What is teeth whitening?
Breaking down our signature Teeth Whitening Kit
Our goal when developing the Teeth Whitening Kit was simple. We wanted to create an at-home teeth whitening treatment that was just as effective as peroxide, without the nasty side effects. In 2014, we launched our our first Teeth Whitening Kit.
The Kit ticked all the boxes. It was safe, easy to use, and completely peroxide-free.
With the help of our community and the Hismile Research Centre, our Teeth Whitening Kit has evolved over the years. Now with PAP+, the Kit is faster and more effective than ever before. We’re proud to say it’s our most advanced formula to date.

Notes from the team
When selecting ingredients to include in PAP+, our priority was to ensure the formulation would be safe, effective, and convenient. In addition to PAP, we selected a synthetic hydroxyapatite and potassium citrate to address pre-existing sensitivity and support tooth remineralisation.
The PAP+ formula is delivered in an individual pod that acts as a complete treatment, equal to using 6 of our previous Gel Syringes. Each pod is designed to be overfilled, so they contain more than enough formula for a single 10-minute treatment.
We have isolated a formulation process that maintains a high pH level for safe and effective whitening. The balance between our 3 active ingredients allows for them all to provide maximum efficacy during the whitening process.
We worked with Intertek to conduct an in vitro study around the effects of PAP and Peroxide based formulas on enamel.
‘Microhardness’ is a term used to describe enamel strength. When microhardness is reduced it means that changes to the enamel have occurred, which can result in further damage to tooth structure.
Intertek’s in vitro study identified that Hismile’s PAP formula increased microhardness (strengthening enamel), where other formulas reduced microhardness (weakening enamel).
