About NiuSmile

Who is NiuSmile?

NiuSmile is a part of a global company that has taken the teeth whitening industry to a whole new level. Our Professional Home Teeth Whitening and Oral Care Products are 100% peroxidefree for a safe and effective method to achieve a whiter, brighter smile and are also animal cruelty-free and vegan.

How do NiuSmile Teeth Whitening products work?

NiuSmile products are peroxidefree, have a neutral pH and do not damage the tooth enamel. The stains on your teeth are simply removed by the treatments; the stains that remain are discoloured, which gives you whiter and brighter teeth.

NiuSmile is one of the most advanced non-peroxide teeth whitening kits on the market. The main active ingredients are activated charcoal, organic coconut oil and sodium bicarbonate.

We also added some powerful ingredients to our formula, such as organic peppermint oil and organic lemon myrtle, which strengthens enamel to help keep your smile whiter for longer, and helps enhance and speed up the results while giving you healthier teeth and gums.

About Teeth Whitening

What causes teeth staining and discolouration? Teeth colour varies from one person to another. We are all born with different variations of teeth colour in the white-to-yellow spectrum. Unfortunately, some people are more prone to teeth staining than others. This is predetermined by genetics. Genetics plays a major role in susceptibility to discolouration of teeth, but over time, your natural tooth colour can become discoloured due to external and internal factors.

Some examples of teeth discolouration include:

External factors

  • Food and beverages high in acid
  • Food and beverages dark in pigment
  • Smoking

Internal factors

  • Aging
  • Illness
  • Side effects from some medications

External factors that cause tooth discolouration stain the enamel, or surface of the tooth, and can typically be removed by teeth whitening. Internal factors that cause tooth discolouration stain the dentine, or layer beneath the enamel, and are difficult to remove by teeth whitening. Those with external staining may see a notable improvement in tooth colour while others with internal staining may not.

It is said that appearance can even affect the number of job offers and promotions you receive as well as how attractive you are to the opposite sex. In particular, white is very important as it can help make you look younger and people tend to associate white teeth with friendliness and trustworthiness. So having white teeth has never been more important, but until recently, the only option to whiten your teeth was to visit a cosmetic dentist. This was not only an inconvenience – it was, and still is, very expensive. Even today you can pay several hundred dollars for a single whitening treatment at a cosmetic surgeon-dentist.

NiuSmile Teeth Whitening and Oral Care Products

Are the products safe?

Yes, NiuSmile products are completely safe to use. It is a non-peroxide formula. However, up until recently, most teeth whitening was performed using peroxide-based formulas.

This meant putting dangerous chemicals on your teeth; remember that peroxide is also the main active ingredient used to bleach and dye your hair. Needless to say, there were many dangers with this method, not least the burning of your gums and increased pain and sensitivity both during and after treatment.

In 2011, these kits were banned from sale in Europe under new regulations unless the treatment was performed by a qualified dentist. It is likely that such kits will also soon be banned in other parts of the world, including Canada and the USA. As NIU products do not contain any peroxide, they will remain 100% safe and legal throughout the world.

Our teeth whitening kits have been developed using a formula that contains no peroxide at all. Instead we use the power of activated charcoal, organic coconut oil and sodium bicarbonate, and enhance their performance naturally with ingredients such as peppermint oil and lemon myrtle. This not only gives you a safe whitening experience but also an extremely effective one too. Our kits do not cause any sensitivity or irritation and have actually been shown to help improve the health of your teeth and gums.

Will NiuSmile products damage my tooth enamel?

No, NiuSmile products will not damage tooth enamel, they do not contain peroxide or other harmful substances such as carbide peroxide or sodium chlorite.

Do NiuSmile teeth whitening products hurt?

No, using NiuSmile products will not hurt because they are peroxide free and do not contain any other harmful substances such as carbide peroxide or sodium chlorite, which can cause damage to tooth enamel.

I have sensitive teeth, will this hurt?

No, using NiuSmile products will not hurt as they are peroxide free and do not contain any other harmful substances such as sodium chlorite; therefore, there is no damage to the tooth enamel. Teeth whitening products containing peroxide are generally not suitable for people with sensitive teeth as they can cause added teeth sensitivity and “Zingers.” Zingers are a dentistry term for sudden sharp tooth pain.

Are there any teeth whitening side effects?

No, there are currently no known side effects to NiuSmile Teeth Whitening Products.

Are NiuSmile products suitable for everyone?

NiuSmile products are suitable for all people 14 years and older with healthy teeth and gums.

NiuSmile Teeth Whitening products should not be used if you have any oral infections, tooth decay or gum disease. You should allow your mouth and gums to heal before any teeth whitening treatment in order to refrain from irritating the wound and cause infection. If your oral infections persist, you should visit a dentist.

Can I use NiuSmile products during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

NiuSmile cannot recommend whether or not to use teeth whitening products during pregnancy and breastfeeding as research on this subject is insufficient. Although it is extremely unlikely that our kits would cause any problems for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers, we do not recommend using them if either of these descriptions apply to you. If you have any doubts, please consult your doctor before using teeth whitening products.

Are NiuSmile products easy to use?

Yes, NiuSmile products are very easy to use!

Is there anything I should be aware of during treatments?

In order to gain the best results possible, avoid dark coloured food and drinks immediately after the teeth whitening treatments and keep them to a minimum in between treatments.

What happens to my teeth during the NiuSmile whitening process?

NiuSmile products have a neutral pH and therefore the tooth enamel isn’t harmfully affected in any clinically measurable way. The tooth stains are simply lifted away by the treatments and any remaining stains are rendered colourless, whitening the teeth.

How should I store my NiuSmile Teeth Whitening products?

For the longest shelf life possible, NiuSmile products should be stored away from sunlight and kept cool. Do not expose these products to direct sunlight or temperatures above 85°F. NiuSmile Whitening Gel can be stored in a fridge for up to 2 years.

Where is it best place to store my NiuSmile whitening syringes?

Any cool, dry place is acceptable. If a tube is open, then it should be stored in the refrigerator. If you are stocking up on tubes, it is a good idea to keep them refrigerated as this will extend their shelf life.

What are the ingredients in NiuSmile Teeth Whitening products?

NiuSmile Whitening Gel: Water, Glycerine, PVP, Xylitol, Carbomer, Lecithin, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) oil, Organic Mentha Piperita (peppermint) oil, Organic Backhousia Citriodora leaf (Lemon Myrtle) oil, Activated Charcoal Powder, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Potassium Sorbate.

Just take a look at the ingredients our unique formula contains and ask yourself – why settle for whiter teeth when you can have whiter AND healthier teeth with NiuSmile?

What are the active ingredients?

The active ingredients are activated charcoal, coconut oil and sodium bicarbonate.

Why did you use these ingredients?

Activated charcoal, coconut oil and sodium bicarbonate are the most effective natural teeth whitening ingredients so we decided to put all three in our formula to get benefits from all their teeth whitening properties.

Why sodium bicarbonate?

Because of its Incredible Whitening Effects!

One of the active ingredients of our lemony fresh gel is sodium bicarbonate (also known as baking soda), a well-known cleaning agent that is already used in many leading brands of toothpaste and mouthwash.

Is sodium bicarbonate safe for whitening teeth?

Yes. Sodium Bicarbonate is safe for whitening teeth.

Why use Activated Charcoal?

We all know that charcoal is very effective in removing impurities from water, but here are the reasons why it is effective in removing yellow stains on teeth:

  • Charcoal, because of its natural adhesive qualities, easily absorbs tannins (responsible for colouring) such as those from tea, wine (especially red wine), coffee and plaque, which are eliminated when you spit.
  • Charcoal is an antibacterial and antifungal. It absorbs the bacteria, toxins and heavy metals in the mouth to give you a brighter and healthier smile.
  • Activated coconut charcoal latches onto toxins in the body and swiftly removes them. Because it is completely expelled by the body with absolutely no side effects, it is often used in cases of food poisoning.
  • Increasingly, it is being used to whiten teeth and absorb toxins in the oral environment that can contribute to gum disease, oral cancer, and systemic diseases like diabetes.

Is Activated Charcoal Safe for Whitening Teeth?

Yes, activated charcoal is safe to use for whitening teeth.

Why use coconut oil?

  • Coconut oil is becoming increasingly popular and is recognized as one of the best natural methods to whiten yellowed teeth. An ancient method used primarily in Ayurvedic medicine, oil pulling works by detoxifying and cleansing the oral cavity, similar to the way soap gets your dirty dishes clean. It literally sucks the bacteria and toxins out of your mouth to create a clean, antiseptic oral environment that contributes to the proper flow of dental liquid that is needed to prevent cavities and disease.
  • With more and more people seeking natural options for a healthier body, oil pulling is one of those solutions that crops up in dental hygiene topics. Natural living enthusiasts have eagerly picked up the habit of oil pulling, with some swishing oil for up to 30 minutes a day in search of the supposed benefits.
  • Oil pulling is an age-old practice rooted in Ayurvedic medicine that uses natural substances to clean and detoxify teeth and gums. It has the added effect of whitening teeth naturally, and evidence even shows that it may be beneficial for gum health and that certain oils may help fight harmful bacteria in the mouth!

Is Coconut Oil safe for whitening teeth?

Yes. Coconut oil is safe for whitening teeth.

Before Whitening

Should I prepare my teeth in any way before whitening them with NiuSmile?

The best way to prepare your teeth prior to teeth whitening is to use NiuSmile finger teeth wipes or brush your teeth without toothpaste.

Can I whiten my teeth if I have fillings, crowns, veneers or tooth jewelry?

Yes, you are still able to use the whitening treatments although fillings, crowns and veneers (anything other than the natural tooth) will not be whitened as NiuSmile products are designed to whiten the enamel. Because our gel contains no dangerous chemicals or other nasties, it should not cause any problems for any dental work you have done in the past, or will have done in the future. This includes fillings, crowns and dentures. However, we would always advise consulting your dentist before commencing any teeth whitening treatment.

Can I whiten my teeth if I have an ulcer or other oral infection, tooth decay or gum disease?

No, you should allow your mouth and gums to heal before any teeth whitening treatment as to not irritate the wound / infection. If your oral infections persist, you should visit the dentist / doctor.

Whitening Results

How white will my teeth become?

Teeth are unique and will be whitened back to the natural white tooth shade of the individual. People that have heavily stained teeth due to the consumption of dark food, drinks and smoking will see quicker and more noticeable results as the stains are darker. You may be surprised how white your teeth become.

We cannot say exactly how much whiter your teeth will become as it depends on many factors, such as how white your teeth are to start off with and how much you stick to the recommended whitening procedure and schedule.

However, on average, most people notice that their teeth become 5-10 shades whiter when our NiuSmile kit is used as directed. This is achieved thanks to our uniquely formulated gel and our extras such as the LED accelerator light and comfort mouth tray. You also get a tooth shade guide included in the complete kit to help you track your progress. These results are specific to our NiuSmile kit; other brands may not offer such impressive results.

How long will the results last?

It is difficult to identify how long results will last as it depends on the condition of the enamel, the type of stains, the person’s diet, and if they smoke.

It is important to remember that teeth will become slightly darker each day after whitening, how dark is dependent on a person’s diet. Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution, and regular treatments are required in order to keep beautiful white teeth.

Similar to how there is no washing powder in the world that will keep clothes permanently white, no teeth whitening product (not even that provided by dentists) will have a permanent effect. This is because we are constantly drinking and eating things that stain and discolour our teeth.

However, we have formulated our gel to ensure your results last for as long as possible.

However, we recommend regular touch-ups.

How soon will I start to see results?

When using NiuSmile, most people notice results after the first 10 minutes of treatment. This is because of how we combine our uniquely formulated gel with an LED accelerator light and specially adapted mouth tray for maximum results in the quickest possible time.

Even those who do not see results so quickly usually notice improvements within the first few treatments. For the full whitening and stain removal effect, we recommend using NiuSmile for a period of up to 2 weeks and maintenance with the gel refills. This will not only give the best results but will also ensure the results last as long as possible too.

How frequently should I whiten my teeth?

NiuSmile recommends that people limit their NiuSmile whitening treatments to no more than 2 weeks. However in our clinical studies, there have been no adverse effects when people whiten their teeth continuously.

Can I use the NiuSmile system with braces?

Yes! You can whiten your teeth with braces.

Is this a substitute for regular dental appointments?

No, home use teeth whitening and oral care products should never be a substitute for having regular checkups at your dentist.
