The best part about this whitening system for me was definitely the ease of doing it from home. They sent me a kit which included:
Teeth Whitening Trays
3-Way, pre-paid postage
Custom dental molds
Professional teeth whitening gel
There were easy-to-follow instructions about taking my own teeth molds at home, which I sent back to them in the pre-paid envelope so they could make custom trays to fit my mouth exactly. The trays were custom made and quickly sent back to me and I started the whitening process. I have really sensitive teeth so I was fearful at first, but the desensitizing gel you put in the trays after a whitening session definitely helped with sensitivity. I did a total of 8 sessions over the past few months:
Session 1: 40 minutes
Session2: 45 minutes
Session 3: 40 minutes
Session 4: 1.5 hours
Session 5: 30 mins
Session 6: 1.5 hours
Session 7: 1.5 hours
Session 8: 2 hours
I think I was filling the trays with too much whitening gel at first, because I was experiencing some burning and tooth sensitivity. However, once I checked with one of their super nice representatives (who touch base with you about your process along the way), she told me to use less and I had no problems after that. So without further adieu, here are my before and after photos:
My teeth are definitely whiter than before (hooray!), except for the bottom one which is actually a fake tooth that got knocked out in a boogie-boarding accident when I was little!
The cons for me would be: it is actually pretty difficult when working full time to carve out a decent chunk of time to wear the trays for a good hour or 2 when you won't be eating or drinking anything. A one shot whitening system would obviously be quicker, but it only took me a few months because I did it at a very leisurely pace. You could get the same results in only 8 days if you did it every day!
The pros of the process are: the comfort of doing it in your own home, friendly customer service, whiter teeth, and the ease of doing it on your own schedule!
