Rapid White’s non-peroxide whitening system contains Sodium Chlorite (the accelerator). When it’s activated by the whitening gel or the dissolving strips, Chlorine Dioxide is released, which oxidizes (whitens) the organic stains on the tooth surface. Use our Rapid White Product Selector to find the perfect whitening solution for you.

European regulations require that high-level peroxide treatments (above 0.1% peroxide) can only be sold or used by dental professionals. They are usually a relatively expensive option. When you buy peroxide-based products on the internet, you cannot be sure of the quality and safety of what you are buying.
