There are so many people telling your how to whiten your teeth at home, but nothing really ever seems to get you the bright white teeth that you see other people having.. what gives..
They must be getting their teeth whitened at the dentist.. and paying an arm and a leg.
If only those kinda results could be gotten at home.. humph…
Recently my husband mentioned that he wanted to whiten his teeth and I figured it’s approaching the 2021 and I’m starting a YouTube channel, so why not give it a try. BTW- if you haven’t subbed to my YT channel head over and check it out.
My Teeth Whitening Routine
To make sure that I am not wasting my time and not seeing results (raise your hand if you’re impatient too) I stacked a few products together.
I am planning to use Colgate Renewal Whitening Toothpaste (link), Colgate Optic White Mouthwash (link) and the Aura Glow Teeth Whitening Kit (link). I figured if I’m going to whiten my teeth… I’m gunna whiten my teeth. I will also be using an electric toothbrush (Phillips Sonicare 5100)(link) that I have been using for a few years now.
After doing a few hours of research reading reviews and watching YouTube videos, I chose the Aura Glow home system from Amazon (link). I saw that it had 28,000 (yes, thousand!) reviews on Amazon and it still managed to keep 4.2 outta 5 stars. That’s pretty damn good TBH.
So we splurged and bought a few kits.
What Comes in the Aura Glow Teeth Whitening Kit?
Each kit contains 2 syringes full of the whitening gel, a mouth tray, an LED light and directions. The kit is supposed to last for 20 uses, and you’re supposed to use it daily for up to 14 days at a time.
The mouth tray is like a gel/gum material. It reminds me of those bouncy balls or gummy things you used to be able to get from the 25 cent machines at the grocery store when I was a kid.
First Use Results
As you can see, there wasn’t much of a difference after the first use. The directions say to use the kit for up to 14 days or until desired results are achieved. Here’s to hoping that results will come…
Overall, the taste was barely noticeable, which was good. But I did find that the mouth tray was a bit big for my mouth and heavy after a while.
Oh! And the LED light beeps and turns off every 10 minutes.. I thought that it beeped to count down the 30 minutes that you are supposed to use it, so I did kinda screw up there.
I’ll let you know how it turns out in the end of the 2 weeks using the teeth whitening kit, toothpaste and mouthwash.
