Regular readers might remember me mentioning that not too long ago a small person told me I had teeth which were yellow like a pirate. At the end of that post I jokingly added that if anyone would like me to review their teeth whitening product please get in touch. Well lucky for me the good people over at ‘True White’ did. Yay!
This system was coming from the USA and my first mistake was not specifying the country when I gave them my address. As a result my package went via Sydney rather than straight to Scotland. Oopsie.
When it did arrive I was surprised how small it was. The Advanced Plus program for two people to have 10 treatments managed to fit through my letterbox which was great as it saved me schlepping up to the post office when it arrived when we were out.
Unfortunately not only was the package tiny but so were the instructions. Thankfully I have good eyesight but I’m pretty sure my mum would have struggled.
I read the instructions a few times to make sure I had understood everything. First I had to boil water to heat the mouth trays and mould them to my teeth. Not too complicated.
The next part was a little dozy of me. I loaded up the mouth tray and whacked them in before grabbing the as yet untested LED light. The instructions had failed to mention there was a piece of plastic inside the battery compartment preventing the LED light from being switched on during transportation. So I sat like a wally for 15 minutes with a light in my mouth for no reason. Do’h. Always test first folks.
The instructions sheet warns you will feel a little tingling. I was a little concerned as usually when my dentist says that it means I’m about to feel a world of pain. To be fair it was just a little tingling which wasn’t that uncomfortable. I did feel a bit stupid with the light hanging out of my mouth for 15 minutes but I guess it’s a small price to pay for kids not to tell you you have yellow pirate teeth.
You’re advised to do the procedure twice (so 30 minutes) on consecutive days three times. I have just completed the first treatment and I can see a slight lightening. I’ve got three more days to go, hopefully at the end I will never again be compared to a pirate.
The system was significantly cheaper than prices I was quoted at the dentist. It was painless and it allowed me to work while completing the treatment rather than being consigned to a dentist chair, attempting to answer questions with variation of ‘unghhh’ s. I was expecting a slightly more dramatic change but on reflection a subtle and gradual lightening is preferable and there is less chance of me blinding someone when flashing my gnashers.
Here are the details if you’re a bit worried preschoolers are going to start commenting on your teeth:
