Having a nice smile is so important! Most of the time, the first thing I notice about a person is their smile, so I like to keep mine super white.
I’ve always whitened my teeth from time to time- I drink a lot of coffee, red wine, and tea, so whitening my teeth is a must if I don’t want them to stain. I used to use Crest Whitestrips, but those are very pricey and they always leave my teeth super sensitive!
I recently picked up a product from my local Walmart that was about $6 and promised white teeth in just five minutes. I have seen this product on the shelves before, but never gave it a shot until now. This is the Plus White 5 Minute Speed Whitening System.
In the box, you get a blue rubbery mouthpiece, the whitening gel in a squeeze tube, and a whitening rinse to use when you’re done.
The directions say to apply a thin layer of gel inside both sides of the mouthpiece (one layer for the top and the bottom), insert it into your mouth, and that you don’t have to apply pressure to it by biting down.
To apply the gel, you don’t need a lot, just a thin strip. I then placed the mouthpiece into my mouth, and waited. The gel contains peroxide, so it almost immediately starts to foam up. The gel doesn’t taste very good, so don’t swallow it! The five minutes went by super fast, and then I just removed it and made sure to rub all of the gel off my teeth. So easy! Afterwards, I used the whitening rinse, which tasted really good and minty.
I didnt see big results until the third time using this. My husband and daughter both said that my teeth were a LOT whiter. I used it once a day for a week, and my teeth are so white now!
I would not recommend using this product for any longer than 5 minutes, as it can cause sensitivity and mouth sores. Just stick with the five minutes, and you’ll be good in a few days!
I maintain a white smile by using this product a few times a week, using Arm and Hammer Extreme Whitening Toothpaste, and brushing my teeth as much as I can.
Have you tried this?
