Effect of Three Different Whitening Strips on Dental Sensitivity, Oral Tissues, Tooth Color and Luster
In this 14-day randomized, double-blinded, controlled clinical study, no significant difference was found between the whitening effect of a non-peroxide whitening strip vs that of a peroxide-based formulation. Tooth luster increased significantly after the non-peroxide treatments whereas it decreased significantly after treatment with the peroxide strips. The peroxide-based strip caused significantly more dental sensitivity, oral burning, and soreness than the other formulation. Whitening strips with non-peroxide formulations can provide an effective alternative to conventional peroxide-based formulations and may be associated with fewer side effects.
