Difference between Hydrogen Peroxide and Carbamide Peroxide

The basic whitening agent used to whiten teeth is hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is normally more re-active and this thus used over a shorter period of time.

Each of the peroxide are formulated in various concentrations depending on choice of wearing trays during day time or overnight.
