     Teeth whitening – Introduction
The process of teeth whitening is now generally accepted as an
easy way to improve one’s smile without the need to resort to
expensive cosmetic dental procedures such as placing porcelain
veneers or caps on teeth. The process of teeth whitening was first
popularised in America by celebrities who needed to look their
best, and hence gave birth to the phrase “the Hollywood smile”.

Whitening teeth is carried out
by the use a bleaching
chemical such as hydrogen
peroxide     that     liberates
oxygen that permeates the
enamel layer of teeth and
reacts     with       coloured
compounds to neutralise
them. Formulations have
been       developed         to
incorporate the bleaching
agent into a thixotropic gel
that can remain in contact with the surfaces of the teeth long
enough to get a noticeable effect. The degree of whitening
achieved depends on the chemical compounds employed and the
time they are in contact with tooth enamel.

There are two main types of teeth whitening kits available today,
namely peroxide teeth whitening kits and non-peroxide teeth
whitening kits. In order to better understand why you should use
non-peroxide teeth whitening kits, you need to take a look at some
of the serious side effects of using the peroxide products.

                               ***




                                                                     4
      How white can I get my teeth?
It is something of a myth that natural teeth are absolutely dead
white. The teeth of a young person soon after they have appeared
in the mouth can be close to perfect white, and they also have a
degree of translucency which adds to their visual appeal, but they
still have a degree of colouration in them.

The pigmentation of teeth varies from person to person much like
that of the eyes or hair, but as a general rule our teeth are fairly
white when we are young but tend to get progressively darker with
age. This is due in part to more tooth substance being gradually
laid down inside the teeth which gradually diminishes the size of
the cavity in the middle of the teeth where the nerves and blood
vessels are, (the pulp), and gradually increases the density of tooth
substance making the teeth look darker.




The second reason teeth darken with age is due to absorption of
stains over time due to smoking, or from food and drinks like tea
and coffee.

Dentists use a shade guide to determine the right colours to make
artificial crowns to match in with natural teeth, and such a shade
guide is very useful when you set out to whiten your teeth as you
can see the amount of improvement. Teeth generally have slight
shades of yellow, pink, grey, or brown in them, and the actual hue
doesn’t change as we get older, but rather the shade of the hue
darkens. The whitest teeth are probably a shade B1 on the usual
shade guide, and this is very white with just a faint hint of yellow.



                                                                        5
Another common shade found in natural teeth is a light greyish
one and this would be C2 or C3 on a shade guide.

When you whiten your teeth they often go much whiter to begin
with, maybe up to 5 shades, but then gradual settle down and end
up about 2-3 shades whiter. So an older person with grey teeth
due to smoking may start at C4 and expect to end up as C1-C2.
This may not sound that dramatic, but indeed it is an extremely
noticeable difference, and anyone with teeth the shade of C1
would be very happy.

Similarly someone starting out at B4 with quite yellow teeth may
expect to reach B1-B2 after a period of teeth whitening treatment.
The “rebound” effect is inevitable and is probably partly due to
some dehydration that occurs during the teeth bleaching process.

This is reckoned not to be harmful but it does mean that you might
want to take that into account. Severe dehydration is most likely to
occur with “power” or “laser” whitening carried out in the dental
chair, since a much more concentrated bleaching agent is used
together with a powerful light.

This dehydration accounts for the postoperative hypersensitivity of
teeth often experienced for a while after power whitening. This
effect is much less noticeable with home whitening treatments that
are gentler in their action, especially with non-peroxide systems
like Zero Peroxide.

The aim then, of whitening your teeth, is to make them lighter in
colour, brighter, and more attractive looking. They should still look
natural though, and not dead white like granny’s false teeth,
otherwise they will look artificial too. If you choose a reliable
whitening treatment that aims for up to 5 shades whiter and
includes a shade guide with the kit or treatment, then you should
be very satisfied with the final result.

                                                                        #
    What’s the difference between
peroxide and non-peroxide whitening?
With so many different types of home whitening kits available on
the market today, knowing which one to choose can be quite a
challenging task. Till some time back, there were only peroxide
teeth whitening kits available to people who wanted to lighten the
colour of their teeth. However, now users also have the option of
using non-peroxide teeth whitening kits to make their smile even
brighter. Looking at a comparison between peroxide and non-
peroxide teeth whitening kits means that you can make an
informed choice about which one to use.

The active ingredient in all peroxide teeth whitening kits is a
substance known as peroxide. It can be present in the teeth
whitening kits in the form of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide
peroxide. The type of ingredient that is used, and the strength that
it is used in, varies from product to product.

Most teeth whitening treatments until recently have been carried
out up to now using a carbamide peroxide gel of varying strength.
Research and trials established that a minimum of 6%
concentration of carbamide peroxide is required to whiten teeth
significantly, and that an optimum concentration is 15-20%.

Unfortunately, at this sort of concentration there is a risk of
chemical burn or soreness of the gums from overspill, sore throat if
gel is inadvertently swallowed, and hypersensitivity of the teeth,
especially in those with receded gums or slightly worn enamel.

Concentrations of up to 44% have been used by dentists under
carefully controlled conditions, protecting the gums by means of a
rubbery coating, and often using a special light to enhance the
treatment. Such high concentrations have been shown to cause
dehydration of the teeth, sometimes irritating the pulp (“nerve”) of




                                                                       7
the teeth, with frequent post-operative pain or at least increased
teeth sensitivity.

Although the carbamide peroxide formulation works well there
have been increasing concerns about the side effects previously
mentioned, especially with the increased use of unregulated kits
for home use. The EU has sought to address this situation and to
ban the use of over 6% carbamide peroxide gels for home use.
Higher concentrated gels will have to be used under the
supervision of a dentist in the future.

This situation has led manufacturers to develop new types of home
whitening kits with non-peroxide formulations in order to comply
with the new regulations and provide a safer way that everyone
can use without worry. These newer versions of home whitening
kits typically use either sodium bicarbonate or sodium perborate as
the main bleaching agent, and are virtually as effective as the
peroxide types but without the potential downside – danger of
sore throat, chemical burning of the gums, or increased sensitivity
of the teeth.

Anyone who already has sensitive teeth should definitely not use a
peroxide whitening product as it can make the teeth unbearably
sensitive. Imagine not being able to have a cold drink or ice cream,
or a hot cup of tea for three weeks!

Whatever whitening system is used, it is important, in order to get
the best results, to thoroughly clean all the teeth surfaces of
external stains first. Also, results will tend to vary depending on
factors such as the age of the person, their diet, and whether or
not they smoke.

An older person’s teeth are naturally denser due to increased
amounts of dentine building up inside, as well as discolouration
accumulated over a long time, and are bound to be more resistant
to whitening than a young person’s.




                                                                       8
Any sensible person can use a home kit containing peroxide safely,
but there is certainly no need to since a good non-peroxide kit will
do the job just as well using entirely natural and safe ingredients
such as sodium bicarbonate.

Sodium bicarbonate has long been known for its cleaning
properties and in new whitening products like Zero Peroxide is
combined with other natural ingredients such as chamomile and
vitamin D to promote healthy gums as well. The era of peroxide
gels is past and we now look forward to even safer ways to whiten
our teeth at low cost in the comfort of our own homes with the
latest breed of non-peroxide kits.

                               ***




                                                                       9
    Benefits of sodium bicarbonate
           in whitening teeth
Sodium bicarbonate is also commonly known as baking soda and
has been used for teeth whitening for many years. This ingredient,
which is commonly found in most homes, has many different
benefits such as the ability to neutralise bad breath, get rid of
tough stains from fabric and other household items, and is also
very useful when baking cakes!

In addition to all these uses, sodium bicarbonate also has some
great benefits with regards to whitening teeth. Some of these
benefits are:

Ability to remove stains from teeth: Sodium bicarbonate is a great
agent for removal of some of the toughest stains on teeth. A lot of
people have stained teeth due to the consumption of coffee, wine,
tea, lots of chocolate, smoking and other food products. Over time,
these kinds of stains can discolour teeth to quite an extent and
cause embarrassment. While it is possible to get such stains
removed with the help of professional dentists offering teeth
whitening treatments, they do cost a lot of money. However,
sodium bicarbonate is a very reasonably priced option for
removing stains from teeth.

Ability to remove plaque: Sodium bicarbonate also has the ability
to reduce the build up of plaque on your teeth. In some cases if
the plaque is not too much, it can be removed entirely. Thus, as the
formation of plaque is often responsible for discolouration of
teeth, using sodium bicarbonate can help to whiten your teeth.

However, since sodium bicarbonate can be quite abrasive, it is not
recommended that you use this ingredient more than once a week
in its raw form. Frequent use can wear off your tooth enamel and
cause damage to your teeth. But in spite of this, you can still make
use of sodium bicarbonate bases kits for teeth whitening. You can



                                                                       10
simply opt for non-peroxide teeth whitening kits that can easily be
used at home to brighten up your teeth. Most non-peroxide kits
use sodium bicarbonate as their active ingredient. And the
ingredient is mixed with other ingredients so that you can use it for
many days without worrying about any unwanted damage to your
teeth.

If you want to take advantage of the great benefits of sodium
bicarbonate for teeth whitening, choosing a non-peroxide teeth
whitening kit can prove the perfect choice - you can enjoy both
affordability and watch your smile get transformed!

                                                                        11
   Why do dentists charge so much?
With the appearance of so many home teeth whitening kits on the
market many people are questioning why you need go to the
dentist and why a dentist charges so much. It is true that you can
get very good results these days with a reputable home kit, but if
you see a dentist it will cost you much more for a number of
reasons:

  • You get individual attention, and the dentist can ensure that
    your teeth are suitable for whitening treatment in the first
    place. If you suffer from gum recession, for example, you
    might not be aware that you are liable to experience some
    sensitivity of the teeth following whitening treatment,
    especially if using a carbamide peroxide type of whitening
    treatment.

  • You may have fillings or other restorations in your front teeth
    that you’re not aware of and these will not whiten like natural
    tooth substance. Your dentist can spot these and show you
    how to overcome this problem by whitening your teeth and
    then redoing the restorations to match.

  • Your dentist can monitor your progress and make sure your
    teeth whitening is carried out in a safe way, and be ready to
    advise in case of any problems.

  • Your dentist can either do whitening of your teeth in the
    chair using a concentrated gel plus light activation, or can
    have made special custom mouth trays that you can use with
    a slightly less concentrated gel at home. Either way you may
    achieve a faster result, although the use of peroxide gels is
    not without potential problems such as teeth sensitivity as
    previously mentioned.




                                                                      12
   • Your dentist is a professional like a doctor or lawyer and is
     entitled to charge fees that reflect the years of training that
     led to qualification.

   • Your dentist is also a businessman offering a service and has
     overheads to pay before being able to make any profit. Rents
     and rates are high and the dentist gets no help with premises
     or staff from government sources, and therefore has to
     charge a fee that allows him or her to make a profit.

These factors explain why going to a dentist to whiten your teeth
will cost you more than doing it yourself, and with the appearance
of safe home whitening kits now, like Zero Peroxide, there really is
no reason why you shouldn’t do it yourself and make a big saving.

                                ***




                                                                       13
        The benefits of take-home
           teeth whitening kits
With the types of foods and
the kind of lives we lead
today, many of us suffer from
some discolouration of the
teeth, with some having teeth
that are more discoloured
than others. It is only natural
that over the course of time
our teeth will lose the
whiteness that they have when we are young, as they can become
stained by everything from the foods that we eat and the things
that we drink to lifestyle choices such as smoking and,
of course, our own personal dental hygiene.

There was a time when those who wanted to try and restore some
of the former whiteness to their teeth had to consider costly and
time consuming dental cosmetic surgery, which many people could
not afford. However, these days there are a number of home teeth
whitening kits available, which can be used from the comfort of
your own home.

The benefits of take-home teeth whitening kits are many, which is
why these have become so popular amongst people that want to
improve the appearance of their teeth and get a white, bright
smile. Some of the benefits of take-home teeth whitening kits
include:

   It is cheaper to opt for take home teeth whitening kits than
    to go for cosmetic treatments with a dentist.
   It is more convenient to use these kits, as you can undertake
    the whitening process yourself from the convenience and
    comfort of your own home.




                                                                    14
   You can enjoy a choice of home teeth whitening kits these
    days, with something to suit most pockets.
   You can carry out the tooth whitening process at a time and
    place that suits you.

These are just of the benefits of take-home teeth whitening kits
and with the products that are available becoming increasingly
effective and affordable, more and more people are now able to
get a dazzling smile and whiter teeth without having to spend a
fortune or keep going to the dentists time after time.

Of course, in order to enjoy the benefits of take-home teeth
whitening kits you need to ensure that you choose a kit that offers
efficient results and is within your budget. It is a good idea to
consider looking at reviews of various teeth whitening kits before
you make your purchase, as this will enable you to see which ones
are likely to be the most effective and make your purchase
accordingly.

                               ***




                                                                      15
      Is home teeth whitening safe?
With the availability of so many home teeth whitening kits today,
the leading question in the minds of consumers is that whether or
not these kits are absolutely safe to use. The makers of such
products obviously claim that their products are highly effective
and extremely safe for you. However, if the active ingredients in
these teeth whitening kits are of a very high strength, then they
could cause a lot of damage to your teeth as well as your overall
health.

But since these products are in fact very effective in whitening
teeth and cost very little compared to professional treatments, it is
quite tempting to use them. In order to judge whether home teeth
whitening kits are safe or not, here are some questions to ask
yourself before buying any home teeth whitening kit.

1) Has the product been approved by the EU or the FDA?
It goes without saying that if a product has not been approved, it is
not safe for use.

2) What is the active ingredient used in the kit?
Recent clinical trials have shown that peroxide can be extremely
harmful for health. Even if it is present in mild strength in the home
teeth whitening kit, it can still cause burns, irritation, and
sometimes even cancer. On the other hand, non-peroxide teeth
whitening kits that use sodium bicarbonate have been proven to
be extremely safe.

3) What is the strength of the gel that is used in the teeth
whitening kits?
While most products use gel strength between 11% and 16%,
there are some products that use higher gel strengths. However,
the EU has recently declared that all peroxide products that use gel
strength of more than 0.1% will be banned. This, in effect, means
most of the peroxide kits likely to be banned. And if the
manufacturers reduce their gel strength to acceptable levels, the


                                                                         16
effectiveness of their products will reduce greatly. However, no
such problems are associated with non-peroxide teeth whitening
kits, as sodium bicarbonate does not have any adverse side effects
on health.

4) Is the teeth whitening kit manufactured using the latest
technologies in teeth whitening?
Peroxide kits have been around for years, whereas non-peroxide
kits are the latest available products in the market. It is believed
that soon all home teeth whitening kits will be of the non-peroxide
variety as these are very effective, while being completely safe to
use.

In the past, most teeth whitening treatment was performed by a
qualified dentist, but gradually over the last few years, kits have
appeared on the market enabling people to carry out bleaching of
their teeth themselves, using strips of impregnated material
applied to the teeth, or, more commonly, trays of gel placed over
the teeth.

The tray and gel kits used a similar carbamide peroxide gel
formulation to that used by the professionals, but at somewhat
lower strength. These gels typically contain 15-22% concentration
of carbamide peroxide whereas a dentist may use up to 45% to
achieve quicker results, using a carefully controlled technique to
protect the patient from swallowing gel or from damage to the
gums.

The European Union has stepped in to ban certain types of home
whitening kits because of concerns about possible adverse side
effects, maintaining that kits with high concentrations of peroxide
be used only under the close supervision of a dentist. This is
because people using peroxide kits at home run the risk of
chemical burns to their mouth from overspill of gel from mouth
trays and hypersensitivity of their teeth following treatment.

This has forced manufacturers to bring out teeth whitening kits
with different formulations that comply with current or imminent


                                                                       17
regulations. The new types of kit use sodium bicarbonate, or
sometimes sodium perborate as their main active ingredient to
achieve excellent whitening of teeth without any risk of problems
or side effects.


The main points to note for safe use of any home whitening kit are
as follows:

   • Make sure you read and understand all the instructions.
   • Don’t carry on using a whitening system for more than four
     weeks without consulting a dentist. It is best to give your
     teeth a rest after four weeks of intensive treatment but this is
     usually all you need to achieve an excellent whitening effect.
     If you should encounter any increased sensitivity it is wise to
     stop the treatment for two or three days at a time to let the
     teeth settle, and then resume.
   • Keep to the recommended amount of whitening gel. Putting
     too much into the mouth-trays will not speed up the process,
     but it will make overspill more likely. This is not harmful with
     non-peroxide kits but you will be wasting gel.
   • Avoid home teeth whitening kits if you are under 16,
     pregnant, or have white spots on your teeth as can be
     caused by some medications in early life. If you do have
     white spots then teeth whitening treatment may make these
     more, rather than less, obvious.
To get the best result you should use one of the newer, reliable
home whitening kits now on the market, e.g. Zero Peroxide.

        How to whiten stained teeth
Although most of us would love to have the white, bright teeth
that so many superstars seem to have in the magazines and on TV,
most of us tend to find that as we get older our teeth get
increasingly discoloured as a result of our lifestyles and the food or
drink that we consume. In fact, even superstars often have
discoloured teeth and their sparkling smiles in magazine are often
the result of airbrushing.

However, these days there are steps that can be taken to whiten
your teeth and brighten your smile ? without going to the huge
expense that many celebrities probably go to in order to get their
teeth whiter. If you are keen to know how to whiten stained teeth
there are a number of options available, some of which are more
effective than others. When you are considering how to whiten
stained teeth you also need to take cost into consideration, as
some measures for teeth whitening will be far more expensive than
others.

Some of the option available to those keen to find out how to
whiten stained teeth include:

    Have cosmetic surgery through a dental professional. Whilst
     this can be an effective way to whiten stained teeth it can
     take quite a few visits to get the desired results and more
     importantly can prove very costly.

    Use teeth whitening toothpastes. Whilst there are a number
     of teeth whitening toothpastes around that claim to be able
     to restore the whiteness to your teeth, many of these can
     prove pretty ineffective on serious stains so you could end
     up with poor results.

    Try teeth home whitening kits. These are relatively
     inexpensive and there are many that can be very effective,
     although it is important to bear in mind that some are more


                                                                         19
      effective than others. You can use these easily and quickly
      from the comfort of your own home, which means that you
      get to benefit from convenience as well as ease and
      affordability.

Of course, the type of treatment that will be best suited to you will
depend on the level of staining on your teeth, so each case must
be looked at individually. However, it is always a good idea to
consider the more cost effective methods that you can try yourself
at home before opting for costly cosmetic surgery, as this could
save you a lot of money in the long run.

The natural choice for teeth whitening
For many people, the natural choice when it comes to teeth
whitening is to find a home whitening kit that is not only
affordable and easy to use but is also safe and is made with
effective yet gentle ingredients that will not cause any harm or
result in serious illness. Many prefer to avoid the peroxide based
tooth whitening kits that are on the market because of the link
between peroxide and dangers such as gum burns or mouth
cancers. Instead, these people decide to look at the best non-
peroxide teeth whitening kits in order to get rid of staining and
discolouration of the teeth.

Using home whitening kits has become increasingly popular
amongst those who are looking to get whiter, brighter teeth but
without the inconvenience or cost of having to go to a dentist for
cosmetic surgical procedures. However, nobody wants to risk their
health even if it means getting whiter teeth, which is why more and
more people are on the lookout for the best non-peroxide teeth
whitening kits rather than looking at peroxide based teeth
whitening kits.

If you want the best non-peroxide teeth whitening kits you need to
look for products that use a combination of gentle yet effective
ingredients, which are blended to not only provide dramatic results
in terms of whitening stained and discoloured teeth, but are also
designed to enhance the health of your teeth and gums whilst still
coming in at an affordable price.

You will find that Zero Peroxide offers all of the above benefit and
more besides, so you could find that this is one of the best non-
peroxide teeth whitening kits to opt for. The natural ingredients in
this treatment are designed to boost the health of your teeth and
gums whilst speeding up and enhancing the teeth whitening
results. The whitening process itself comes from the ingredients
sodium bicarbonate and polysorbate, which are known for their
teeth whitening properties.

You also need to look at the little extras that come with the kit that
you buy if you want to get value for money without compromising
on quality and results. With the Zero Peroxide kit you get a highly
effective LED light that emits safe UV rays along with a comfortable
and flexible mouth tray, which improves comfort, safety and even
boosts results, so you can enjoy whiter and brighter teeth even
faster.

    How can I keep my teeth white?
White teeth are vital for an attractive smile, and nothing is more of
an asset in our lives these days than having an attractive smile. We
are born with nice white teeth, but we only get the one permanent
set that has to last a lifetime. Inevitably our teeth will tend to
darken somewhat with age, as they become less translucent, and
that is a natural process we can do little about.

There are though, things that can be done to keep our teeth as
white as possible, and these revolve around two main principles:
keeping our teeth clean; and avoiding food, drink, and habits that
will cause discolouration.

Keeping our teeth clean is essential because the layer of sticky
plaque that accumulates on our teeth daily attracts and holds
stains right next to the tooth surfaces. The longer the plaque is
there the greater the chance that stains will gradually permeate the
enamel of the tooth surface and become fixed and permanent. The
tooth enamel, although hard, is not impermeable. It is made up of
a crystalline structure that will allow penetration and absorption of
small molecules.

The layer of plaque on our teeth harbours not only stains, but
bacteria too, and some of these can cause decay, which in the front
teeth leads to disfiguring areas of white or brown enamel. If the
decay process advances sufficiently to breach the enamel, then an
unsightly dark patch results that only your dentist can fix. It is
essential not to let decay get a hold in the first place by avoiding
too much in the way of sweet foods and drinks.

The best way to clean your teeth is in a systematic and thorough
method, using both a toothbrush and dental floss. If you are using
an ordinary toothbrush you should first try to dislodge plaque at
the gum edge with short, vibratory strokes, followed by longer
strokes vertically towards the biting edge of the teeth.




                                                                        23
It is best to keep horizontal brush-strokes to the absolute
minimum because, over time they cause a surprising amount of
tooth abrasion leading to hypersensitivity. If you are using a power
brush you simply need to hold it against the teeth for long enough
to enable it to brush away plaque, say 10 seconds at each location.
Whichever type of brush you’re using you should start at one
corner of the mouth and gradually work your way round, giving
attention to each surface of each tooth in turn.

It is essential to look in a mirror whilst brushing to ensure you are
covering all the teeth. Having brushed, it is time to floss using a
small length held taut between the fingers and sliding it upwards
from the gum edge to the biting surfaces of the teeth You are
trying here, to scrape the plaque off the tooth surfaces and away,
so you do not want to make see-sawing movements, but rather a
clean, sweeping movement vertically upwards from the gum edge.

This daily routine needs to be done at least once in a day,
preferably twice, and may take more time than you realise when
you start out to first clean this thoroughly. It becomes easier and
quicker with practice though, and is certainly worth it!

The second part of keeping your teeth white is avoiding habits
such as smoking because smoke darkens the teeth gradually, (as
well as your skin). Foods that are themselves brightly coloured like
turmeric can stain teeth quite markedly, so you need to be careful
of curries and the like.

Drinks such as tea, coffee, and red wine are also notorious for
staining teeth, and are the main culprits for most of us. If you drink
your coffee black, then you are especially susceptible to darkened
teeth. The good news is that these stains do not become
permanent straightaway so, if you are cleaning your teeth really
well each day you can remove the stained film before too much of
the discolouring compounds have actually penetrated the tooth
enamel.




                                                                         24
Cleaning your teeth regularly, carefully, and efficiently is the key to
keeping your teeth naturally white. If you want to help them out,
you can of course use a home whitening kit on an occasional basis,
but use a reputable one such as the Zero Peroxide system.

Hopefully this ebook will have answered all your questions about
whitening your teeth, and demonstrated that it can be done by
virtually anyone, quite easily, and at very little cost!

                           yet safe way to whiten your teeth at
                           home but have been worried about the
                           irritation and sensitivity it may cause
                           then we may have found a solution for
                           you.

Home Teeth Whitening Without Side Effects

You see, this kit uses the power of sodium bicarbonate, which, in
the right dosage, has been shown in clinical trials to produce a
whitening effect on the teeth. Better still, the Zero Peroxide
formula is further enhanced with natural ingredients such as
pomegranate and chamomile to help speed up results and provide
an all-round improvement in your oral health.

This makes Zero Peroxide one of the first teeth whitening kits to go
beyond whitening teeth and provide benefits such as stronger
tooth enamel and healthier gums which we think can only be a
good thing.

Why is Zero Peroxide Your Best Choice For Fast
Teeth Whitening?

There are many reasons why we like the Zero Peroxide kits but
here are the main ones:

Superior, Zero Irritation Formula

We have already mentioned how the gel is
based on sodium bicarbonate which has been
proven to work in clinical trials. We have also
mentioned that the formula has been
enhanced with natural ingredients to help
provide better results and an all-round
improvement in your oral health.

However, the Zero Peroxide gel also includes sodium fluoride
which helps to strengthen tooth enamel. If you have stronger tooth
enamel then stains will find it harder to stick to and penetrate in to
your teeth. The result is that your teeth will stay whiter for
longer.

               powerful ingredients in Zero Peroxide




                                                                         27
Better Mouth Trays

Most home teeth whitening kits supply the
boil and bite mouth trays which need placing
in boiling water before being put in to your
mouth to create a mold. This was important
for peroxide kits as it helped to avoid gel
getting on your gums but with a zero irritation
formula it is not a concern.

Zero Peroxide avoids the hassle and dangers of such a procedure
by providing extremely soft comfort mouth trays made from high
quality silicone. These are not only more comfortable and less of a
hassle than the standard boil and bite trays but they also work
better with the LED light as the are clear and let more light through
so you get even faster results.

Teeth Whitening Pen Included as Standard

Although we have seen other kits that
offer teeth whitening pens, most offer it
at an additional cost. However, with
Zero Peroxide the teeth whitening pen
is included as standard even in the most basic kit.

We think this is a very good thing because the pens are so handy,
allowing you to touch up your white teeth when you are out
and about. This is especially useful if you eat or drink food that
can stain such as red wine or curry.

Easy 3-Step 20 Minute Whitening Process

One of the best things about Zero Peroxide is that it is probably
the easiest to use kit that we have ever seen. Much of this is down
to the mouth trays that can be placed straight in to your mouth
without any fuss but it is also because of the speed at which the
Zero Peroxide formula works that makes it such a fast and
efficient process.



                                                                        28
Simply place the gel in the mouth tray and put it in your mouth,
then wear for 20 minutes with the LED light on and then take out
and rinse and you are done. This is a massive plus point as even at
the dentist treatments can take up to and beyond an hour yet Zero
Peroxide is a much cheaper and more convenient option.

Of course these are just some of the many benefits that Zero
Peroxide offers, there are many more such as the handy travel bag
that comes with the full kit and the hygienic mouth tray holders for
safe and secure storage between whitening sessions.

Does Zero Peroxide Work?

From the evidence we have seen,
particularly the clinical evidence behind
the whitening power of sodium
bicarbonate, we have no reason to doubt
the effectiveness of Zero Peroxide.

The kit is probably the best kit around
and is clearly very well thought out with every component of the
kit included to help enhance your whitening experience.

Certainly looking at the testimonials on the product website from
satisfied customers it would seem that Zero Peroxide offers a real,



                                                                       29
affordable alternative to peroxide based treatments. The
evidence is that Zero Peroxide not only whitens your teeth quickly,
it also improves other areas of your oral health and therefore is a
fantastic option if you want to start looking younger and feeling
more confident with a whiter, healthier smile.

There is also a full 30 day money-back guarantee which is a very
re-assuring because it means you will either get whiter teeth or
you get your money back so either way you cannot lose. It also
shows what confidence the manufacturers have in the product – if
it didn’t work then they wouldn’t be able to offer such a guarantee.

How Much Does Zero Peroxide Cost?

As with anything you tend to get what you pay for and, although
there are slightly cheaper kits on the market, none of them seem
to offer the same level of whitening and speed of results as Zero
Peroxide. Furthermore, most do not contain the added extras such
as the teeth whitening pen, travel bag, and mouth tray holder and
therefore Zero Peroxide gives you excellent value for money.

It should be noted that the full kit will last for around 1 month
under normal usage (the basic kit lasts around 2 weeks). This is
plenty of time to get the results you need as most people will
notice results within the first few applications with full
whitening achieved after around 3 weeks or so.

The cost for the full kit is usually £99.99 – however, at the time of
writing there is a sale on with 40% savings so you can pick it up for
just £59.99. This provides a massive overall saving of £89 on the
RRP but we are not sure how long this offer will run so we
apologise if by the time you are reading this the price has already
gone back up.

Zero Peroxide Review – Summary

Overall it is clear to see that Zero Peroxide
is a very special product.

It is proven to be both fast and effective
when it comes to whitening your teeth,
yet it also goes a step further and
provides other oral health benefits such as
strengthening tooth enamel to keep your
teeth whiter for longer too.

There are some clear advantages of Zero Peroxide over other teeth
whitening kits, not least the comfortable mouth trays that avoid
the need for boiling water (therefore a better option if you have
sensitive teeth) and the fact that the touch-up pen is included
without additional charge.

There is a 30 day money-back guarantee which is the longest we
have seen although judging by the success stories on the products
website you will not be needing it – still, it’s always nice to know
it’s there.

We know it is not the cheapest but you do get more for your
money and ultimately the difference in price is more than justified
by the superior results and speed of whitening the kit provides. It
has also been recommended by dentists so you know it’s safe –
even if you have sensitive teeth.

For these reasons Zero Peroxide is our number one
recommendation and if you are looking to whiten your teeth
quickly and safely you will not find a better option anywhere else.

DOCUMENT INFO
Description: The process of teeth whitening is now generally accepted as an easy way to improve one’s smile without the need to resort to expensive cosmetic dental procedures such as placing porcelain veneers or caps on teeth. The process of teeth whitening was first popularised in America by celebrities who needed to look their best, and hence gave birth to the phrase “the Hollywood smile”. Whitening teeth is carried out by the use a bleaching chemical such as hydrogen peroxide that liberates oxygen that permeates the enamel layer of teeth and reacts with coloured compounds to neutralise them. Formulations have been developed to incorporate the bleaching agent into a thixotropic gel that can remain in contact with the surfaces of the teeth long enough to get a noticeable effect. The degree of whitening achieved depends on the chemical compounds employed and the time they are in contact with tooth enamel. This short ebook aims to answer all the commonly asked questions about whitening your teeth, including the following: › How white can I get my teeth? › What’s the difference between peroxide and non-peroxide? › Why do dentists charge so much? › Is home teeth whitening safe? › How can I keep my teeth white?
