Ahh, teeth whitening. Most of us have tried it or at least thought about it at one point or another. There are many teeth whitening options. You can have teeth whitening done in a dentist’s office, though it’s pretty pricey. Then there are the numerous at-home teeth whitening options: You can brush your teeth with whitening toothpaste and rinse with whitening mouthwash, but how well do they really work (I’ve never really noticed any results from them)? You can use paint-on whitening gels, though they generally have an icky taste, make you salivate, and may not necessary go on or stay on evenly. Then there are the strips and trays. These probably work the best for at-home teeth whitening, unless your teeth are anything but perfectly sized, shaped, and straight. Otherwise, good luck getting those trays aligned and in place, and furthermore, kept in place.
Then there’s Smile Brilliant. They provide convenient at-home teeth whitening kits to meet all preferences and needs. Their most innovative kit, I think, is the LED Teeth Whitening System. This system takes the direct contact of teeth whitening gel, and the protective barrier of teeth whitening trays, and add in an LED light, which activates the gel and increases its whitening power. Included in the kit:
- 4ml of professional teeth whitening gel
- protective teeth trays
- high intensity ultra-blue LED gel-activate light (batteries included)
- instructions & tips
I had the opportunity to review the LED Whitening System, and while it’s a little bulky to work with initially, once it’s set up you’re good to go, and subsequent uses are much easier. To use the LED Whitening System, you first paint your teeth with the included professional whitening gel. Then, place the protective trays over your teeth. Finally, insert the activating light into your mouth, keeping the clear plastic guard between your lips and teeth. Close your mouth to hold the activating light in place, then switch it on. Keep the light on for 20-30 minutes, and use the system up to twice per day until the desired results are achieved.
Granted, I look silly when the system is in place, and for those 20-30 minutes I can’t talk, which made for some amusement one morning when I was helping my husband get the kids ready for school – I wound up communicating with them via a dry-erase board. But you know what? This stuff works, and it works nicely. The gel didn’t cause any sensitivity, and everything was very simple to get into place. And after using the system twice, I definitely noticed a difference in my teeth – they were noticeably a shade whiter. In the last few weeks I’ve made sure to use the LED Teeth Whitening System at least three times a week, and my teeth are significantly whiter than they were before I began using the system.
