GoSmile Smile Whitening Light System
Smile Whitening Light System brings dentist-quality whitening technology into the home for do-it-yourself convenience and value. You can now perform your own customized, light-assisted teeth whitening treatments anytime, anywhere! Smile Whitening Light System was specifically engineered to boost the stain-fighting power of our patented whitening ampoules. Used together, you can achieve a visibly whiter smile in just one sitting!
The lightweight, elegantly shaped device is easy to hold and the detachable and washable mouthpiece fits comfortably between lips, helping the light reach all visible tooth surfaces. A built-in timer lets you know when each pass is over–three passes are one treatment.
Smile Whitening Light System was scientifically designed to deliver the optimal range of light wavelengths at the right power and placement to efficiently activate the whitening ingredient in the ampoules. Stains are visibly reduced in as little as 30 minutes. The device plus ampoules can be used every two weeks to keep your teeth white!
I’ve tried a lot of whitening products, and this was definitely the most unique! I’ve never had my teeth professionally whitened, but I have tried lots of Crest Whitestrips, and the regular GoSmile whitening products.
To use this, you brush your teeth, pat your teeth dry with a tissue, then use one of the Whitening Ampoules and put the Whitening gel on your teeth, turn on the Smile Whitening Light, and place the top of it inside your lips so the light hits your teeth. You do this for ten minutes, and then the light will Beep, signaling you to repeat the process again with a new Whitening Ampoule. You do this a total of three times, and it takes about a half hour.
The first thing I noticed was that the Whitening Ampoule gel kind of burns your gums when you apply it to your teeth. It’s not anything really painful, more of a burn you’d get from eating some really strong peppermint gum or something super minty. Keeping the light in your mouth doesn’t hurt, but it is kinda awkward looking, so I’m gonna recommend you do this when you’re not expecting to see anyone (you can’t talk, either, and you don’t wanna laugh, so I’d recommend being alone!)
One downside to this that is inevitable is the amount of spit your mouth produces. When I went to do the second round of whitening, I was kinda grossed out by the amount of spit that was inside the light (gross, I know, but It has to be said!) It’s not a huge deal once you get over the shock factor if you’re not expecting it, you just rinse the light, pat it dry, pat your teeth dry, and repeat the first steps of applying the gel and using the light.
Something I definitely did like about this is there is really virtually no sensitivity problems, other than the initial minty-burn from the gel. A few months ago I bought the Crest Whitestrips Advance, and actually had to stop using them after only a few days because they hurt my teeth so much, and I’ve never had problems with products making my teeth sensitive!
The pack comes with enough Whitening Ampoules for 4 treatments, and they recommend doing this once every 2 weeks, but it can be done once a week. They sell refills of the Whitening Ampoules as well, so you can continue the treatment if you wanted extra white teeth! Whitening once every 2 weeks seems a lot more convenient to me than having to wear something like WhiteStrips for two weeks.
Another downside- and this is a big one- is the price. I didn’t know the price of this when I first used it, but this retails for $198, or $178 if you use the coupon below. I think thats fairly expensive, I think you could probably find deals where you could get your teeth professionally whitened for that price, however, I’m assuming that would leave your teeth feeling much, much more sensitive than this.
Is it worth it? I think this would be worth it for people who have an event they’re going to and need their teeth whitened right away, or if you have sensitive teeth. Most whitening products out there take 1-2 weeks for results to show, so I do think it’s impressive that you can see results after just a half hour.
