Alta White – My Detailed Review
Please note: If you’re planning to place an order, make sure you do it through the official website to ensure a genuine supply of the product (and not a cheaper imitation copy).
Okay… so using an ‘at-home’ teeth whitening kit is very popular these days, and it’s easy to see why. Not only are they highly effective and extremely convenient, but they often cost a fraction of the price you would have to pay for professional whitening treatment from a dentist – so they have a lot in their favor.
Over the years, I’ve seen a wide range of teeth whitening products, and the quality of these products has always been of interest to me – especially now that that do-it-yourself whitening kits can rival professional quality treatment.
But finding the ideal whitening kit can be difficult, especially if you’re not a fan of messy trays or ‘whitening strip’ products which aren’t always effective (and sometimes lead to sketchy results if your teeth aren’t perfectly aligned – which I’ll come to later).
I’ve recently had a reader ask me about one product in particular, called Alta White, and what my thoughts were. So I’ve decided to write a detailed review and share my thoughts on this particular kit. As usual, I like to skip past all the hype and sales talk, and stick to the facts. So if you’re looking for a genuine review, you’ve come to the right place.
If you currently have discolored or stained teeth, then you already know how it can effect your self-confidence. It can make you hesitant to smile, and for some, it’s difficult to relax and be at ease around people, as it makes them highly self conscious.
It doesn’t take long for less-than-white teeth to make you appear less attractive, and having yellow, brown, or simply a “darker shade of white” can be seen as a poor dental hygiene by many (although in the strictest sense, it often isn’t true). But if you’re a fan of coffee, wine, tea, or if you’re a smoker – then there’s a good chance that your teeth no longer have an attractive shade of white.
The major downside is that professional whiting treatment and tooth bleaching isn’t permanent, and it can be quite expensive – so you’ll lose a lot of money over the years if you never give “at-home” treatments a try. With this in mind, let’s take a closer look at some of the promises Alta White makes, and see whether it really lives up to the hype.
Alta White claims to give you a “celebrity smile”, which may sound a little cheesy, but at least they don’t make any ridiculous over-the-top or sensational claims like a cheesy infomercial. In general, they claim the product is easy to apply, that it helps to remove plaque on the teeth (interestingly, most other at-home treatments can’t do this), and that it gives professional results from the comfort of your own home.
While the product may work well, it is unlikely to give truly similar results that you would achieve with expensive professional treatments from a qualified dentist. But this doesn’t mean all hope is lost, because it can certainly improve the appearance of your teeth and lighten them by several shades, especially if they are currently less “white” than they could be. This means it can quickly give you a lighter, natural look – rather than an artificially white appearance.
The company behind Alta White is called Health Buy Ltd, and they’ve been around since 1996. They also make several popular alternative health products, and they say that they aim to “combine nutritional science with quality ingredients” with every product they develop. Overall, the company has a pretty solid reputation, with no complaints to the BBB, and many of their products also meet high standards, as they’re a member of the Natural Products Association.
But to get a better idea of what you can expect if you use Alta White, let’s take a look at some of the key features it promises.
Results Within 6 Days
Alta White is designed to be a 6 day treatment, so of course, they claim it gives results in this time. However, this is about the average time you can expect with most at-home treatments that don’t use super-concentrated ingredients (which may cause sensitivity). So this keeps it on par with most other treatments available.
Interestingly, Alta White doesn’t use messy trays or teeth whitening strips to achieve its results. This makes it an excellent alternative for anyone who doesn’t get on with those types of home treatments (and let’s face it, they aren’t always the most convenient or comfortable to deal with).
How Does Alta White Work?
Firstly, the product comes with 24 units of treatment, which are designed to be used 4 times a day for 6 days. This is how it works:
First, you snap the swab tip that comes in the package.
Second, you dip the application into the whitening powder.
Third, you apply the swab tip across your teeth, making sure to cover all surface areas.
The process is very straight-forward, and it’s not too unlike brushing your teeth – which is why it also helps to remove plaque due to the additional ingredients contained in the powder, as well as the ‘brushing’ motion you can use, which is unlike most other whitening products.
One of the other advantages to this method of application is that it allows you to get every tooth surface from all angles, which can be a big advantage over teeth whitening strips, which can sometimes miss certain parts of your teeth – especially if they aren’t perfectly aligned.
The Active Ingredients
The primary ingredients used in Alta White are magnesium and aluminum trihydroxide, which work to both whiten and “polish” your teeth. These ingredients are powerful, but aren’t so harsh as to cause too much sensitivity. This is important, especially if you have sensitive teeth, because many other products can cause painful side effects (I’ve heard some real horror stories when it comes to this!)
So What Are Other Real Users Saying?
Overall, Alta White has received good reviews from the majority of customers, from blogs, to forum users, and the people I’ve talked to who have experience with this product also rate it highly. One of its major selling points is that it’s easy and convenient for people who don’t like using trays and strips to whiten their teeth, and also for people with sensitive teeth (who can’t always endure the usual over-the-counter strips and trays). It’s very quick to apply, and doesn’t require much waiting around or discomfort either.
The only negative review I’ve come across seem to be because it only provides 6 days worth of whitening treatment. However, it’s important to realize that you don’t want to use this product for too many days in a row, as with any whitening product there is a chance of increased sensitivity if used for too long. So this is something to be aware of if you’re planning to use this treatment several times in a row.
- Whitens and polishes your teeth on each application, leaving your mouth feeling refreshed in this process.
- Gives great results in just 6 days time.
- Doesn’t require messy trays or uncomfortable teeth whitening strips that can be a pain to use.
- Provides gentle whitening for sensitive teeth.
- More affordable than professional treatments and many other at-home treatments.
- Very easy to apply and use.
- The results may not be as effective as professional treatment.
- Only available to purchase online, not available in stores.
Overall, Alta White is an excellent choice when it comes to choosing a DIY tooth whitening kit. It offers good value for money, and the lack of trays and strips make it one of the most comfortable and easy-to-use systems available.
While it may not give the “wow factor” of professional treatment, it’s certainly much cheaper, and it will definitely lighten your teeth by several shades or more, so you’ll have lighter, whiter teeth which still look natural.
So if you’re looking to whiten your teeth naturally without risking sensitivity or discomfort, you can’t go wrong by giving this a try. To find out more or purchase a kit, take a look at the official website.
