Alta White is a system which uses apowder. There is a two-step process which is easy and can scrub away stains on your teeth.
1. The swabs are used as applicators for thepowder. They are just like cotton buds except they contain a liquid. Each swab contains a liquid formulation designed to work with the whitening powder to whiten your teeth. The upper and lower set of teeth each require the use of one swab. The kit contains 24 swabs which last 6 days.
2. Theis applied with a swab to whiten your teeth while gently removing stains and polishing your teeth.
To use the Alta White system you snap the swab at the blue-coloured ring at one end. This moistens the cotton at the other end of the swab. You dip this end into the whitening solution. And apply the powder to your teeth. You can also use a wet toothbrush to gently rub the powder in. Lastly you rinse your mouth to get rid of the swab solution and powder.
The pros of using Alta White are:
Alta White can work fast according to some users but this depends on how much your teeth are stained. Some stains, such as those left by smoking and drinking dark coloured liquids such as red wine and coffee take longer to remove.
It is easy and quick to apply. You can cover all your teeth in about a minute. And even less if you don’t need to whiten all your teeth. For example, you may want to just whiten the teeth at the front which are most visible.
Cost effective- much cheaper than some teeth whitening kits and especially laser treatments.
Convenient- there is no need to visit a dentist, you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home.
The cons of using Alta White are:
The powder or applicator may cause irritation or pain to people who are sensitive to its ingredients. The powder contains magnesium peroxide and aluminium trihydroxide. The applicator contains glycerin, methylparaben, propylparaben & FD&C blue. However this isn’t very likely to happen.
Most home whitening systems are not as strong as whitening procedures available at the dentist and it may take slightly longer for you to see major results.
The bottom line is this, if you want whiter teeth, using a system that is easy and quick to use but don’t want to spend too much time and money at the dentists, then this system is for you.
