Have you ever tried to whiten your teeth at home?

I’m sure most of us have tried the at home “strips”, right? I have NEVER used them properly. First, I lack the patience to sit for the prescribed amount of time for each treatment. I’ve put them on, and then ripped them off 5 minutes later when I feel that horrible ZING shooting from my tooth into my skull.

I have never finished an entire box. I think my best record is using probably 10 strips over about 3 months time. I don’t know if they’ve worked or not….but psychologically I always feel better even after using one for just 10 minutes.

Haven’t used them in quite some time. Every time I go to Starbucks, or indulge in a cup of tea at home, I consider my pearly whites. I like having a white smile, how can I preserve it???

Enter my latest find.

well, look what caught my eye!

well, look what caught my eye!

I was walking through Walgreens, minding my own business, looking for rubbing alcohol. I think the little laser gun next to the smiling face distracted me. I looked closer….. on SALE for $34.00!!  Super fast teeth whitening with NO sensitivity??!!!

Is there even a question about purchasing this? I didn’t think so.

Now, of course I am skeptical. But it also looks really, really cool. And, it’s on sale.

I am on a mission to prove to myself and my fellow blogger if this kit really lives up to it’s claim. You’re welcome.

I’ve read all the directions. I can do a gazillion treatments in a row, slight chance of some gum irritation, or gum whiteness….but nothing that will last. That’s for the one day results. I can spread my treatments over a week. Whatever I want really. Bottom line seems to be 10 treatments for noticeable effect…. and up to 20 treatments for best effect. After that, I can keep the system, order replacements of whatever I need, and retreat a couple times a year.

Pretty stoked.

So here goes. I’m probably going to end up doing the week treatment, given my track record of follow through. I’ll post before and after, and you can be the judge. Then decide if you also need to have this amazing little wonder kit, or if  you can just save the money for more teeth-staining coffee 🙂
