I have a daily tea habit that's good for my health but not so good for my teeth as the tea can sometimes promote stains. My dental hygienist suggested I could drink through a straw but then I read that this could lead to wrinkles around the lips so I stopped doing that. Yes I'm vain like that. It hasn't been as much of an issue since I started rinsing my mouth after every cup but the idea of whiter teeth is always appealing so when Smile Brilliant contacted me about trying their LED Teeth Whitening System, I happily accepted.
The kit comes with a high intensity LED accelerator light, a whitening gel pen and a lip & cheek protector. It was quite easy to use. You just apply the gel with the brush tip of the pen evenly to the front surface of your top and bottom teeth, insert the protective lip guard over them, place the LED up to your teeth, turn on the light and let it go to work for 20 - 40 minutes each time. I was a little concerned about holding the LED light in my mouth for an extended amount of time but I usually just worked at my computer and didn't even notice it after awhile.
I was pretty pleased with the results achieved after just 3 sessions. Granted my teeth weren't terribly stained when I started, they're definitely a brighter white now. I did experience a little sensitivity after the second time I used it so I waited a few days before trying again and it was fine. I can see the advantage of this type of whitening system over gel strips. The accelerator light and 22% carbamide peroxide gel is similar to what dentists use during their in office professional whitening procedures and the application method allows you to get into the crevices between teeth and up to the gum lines which yields more even whitening results. At $39.99, the price is also quite comparable with most commercial teeth whitening kits. Do you use teeth whitening products? What types have you tried?
