I have always been really wary of my teeth and how they look. I grew up being bullied for having an overbite, having nasty comments hurled at me left, right and centre, one of which was 'bugs bunny'. It was hurtful of course. I had braces which I had to wear for over two years, then retainers and then I eventually had jaw surgery, resulting in perfectly positioned teeth, but with that sorted I then started looking at the colour of my teeth.
Nowadays there are so many celebrity influencers which are opting for veneers and professional teeth whitening in order to get the perfect pearly whites, but there is an alternative to those expensive treatments. You can now do it yourself at home with teeth whitening kits becoming more widely available and popular within the drugstore and supermarkets.
I have been testing out the *iWhite Instant Teeth Whitening Kit for the best part of a month. The kit consists of 10 mouth trays that are all pre-filled with active whitening gel. The mouth trays fit and feel exactly like a retainer, it's comfortable and is flexible too so it fits everyone.
Before use I have to gently brush my teeth and place the mouth tray on top of the tooth surface. I prefer to whiten the upper and lower teeth at the same time. I leave both of the mouth trays in place for up to 20 minutes and boy is it more difficult than it sounds. Prepare for some serious drooling. Disgusting I know, it was unexpected but you have to make sure you keep your mouth closed the whole entire time.
After the 20 minutes was up I seen a noticeable difference in the colour of my teeth. Admittedly it doesn't make your teeth 8x whiter as it claims but after using the whitening kit up to 5 times, at least once a week you can start seeing better results. For even bigger, instant results you can even use it everyday. I prefer to use them every once in a while when necessary rather than using them too often as they last longer that way. Thankfully my teeth never felt sensitive after use either which I'm very happy about, if anything they felt much more stronger.
You can purchase the iWhite Instant Teeth Whitening Kit from Boots here for £34.99 but is currently on offer for £23.32 from Boots here. Such a bargain. I'm considering buying another since I've run out.
Have you tried the iWhite Instant Teeth Whitening 2 Kit? What other teeth whitening products have you tried? I'd love to know
