Every now and then an innovation comes along that reminds us beauty does not have to equal pain. This year, that reminder is coming to us from the dentist’s chair where so many of us have experienced pain and long-lasting severe sensitivities as a result of whitening treatments.
Now, Hismile are bringing a much-wanted innovation to the whitening game with a new formulation that whitens and brightens without pain or sensitivity.
In fact, with this formulation, Hismile are taking things one step further with a beauty treatment that can actually protect your teeth from sensitivity long after you leave the dentist’s chair.
And according to FY Smile’s lead dentist in Double Bay, Dr. Fadi Yassmin, “This is truly the future of teeth whitening.”
The hydrogen peroxide paradox
If you’ve ever had your teeth whitened at the dentist, it’s likely that hydrogen peroxide or another peroxide-based technology was the active ingredient in the formulation. While HP will leave your smile looking white, it could be causing significant damage to the health of your teeth and gums. Put simply, as HP bleaches away the stains on your teeth, it causes demineralisation which can cause damage to the protective enamel of the teeth and leave them more porous. This results in sensitivities that may last long after the visible benefits of the treatment have worn off. Perhaps even more alarmingly, excessive HP use can include inflammation of the teeth roots in the gums, which can lead to infection.
A healthier solution for bright, white teeth
So, if not hydrogen peroxide, what? Hismile’s new PAP+ in-office treatment takes their successful at-home teeth whitening range to your dental practice, using their now-famous PAP+ formula which contains phthalimidoperoxycaproic acid (PAP), an innovative active ingredient that bleaches teeth without forming causing sensitivity, gum irritation or demineralisation.
In the PAP+ treatment, this active ingredient is combined with a couple of protective powerhouses to ensure your teeth remain strong and healthy, not just healthy-looking. The first is nano-synthetic hydroxyapatite to gradually replace minerals into the protective layer of the enamel. The next is potassium citrate which serves a dual-action purpose of actively desensitising and enhancing the formula pH level This helps relieve any pre-existing pain while providing more effective whitening results.
Top three benefits of PAP+
If you’re weighing up your whitening options, PAP+ should be top of your consideration set for three key reasons.
- Highly effective whitening results
Dr. Fadi Yassmin from FY Smile, Sydney, conducted the PAP+ In-Office treatment on a group of patients with a variety of starting tooth shades. After the trials, Dr. Yassmin shared that the treatment “provides a very bright natural shade of white with minimal dehydration when compared to other forms of whitening procedures.”
If the voice of an expert isn’t enough, let these impressive before and afters sway you.
- No sensitivity or gum irritation
Throughout the trial, Dr. Yassmin noticed that the results showed no signs of adverse effects being experienced by patients. “The most promising aspect of this method,” he shared, “is the complete lack of dental hypersensitivity or gum irritation during and post-treatment, it offers the opportunity for a faster process and accelerated whitening results with a truly comfortable experience.”
- Fast application and treatment
If sitting in the dentist’s chair just isn’t something you want to commit a chunk of your time to, PAP+ is for you. Dr. Yassmin shared, “Of the treatments completed, it was clear that the majority of whitening results are achieved within the first two 15-minute applications. For patients with more comprehensive staining I completed further treatments up to 4 total 15-minute applications which achieved a final desirable results.”
The final word
A beautiful smile does not mean pain. With Hismile’s PAP+ in-office treatment you’ll spend less time in the dentist’s chair, avoid the sensitivity and gum irritation we’ve come to expect from whitening treatments, and get highly effective whitening results. It’s the win-win-win we’ve been waiting for.
