peroxide gel is squeezed into the tooth structure. And allows hydroxyl radicals to break down the stains and clean your teeth.
Mild pressure delivered through the use of a gel filled tray, forces Solarius’ safe and neutral pH peroxide gel into the structure of the tooth.
The combination of light, pressure, and the body’s natural temperature of 98.6 Fahrenheit, heats the peroxide gel and increases the release of hydroxyl radicals.
Heat generated from the body combined, with 400 to 560 nanometers of light, further activates tooth cleaning hydroxyl radicals.
The longer you expose your teeth to these elements the whiter your teeth will get. But peroxide does wear out. So it is important to balance all these elements with the right exposure. For most people, one teeth whitening session is sufficient for an initial treatment however, 2 sessions back to back can provide incredibly dramatic results.
Exposure to one 30 minute session is sufficient to effectively whiten your teeth 4 to 6 shades.
