Title
(EN) Confection for teeth whitening and oral hygiene
Abstract
(EN)

Confections for teeth whitening and oral hygiene that comprise a first component including a first bulking agent, an organic acid, and a peroxide, and a second component including a white pigment dissolved in an alkaline solution and combined with a second bulking agent. The first component forms hydrogen peroxide, a bleaching agent, as the confection dissolves in saliva. The hydrogen peroxide cleans teeth and removes stains. The second component acts as a whitening agent to cover any stains that were not removed by the hydrogen peroxide. In one embodiment of the invention, supplements are added to the confection that function as substitutes for stain inducing activities, such as drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes, thereby preventing further staining of the teeth.
