The makers of a new teeth whitening product claim that it can also provide dental health benefits to those who use it.
Nutrabrite Dental Rejuvenation System is an at-home treatment that consists of two steps, known as a whitening booster stage and a radiance value booster stage.
Dr Alan Creamer, creator of the system, says that it fortifies teeth with calcium, minerals and vitamins as it whitens.
It uses amorphous calcium phosphate, a compound that has been linked to the promotion of re-mineralization of enamel, according to the Journal of Dental Research.
Dr Creamer explains that in developing his product, he carried out research into the optimum pH level of a teeth whitening agent that would not result in sensitivity or harm enamel.
In addition, the system is different from other teeth whitening formulas in that it works by targeting the entire tooth.
"Because teeth have a translucent quality, the most effective whitening is achieved by whitening the sides and behind surface, not just the front of the teeth," Dr Creamer says.
Research by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that whitening teeth was the number one change that U.S. adults would make to their smile.
