Lumineux Whitening Mouthwash and Strips

Essential Takeaways

  • The study demonstrated that Oral Essentials whitening strips consistently lightens the shade of the teeth by up to 12 shades, and that Oral Essentials whitening mouthwash consistently lightens the shade of the teeth by up to 7 shades.

Study 1: OE strips A total of 5 extracted teeth were used. They were selected from 20 teeth which were all stained as per original protocol. For ease and translatability of comparison, 5 teeth with matching degrees of staining were selected for this study from the 20 stained samples. Tooth colors were measured by 1 experienced, blinded, pre-standardized examiner using standard colorimetry (as described in our previous study) and the Vita 3-D shade guide. Lighting was indirect and standardized and all measurements were repeated 3 times. At baseline, samples 1-3 had a shade of 3M2; samples 4 and 5 had a baseline shade of 2M1. After 10h treatment with OE strips, samples 1-3 lightened to shade 1M1. Samples 4 and 5 also lightened to shade 1M1.

Study 2: OE Mouthwash A total of 5 extracted teeth were used. They were selected from 20 teeth which were all stained as per original protocol. For ease and translatability of comparison, 5 teeth with matching degrees of staining were selected from the 20 stained samples. Tooth colors were measured by 1 experienced, blinded, pre-standardized examiner using standard colorimetry (as described in our previous study) and the Vita 3-D shade guide. Lighting was indirect and standardized and all measurements were repeated 3 times. At baseline, samples 6 and 7 teeth had a baseline shade of 4M1; samples 8-10 had a baseline shade of 3M2. After 48h treatment with OE mouthwash, teeth 6 and 7 lightened to shade 3M1. Samples 8-10 also lightened to shade 3M1.

Conclusion: The results of study 1 demonstrated that the OE whitening strip consistently lightens the shade of the teeth by up to 12 shades. Moreover, the results of study 2 confirmed that OE whitening mouthwash consistently lightens the shade of the teeth by up to 7 shades. Variables may include the color and micro anatomy of the existing teeth, as well as the cause of discoloration, and the application duration of the whitening agent.
