Every mom wants one of those movie star gleaming white smiles. But like most moms I feel having it done at the dentist is just too expensive and time consuming. I am teaching two kids and trying to keep a house up and running. I don't have time to hit the dentist office just to whiten my smile. Well this week my movie star white smile came to me in the mail. Yup I received a great little package from the Dial A Smile Professional Home Teeth Whitening system. Its called whitening Lightning its a professional home teeth whitening system. You get 3 treatments in the box and it says it will teeth 3-4 shades whiter in 20 minutes. You can find it hear www.whiteninglighting.com and if you use this coupon code Juliekit at check out you can get the kit for $69.00. its a lot cheaper than going to a dentist and I can do it in my house while the kids are working on a project or napping.
Ok so whats in the box you get 1 paper shade dial, 1 dispensing tub, 1 hand held LED light, 1 gel syringe that contains 3
treatments, 3 teeth wipes, 1 applicator brush, and 3 vitamin E swabs. and some directions.
So basically you hold this shade guide up to your teeth and determine what shade your teeth are. First you squeeze out 1.5ml of the whitening gel into the dispensing tub. Then you use one of the teeth wipes to dry all of your teeth using a circular motion. next you snap off the blue striped end of one of the vitamin e swabs and apply it to gums and inside of lips it helps to protect your lips and gums from the whitening gel. Next you use applicator brush and brush on a generous amount of the whitening gel to your teeth. You want to be sure to smile wide to limit how much gel gets on your lips and gums. Then you turn on the LED and hold it no more than 1-2 in from your mouth for 20 minutes. The directions also say that you can put it directly in your mouth but it may cause sensitivity so do what feels comfortable. So that's the short version of the directions.
So this after I read the directions a couple times over I decide why not give it a try. I take the little shade dial in the bathroom and determine my teeth to be between a 4 and a 5. Next up is drying my teeth with the wipes this part was not so bad and went rather quickly. I applied the vitamin E swab trying to be sure I get my gums and lips covered good. Next comes applying the gel. try to smile big and apply this stuff to my teeth really wasn't hard because HotRod Princess was standing next to me making faces and whose not going to smile at that.. I Opt to put the light in my mouth because honestly I can see my self holding this thing 1-2 inches from my mouth while i try to smile and help the girls do class work. I set the timer for 20 minutes. ....... and I wait and wait and wait. ok who knew 20 minutes could be this long right. I feel like a total goof ball walking around the house with this blue light in my mouth but hey the girls think its funny and kept making faces at me. My 20 min is finally up I brush off the gel and bam my teeth are noticeably whiter about 2-3 shades. I am quite happy with it so I decided to store my other two applications in the fridge( the directions say I can do that) and use it at a later date. The company does recommend not eating or drinking anything that can stain your teeth with in 24 hours. Results will vary and how long it last depends on what you eat and drink but that goes for whitening treatments done at dentist offices also. Its also not recommended for expectant or nursing moms.
