  • How does tooth‐whitening work?

    Discoloration of your teeth can have an intrinsic and/or an extrinsic cause. When the discoloration has an intrinsic cause, it means that there are small cracks in your enamel and dentin. Molecules within these cracks discolor, and that is what you see. Extrinsic means “from the outside” and these are the stains on the surface of your teeth.

    The gel that is being used for Cavex Bite&White contains 16% carbamide peroxide. This proven whitening agent is able to penetrate enamel and break down the discolored molecules through the formation of radicals (small energy balls).

    For the stains on the outside “extrinsic” part of your teeth, sometimes a whitening toothpaste would suffice. Using a direct whitening gel however would handle both intrinsic and extrinsic stains, being more thorough and thus more effective.

  • Is tooth‐whitening bad for my tooth?

    Whitening should be done only under a dentist’s supervision. Tooth‐whitening under controlled dental office conditions is safe and effective. Clinical studies support the safety and effectiveness of home‐use bleaching gels when used appropriately. Tooth sensitivity and irritation to soft tissues can occur during bleaching treatment, but these effects only last for a short time. Cavex Bite&White has been developed and produced according strict European Cosmetic legislation and has undergone thorough testing and evaluation.

  • Where can I buy the product?

    In short, at the dentist. Cavex Bite&White should only be sold by a dentist. Before any whitening procedure, a consultation with a qualified dentist is recommended to ensure no underlying oral or health issues.  According to the new European Cosmetic Directive 76/768/EEC, tooth whitening or bleaching products containing between 0.1 % and 6 % hydrogen peroxide (16% carbamide peroxide) can only be sold by dentists.

    Higher concentrations are not allowed to be sold within Europe.

    The purpose of the law is twofold. On one hand, it is designed to reduce the risk of damage to tooth and gums that could result from the use of a tooth whitening product releasing more than 6% hydrogen peroxide. The law also intends to ensure that all tooth whitening procedures, performed with a significant amount of hydrogen peroxide released, are overseen by someone with the training and knowledge required to make sure the treatment is carried out safely and effectively.

    Cavex Bite&White is developed in full compliance with this new European legislation, and Cavex fully supports the enforcement of this law.

  • When should I put the tray(s) in my mouth?

    With Cavex Bite&White we recommend you to whiten your teeth one‐and‐a‐half hour before sleeping Brush your teeth, put the bleach trays in, leave them in for 1 hour, rinse your mouth, wait 20 minutes, gently brush with fluoride tooth paste, sleep well.

    While sleeping there is sufficient time for re‐mineralization after bleaching. It takes some time for the teeth to regain their initial strength.

    Right after bleaching, your teeth are more sensitive to discoloration by foods or drinks. The structure of the teeth is “open”, so eating or drinking products (red wine, coffee, tea, soda, smoking…) that could stain are advised against. Anything that can stain a white t‐shirt can stain your teeth. While sleeping you don’t eat or drink, so there is no risk of staining.

  • For how long should I keep the tray in my mouth?

    We advise you to keep the tray in your mouth for one hour.

    The “active ingredient”, in the case of Bite&White carbamide peroxide, needs about one hour to take full effect. See the following picture:

  • How many times should I repeat the procedure?

    In the starter kit you will find 2 syringes with gel. Both syringes should have enough material for 5 days, so you are looking at a 10 days period of whitening (upper and lower jaw), which gives a total of using the gel 10 times. If by this time you have reached your goal, great. If not, discuss with your dentist possible prolongation of the treatment.

  • Does tooth whitening cause sensitivity to my teeth or gums?

    The well fitted tray, combined with the thixotropic whitening gel should ensure that the gel will not be in contact with the area’s which are sensitive for irritation like your gums. Cavex Bite&White contains potassium nitrate in the gel. This is a desensitizer, therefore minimizing sensitivity.

    Slight sensitivity is possible and differs from person to person. In this case you might want to try a desensitizing toothpaste.

  • How much whiter will my teeth become?

    We honestly cannot promise you any exact indication except.. your teeth will be whiter! The amount of shades lighter differs too much from person to person. It all depends on the nature and current state of your teeth, the type of measurements and the motivation(discipline) of the user.

    When you are not satisfied with the results after the 10 days of use, consult your dentist if it is possible for you to receive an extra syringe of whitening gel.

  • For how long can you store the gel/product?

    Like all products, Cavex Bite&White also has its expiration date. Cavex Bite&White can be kept for at least 3 years, but only when stored in the refrigerator.

  • Tooth‐whitening at the dentist or at home, what is the difference?

    There are two ways to effectively whiten your teeth. One is the “fast” chair‐side treatment at a dentist, the other way is at home.

    Chair‐side is mostly done with a “high peroxide gel and a light* in the dentist office. After the session the patient’s teeth will have undergone some degree of whitening.

    The process of a take home system is slightly different. There are two ways. You go to a dentist to have your mouth checked. After this you will have to take an impression, which will be used for making a custom-made tray. You will receive this tray together with the Cavex Bite&White peroxide gel. You will be asked to put a single drop of gel in each element of the tray yourself each day you use it.

  • How should I store Cavex Bite&White?

    You should always store the whitening gel in the refrigerator. This is because high temperatures cause activation of the peroxides in the gel, resulting in a less effective low concentrated gel.

  • I have got restorations/crowns/facings on my tooth. Can I whiten my teeth?

    You can still whiten your teeth while having restorations on your tooth, however, these restorations won’t be affected by the whitening gel. A solution to this is to replace your restorations after you have reached your desired color. Always make these decisions together with your dentist!

  • Is tooth‐whitening safe?

    Whitening should be done only under a dentist’s supervision. Tooth‐whitening under controlled dental office conditions is safe and effective. One main reason why many tooth whitening gels are dangerous for your teeth is the pH‐value. Many whitening materials have a low pH, and go with the saying “no pain, no gain”. Teeth generally become more sensitive than before using these materials and enamel weakens. Cavex Bite&White is pH‐neutral, and therefore safe to use.

    Clinical studies support the safety and effectiveness of home‐use bleaching gels when pH‐neutral and used appropriately. Tooth sensitivity and irritation to soft tissues can occur during bleaching treatment, but these effects only last for a short period of time.

  • Does Cavex Bite&White contain fluoride?

    Yes, the gel used for the whitening treatment contains fluoride.  Fluoride is a proven agent for early re‐mineralization and restoration of the micro‐hardness.

  • Are whitening procedures with strong light at a dentist more effective than at home without the light?

    The claim of a light is the accelerated effect of the peroxide. However, literature does not prove the effectiveness of light accelerated bleaching. High intensity of light could cause few degrees of temperature increase which result in faster decomposition of the peroxide. Numerous studies indicate that the faster the bleaching process the higher the reversal rate. Also, the heat from the light on your teeth for a long period of time is potentially dangerous to the pulp of the teeth.

    Cavex only believes in controlled and gradual whitening procedures with moderate peroxide amounts.

    These tend to have a low reversal rate, with significant less sensitivity and are gentle for the mouth and body, eliminating any risk.
