What is Enamel Polishing Paste?
With our patent pending Oscillating Cup Head, izzo users can use the Enamel Polishing Paste at home to effectively remove surface stains from their teeth. The Polishing Paste should only be used with the Polishing Cup, never with Brush Head.
Is this the same paste and cup head that dental professionals use?

The izzo system is designed to help teeth look whiter, how does it do this? And how is it different from other whitening products?
Although the terms “tooth bleaching” and “tooth whitening” are often used interchangeably, they are technically not synonymous. Bleaching is a process involving an oxidative chemical (e.g., hydrogen peroxide). In contrast, tooth whitening is the process that results in the teeth becoming whiter in perceived color, regardless of the means used. Therefore, tooth whitening can include bleaching with peroxides and mechanical approaches to remove surface stains – such as when brushing and polishing with the izzo system. izzo whitens using tiny, naturally occurring compounds that physically lift surface stains and plaque from teeth’s surface. izzo doesn’t artificially whiten your teeth; it removes the stuff that causes discoloration, so your teeth appear naturally whiter and brighter.
