|Dr Song Professional Teeth Whitening Kit|
One of the first things a person notices about us is our smiles. We all want a beautiful white smile but cleanings alone won't normally accomplish that. I admit that I slack when it comes to the dentist. I get the kids to their appointments every 6 months but I don't always make it every 6 months...or year. I know I should do better but the last thing I want to do I schedule yet another appointment. Do I really need to go over the list of doctors that we see each month? It's not even a money thing. Cleanings are free. Our dental insurance is actually really good. I have a $50 deductible and then any work that needs to be done is free up to like $1000. It's 100% I am tired of going to doctor's offices and just do not want to go to another one right now. New Year's resolution maybe? Yeah, probably not.
I drink coffee...lots and lots of coffee. I also drink coke. I do a lot of those things that dentists fuss at you about. (And the real reason that I don't want to go comes out) My teeth aren't horribly stained. I mean, I do brush them. I even do it more than once a day!! I don't get to the dentist as often as I should but I do take care of my teeth. They are however, not as bright as I would like. They are a little dull, I guess is how you would describe them. I tried several of the "home remedies". I never really saw any results from that.
I recently began using the Dr Song Professional Teeth Whitening Kit. I wanted to go a shade or 2 lighter. I remember the episode of Friends when Ross had his teeth whitened. You know you saw that one!! I think of that every time I whiten my teeth so the first time I use any product I always use it for less time than the package says. I don't want to glow in the dark like Ross did. It's crazy how things stick in your mind! See how easily I get side tracked?! Anyway..
This kit is very simple to use. That is, if you read the directions first. Always read the directions..don't just skim them. READ the directions. For instance, the directions state: Bring water to a boil. Pour the water into a cup and let sit for 1 minute. Dip the tray into the water for 5 seconds. Make sure the edges do not fold onto each other (occurs when dipped for too long, if this happens, reshape tray back to original form, allow to cool and try again). I may not have been paying close attention when I was doing this. If you drop the tray into boiling water it will shrink into a tiny little piece of plastic. Luckily, I happened to have a spare tray that is identical to these trays and once I took my time and followed the directions it worked perfectly! The cleaning kit contains the trays, cleaning gel, light and applicator brush. You simply apply the gel to your teeth, insert the trays and place the light in your mouth. You leave the gel in for the amount of time you choose from the times on the instructions and you are finished. I chose 15 minutes. I have some sensitivity on my front teeth and I chose a shorter time because I didn't want to have any sensitivity when I removed it.
I was shocked when I removed it! My teeth were at least a full shade lighter! I think the light makes a huge difference. It seems to speed up the process. The kit includes enough gel for over 50 uses. It is currently listed for $34.99 with free shipping on Amazon with Amazon prime. That's less than $1.00 per use. You really can't beat that price! And it really works!
I spoke with the company about the sensitivity that I experience. They also sent me a product called their remineralization gel. I wasn't familiar with this type of product before this. This product is applied AFTER the whitening treatment to desensitize teeth. It also restores minerals and helps strengthen enamel with sodium fluoride and potassium nitrate. This also include enough for 50 treatments. I did not experience any sensitivity after using the whitener but I applied this just to be safe.
My friend Nicky at Life With Six Children also tried the Dr Song Professional Teeth Whitening Kit recently. She posted several before and after pictures. She even added a few of her using the kit. You can check our her review here.
