Review: Dr. Song Professional Teeth Whitening Kit
*Disclosure* I was sent the following product for review purposes. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are 100% honest and my own, like always!
Hello everyone! Today I'm going to be doing a review on the Dr. Song Professional Teeth Whitening Kit. I was excited to be able to try this at-home whitening kit since I haven't used any kind of teeth whitening product in a long time.
The Dr. Song Professional Teeth Whitening Kit comes with 8 44% Carbamide Peroxide tubes, a gel applicator brush, a white LED light and thermoform trays. I also chose to get the remineralization gel (blue tube) as well because it's supposed to help with teeth sensitivity.
The peroxide tubes are good for 50 applications total, which is pretty awesome, and you don't need alot of the gel to get the job done.
After brushing and flossing your teeth, you take the little brush that comes with the kit and brush the peroxide gel on your teeth, avoiding the gums. If you get some on your gums, it can temporarily bleach them and cause sensitivity.
Before you put the trays into your mouth, you can bring water to a boil and dip them in the hot water for 5 seconds so they mold to your teeth better. I personally find the trays a bit bulky and annoying, but hey, they're part of the process.
Once you place the trays over your teeth, you can use the led light over your teeth for the first 15 minutes of treatment. Treatments can range from 15 minutes up to 4 hours if you desire that. I only do 15 minute treatments because of my sensitive teeth and gums.
After treatment, you place the remineralization gel into the trays and place on your teeth for 30 minutes up to 4 hours.
Has this kit worked for me? I can safely say, yes it has! It's quite a pain in the butt with the trays though. I have a pretty tiny mouth and the trays are so big, they can sometimes dig into the side of my mouth and hurt. I feel like after only 1 application my teeth were whiter, even though I only used it for 15 minutes. Now, I feel the remineralization gel didn't do much to help with my sensitivity. It could just be me honestly because I really have such sensitive teeth and gums. Because of the sensitivity I have, I can only do these whitening treatments twice a week at most, but I see results everytime. I used to use Crest Whitening strips, but stopped after my teeth and gums got too sensitive. I prefer this kit only because I feel it whitens faster and the sensitivity doesn't last as long. Also, it's a cheaper alternative as well, at only $34.99. The remineralization gel tubes cost $9.99 if you want to try those. You really can't beat that price considering you get 50 applications with this kit. I do recommend this if you want an at-home teeth whitening kit at a good price where you can see results quickly.
