Whiter Teeth, Together.
Got Questions? We've Got The Answers.
Is it safe?
Any product that is brushed onto the teeth will have a certain level of abrasiveness, which allows it to polish teeth and remove surface stains. Products that are too abrasive, however, can wear away the structure of the teeth and cause irreparable damage.
Relative Dentin Abrasivity (RDA) gives manufacturers the ability to weigh up the level of stain removal and tooth whitening in a product, versus the potential damage to the structure of the teeth.
MySweetSmile's Teeth Whitening Powder has an RDA of 70, classing it as a low abrasive. At-home remedies such as baking soda, and charcoal, can have RDA's as high as 150. This means they're highly abrasive, and very likely to cause irreparable damage to the tooth's enamel. This is why we have chosen to create a product that doesn't solely rely on its abrasiveness to whiten the teeth.
Will it make my teeth sensitive?
With regards to sensitivity, MySweetSmile's Teeth Whitening Powder has been formulated with a unique ingredient called Strontium Chloride Hexahydrate. This ingredient works to safely form a protective barrier over delicate nerve endings in the teeth, which ensures zero pain or sensitivity, before or after treatments.
Are they safe?
Our Teeth Whitening Strips contain Phthalimidoperoxycaproicacid (PAP) as the key whitening ingredient. PAP is a safer alternative to the harmful peroxide.
As a bleaching agent, peroxide has an aggressive whitening mechanism called free radical oxidisation. This causes sensitivity, irritated gums, and loss of important minerals from your teeth.
PAP does not release free radicals as it whitens, which makes it a safe alternative since it has zero impact on the gums or tooth enamel.
How do they whiten?
During treatments, the key whitening ingredient (PAP) enters through the enamel of the teeth and gently breaks down stain molecules into smaller forms.
The smaller the molecule, the lighter in colour it is, resulting in an overall whiter tooth.
Powder: The MySweetSmile Powder should be used 1-2 times a week to remove stubborn stains and prevent the build-up of new stains from daily consumption of tea, coffee, wine, nicotine, etc.
Strips: After the initial 14 day course, we recommend purchasing another set of PAP Strips, and completing treatments as and when you feel your teeth need whitening, such as before a special occasion.
Each box contains 28 Strips for 14 individual treatments, so you'll be stocked up for a while!
Veneers, caps, implants, bonding or bridges aren’t designed to be whitened and require special care from your dentist.
The Powder and PAP Strips work to remove both internal and external stains from natural teeth, this means that they will be helpful at keeping your surrounding teeth the same shade as the ones that have had dental work.
