Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, best-selling co-author of the book, The Will To Win, with Brian Tracy, and owner of the SmileCreator of Naples, reports on the results of a new study that examined the effects of teeth whitening products using hydrogen peroxide.


Naples, FL, November 27, 2019: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “New Study On The Effects Of Teeth Whitening Products,” in which Dr. Hernandez talks about what researchers looked at and what they found.


Dr. Hernandez writes, “From ground pumice stone to urine to acid, teeth whitening methods have been around for centuries.” He continues adding, “But the latest craze of teeth whitening strips using hydrogen peroxide as a bleaching agent has been around since the late 1980’s. And Americans have been spending billions of dollars on these products.”


According to Dr. Hernandez, “A recent study from Stockton University has looked into the effects of hydrogen peroxide on teeth and what they’ve discovered may not put a stop to teeth whitening, but it could cause some people to hold off.”


Dr. Hernandez briefly explains the structure of teeth. He writes, “A tooth has three layers: the outer enamel, the underlying dentin, and connective tissue that binds the roots to the gum.” He explains, “In the study, the researchers found that the hydrogen peroxide in teeth whitening strips damages the tissue deep in the tooth – even deeper than the enamel – and makes it weaker. In particular, hydrogen peroxide affects the dentin, the layer that makes up most of the tooth and stops hot or cold food from stimulating the nerves and causing sensitivity and pain.”
