What is PAP?

PAP, stands for Phthalimido-Peroxy-Caproic acid

A new, non-invasive teeth whitening technology, which causes minimal damage to enamel health. Most common whitening methods are invasive and contain hydrogen-peroxide, which leaves teeth, as quoted in a scientific study, ‘irreversibly damaged by cutting enamel.’

Oxidation is a necessary process for whitening

It neutralises organic double bonds that cause discolouration in teeth. PAP contains a high potential of oxidation which dissolves stains that have built up on enamel surface, behind the enamel and passes through to the dentine layer, neutralising even deeper stains. Blue light technology, (used in the Smile Up Teeth Whitening Kit), accelerates the PAP to help penetrate through the three layers of teeth, to access deeply entrenched discolouration. This cleans and restores teeth on three levels, unlike any peroxide-based products.

Does it really work?

YES. It is proven by multiple scientific dental studies, including reports by the Journal of Applied Oral Science and Elsevier, that high concentration PAP-based whitening agents are as effective as hydrogen peroxide-based products. The studies also show that PAP is less harmful to enamel and oral health, than peroxide products. The JAOS study showed 59% of all examined teeth saw an improved colour after one use, in just 24 hours. Whereas hydrogen peroxide-based treatments rely on multiple use for similar results. PAP whitens teeth just as well as peroxide, without the risk to enamel and dentine health.
