I’m decided to go ahead and try out the Rembrant 2-hour whitening kit this morning, and I thought some other bees might like to follow along.
(please excuse my giant mouth close up. It’s super early, and I look like poo, so a full face photo wasn’t happening. Also, when did my front tooth go crooked again?)
This kit promises whiter teeth in 2 hours. The kit includes 2 trays (top and bottom) and 8 ampules full of whitening gel.
It’s basically four 20-minute sessions, with 10 minute breaks in between where you rinse with water really well, totaling 2 hours.
The trays are actually pretty cool- you soak them in hot water for a few seconds and they go soft, and then you put them in and form them to your teeth. Simple, but effective.
I was also pleasantly surprised to find that one ampule actually has enough in it for both trays. You really don’t want to put too much gel on these things, because it will make your gums super sensitive.
Since I was able to stretch the whitening gel out, that means I’ll be able to use the rest when I re-whiten. No need to buy another kit.
Something else that I noticed- you will need to spit. A lot. Might want to consider carrying a cup around, unless you feel like running to the bathroom every few minutes.
After photo #1 to come in a few… my first 20 minutes are almost up!
After The First 20 Minutes
My teeth do seem to be a little lighter…. maybe. Kind of hard to tell right now.
I did start to notice a bit of sensitivity- but I have sensitive teeth on a normal day.
The sensitivity was worst right after putting them in (gum sensitivity) but that went away after a little bit. I assume that’s because I had to spit so much.
Then, right before I had to take them out, I noticed that one of my lower front teeth was starting to feel tingly… this is one of my most sensitive spots, so I’m not surprised.
However, the pain went away as soon as I took the tray out and rinsed, so I’m on to round 2!
After the 2nd session
Oh Hi! I have a face! Morning Bees!
I’m half way through at this point, and I suppose I’m starting to see a difference. It’s a slight difference, but I *think* I can tell… or maybe I’m just fooling myself.
Just a note, my dental work (a little patch on my front tooth where I chipped it) hasn’t started to show yet. Whitening products won’t whiten dental work, so this is both a positive and a negative, I suppose.
Positive: I may not have to pay for them to re-patch it.
Negative: My teeth aren’t becoming drastically whiter…. yet.
