What is Smirk® PAP Pro?
Our PAP Pro formula is named after Phthalimidoperoxycaproic acid (PAP), our superstar ingredient. Our formulation process has evolved over the last few years to maximise the benefits of PAP.
In addition, Hydroxyapatite and Sodium Citrate have been added as additional ingredients that help promote dental health.
According to clinical studies, PAP produces whitening effects immediately as well as within 24 hours of treatment.
Bleaching agents like peroxide have an aggressive whitening mechanism called free-radical oxidisation, which has some detrimental side effects.
Among these side effects are sensitivity, irritated gums, and the loss of minerals in the tooth. Dentists limit these reactions with in-chair treatments, but at-home treatments are riskier.
We use Phthalimidoperoxycaproicacid (PAP) as our primary whitening ingredient. The PAP method is a safer alternative to peroxide because there are no free radicals released. As a result, no damage is done to the gums or enamel.
