The main whitening and cleansing ingredient in our exclusive formula is sodium bicarbonate. It goes deep into the pores of the teeth – called the dentin – and oxidises the molecules that make teeth appear yellow, dark and stained.
The Megawhite gum shield is filled with the Megawhite product and inserted into the mouth then the light is directed at the shield. Once the laser light hits the product, the formula becomes active. This releases oxygen that creates a pressure which pushes oxygen into the core of the tooth. The oxygen and cleaning agents, combined with the high intensity laser light, turns the tooth’s inner surface from a brown/yellow colour to a white colour, without changing or damaging the structure of the tooth’s enamel.
The Megawhite product also contains silicone to help the laser light travel around the entire mouth, a catalyst activator called photo initiator is also added to ensure the oxygen is released as quickly as possible.
