Mizzou Researchers Develop Teeth-Whitening Gel Designed for Smartphone Use

    Novashine uses a specialized teeth-whitening gel specially made for ease of use that capitalizes on technology users probably already have on hand—the user’s smartphone. The kit, developed by a team of University of Missouri engineers, is sold by Mizzou spin-off company, Nanova Biomaterials. Users apply the gel, which is generally safe for enamel, to a mouthpiece with cool light, which can be plugged into a phone, computer or USB port to power the safe and effective LED lights. Applications can be repeated daily until the desired whiteness is attained.
