History of Teeth Whitening

History of Teeth Whitening

The bleaching procedure was started in the 1880s when they used to use very high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide and a bleaching lamp, which was detrimental, actually, to the teeth themselves.


Then, in 1968, an American orthodontist named Bill Klausmeyer started to see inflammation on the gums following the orthodontic treatments. So what he did is that he used the peroxyl, which is actually the mouthwash that we use today in dentistry. He instructed the patients to go ahead and use that peroxyl in the retainer box that he had given them and used it to kill almost all of the ground negative bacteria.


After a while, he saw that not only did the ground negative bacteria subside, but the inflammation was gone and the teeth were whiter.
