Several years ago, SafeWhite proved it was possible to whiten teeth using proteins naturally occurring in sea life. These proteins allow for teeth to function naturally while greatly improving teeth whiteness without the dryness and sensitivity caused by bleaching teeth. These discoveries are the basis for SafeWhite. After further refining the product, SafeWhite scientists are now able to whiten teeth in a manner that is both safe and effective.
